Proof of how ridiculous it is to stash fabrics. I bought this fabric at a vintage fair in Campbelltown FIVE years ago (and it is definitely not the oldest piece in my stash, I am ashamed to admit). For five years, I have been transporting and storing this piece of fabric. Ridiculous.
Still - it made up into a damn cute little pinafore for Little Miss O. Now if only I could find where I put the pattern to put the pieces away. It's a bit hectic here mid-destash.
It's the same vintage pattern I used here and here, but this time I used cute spotty bias (extra wide from Daiso) instead of doing facings. It's cord, so again, will be great for winter - again with that red skivvy and tights combo. It's a shame, but I think her black patent Doc Martens are too small this year....as they would be the cherry on top.
I think it was about $5-$10 for the piece - I recall sticking to the lower price bracket at the market - and the bias was 108 yen, so a dress for about $6 - $11 or so. Not bad.
Confession time....how long have you been harbouring some of your fabrics?
