A Blast from the Past!

It's no secret around Crafty Mamas that I may have a bit of a thing for books. In particular, reference books. 
A few years ago I found this book and even stocked it in the Shop for a while..it always sold out so quick.
Full of fabulous easy clothes to make, with no patterns. 

As if this book was not awesome enough..I recently discovered there was a follow up to it! It took me a while but I  manged to track down an ex-library copy. Check this out..

Yep... the " Son of Hassle Free Sewing" !!!
Written in 1972.
I know! Awesome, right?? Even more pattern-free hippy clothes to make . And you'll never guess...
there's a " Lisa's Patchwork A-Line Skirt"!! 
This book was made for me!

I have the first one but the cover is like the second one....?? Odd. I need the second one though! What a funny name..!

Vic the fist one was re released with new cover , hence it is different.
