13th March – my ‘Bettie Page’ dress – at least that’s how I think of it. I made this from a 50s/60s pattern a few years ago with some cheap red tartan fabric and added a charity shop belt around the waist. I love it, but it’s rather tight so I have to be in the right mood to wear it.
14th March – 50s style polka dot ‘wiggle dress’. I bought this as a treat to myself in autumn 2013, I don’t often buy ‘new’ new clothes; this is another one that was made from a 50s pattern.
15th March – Psych 60s mini dress. I got this from a vintage fair towards the end of 2012. It was the first dress I bought at the beginning of a new era in my life, so it has a certain sentimentality for me. It was also my son’s birthday party today, so bright colours seemed appropriate!
Pretty much half way through the project now!
