A Mish-Mash of Delightful Things

Hello lovely readers, today for you I have a bit of this and a bit of that, all hopefully of some interest to you.
Firstly, a quick reminder that entries for the Lingerie Sewing Competition sponsored by Ohhh Lulu and myself will need to be submitted to Craftsy by Friday, February 8th. (If you're desperate for more sewing time before the deadline, let me know and we might consider moving the deadline back a bit).

A few of you have already added your submissions and let me just say, they are all so beautiful and voting is going to be close!

In other news, the clever and talented writers behind two really amazing vintage blogs, Brittany of Va-Voom Vintage and Bunny of Bunny's Victory have released the first issue of their new magazine, "Hey Doll!" This free digital magazine is an absolute treasure trove of vintage goodies, outfits, tutorials, tips and everything else that you could want!

You can read it online using a computer or any mobile device. I pulled it up on my iPad and read it over my morning coffee. I can't recommend this magazine enough!

Also, the talented Maddie of (one of my favorite blogs) just posted some lovely pictures of her most recent lingerie sewing designs and they're really a must-see.

And to end today's post here are some lovely sketches of lingerie designs from a French 1948 lingerie sewing pattern catalog in my collection. They have really inspired me this weekend.

I hope that your Monday is as lovely and peaceful as mine has been!


  1. Eeek! Thanks for the shout out. I was reading the post, not expecting anything, when there was my name and my blog! I'm glad you liked the photos. I'm already onto my next bra and dress

  2. I really want to participate, but am so stressed with other stuff right now, I'm not sure I'll make it. a few more days or a week would be great! Thank you Anna

  3. What a treasure these are! I especially love the soft pastels in the middle one. You must have a collection to die for! Thanks for sharing with us.

  4. Same here also, I don't think I'm going to make the deadline. Sadly I've been nursing my poor old cat of 15 years and had to take him to the Vet today, I find out the verdict tomorrow, I know he's an old boy but fingers crossed Mr Oxley Biggs comes home tomorrow!
