The more I wear vintage-style clothes the more I love them. I have recently shifted away from "real" vintage to pieces I've sewn myself. For example, I now have a number of blouses made from 1940's patterns (such as the one I'm wearing below). While I truly love vintage pieces, I find it more practical to wear clothing I don't need to worry about as much. I get rather over protective of my real vintage and it does make it less enjoyable to wear on a daily basis. Me-made clothing allows me to wear the styles I want, without worrying about staining or tearing them. It also means I can get exactly the outfit I want, as finding 20s/30s day-wear can be difficult and expensive (especially for poor recent graduates).
I wore my new 1940's style blouse for my weekly knitting night with Britt. We have started knitting in coffee shops once a week, and have plans to try and get other knitters to join us. Britt just finished knitting a toy-mouse to practise her fair-isle skills. I'm working on socks (as my portable project. I have a number of other projects at home) done on two needles. I'm not a fan of double-pointed needles so I knit my socks flat then sew them up. I especially love this construction method because it makes it easy to knit two socks at once.
