Not much sewing going on this weekend.
Summer has finally arrived in my sewing room and the temperature is somewhere between the southern corner of purgatory and absolute Hades. I hate putting the air conditioner on so early in the season, but it's not even comfortable to sew in my underwear in there. And the cats refuse to keep me company.
So this weekend I've avoided the workroom and gotten off my otherwise unmotivated butt and listed a load of my old vintage stuff in my Etsy shop. I love it all, but most of it no longer fits my body, and none of it really fits my life. So I'm letting it go.
But I wanted to share some of them with you, because they are, after all, so pretty.
And if anyone is interested in anything, please let me know through Etsy that you found the link here, and shipping will be free. (I like knowing the stuff is going to a good home!) US only, though.
What do we have here? Several silk sheath dresses with intersting bodice construction, the draped dress that I've always called the Flower Bomb, an aggressively cheerful aqua floral with pleated skirt, and a ridiculous boiled wool jacket with chenille embroidery.
The jacket, unfortunately, has some moth damage on the front, but I've been keeping it all these years thinking I'd remove the embellishment and reuse it. It's not gonna happen, but that's not to say someone else wouldn't be more likely to do it than I am.
There's still more in the closets, but I can't face dressing and undressing Evelyn in this heat. I think it even bothers her.
