I've been enjoying a calm and peaceful week and Dan and Gemma have arrived safely in Malawi to undertake their 5 week medical volunteer placement, so its just me and the animals. So, you may, ask do I have a finished project to show? No!!!! There is a tale to tell about invisible zipper foots and uncooperative hems but I'm saving that for next week. Suffice it to say I have been enjoying some sewing and knitting and hopefully will be back on my not unsubstantial plans, as revealed last week, soon.
I did brave the terrible rain yesterday to go to a Vintage Fair in Penrith and picked up a few vintage clothes .... Perhaps I could pretend to have whipped these up myself!
A jacket with more than a touch of Chanel (not very old though as it is H & M)
A houndstooth check dress (looks a bit baggy here but its cosy and quite stylish.
And finally a genuine 50s wool coat .... which I think was a bargain for £40. I love the style though have to admit that I'm not sure it suits me. At only 5 ft 4 in I can't decide if the style drowns me ... still its so cosy and warm and I'm sure I could get my money back if I try to sell it.
Do you wear any vintage clothes , what is your favourite era - I definitely favour 40s and 50s - not so keen on the 60s on but I think that may be because I remember it from the first time round! How old does that make me sound!
