|Where it all began...|
This year is flying past so quickly, I can't believe how little I've blogged! And I don't even have a particularly good excuse for not doing so either. What HAVE I been doing? I must have just been existing really...
Well, I want to put that straight RIGHT NOW! So I'm going to share with you all something from my childhood...
|They like their embroidered tops, don't they?|
|They don't make dresses like that anymore... cute embroidery though!|
Oh! The pictures! To me, they are the very essence of the 70s... a mixture of really good design, and terrible fashion sense! Or was it really good fashion sense?
Anyway, she claimed them back from me after I'd left home, so I hadn't seen them for about 20 years, until now! I think I saw someone's pictures of them on Flickr or on a blog which piqued my interest again, but I hadn't forgotten them. Then when I found a set of a few on eBay, from a UK seller, I just had to bid for them! And they arrived yesterday! Hurrah!
|Don't look so fed-up love... the embroidery is pretty, but the puffy sleeves... well, they're something else! :D|
|Do you think her hair is meant to look like those ice-cream embroideries? Aw bless...|
To start us off then, I'm going to share with you this collection of embroidery designs. Aren't they cute? These pictures and the embroidery designs are all from part 10. Just click on the picture below to get the full-size image.
