I'm Fiona and I'm a vintage fabric addict

There you go I've said it! I had no idea I was until I sorted all my fabric out last weekend. I LOVE vintage fabric, I'm pretty definate about what I like, it's not everything, but it seems I have far more than I thought I did. I mostly buy fabric that I can eventually make something out of, I'm not into having fabric for the sake of it. The fabric above I have a lovely little summer top I've made - but not completed whoops! I also have enough to make something else!

This one is my absolute favourite, I don't know why, and I don't know what I'm going to make from it but I have loads and although you probably can't see, it's a slubby silk, it's divine!

You can see a theme here can't you? Colour and exotic places he he! I'd like to make a summer dress from this, I think it will be so lovely and cool!

Another half made blouse, naughty huh? I love this fabric too, really must get on with the sewing!

Stupidly I don't know how to rotate this photo in blogger, sorry! This is going to make a fabulous blouse, I love this colour but know it doesn't work for a lot of people, however when you have red hair it works so well!

And last but not least!


I only took pics of the printed fabrics, shamefully that was 80 pics, yes 80! Didn't even take pics of the plain fabrics, so I now know I have to get on with sewing this year, big time! If only to clear some space in my house, eeek!

I shall try to remember to photograph my projects that I work on for you to have a look at! Whether successful or not!

Oh and thanks to Super Kawaii Mama for the inspiration for this blog post, she posted on Twitter this morning saying 'Does anyone have vintage fabric scraps they want to sell? 30's, 40's 50's era' I then realised I had a problem as even parting with scraps is hard! Check out her very fabulous blog, she always looks so glam!

I could honestly kill for the whole bunch!
Lucky lady!

Are you gonna make something out of them?

Hi hon, yes I am, I promise, I didn't have a lot of time last year trying to build up Notorious Kitsch, but I'm going to give myself some more me time this year, that means some sewing time too, so hopefully new stuff to wear!

We 'might' be doing Hemsby so might see you there.
