I found this pattern at 'Auckland's Biggest Garage Sale'. It was in fact the only thing I found in a warehouse sized garage sale, how disappointing! Originally I was going to use the pattern as wrapping paper but when I unearthed it from under piles of paper on my desk and had a good look at the glamorous ladies on the front, my mind sprouted with possibilities. I am quite taken with the dress/ robe in the middle. If I made it a good 4 inches longer and added a few inches on either side (no my waist is not 25 inches), this could be the great go-go dress of my dreams. My only worries are the zip and the fact that I have never sew any article of clothing for myself before. Why should that stop me though?
