I have not done any sewing for myself in ages. I needed a new dress and this polka-dot fabric was on sale at JoAnn's for cheap so I whipped up a dress and this belt made from scraps of vintage fabrics from the forties and fifties. I picked up the buckle at the Brimfield Fair last fall.
Someone gave me these scraps that had been carefully cut into squares and saved in individual envelopes perhaps for a quilt that never got made? They are very retro and remind me of necktie fabric. Very fun to work with.
