We had our first stall at the Chandler Markets here in Brisbane on Sunday, we didn't do so well, we sold a few things but it wasn't really the right kind of market for the stuff we're selling (flying swallows in vintage paper, blackboards, handbags, cushions etc).
Here is a photo of our stall - I thought it looked so pretty. Megan takes care of the wood craft and I sort out the sewing stuff. (Check that amazing pink curtain fabric Megan sourced from her local op shop which I managed to squeeze out some bags and a cushion!)
So we're giving it another go this weekend at the Ruffled Bazaar Twilight Christmas Market.
Now, back to sewing. Last time I wrote an update I'd just received all of those amazing vintage patterns, I am so close to finishing a top that was supposed to be a dress - Butterick 4259 below
There was all sorts of problems with the muslin I attempted for this, first of all, the jersey type fabric I started with was see through and old and the sizing was all sorts of wacky, (that jewel neckline is crazy tight)! So it became a top in a different fabic, which is way too big for me, all I have to do is take it in and insert some button holes into the back and hem it, but with all of the market prep going on it's just sitting on my dressmaker dummy looking sad, as you can see.
I'm looking forward to some time off over christmas so I can get stuck back into some self-indulgent sewing for myself, it's really heating up now and I definitely need a pretty new dress!
