new frocks cut from vintage fabrics

Hunting down cool secondhand fabrics for your sewing projects is a task that requires an extreme amount of patience, not to mention op-shop savvy. Which is why, for the lazy folks among us, Sydney studio Ruby Raisin is such a gem. In addition to their main line, the brand offers a retro collection filled with dresses cut from vintage fabrics.

Scrolling through them all is a bit like taking a tour of your grandma’s raddest linens: there’s the demure wallpaper-type prints, the bold flowery patterns that could have spent their past life as curtains, and if you’re lucky enough, perhaps one or two pastel Ken Done numbers. If you like what you see, head on over to the Ruby Raisin online store.
