1960's Love!

Look what I found at the op-shop today!

I'm particularly taken by the first one - I can imagine wearing View B (in the middle) to work over the summer. I just hope I don't have to go playing in traffic although that is one of the hazards of my job as an engineer - when I first started work I had been sitting at a desk for about 3 weeks and decided it was safe to wear a summer frock to work, only to be given the opportunity to inspect the Tasman Bridge (which involved a short boat ride and climbing one of the columns).
Fortunately there was a one-size fits all pair of overalls available (which were massive on me - but I rolled up the arms and legs and resembled a flying fox!) and we were on our way!

Anyway, I digress...

I also found some great bits of stretch ribbing in plenty of bright colours - perfect for sewing up some more Lil Blue Boo hoodies and dresses!

And if you haven't entered my Blogtoberfest giveaway yet (and don't panic, I'm not drawing it until the 31st) - go here!

Great op shopping Ange, those patterns actually look very current, especially the little shirt-frock!
