50's pockets




I have added some 50's inspired pockets to a pretty simple skirt pattern (Vogue 7937). This is actually the first time I have ever sewn ric-rac, but the pockets make me smile every time I see them, so you may see ric-rac popping up everywhere in the future.

  8. Oh Jen, I am so jealous that you get to shop at Apple Annie in person...I can only mail order, and because of postage costs, limit myself to just a few special pieces
