I have finally hit the thrifting jackpot. 17 patterns, in a vintage 16 (my size AHHHHH!), all mod dresses and all immaculately cared for and complete! 10 cents each.

These are a few of my favorites, I've already bought fabric (white linen) to make the bottom-right dress, with a collar and no sleeves.

Amazing psychadelic fabric from (I kid you not) THC textiles. 50 cents

Far more neon in real life, as evidenced in this.

Fantastic plastic 'orange butt pooping out a rhinestone' button

Headband from the scraps.

I'm sure I'll be posting plenty more as I work through these dresses!

aaahhh, jealousy! 10 cents each! the only thing that is slightly calming me down is that I'm not a vintage 16. hmm. must go to more charity shops.

I certainly plan on snatching up all the 60s patterns I find and share the wealth!

That is probably my absolute favorite one, I've been keeping an eye out for the perfect material.
