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 !

'New' Vintage fabric for my curtains

I've been looking for some vintage fabric for my front living room for come time ( crazy given the amount of fabric I already have!) but I wanted something more subtle that the full on vivid retro textiles I use elsewhere. So I was thrilled to find and win on ebay this super, vitually as new, immaculately clean Bevis fabric. We have some redecorating to finish first in this room but I LOVE this fabric.

New Retro Applique Projects!

I've been mulling over designs for 'luxury' retro cushions for a while, featuring my gorgeous vintage fabric and trims with applique using my own drawings. Thought I might share with you the first two that I've started work on. These feature mainlt 70s cottons with floral and scandi themes.

If you fancy suggesting some other motifs I'd be thrilled to hear you ideas!
