Outfit in a day and more

Apologies for not posting at all this week but I was just so busy, I never got around to actually writing about what I was doing. I finished this little dress earlier this week. It's turquoise cotton with yellow bow detail and yellow fabric covered buttons. I was inspired by my wedding colours. My 1st wedding anniversary is just around the corner and I was looking through my wedding pictures again. The bridesmaids were wearing turquoise dresses with a bow detail on the bust and all our flowers were in yellow (so was the venue but that was just a coincidence...I didn't colour coordinate that...it just all happened to be those colours) Anyway enough blah, here's the dress.



And the dress that inspired me:

On Friday my husband and I went to London to spend a day in the V&A Museum. I went the week before with Julie to see the Grace Kelly exhibition, which I very much recommend to all Vintage lovers who are near enough London to go and see it. The £6 fee is well worth it. Anyway, Dave and I ended up spending a good 2-3 hours (which was only enough time to cover half of the ground floor of the museum, we will go back again to do the other half and other floors) in the V&A including a little picnic in the courtyard and moved then on the National History Museum for more geeky entertainment of the day.
The day before I managed to sew a complete outfit, which I of course had to wear the next day on our geeky Museum excursion. I finally sewed another one of the vintage patterns I posted about a while ago. It was this one:

I made the top and pencil skirt. I might make the jacket as well. How very Jackie Kennedy...
Please ignore the mess in the pictures. My husband has just come back from a weeks training and dumped all his it in his work room. I just need a a quick picture to post, no time for tidying up.
Enjoy the sunny weather. I can't believe it's finally here!!!! Yay!!!!

  6. I deleted the previous comment (the one before the last actually) because I left it logged on to the wrong account. Just trying to avoid confusion.
