Loving the vintage vibe!

Here's where I'll share my obsession with vintage fabric! It's taking over my house!

I'll sharing with you my favorite fabrics, my 'adventures" in dressmaking using vintage patterns, some home furnishing ideas and no doubt I'll be telling you about any exciting finds! Love to hear about your vintage adventures too!

My first Shop was AudreysCat ( online shop May 2010) , but my new logo / name - WittyDawn , arrived Jan 2014.

I hope you'll have time to browse my shops too !

My latest projects !

Well I'm in the middle of a couple of sewing projects , some for me and some for sale.

I've cut out this dress but can't seem to find the time to sew it together! It's one of Vogue's reissued vintage patterns and the fabric is a real vintage one, sort of a crepe. Really lovely! I'm looking for some maroon suiting fabric for the coat but I'll alter it to give it a swing back and make it much shorter - to go with a lovely vintage hat I bought recently.

I also bought this fabric recently - there's enough for 4 cushions - 2 to keep and 2 t0 to sell!
