No matter how many times I look through old issues of The Australian Women’s Weekly, one thing that never fails to
make me drool amaze me are the ‘ready made’ or ‘cut out ready to sew’ dresses you could order by mail. Sure, this was during the 1960s and sure… it was a common every day thing to do and my grandmother would probably wonder why I’m making such a fuss about it, but… I’m jealous!
I mean… just at look at the dresses you could order!
I’m always a little tempted to mail in an order myself (especially for the last two appliqué pocket dresses) but I suspect who ever is at the address in Sydney today would wonder what I’m on about!
If you could order any of these dresses, which would you choose?
