What I Like Today

I think I'll keep with the 40's vibe and point you in the direction of Miss Helene's Vintage Sewing Shopee where I found these 2 great vintage patterns.
Why do I like them?
40's? check
Noir? check
Sexy, but covered? check

Vintage Patterns Just Listed

Ok, actually the vintage sewing patterns are in the "coming soon" category over at Sew-Retro Vintage Patterns.
I really love the 2 Vogue Special Design suit patterns. A chic and sexy Noir suit and a more sporty one ala Claire McCardell.

This one is just a great 40's look.
A couple of vintage patterns in larger sizes...and can I pass on my love of the vintage shirtwaist dress? Depending on the fabric is can be worn as a house dress, day dress to run errands in or a easy to wear dinner dress. Always perfect for whatever the occasion.
Stop by and take a look at all the vintage patterns listed at Sew-Retro Vintage Patterns and don't forget to spend a bit of time with the other sellers I share the Pattern and Sewing Mall with.

What I Like Today

I was doing my regular stylefeed and went over to Mom's Patterns.
Jen always has tons of great vintage patterns, but I fell in love with these two.
Pretty 40's vintage dress pattern with puff sleeves, square neckline and flared skirt and this 40's pattern for a button front frock....which I think looks very close to a 30's dress pattern.

Estate Sale Finds

Today I got this:

Cute vintage sewing themed apron, a sewing basket (needs a bit of work) like the one my grandmother had and a cute strawberry table cloth that I've put along the back of my kitchen (yes kitchen) sofa.
Happy buying day!

New Purse!

Got a new purse in the mail today and thought I would post a pic of it since it is constructed of vintage barkcloth.
Stephanie over at Pretty Baby Vintage has opened a new shop called PVB Handmade Goods over on Main Street Mall Online.

P.B.V. Handmade Goods is the sister store of Pretty Baby Vintage. Here, we offer a line of cute, original clothing and accessories that are reconstructed/deconstructed or reworked from other vintage pieces. We also make vintage reproduction apparel and accessories, specializing in the 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s. We sew each creation ourselves on vintage Singer sewing machines and use a combination of vintage (or vintage inspired) patterns, fabrics and notions. We do use modern thread and zippers for strength and durability in our creations, though.

I love my new purse.
Nice and roomy, very well made, 2 HUGE interior pockets and a lovely pastel tropical print vintage barkcloth body.
What more could you want.

You can have one too.
Just stop buy PBV Handmade Goods and buy one.
New Blog

Yep, another blog from me The Vintage Goddess.
Part shameless self promotion for Sew Retro Vintage Patterns and
part guide to all those great vintage sewing sites out there on the web.

There will be lots of eyecandy.
I promise.
This vintage pattern is one of those "why has this not sold" favorites of mine. Pretty 30's frock, lovely pattern.
