Some Interesting Things I Found on the Web...

I have a number of blogs I check out on a regular basis. Mostly sewing, upcycling, and vintage/retro related. Here are just a few:

Blog For Better Sewing: A sewing and vintage related site which was started by a gal who found a Vogue sewing book called Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing. It promises you will be a better sewing if you make all of the garments outlined in the book. This gal, Girtie, has searched for the vintage patterns and is in the process of sewing up each garment.

What I Found: This has vintage/reto related fashion stuff and is somewhat interesting provided you like that sort of thing. I love the old fashions, especially the ones from the 30's and 40's, so I really enjoy what she has to offer.

Craftzine: There are frequent posts here, mostly craft related but with enough good ideas that it's worth checking out.

Wardrobe Refashion: A site that focuses on reworking garments, whether from your own closet, a thrift store or some source other than new. Great ideas for reusing things you may have but no longer fit or are out of style.

Sew I Thought: This gal has a real knack for seeing potential in garments which look completely outdated and otherwise uninspiring.

There are a number of other sites I check regularly, including Threadbanger, but these are good for a start.

Let me know what you think.
