Vintage Fabric – Garage Sale Finds

One of the things I most love about Sydney (apart from the glorious weather and beaches of course!) is the weekend garage sales. I love to plan a route the night before, get up early, grab a coffee and go.  I find information about local garage sales on http://www.egaragesales.com.au/. Gum Tree also has lots of listings.

A few weeks ago I went to a fabulous garage sale in Chatswood. The lady who’s house it was had moved to a retirement home so her niece and nephew were helping her sell her 50 year collection of fabrics. I have never seem so many wonderful vintage retro fabrics at a garage sale before. Needless to say I was in heaven.

Here are my favourites, soon to be made into summer maxi dresses using vintage patterns bought on Etsy.

Thanks for reading,

Bridget
