Last night I started the task of cleaning out my Vintage/Antique books and sewing patterns. I made it through 1 shelf.

I am offering quite a few books and ORIGINAL patterns from the 1870s-1880s for sale. I am asking below what they sell for on ebay. I have them listed in my ETSY SHOP.

I am willing to give a 10% discount if you would like to skip etsy and just use paypal. Items are shipped within 48 hrs of receipt of payment.

Feel free to ask any questions!


roll of latex fabric and rare knitting yarn

Dear all,

I am a fashion designer and am cleaning out my studio at the moment. The items I sell are leftovers of things I bought to try out but didn't use. I will be adding a lot more things over next couple of days.

1. Now I am offering a roll of latex from Radical Rubber along with a glue kit for latex.

The rubber fabric is 1m in width and then 7m length on the roll. I cut off a piece of maximum 30cm. The roll came from UK and cost me 90,- euro including shipping.
I am trying to find someone in Holland who would be interested to take it off my hands. If you know of anyone please let me know. I would like to sell it for 60,- euro.

You can see the offer here:

2. On eBay I am selling a lot of knitting yarn. Vintage, handmade, and good quality new stuff. A bit of everything since I had quit a big collection.
I have a lot of rare sorts of wool/cotton yarn, handmade, vintage and new. I'm offering them as job lots. Have a look!


*I will be adding more fabrics on eBay, because that's easier to post. I could also sell the latex through eBay if anyone wants, but the shipping cost would be big so you're probably better off buying the latex straight from Radical Rubber in UK.

Kind regards,

Conical Busks

I now have 12" (330mm) conical busks in stock at  www.sewcurvy.com.

They are sturdy yet flexible, made from stainless steel in Germany.  They have a bit more spring than the thicker stainless steel straight busks.

I am offering them at the  special introductory price of £10.00 for this week only, then they will go up to the regular price of £12.00

Edit:  My online shop is priced in GBP sterling and the payment gateway is Paypal who have their own exchange rate which changes daily.  If you are paying in Euro's then the price is about €11-13, and if in USD then the price is around $16-20.  Those are my best estimates today.

Powder Blue

Curvy decoupaged mannequin for sale (Durham, UK)

Right. What is one of the key items that most corsetmakers covet? An appropriately shaped mannequin!

Click image for larger version.

I love my decoupaged mannequin. She's the ideal shape for displaying modern corsetry (21" waist, full hips and bust) and she's covered in beautiful little bits of history, clippings from old newspaper articles featuring seemingly old fashioned names such as "Mrs Mallory Bell", and vintage advertisements for the latest fashions. She was the first decoupaged mannequin of this style that Lucy at CorsetLacedMannequins made and I can't say enough good things about Lucy's customer service or my beautiful mannequin.

But, I am downsizing... Going through my belongings (both personal and professional) in as ruthless a fashion as I can manage. I have two other corsetry-appropriate mannequins (a matching pair) and one modern lingerie mannequin. Last November I was gifted a huge industrial sewing machine and my drafting table is a decent size too. There's barely room to floss a corset, nevermind swing a cat, and we are planning on moving into an even smaller house sometime over the next year...

So. She's up for grabs. I have the original box and have listed her on ebay, please take a look :-)
