More Vintage Pattern Love
Here are two patterns I am considering making. The left is a cute peasant top, this looks pretty simple, note that I fall somewhere between the 32 bust specified on the pattern and the 42 bust scribbled on the envelope, but I think I could modify this pretty easily. This one came from my sister with her expert thrifting skills and fabulous fun taste.
The right hand pattern is a simple wrap skirt with an a-line shape, talk about perfect for my skill level. A bias binding edge, a buttonhole and a bunch of mostly straight seams, this would be really cute. It may be hard to appreciate with the drab beige fabric in the larger illustration but I can see this in a fun springtime fabric, perhaps with a different pocket style. I am not thrilled about the center front seam, but I think I can make it work. I found this pattern a couple of weeks back at an otherwise dreary thrift store, it's one of may favorite pattern scores, it's simple but I think it would be really flattering.
Progress continues on the Backyard Leaves scarf, I am 6 repeats into the second half, so there are about 5 repeats to go. I will spare you the boring in-progress shots, but I hope to have it blocking by the end of the weekend. I have some car rides and a ferry ride that might be just what I need to finish it off.
