For the D photos I have chosen 'dressmaking' as my theme. Inspired by Angela's post about flea market finds, I thought I would share these photos of bits I have treasured of a similar theme. I have quite a collection of old dressmaking patterns and other needlework treasures mostly passed down from my mother, but others purchased from charity shops etc.
A selection of old needlework tools ....
... threads and needles etc.
Pearl and other old buttons in a jar.
Old lace pieces.
New and old knitting needles.
New and old ribbons, briade and lace.
Knitted cupcake pin cushion.
A selection of some of the older dressmaking patterns
Paperwork from an old sewing machine.
Then there are all the lovely scrapbook papers I have treasured for scrapping about these and similar goodies as well as hand made items.

Here is a layout I made several years ago showing a dress my mother made herself. I scanned the drawing from the front of the pattern packet. The dress was red and white gingham.
Thanks for looking.
