sewing backlog

Buoyed by the "success" of my first sewing project (I still haven't managed to get any further than cutting out the pattern pieces!) I started browsing Etsy for vintage sewing patterns for little people and ended up buying this beauty.  I can't work out what size it is (size 24, apparently) but, looking at the pattern pieces, it's definitely still a good bit too big for Dulcie, which is a good thing.  I secretly wish this pattern was in my size, though it may not be too accommodating to bosoms, I suppose.  Incidentally, if anyone knows of any cute but not too tricky patterns for any clothes I might be able to make for myself (I'm thinking dresses and tops in particular) then please do let me know.  Once my space is reorganised, I'm hoping I can turn my sewing machine into my constant companion.

p.s. This is where I got the pattern above from.


  1. Hello lady! I've just bought the Laurel pattern from Collette Patterns and it's wonderful. Mega easy and loads of potential - you should defo give it a go!

    1. Thanks for the tip-off, Emily! The whole website looks very promising. I didn't think the Laurel was really my style intially, but looking at some of the photos on Flickr, I think a few of the variations could be quite up my street. Thanks :)


Hello! I'm sorry that I've had to turn on the word verification feature again, but my inbox was being flooded with very dull spam. Genuine comments always brighten my day though, so thank you for taking the time to leave one :)
