But first here's what I wore:
(The only place in my room with enough lighting and room for outfit photos is on my bed. Just thought I should add that in case any of you are wondering why I am standing on my bed haha)
1920's-style Dress: Made using this tutorial (same fabric as my pink dress. I found a few meters in a clearance bin so I scooped it up!) I used seam binding instead of facings.
Sweater: I'm going to say vintage. Technically I stole it from my dad, but it's old enough to call vintage.
Stockings: I just chopped the legs of a pair of tights.
Earrings and Hair Bow: Made by me
Want to know what you can buy with $15? Turns out a heck of a lot!! I bought a large bundle of what appeared to be embroidery and knitting booklets. Only when I got home and opened it did I realize how large it really was! Most of the booklets are from the 1940s, but there are a few later ones as well. The majority of the pile is embroidery designs and crochet booklets, but there is also knitting and some general needlework booklets. I'm thinking a few of these might end up in a giveaway when I hit 300 followers ;)
|The pile of brown papers in the other picture is actually a pile of embroidery designs! Here is one just to show you how adorable they are!|
I also bought this rather sad looking sieve. It was $5 which seemed a bit high, but I think it is from the 1940's and still in working condition. I plan on putting this to good use in my kitchen. This was a practical purchase since I needed a sieve.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I have to spend most of it studying but hopefully I can find time for some baking as well.
