If you live somewhere other than Australia, an 'Op Shop' is a Thrift Shop or a second hand shop run for charity. I look through them for second hand books and I can't resist rummaging through the patterns if there are any. In a recent windfall I found these.
Isn't this wonderful? There's no copyright date anywhere on this pattern that I can find but it must be 80's don't you think? I love the illustration and the fact that the top half of the girls' heads appear to be missing.
No one is wearing big coats, right? Wrong. Look at this from Stella McCartney Fall 2013. Images from style.com.
The copyright date is 1977. I love the illustration, very Stephanie Powers from Hart to Hart Image from google images.
I was nosing around Style.com and came across this. It's probably separates but it gives the same impression as a jumpsuit. By Stella Mc from her Spring 2014 RTW.
I like the relaxed collar but I've never been a fan of the poke-you-at-the-cinema-from-the-next-seat granny sleeves. No one is, right? Wrong - once again from Stella McCartney (see previous link) complete with the big sleeves but updated with the snaky print.
Get a load of this pink offering from Rochas in Pre-Fall Trends Scroll through them all. It's illuminating!
I hope you liked this report. It all started with a baggy pattern bought for a laugh but now I am thinking of actually using it! I've got an old pink check blanket somewhere..
