Thea Porter pattern on Ebay


I almost thought about geting this Pattern but I can never get around to even doing my laundry so what the hell am I doing pretending I could ever get around to making a Thea Porter dress? I couldn't find a great link but here is a brief description of her.

Thea Porter - Thea Porter: bohemian, advocate of flower power and free-thinker..... Porter started designing clothing in 1964 after running a shop that sold antique carpets and textiles. Her designs were inspired by Eastern and Middle-Eastern textiles before they became widely popular in the late Sixties. She opened a store in New York in 1968, and one in Paris in the early Seventies. She promoted the ethnic and gypsy styles of clothing popular in the early Seventies.
