I made a bag! I made it for my good pal Jackie because it is her birthday and she is now a quarter of a century old! WOW. Kool haus. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It is somewhat based on the Forty Minute Tote tutorial by Purl Bee, although I mixed it up a bit with the fabric and the straps. I used a vintage floral curtain type material for the lining and a thrifted soft-ish denim cotton for the outside and the straps. I am hooked, I want to make more! I also want to draft a pattern for a clutch of some sort. We'll see. I am going to New York this weekend to visit my other good pal Cat, and then coming back to a month long project for my application to the National Theatre School and working full time while also designing the costumes for a play coming up in March, so there may not be so much time for extra-curriculars.
Happy New Year all! I saw the Diana Vreeland doc last night and it was really great. I'm not huge into documentaries all the time but this one really did a great job capturing the essence of its subject, which can't have been easy because Diana Vreeland was such a huge personality and true visionary. I'm glad they were able to do her justice. I have a new idol and highly recommend checking this out!
We had our first annual office party to celebrate PFS Vintage! We got dressed up in our finest and partied like it was 1965. Even our intern Lupin who is normally a pretty big Grinch got in on the fun! Enjoy!
Thanks to Jackie, Cha-nese, Germain and of course Lupin for modelling! Happy Holidays, y'all!
