Lately I’ve been not sewing as much and perhaps for a reason you are going to think is really bizarre. I needed to slow down in a few areas of life. Even with sewing which I think of as a satisfying hobby I was getting really obsessed, to the point where I even contemplated not going away on holidays so I could get more sewing done. Yep, that was the sign to put the sissors down! Over the holidays I’ve been getting lots of ideas and inspiration from these books I bought or borrowed from the library. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure 🙂
Oh, and in case you are interested, this is a picture of where I went on holiday – Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. Just a 1.5 hour drive from my house paradise exists.
The following is a new book I bought. It is 603 pages of images and hardly any text. It groups the decades of fashion by themes such as ‘Belle Epoque 1900-14’ and ‘Make do and Mend 1939-46’. I am totally loving it! The little bit of text is teaching me about fashion history.
Another book from the library. How awesome is the Brisbane library service! I really love the style in this book but it doesn’t suit my shape. They are cute but totally shapeless. I would look like a huge person in a pretty sack. Inspirational none the less.
Now I’m all filled with inspiration, and am back from holidays so time to start sewing again. Moss skirt draft 2 is what I’m working on at the moment.
What is inspiring you right now?
