You booty!

 Visited a South African car boot sale today and wasn't disappointed!  Found this gold mine of vintage patterns, and love practically all of them.  Can't wait to make some of these and they're also great inspiration for future off.kilter projects.  Need to check out just how small the patterns come up - as the ladies back then were so petite!

These are some of my favourites.  I love the maxi dresses and coats.  The pattern in the top left has a great sleeve / shoulder detail which might crop up in a future off.kilter garment and those stripy flares will definitely be added to my wardrobe - maybe in a chunky navy corduroy.  Look at that fabulous wedding dress!!
