…Well ok it’s not a frock but a skirt and blouse instead. It’s misleading, I know- my excuse (?) well, I don’t actually have one… it is Friday though- I didn’t lie about that!
Anyhoo ‘ere’s wot I wore today’ and all that …
Dead stock late 40’s skirt- perfect colour and weight for this time of year, I thought. Light and fresh colours, yet its warm enough for a slightly cooler day, being made from a lighter weight wool fabric.
Navy Crepe Blouse, made by Ma again from a 1946 pattern.
Brooch: 30’s/40’s leather posy- which I didn’t wear in the end as it broke before I went out- boo hoo.
Smugly looking towards my 50’s sideboard-oops!
|dodgy photo- but shows my poorly brooch and waves!|
As for the hair- well the set is on its last legs, so I rolled it up at the back and kept the wave at the front and side- quite different for me as I like height. Really, it was me being lazy and not wanting to put in any rollers to give it a boost!
I was originally going to save this new (sort of, I have had it for a while!) /old skirt until I had knitted the perfect cardigan to go with it- I have great plans for this skirt you see. Think along the lines of a 30’s spring/summer outfit, suitable for a cruise along
Lake Windermere with a Captain Hastings (hehe- he wears the best cloths EVER!) or a Leslie Howard sort of person (terribly stylish!). Of course this cruise would have to be in one of those lovely steamboats (you know, the ones that are all varnished wood and brass- nice!). I don’t want any old boat!.

Happy Weekend Happenings All
