as someone who occasionally puts vintage clothes on etsy, i have piles and heaps of clothes. i've gotten pretty terrible at updating that thing, even though i REALLY REALLY want to. but instead, i've taken to going through it and trying on clothes i bought for spare change and seeing if they fit me now, months later. and a lot of them do. i had bought this shirt a few months ago, and i decided to wash a few handfuls of vintage, and i randomly tried this one on. and now it's mine forever. because it's awesome. it goes quite well with the skirt i refuse to take off.
since both my machines are broken, i've reverted back to sewing by hand. it's nice, and comforting, and i can take things with me, but i still miss the quickness in which my machine can operate. things that take me an hour, would have only taken me a minute on my sewing machine. and it also means, that i can't finish the resizing of other vintage clothes that i wanted to. hard knock life, obviously.
