This is it. The last few pages of my catalogue of early 1950s sewing patterns and fabrics for the Japanese market. No I guess I’m going to have to start making some of them up!
There is actually a little story to these photographs that I haven’t told you. I went out one afternoon, bought lots of delicious things at the Asia Gallery, got given the patterns, was having an absolutely fabulous day.
Then I got home.
And realised I didn’t have my key, and the house was completely locked up. Blast!
Mr D would be home from work in an hour or so, and it was the middle of summer, so light and warm, so I decided to wait it out.
Felicity came out of her cat door and meeped at me while she tried to work out why I wasn’t coming inside. And I tried to find something to occupy my time. I realised I had my camera (I always have my camera) and the catalogue to look at. So all of these photographs were taken outside on my front steps on a late summer afternoon while I waited to get inside. Irritating at the time, but a charming memory in retrospect!
