Dressmaking Inspiration: 60s Brights

If I could click my fingers and make things magically appear I would definitely be adding these lovely items to my wardrobe. I just love the bright colours used in the 1960s. I wish there was more time in the day so I could make all of these lovely things!

  1. Hello again, dear Sarah! I know I must "sound" like a broken record, but I believe in giving credit where it's due. Your new blog makes a great first impression. When I log on I am instantly struck by it's clean, uncluttered layout and tasteful color scheme. The images in this post are also top notch. You are getting it right, Sarah.

    How well I remember the explosion of bold bright colors and "look at me" fashions for women that arrived just in time for my teenage years. I always urged my girlfriend to wear bright colors and she was eager to comply. I hope you can add some of these coats and dresses to your wardrobe.

    Have a safe and happy week ahead, dear friend Sarah!

  6. These images are just the major jolt of colour that my morning needed - thank you! Not to mention being seriously inspiring for spring, as it rounds the bend here again finally in my wee corner of Canada.
