sunday sewing

Sunday-sewing b Sunday. Making time to do those little sewing jobs that vintage always requires. With these, I'll be doing a bit of darning, finishing off a hem and mending a couple of seams. Easy stuff, and, once I've actually picked it up and decided to do it, kind of relaxing. And definitely satisfying! Once these are sewn, there's just three hand washings to do and then I'll have three dresses to wear again. Excellent! Sunday-sewing a

I'm envious of you that you are so handy with the sewing machine :) I have a skirt that desperately needs to be taken in, and It's going to cost me a small fortune to get that done. Love the colors of these dresses and can't wait to see them in their full glory on the blog!! x

Nikki : oh, there's no sewing machine action happening, this is all hand sewing! I'd love to learn how to sew but I never actually get around to it..! x

Marianne, this is exactly what I was planning to do this weekend - alas, it hasn't happened.......although, I have been doing other fun things such as buying a new mid-century wall unit....installing it and fiddling about with making it look pretty :)

I think I shall have to get on the sewing machine next weekend now as the day has run away from me....blah, Oh well!
I hope you got all your dresses altered/repaired and I shall look forward to seeing them blogged about sometime soon..

Love
Emma (Dear Thirty)

It always takes me forever to get around to doing these little jobs and then I wished I'd done them sooner because it's so quick.

i 've found it so gratifying. i mended my floral, very full skirted, dress to wear on a diner date with my husband this weekend. and it felt so special. so worth the effort :-)

You're SO right! Mending is very relaxing and satisfying :) Adds a few "new" things to my wardrobe everytime!
