I still have to take and post pictures of all the clothes I sewed last weekend, yet I’m already thinking about my next projects. For some reason I’m drawn to this odd vintage hat on the upper left:
This is Vogue 7464. I’ve never once had a shred of desire to make a vintage hat. In fact, I haven’t made a hat of any kind in 5 years. I actually look really stupid in hats. If I did make this, I would just display it and never wear it. It just seems fun to make.
Then there’s this pattern which I own already. I suddenly have renewed interest in it:
It’s that one on the lower left that’s got me in its grip. This one is Vogue 8642. It’s made from faux leather or suede. I’m finding some good prices on ebay. The one on the upper left is also really cool.
That is totally Natasha from America’s Next Top Model, but I digress. I don’t have any suitable home dec fabric to use so I ordered a 1/2 yard piece on ebay. I think I should have ordered more fabric to make that tote bag as well. I need a gym bag, since hell froze over and I’m now working out up to 6 days a week. Why, you may ask? Because I got to the point that I was disgusted by what I saw in the mirror. My body enjoys storing almost all its excess fat in my belly area; not cute. So you may not see any pants or skirts without elastic waists from me for awhile. Not unless I made the waistbands easy to take in.
