Love Vintage

Yesterday I attended the Love Vintage Fair, this first to be held in Brisbane.  There was a wonderful array of stalls selling clothing, shoes, jewellery, and vintage reproduction items.  Whilst I was not supposed to take photos, I managed to sneak a couple at stalls where they didn’t seem to mind.

All the pretty blue dresses – love!!
I loved the embroidery on this pale pink dress

A bit blurry, but I really liked the print on this dress
 I tried on a couple of dresses but they were made for people much taller than my 5’2″ and would have required an awful lot of adjustment to fit well.  I think I should just stick with my patterns custom made by me for me.
I bought a few bits and pieces at this stall including a lace collar, and some metres of lace.
 
There was a wonderful stall with early magazines and kntting patterns.  After much deliberation and editing I narrowed my purchases to these:
Here are a few of my favourite patterns I want to add to my queue, if only I could knit faster.  I seem to only finish about two things a year – does anyone else have this problem?

Not a bad haul and a great day out!
