Last week I shopped a bit at Tradera (Swedish Ebay) and thrifted some very nice things. The blouse above is a 50s thing for my sister (her very first vintage item! I'm so proud =) )
Below is a "fake blouse" with a cute huge collor (what are these things really called in English? Anyone knows?)
My dear friends Malin and Johannes were married in August, but as it was a surprise wedding I of course didn't have a gift, so I came up with the idea of sewing them some dance clothes from the Swing era. Johannes will get a vest (I've got a pattern from -51 for that, a bit late, but it'll work) and a pair of pants. So imagine my delight when this zoot suit pattern turned up for auction! I'll probably alter the width of the pants to be more 30s, but it's going to be so much easier with a pattern to start from.
And last but not least, a pair of vintage stockings with seam, made in wool and nylon. So practical, and actually possible to wear a bit longer than the superthin stockings. I've been wishing for a pair, but thinking it an impossibility that any would appear at the market.
It's such a great feeling getting packages with the mail, it somehow feels like a gift, even though I've already paid for it =) Anyone else gets that feeling?
Have a great weekend!
