A Sewing Machine and an Umbrella is proud to present… much better photos that should have been in that last post.
This was my first attempt at Victory rolls, and I have to say they are much more difficult than I had hoped. I am not really a ‘hair’ person. I usually spend my time putting together an outfit and then stick my hair on top of my head and swipe on some mascara. I really love this hair style though, and I hope to one day be competent at it. I spent a bunch of time looking at internet tutorials, the best of which, in my opinion is by Fleur over at Diary of a Vintage Girl. Does anyone do this on a regular basis? Any tips?
I used some brown and white fleece to make the pocket bags and do the binding on the inside. I think warm fuzzy pockets are a very important feature in a dress that is going to be worn in December in Vancouver. Not that is gets that cold here, more so depressing. I think that is the best way to describe winter in Vancouver two degrees with a chance of depressing. Fuzzy pockets help.
So that’s Christmas dresses. Now onto spring!
