Spring is nearly here! So I thought it would be a good time to post a selection of pretty dresses from Retro and Vintage online shop Mod Cloth. There are loads more on their website which is regularly updated with new stock and they have really cute blog too!
These bags are made from hand woven plaid and floral cotton. The lining is durable thick cotton and the bottom of the bag and the handles are made from a tan coloured soft suedette. The bag measures approximately 40x 35cm and each handle is just under 50cm long (to fit comfortably over your shoulder)
Perfect for shopping, work or school. I use my bag all the time and it is hard-wearing as well as feeling soft and looking pretty!
Merchant & Mills sell the most wonderful selection of sewing essentials; safety pins, buckles, scissors, needles, fabrics… They also sell patterns for a wide selection of dresses and tops which are supplied on thick card and sent out in the post in storage tubes. The patterns are simple and elegant (like the ‘Trapeze Dress’ above) and are not too challenging; even for beginners. The majority of the materials are sourced from the UK including dressmaking shears from Sheffield and oilskin from Yorkshire. Their Studio is based in Hay-on-Wye where you can sign up to do various sewing courses. Keep up to date with all their products and news on their blog here.
