Home Sewn exhibition

I've seen and heard a lot about the Home Sewn exhibition at Britomart in Auckland, but these photos are giving me serious feelings. I don't really like Auckland a lot but these pictures from Black Betty's Facebook page are giving me the awful vintage envy feeling you get when you see someone with a better wardrobe than you. All of these clothes are vintage and handmade in New Zealand, from loads of different collections. I reckon I have a few dresses I could've contributed to this.

 
Woah, look at that print. It reminds me of this dress that my friend Ella made and sold me. 

If you are an Aucklander here is some more info on the exhibition, which runs until the 26th. See the main photo on that page? That's a 1950s pattern for the 'Walkaway' dress, one of which I have! Also the lovely lady who took these photos sells gorgeous vintage on her Trademe shop, which I urge you to check out as she has great new stock up every week.
