Capsule wardrobe ? Update

 

The Capsule wardrobe project is temporarily on hold!  No apologies, I have been working on other things whilst enjoying the unprecedented heat wave! Apart from my garden and vegetable plot, I have been busy taking photographs of new stock for Coolclobber and Floslingerie. We have now had weeks and weeks of hot sunshine, and I have had to eat my words about shorts! It has been too hot to wear much else!

So, here are some of my latest stock items for Coolclobber ⬆ Tap on any photo to enlarge it.

Vintage tapestries in sewing craft and supplies section at Coolclobber

Coolclobber has a growing section devoted to sewing, crafts and supplies, including many vintage sundries and fabrics that will lend themselves to a variety of vintage sewing projects and upcycle projects.

I have always enjoyed re-using vintage fabrics and giving them a new life. So, along with selling clothes and accessories , I am always on the look-out for interesting textiles, vintage buttons and trims , patterns and sundries.  Today I added a number of completed tapestries  that I came across recently.  There are already a few in the shop , so now there is a great selection to choose from. Some would lend themselves to being incorporated into luxurious cushion/pillow covers, some would look great framed and there are endless possibilities for creative sewing projects, including their use in carpet bags or totes.
