Morning all. This weekend I headed to the Giant Flea Market in Malvern. I was actually looking for more of the 1950s dinner service I’ve been collecting for a few years. It never crossed my mind that I would find sewing stuff there, never having seen any before!
But I did find sewing stuff. There was so much fabric on sale, I couldn’t believe it. I managed to control myself for the most part but then I saw a stall which had two boxes full of sewing patterns and I just had to take a look!Most of them were 70’s and 80’s patterns which didn’t appeal, but here is what I did come away with:
Butterick 2545: I think this will be such a great basic top pattern.
Woman's Realm L258. I've never heard of this company before. Not a big fan of the collars on these dresses, but I really love the sleeveless version.
Vogue 2646: This pattern has never even been used, and is still in factory folds.
Simplicity 9906: Just a nice simple shift dress patter, Really like the different necklines.
These patterns only cost me £1 each – bargain!I did also buy some fabric. I came away with about 5-6m in total:
There;s about 2.5-3m of this polkadot cotton and it only cost me £5, which I thought was pretty good.
And there's at least 3m of this fabric too, which again cost me£5.
Sadly, I didn’t see any buttons / zips or other notions, but all in all I’m quite happy with this haul!
How was everyone else’s weekend?
