I recently picked up these beautiful haberdashery items at a car boot sale for £2. I’m always on the lookout for bits and bobs to use when making dresses. These are some of the oldest I’ve seen dating from the Edwardian period to mid century. Most of it is too old to use and the beauty is in the vintage packaging.
My plan is to frame the ones I like best with a fabric background to hang in my room. I’d already planned to frame some of my older vintage sewing patterns so I think these would go perfectly with the frame. I may also add a few vintage fashion illustrations to finish the look. Watch this space!
