The frocks in the shops just aren't cutting it.
(the ones I can afford anyway!)
I've found me some inspiration...
Australian Home Journal, September 1964.
(btw, this style/cut/whatever of frock is called a "skimmer")
Australian Home Journal, February 1965.
Australian Home Journal, October 1964.
I'm talking the little number on the right here, NOT the even littler number on the left! Although a long time ago (in another universe!), I unbelievably...
wore midriff tops!
(what's with those shorts?)
(This pic was taken outside our first real home, ie not a share house, in East Brunswick, Melbourne - if you're interested...)
I've found me some gorgeous retro fabric
Now all I've got to do is learn to sew!
And in about ten years when I've got the hang of that, I'll learn to crochet, and make me some matching handbags!
Seriously that is sooooo not going to happen so if you'd like the little Myart books, send me a note and they're yours...I'm more interested in those breeze blocks anyway!
