vintage shop.

I love to look in vintage shops and usually I have to travel to the city to browes vintage shops or so I thought..... it turns out a vintage shop called Vintage Vision opened a few months back in a small town not too far away from me.
I can't wait to go down and check it out. It also runs sewing class for 'repair, re-style and recycle' which I'd love to have a go at and it hosts vintage fashion shows too.

So how did I find out about this shop.... my mother, she picked up this wonderful post card advertisement. how nice, makes a lovely change from being giving a leaflet.

Thanks for looking x

Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
