THE op shop gods didn’t just deliver a watermelon-coloured summer frock this week (see yesterday's post). I also scored a 1940s paper pattern that comes close to resembling the vintage dress from this Design Sponge guest blog post. I’d kept the link stored in Google Reader until just last week and had let go of the notion I’d be able to hunt down a pattern for it. Can you believe it? In a box of patterns for 1980s drop waist frocks and jackets designed to take Dynasty-esque shoulder pads was this little beauty. It was 20c and comes with a pencilled in recommendation from the original seamstress. Can you see that? The blouse on the right has been circled and “Good Blouse” written in blue fabric chalk. Now, if I could just find a source for that fabric. Oh, op shop gods, I am unworthy.
