I'm also selling another batch of my vintage sewing patterns. I sold quite a lot last time, but I guess I have quite a collection! I'll be putting more on ebay throughout this week, but here is a sample of what I'm selling (on ebay):
Somebody asked me why I was selling them a while ago. In case you've been wondering too, I have three reasons:
- While we have an office in which I have a dedicated sewing area, I don't have heaps of storage room. I figure if I don't use something, I should probably move it out.
- My figure has changed post-baby. I have a softer and more sensitive tummy (do any of you also have a more sensitive mid-section after having a baby? I never anticipated that), and a completely different lifestyle. For me personally, I don't find the occassion to wear more vintage style clothing, and don't find it as comfy for my lifestyle with Little M.
- I'm trying to make a bit of extra pocket money - tight finances around here, so if I want a new pattern or bit of fabric I have to really think about where it comes from. Selling a few patterns has meant I could buy one of the new Papercut Patterns in time to sew it for a very special event - more on that to come!
