Thanks for all the op-shop love for my last post. It was a bonza haul, wasn't it?
Today I snagged these patterns (20c each!), mostly for the illustrations. The Vogue pattern is particularly stylish - I love the fold over collar and the models' languid air.
I remember wearing a tunic like this when I first started playing netball: 'bottle green' with a white tassel cord around the middle (did they have a special name? I can't remember). I'm not that old either but it seems such a long time ago.
These dresses are very much of mother's era, the tiny waist and full skirt. When we were little, we had a great dress-up box which included some of mum's 50s and 60s dresses. She still has them, though they are a little worse for wear, small children having dragged them around the house. I cringe a little to thing what beauties they were before we played in them. But mum was never fussed.
Isn't the pantsuit just swinging?
