Something completely incredible happened the other day.
I went over to my Grandma's for dinner, and showed her the dress I made. We were talking about how I should buy some vintage patterns to use, when she went "Oh! I think I might have some old patterns somewhere. Let me just go look."
And then.... and then....!!
She pulled out THESE!!!
About 40 or so AMAZING VINTAGE PATTERNS, some dating all the way back to 1950!!!!!!!!! Far flippin' out. I was so so happy, and hugged my lovely Granny about a million times.
AND THEN! EVEN MORE THEN!
I was still getting over the shock of being the new owner of these amazingly incredible vintage patterns, when my Grandma suddenly remembered about all these old buttons and vintage cotton that she owned as well.
LOOK AT THEM! Aren't these buttons amazing?? How cute are the little elephant ones? And the thread is so nice, and pure cotton too (which my Grandma thinks you can't buy anymore!)
And she gave them all to me! I am one very, very lucky girl.
I'm off to make another dress now with this super sweet kitschy bright orange dog-print fabric, which I also got from Spotlight, but I'm going to use one of those old dress patterns this time. Wish me luck!
