All My Own Work

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

The Veiled Lady

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

Florals to Go

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
