Just before my mum went on her month long expedition to Sri Lanka (Why? I hope she is OK?! She never writes) she mailed me this enormous stash of vintage patterns, books, magazine clippings etc. Some are knitting patterns, some sewing, childrens, crafts, etc. I will slowly get through looking at all of them but here are a few highlights that initially caught my eye.
The little girls smock is from a book of fairytale theme embroidery patterns which are really charming.
The second picture is an article showing you how to knit a dress, as modelled (of course?) by Francoise Hardy! (Woman 1967)
