Frock declared success

Fifties Fair was so much fun! The dress worked a treat and no one (except perhaps Kitty) was catty about it beingĀ  was a 1970s pattern. And look, my cardie was the right shade of yellow!

But we were blown away by the bona fide 50s folks… the best-dressed competition was amazing. Everyone looked smashing.

A final pic from Sydney – a wallpaper idea for all those old patterns you can’t use because they’re missing a critical piece…

Fifties Fair progress

Nearly there… after hours of handstitching the placket and hem… just needs buttons and buttonholes.

The spots look so crisp and fresh (and I’m not a very crisp and fresh person, so it does feel like a costume). I just can’t get over my luck finding the classic yellow and grey combo.

Should be finished tonight!
