After thoroughly embarrassing myself at bowling tonight, some friends and I headed down to Light Night. My favourite part had to be the amazing projection of clockwork that was going on behind me in this picture.
I’m not even going to try and pretend that this post isn’t about me showing off a fair bit. I spent last weekend on a vintage-style dressmaking course and I am incredibly proud of my creation. Sure, it’s not perfect and I am still pretty slow with the sewing machine, but I think it turned out pretty well for my first attempt at most of the techniques used and I can certainly see myself wearing this rather a lot xx
When I first started collecting vintage hats, my Granny told me that hats with veils were incredibly elegant and that I should look out for them on my travels. Of course she was entirely correct and a few years later I am a complete convert to the veil with a modest collection building up. This is one of my more recent additions xx
I spotted this skirt in a vintage store and fell in love with the fabric, only to be disappointed when I found out it was a minuscule wrap skirt. Fortunately, my mother stepped in to save the day and suggested that I turn it into an A-line skirt by sowing the edges of the wrap together. Voilà! One amazing skirt with minimal effort xx
