I am exhausted after Christmas. I would gladly kill some people but first I fed them.
Cooking and decorating.
I so appreciated my house coat made by amazing dressmaker Malgorzata Cielecka.
Unfortunately we've never met. Just done everything through post and mails.
But it is truly great artist who takes up all kind of challenges. I sent to her sewing pattern from 1950s which I won on eBay and I was the lucky one because Mrs Malgorzata agreed to do it.
When it appeared it really works this way... a new door opened for me! New cash flow!
I am regularly checking vintage sewing patterns since then.
There are so many things which I want to make or buy to improve and improve.
When I look at this ikea stripe apron I'm not sure if I shouldn't get rid of it.
F.ex. this unique Ginger Roberts apron in Monkey Business from 1952. Just in the beginning of this movie she's wondering around kitchen in tightly tied apron with frills. I so want it!
I couldn't find any better photo than this.
I planed to make it by myself when I'll finally bring my sewing machine. But then it's always more exciting the get original one. So I activate my internet search again.
There's nothing like looking so glamorous among pots and dishes. At least I'll be pretty in case of sudden building evacuation...
Getting to the point. Which was the red dress from 1940s. From one of my favorite eBay sellers. Zipped sleeves, asymmetrical neckline, only one pocket and pads.
Rayon with one tiny hole but no drama.
Looking nice in the kitchen doesn't guarantee perfect hairdo afterwards.
I already bought a huge cotton petticoat from houseofolivier.co.uk and I have to admit that it was 60GBP and worth it. Together with the corset and full skirt it does make contrast.
