I've been longing to revamp my vintage shop and really make it cater to pin-up and rockabilly in addition to offering true vintage wares. I have lots of fabric set aside for bows and scarves, I just dont seem to have the time to actually sit down and start sewing, or rephotograph bows, or post some new vintage items in the shop. It's maddening really, but I'm grateful to have a job that now affords me a little extra money to indulge in revamping the store.
I finally caught up on my laundry this weekend, and washed my quilts and comforters, and got everything vacuumed. I try to keep up with it, but with two dogs, they shed everywhere!
I wanted to mop floors, but just ran out of time. Maybe next weekend.
I'm very much jealous of my fellow Dolls headed to Viva. I wish I couldve gone this year, but no such luck. Riot is just around the corner though, and I hope they post the schedule soon, so I know what day Deke is playing and can plan accordingly. I want to do some recon on the vendors as well, to see if its somewhere I would be interested in vending my stuff.
In an interesting turn of events, I find myself lately looking into some 60's fashion to supplement my 50's addiction. Especially styled after Joan on Mad Men. Kind of a sexy wiggle style.
I stumbled across this great pencil skirt pattern, and naturally purchased it
Mccall #3830, View C
On sale right now on the website for $1.88
It has the right look and length, without the high waist that is NOT flattering on a bigger Betty such as myself
I'd like to make one in this fabric:
