A Slight Etsy Obsession…

Recently I’ve discovered Etsy (I told you I was new to the sewing and blogging). At the risk of sounding exceptionally naive – I was so pleased with this website. It was like walking into Aladdin’s Cave. And I’ve become slightly obsessed.

I have many items on my favourites list – mostly dress patterns – but also coat patterns, vintage dresses (for inspiration), blouse patterns and copious amounts of material.

Here are the patterns I bought:

Clockwise from top left: PatternRunway 1302 (easy Kimono dress with elasticated waist); Simplicity 3599 (c.1960s, dress with Kimono sleeves, gathered waist, full skirt); Simplicity 6227 (sleeveless scoop-neck dress with over-skirt and/or over-top) and last but not least Vogue 2050 by Calvin Klein (strapless fitted dress with semi-fitted waist length jacket).

Immensely excited to start making these…. Having some issues with finishing Vogue 1102 (far too distressing to discuss at present, will come to that on a later post)

  1. I’m very glad you’ve discovered Etsy… it’s very easy to get caught up looking at vintage patterns and there’s so many shops that if you do a bit of searching you’ll be able to find some fabulous patterns at reasonable prices – if I haven’t bought them first!

    1. Yeah with a lot of them I can’t decide if I actually like the pattern or just the nostalgia, which probably isn’t a good thing – I do want to be able to wear the things I make! I do need to get better at looking for the good deals especially with the high cost of postage out in the Antipodes 🙂
