My Scrapbook Tumblr

Oh, I have been collecting whatever ideas catch my fancy at what I think of as my scrapbook. I tend to go through phases: for awhile there I was collecting riding coat inspiration, and there's been a lot of vintage dresses recently. It's worth a look.

The Pink Dress

I wanted, my whole life, a pink dress. And somehow I never had one. So I decided that I was going to make a pink dress. A really nifty one, too. I was going to make this one:
The pink fabric was a nice grown-up fabric. It's amazing how many child-centric prints there are, and even if it's just a neutral pattern, there's a baby-pink colour that still remains inappropriate for adult clothing. But I found a beauty.

Well that was a long break

Right! It's been some time since I posted. Lots to catch up on. Firstly I have learned that closework like sewing and knitting is a bit tricky when you're feeling sick with pregnancy. And then you have a baby and there's no time for it at all. :/ But I've got some updates from the last few years and I'll be putting them to paper!
