My sewing machine is ready to be picked up from the shop today. I have not missed it since it’s a finicky thing and has given me more fits than any sewing machine I’ve ever owned but at least it was really expensive.
I have a cheap little work horse that does what needs doing.
This is my Scarlet O’Hara coat, or my Gone With the Wind Coat fashioned from a bolt of upholstery fabric scored at the Goodwill. It also made some very groovy curtains.
My one and only sewing machine EVER has been a little old Singer. That's my baby.
My friend Kathleen and I were in the Goodwill today and she bought some nice upholstery fabric but I do not think she's planning on making a coat out of them. After I show her yours though, she may.
I also have an old Singer, sadly not working at the moment. It's a beautiful machine though.
Goodwill is awesome!
THAT is one sweet coat. The collar. And a great photo of it too.
So whimsical, so birdie-sweet with a touch of sophistication! better than Anthropologie could ever offer. agree~beautifully photographed. love it. thanks for sharing. allene
The collar is the icing on the cake!
Thanks for stopping in Ms Allene…
Anthropolgie will have it on offer next year for a brazillion dollars.
HOpe you're feeling better.
love those colors – that is one of your gifts – your sensibility about colors. I love the photo on the top of your blog – central coast?
Thank you and yes, Central Coast.
