Mad for Plaid...More Print and Pattern

This plaid dress came from a junk shop. I found it in less than wearable condition. There were many issues. A lot of the seams had failed and had to be sewn up. I also re-sized it and took the hemline up.

I don't mind the issues when I am lucky enough to find vintage. A little mending/darning just gives it character. I added a little character with this fix of the hole in the skirt.

Rosie's off to market with a Stone Free Farm tote, made with vintage drapery fabric. I've lost track of the number of bags we've done, but it is somewhere in the upper thirties.
