Flea Market Treasures
This past weekend I was on my way to the grocery store and I happened to stumble upon a Flea Market. Of course, I couldn't resist! OMG there were so many wonderful things. It's a really good thing that I didn't have a lot of cash with me or I my have come home with a carload of treasures. However, I simply couldn't resist some of the gorgeous vintage linens that were there. I picked a few of my favorites and left before I was tempted to splurge any further. My mind was just racing with ideas as to what I could do with them but I knew for sure I wanted to use them in my sewing.
This morning I sat down at my machine and started creating. I wanted to use soft colors so I went with gray and a really gorgeous pink. I also used some of the vintage lace I had been hoarding to add just the right touch and then I added the linen flea market find as a sweet little apron on the front of the dress. I am very happy with how it turned out. Abby fell in love with it too. She even insisted on wearing her pearls with it. I have to admit they are the perfect touch. Amazing at 4 years old she has such a great fashion sense.
