I just bought these patterns from my local charity shop. Their dates range from 1975 to 1987, and some come from my favourite department store, Liberty. Why did I buy them? I have no idea. Do I have a sewing machine? No. Do I want to be able to sew? No (I took up my curtains, and it nearly sent me over the edge.) Do I want to take my fashion inspiration from 1970s and 1980s Vogue patterns? Not a chance.
Sometimes, like love, you just don't have an explanation.
