Sayonara sewing!!

Every day starts with a list of resolutions:
today I will sort through my mega-library of sewing patterns
today I will choose one to start sewing
today I will go through my textile/clothing for repurposing stash and match textile to pattern
today I will cut something out

And you know what?
Each day I get sidetracked with stock shopping, listings, sitting in the sun reading Philippa Gregory, whatever!

Yesterday I found this amazing vintage 70s kimono by Mitsukiku.  Totally wonderful textile with a design of fans and flowers.  I was researching it on the internet when I found a really groovy fashion photo from 1973 from the Daily Mirror showing some Mitsukiku kimonos.  Turns out the Mirror has a fab photo archive you might like to browse - link to kimono photo and the archive below
