I got some great sewing-related gifts for my birthday!
First up, my mom sent me a couple of vintage patterns, including a Betsey Johnson halter wrap dress with optional hood from the 1970s - super cute. I think I need one...
Cidell gave me these super cool fashion illustration books by John Peacock, they highlight the fashions during each decade of the 1950s and 1960s.
Check out this dress from 1969 with the scalloped edging, it's exactly like a Sybil Connolly vintage Vogue pattern I own.
And from my BIL and SIL, a couple of items from my Amazon wishlist - a pattern drafting book by Jack Handford, and Lotta Prints - How to Print With Anything, From Potatoes to Linoleum by Lotta Jansdotter. I like the idea of adding a little something to an umbrella.
