  3. Love your patterns, a new shop to favourite!
    My personal favourite is http://www.etsy.com/listing/50435915/vintage-1970-cute-mod-scooter-skirt

    I'd buy it but it's just that bit too small :( BOOO!!

  4. Wow, your shop is great! please add me to your contest. I'm going back to add you to my "heart" list on Etsy

  5. It was really difficult to choose just one favorite from your selection - you have a lot of great patterns. I guess that if I had to choose one, it would be:
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/43729629/vintage-1970s-hippie-boho-dress-or-top-w

    (Though I really like the 60' Mod Twiggy Dress and the Mod Sailor Dress too)

  6. What a fab blog! Right up my alley... my fave eras are late 50's to early 70's so will definitely be visiting you often!

    My fave pattern in your shop is this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/50904756/vintage-1960s-vogue-boho-empire-waist.

  10. Hmm as a libra I find it very hard to choose between favourites. I narrowed it down to 2- this cute top would make a great maternity top (with a little extra length)

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/50781712/vintage-1970s-flared-boho-blouse-w-neck

    and love the coat

  11. Hey! It's really great to find someone who loves 1970s patterns as much as I do. I think they're severely underused, and I really love your taste. I'm definitely going to be looking out for some of the coats and separates in your post down there - beautiful!

    My favourite pattern was this one - http://www.etsy.com/listing/51097358/vintage-1970s-puff-sleeve-jacket, which I just bought (it's exactly my size, and I'm a huge sucker for puffed sleeves).

    I also really like this - http://www.etsy.com/listing/51062412/vintage-1970s-adorable-mod-tennis-dress. Very Enid Blyton :).

  67. Flowers are a symbol of beauty and exude freshness all around. However, fresh flowers have a short shelf life. Drying flowers using the right technique can result in preserving them as close to their original form, flexibility, color and texture. There are many methods that are used to dry flowers.
