|So what did the Cranky Queen do with her new found love for vintage textiles???|
Well, with a lot of help from my gal pal, Duchess Melanie, I made my very first garment! Guess what fabric I used? An old bark cloth tablecloth from an Estate Sale that I managed. I even left the original fringe from the tablecloth for the added vintage touch!
The finished product. I have to give myself a royal courtesy!
The pattern is from Indygo Junction .

This great swing coat was made from bark cloth curtain panels by Duchess Melanie just for me! It too is a Indygo Junction pattern.
So next time you are out junkin', don't pass up that old fabric...
they just don't make it like they use to!
A royal thank you is sent out to my wonderful gal pal, Duchess Melanie, pictured on the left, for the time she has taken to guide me down the path of sewing. She is a great teacher & I cherish each moment.
