Figured while Mr. Diva™ enjoys a lovely morning (which turns into an afternoon) of Bowling with his buddies, I’d do a little shopping for everyone…
Enter my fantasy world…
Everyone needs one of these, if only to poke your significant other in the eye:
This is such a cool tool…a Measuregraph–it measures how many yards of fabric are on the bolt without unrolling it:
Now this is one handy apparatus…a Tailor’s Tackmaster. In order to mark 2 pieces of material, it is usual to tack the 2 pieces together by hand and then to cut the thread between them. This is tedious work. Luckily, the Tailor’s Tackmaster permits rapid execution of this work.
Could someone please tell me why the current bid on this Tell City Chair Co. Sewing Station is at $266? Yes, it’s cute, but?
Now here’s an awesome blue sewing caddy filled with notions (including a pair of Vintage Wiss Scissors). I’m sure my buddy, Amy of Love My April, would just love it for her new blue sewing room:
Even though I don’t knit, perhaps my friend, Jen of Olive’s Pearls, might like these. Yes, I know they are not Ebony with Hand Cultured Pearls, but they’ll have to suffice:
Check this out…a Vintage Plaiter. With the help of a hot iron this plaiter allows the user to make box, oak leaf, rose, ruffle, flute, princess and other pleats. Wonder why they just didn’t call it a PLEATER? Guess that would make too much sense.
If you make collared shirts, this is a must–a Dritz June Tailor’s Folding Tailor Board. New, they go for about $30…this one on Ebay is a steal:
Ooooh….look at this wire dress form! It’s not vintage, but it’s SWEET!
Here’s a lovely adjustable wire dress form:
Ok, don’t laugh…but I am so jonesing for a real steam press…only problem is this would require an expensive boiler set-up (much like your local dry cleaners). This would surely send Mr. Diva into a tizzy if this showed up at my door:
Anyone need their own little sweatshop? Heck, it’s only $47,000:
I’ve never seen one of these…a 4 row Ruffler! It’s killing me as it’s located just 10 minutes from me…ugh!
How cute is this?
Oh my goodness…ain’t she a beauty?!
Since I’m on a tatting DIET, it’s all yours:
As always, feel free to buy me any of these wonderful goodies…I’ll even pay shipping. And if you do buy them for yourself
you selfish brat, don’t you dare tell me.
Happy Sewing Sunday!
