More vintage patterns on etsy!

Well, i happened upon the garage sale of my dreams Wednesday.
vintage fabric:
*this is just a taste*
my camera is being a big fat dummy (i'm handling it so maturely) ;)
so i had to scan this to get a decent image.

vintage patterns:

*these a just the few i'm willing to part with right now*
Available for purchase in the Shop.

i also got a few vintage pieces of clothes...
sadly, you will have to wait to see those until said camera starts behaving better...
or i get a new one...
(which i really do need) :)

Princess seams

i don't really think of myself as a *princess* kinda gal.
i'm not crazy about tiaras & i'm only mildly amused by glitter covered objects...
(though i am a bit of  very much an anglophile...i'm more in love with English cottages than the monarchy)
i do, however, love princess seams...
this dress was meant to have sleeves and a collar.
unfortunately, i didn't have enough fabric.
i rather like it as is....makes me think WW2 fashion!
 i used binding around the armhole...
i'm really hoping i can get more of this fabric to make something for the Shop!

New Blog (Welcome!)...
new Etsy shop DelightfulHandwork...
i thought it might be fun to start everything afresh...
The inspiration for the name comes from Proverbs 31:13
" with her hands in delight."

Here is the 1st of (hopefully) many listings...
At the moment i'm just listing vintage patterns until i actually *make* something to list...
which kind of makes the shop/blog name a little confusing...
Ah well, it's i guess it fits! :P
