As you know - I love 1960s and 1970s vintage. The colours and the designs are so fun and bright and bold. I'm not one for modern minimalism.
Recently I found that a local vintage store Unearthed sells a lot of beautiful vintage fabrics and patterns and I've bought a few metres of fabric from them. The fabric they sell is a little more pricey than what I am usually prepared to pay for vintage fabric. However, the store is beautifully curated and I love looking at all the vintage goodies. Plus I like to shop locally, because if you buy everything from the internet because its cheaper, pretty soon there won't be anywhere to buy anything!
Recently I bought some lovely purple and blue paisley fabric from Unearthed and decided I wanted to make a dress from it. I didn't want to risk any mistakes, so I stuck with a tried and true pattern for the dress.
