Vintage Novelty Prints

This past summer I developed a big obsession with vintage novelty prints. While looking through my closet I realized how many fun prints I have. Here are just a few of my favorites!

Starting from the left is the newest addition to my collection... A little 1950's sundress with a farm print... Then another 50's sundress, that you've seen here before with little red zebras... Next my favorite 1940's playsuit with little chickens all over...Then last but least is a pretty little 40's playsuit from Solanah, that I can't wait to wear in the spring! If you'd like, I can share some more soon!?

And a girl who really knew how to rock those novelty prints, Elizabeth Taylor!

Talk to you lovelies soon!

Those prints are delicious! 've got some vintage "Sooty & Sweep" (old UK childrens TV characters) fabric that I'm waiting to find the right project for. Vintage 50's prints just rock!

I can see why you'd have an obsession with novelty prints ~ these are just darling Quincy. I love the red zebras and the chicken print! Sooo cute!

I am tempted to try and get my hands on some repo fabric and do some sewing...

Oh gosh the horse one is probably my fav but I love how the prints are so brightly colored! I used to have a skirt that had little skiers on it but I sold it about a year ago...kinda wish I didn't. Hrmph.
