What's On My Sewing Table...


I'm carefully refashioning a gorgeous silk vintage dress with four leaf clover print. It has such darling little details that I'm reluctant to cut out, such as handworked loops for bra straps and lining attachment. But it's been sitting in my wardrobe unworn for years, so hopefully a mended zipper, sway back adjustment and new neckline will breathe new life into it. Fingers crossed in time for an upcoming wedding so I don't need to buy a new dress! Have you ever taken scissors to a vintage garment?

What's on your sewing table, please?
