My Op Shop Loot

With all the fun that's been happening with Blogger these past few days (and I mean that loosely) it seems that I have lost a post. Some people have lost more so I guess I truly shouldn't complain. I wont repost it though.

I felt so lost yesterday being unable to create a new post. I was actually organised and had taken photos and everything. So... here's what I wanted to share with you yesterday.

This is one of the bargains I found when I went Op Shopping on Thursday. I was flicking through it and came across some patterns that I thought looked like they might be a good challenge. Considering it only cost $1 I couldn't pass it up.

The pictures on the left are loads of patterns for men's, women's and kids clothing. Some of them look great while others are so 70's/80's looking that I don't know if I would ever consider making them. Not unless there was a fancy dress or something to go to.

It even shows you how to design your own patterns. I don't know if I will ever feel that confident to create my own patterns but at least this should help if I ever do finally attempt it.


I'm crossing my fingers that there are NO more dramas with blogger and that I don't lose any more posts. I have enough drama at home without having dramas online :P

WOW! That was a good buy!! I have one sorta kinda like it, but I've never made up a pattern from it either. :-] As to your lost posts, I had one missing too, but it's back now. So maybe yours will come back too. If not, I'm glad I already read it!! LOL

I was giving the book & the patterns a closer look tonight. I found that the patterns were from the mid 1980's. The models were a big give away too with the BIG hair.

I found my post, it was saved as a draft but some of it was still missing. I'm undecided as to whether I will re-post it or not.
