I have recently had my sewing machine serviced. I got it as a 21st birthday present (a long time ago) and have not really had much use for it until now. In school we learnt to make basic items and I even made a fully lined skirt and jacket, which when finished, hang in the wardrobe for years before finding their way into the charity bag.
But now look what I found in a second-hand store in my mother’s home town – classic patterns from vogue from the 1960´s and 1970´s. The patterns cost only £1 each. I love the styles of that period, feminine and simple. I am going to give one of them a try, once of course I can find suitable and fairly priced fabric !! keep you posted.
