The patterns span late 1950s through 1980s, with a very heavy focus towards casual wear from the mid1960s to 1970s. Awesome, definitely some timeless classics plus a box of WTF, labelled by the original owner as "Strange, Ugly or Old-Fashioned".
Jumpsuits from every decade!
One of my favourites is this dress:
After viewing the photos, I can see I should have altered for my sloping shoulders but other than that, the fit is good.
I did lengthen by about 2"!!!! I'm 5'3", not good at short skirts.
I'm not quite sure why I spent so much time sewing a covered up dress which, due to my keyhole shy-ness issues, is not work appropriate.
My husband commented, "You could wear it if you worked at Star Fleet!" hahhaha

Only worn it once so far, out for dinner. Comfy!
I lined/underlined the body with a crazy aqua, olive and chartreuse charmeuse print. For the sleeves and hem tape, used bias chartreuse Radiance (silk-cotton blend).
