spending the week in France for a quick energetic reload as well as an attempt to evade ‘Queensday’, a Dutch national holiday on the 30th April of which the pro is: neverending fleemarkets all over the country, and the con: most people use it as a poor excuse to get drunk in the morning and stay that way for the remainder of the day. normally I’m no stranger if it comes to pointless drinking, but in this case it gets kind of pathetic. plus, I don’t really care for monarchy. :)
good news is, in France they use the 1st of May for fleemarkets too! and on one of them I found these amazing old French fashion magazines, including some of the original sewing patterns that came with them back in the fifties and sixties. I was really happy when I found them, because I was actually looking for magazines like this for a while, but never did. I’m planning on making the dress as shown on the image, and I’m very curious how it will look. I highly doubt if the tiny waist comes with the pattern. if results are achieved I shall post consequently.
