Tape another little piece of my heart now baby…

old tapemeasure on old records

Someone lovely gave me this beautiful tapemeasure on the weekend & it’s especially good cause it’s in inches! 

I actually haven’t done any sewing for years but I still love my sewing basket cause it reminds me of when my mum used to make clothes for my sister & me (then about 9 & 6) , mostly dressing gowns/beach jackets (same pattern!) but also my most favorite  party-dress EVER which was dark red velvet, floor-lengthed with a ruffle at the hem and princess sleeves which shot out from my shoulders with Trek-like pride…wow…and then there was the small-floral-print corduroy bolero jacket with matching ruffled skirt, annie-grab-your-gun indeed!
