Recent finds from the Loft

More stuff I pulled out from my treasure hunting/loft-diving/box sorting!!
Such fun!

How cool are these shorts?!


This is a dress I wore when I was a kid.. it might keep for Iris.. if  I can convince her how cool it is one day!


Dress-style togs (bathers/swimming costume..) on the left. Halter neck.
Beautiful pink synthetic party dress on the right. 




Another dress I wore at about 8 or 9. I am going to copy this pattern as it is super easy. The bodice is a rectangle with a cord threaded through to create the tie up. (halter neck)
Another cool polka dot party dress that languished in my Mum and Dads' dress up box for years! Orange lining. Adult size luckily! 


I wait for the wind to blow out the creases. I don't do ironing. Ever!
I shall wash this (I was just airing these things out) and that should do it!

I was always trying to fit into this mini skirt. I love it so.

The end.
Of part 2!

My fave is the Bather swimming Costume. "LOVE IT"

I am sure Iris will wanna wear that funky little dress. It is adorable.

You must have been the coolest little kid in town - I love all these. I had a dressing up box full of my mum's old clothes, but I think they all got destroyed by me and my sister and friends - we were forever being gypsies etc.

This wee squirrel could crawl into your loft and be in vintage heaven I think. What fabulous treasure!
