So, with Spring in full swing (nice alliteration there, huh?) and the end of the school year exactly one week away, I’ve been cleaning up my sewing area in preparation to move back home. As usual, I have way too much stuff for a 20-something, some of which I really don’t use or need, so I’ve decided to have a little Spring Cleaning sale!
So, here’s how this works: Leave a comment about what item(s) you want. Once you’ve done that, I’ll e-mail you with your total and a shipping estimate (you do have to leave an e-mail address to comment on any posts, but don’t worry, these are never shared!). Unfortunately, at this time, I’m only able to take cash or checks. Sorry for any inconvenience that may cause!
Alright, onto the goodies!
Quilted hoods: $45 each, or $80 for both
Grey wool quilted hood with red silk turn back – 100% hand-sewn hood made out of grey wool, lined with green polished cotton, quilted in a square design with cotton batting, and red silk taffeta on turnback, ties, and curtain binding. Click here to view a shot of the exterior.
Whitewaist – Young ladies sheer bodice made of white cotton lawn with a half-high lining made out of pima cotton. Bodice closes in the front with hooks and eyes and is accented around the neckline and cuffs with white cotton lace with a woven-in black ribbon.

Grey Wool– this wool has an unusual but lovely square design woven into it. 1.5 yards and 62″ wide. $7 for the piece (I also have a remnant of a little under a yard available, too, if you are interested) SOLD Grey and blue plaid wool: this wool would make a variety of lovely things, from a neat circle skirt to plaid gentleman’s pants, to a basic shawl for mid-19th century reenacting. Piece measures ~ 2 yards X 60″ wide and is $7 for the piece. SOLD Black wool jersey – I have up to 5 yards available of this fabric, which is around 54″ wide. It is 100% wool, and has a slight stretch. It would be great for a modern dress. $5 per yard SOLD
