My Vintage Pattern collection on the move to Vietnam

Tomorrow I’ll be off to Vietnam on a wee break with Joe.  I have been told by that the Vietnamese are masters at Tailoring and copying clothing designs.  As I am an avid collector of vintage dress patterns and fabrics I have decided to take some patterns, fabrics, belt buckles and buttons from my collection and get them made up in Vietnam.
