Long Lost Find,Wombles Would Be Proud Of.

Standard

In a recent bag of vintage swag from a very good friend I found this little treasure. A dress had been cut out and even tacked together with just the facings left to sew on. From the pattern shape and price it was clearly from the 70s and had been in a paper bag for a few decades…..well I just had to remedy that and bring it to life,didn’t I?

Then I remembered a recent charity shop find and it seemed a match made in heaven. Wombles bed sheet from 1977,colour and decade perfectly in tune.
