A quick post to show off today’s frock.
Made by Ma last summer from an early 40’s pattern (1940 actually- can’t get much earlier than that, hey!). I don’t actually think I have worn it that much- several times last year, and today being the first for this year (first of many outings too)….honestly, I cant think why I haven’t worn it more as me thinks its rather jolly (if I do say so myself!)
I can never decide on photos so brace yourself (ready?) for a lot of painfully similar photos- I’m far too indecisive, sorry…. oh, and trust me for forgetting to get a back shot- just take my word for it that there's a nice back yoke and gathering detail thingy ma-bob!
Dodgy mannequin hands!
|One legged Tups- no but really, where on earth is the other one!?|
The best pose-y wozey picture would have to be the blurred one- Tut, typical!
The poor tatty pattern- love the hats (sigh) and love the long sleeve version too (HINT- hint- HiNt mummy!)
By the way, please do feel free to invite me to a picnic or restaurant- I come with my own table cloth! Hehehe. Ah got to love big gingham check cottons…
