Some of us girls over at the Sew Weekly Sewing Circle have been taking part in a pattern swap. The idea being, that everyone’s names get put into a hat and you send a pattern, and a little something extra for Christmas, to the person whose name is drawn for you.
I was very excited when I got home from work the other day and sitting waiting for me on the coffee table was a package from none other than the super-fabulous Debi from Scotland!
(If you haven’t seen Debi’s blog before, I highly recommend you check it out. She makes the most gorgeous creations, lots of 1940’s styles, and has the cutest photo shoots all around Edinburgh. Make sure you see her 1935 cape, it’s one of my favourites.)
Anyway, check out what the lovely Debi sent me!
There’s a lovely pattern from 1940 – Simplicity 3407.
Some pretty pink ric-rac (which I’m planning on using for version 1 of the dress (the pink one) in the pattern, as it has ric-rac trim in the design).
A gorgeous sparkly 1930’s-esque card (with a lovely note – thanks Debi!)
Shiny gold braid trim.
A super-cute black heart buckle (which will be the focal point of a dress, as soon as I figure out which pattern and which fabric will set it off best).
And a snuggly soft tartan scarf in pretty blues and purples.
Very exciting, and I can’t wait to get started on the dress! 🙂
