Wednesday Wonderfuls #17

Hello everyone and a happy Wednesday to you all! I hope you've all been having a great week so far, enjoying the sunshine (if you've been lucky enough to have it) :)

I'm going to take this time to remind you of my giveaway, you still have a week to enter!

"Keep Calm and Carry On" book and Sugar Mice

"Miss Hope's Chocolate Box" recipe book

Just go to my previous post to enter, all the details are there :)

And now for the main event, it's Wednesday Wonderfuls time! There's been some great stuff on the old blogosphere this week, you lovely people always give me something interesting read :) Here are my favourite reads of this week, enjoy!

  • Casey has posted a tutorial about how to create a beautiful 30s scalloped collar. She used this technique on her version of the Pendrell Blouse sew along, and I loved it then, so I'm so happy that I can now try it out!
  • I recently discovered this lovely blog, "An Aesthetic Feast". Some beautiful pictures to have a browse of, enjoy! 
  • Gertie wrote a great post on net corselets, often used in couture gown for hidden structuring. As a massive fan of the Dior New Look style, I found this fascinating, and Gertie hinted that there may be a sew-along in the works! Happy days :)
  • After all the vintage revamps that I've been doing recently I loved this post by Tuppence Ha'penny, a beautiful reworking of an 80s dress into something stunning. Plus, this dress is for sale, so if you fall in love try and get your paws on it!
  • I'm so excited that A Stitch in Time Volume 2 is now available for pre-order! The lovely Ruby has now announced that with every pre-order you get a preview pattern sent to you as a pdf file to keep you going until your book arrives. Plus you get all kinds of goodies when it does! I can't wait :)
  • I saw Water For Elephants yesterday with my mum and I loved it, it's visually stunning, the costumes are to die for! So obviously I loved this post by Tea With the Vintage Baroness all about Reese Witherspoon's day wear in the film. I want every single one of these :)

Have a wonderful rest of the week my friends, full of adventures and vintage goodness :)

I know, isn't it gorgeous? I really want to start it, but that would just mean another incomplete knitting project, not what at need at the moment! That doesn't stop me planning what colours I could use though :)
