I'm going to start out by letting you all know how grey and horrible its been here - lucky for me though I'm on holiday for a wee while and as a result got to stay indoors with my sewing machine and Madeline.
This morning though I got a very fun package in the mail filled with vintage goodies :) One of the most exciting things I got was this beautiful turquoise pussy bow shirt - I absolutely adore it!
It worked so well with the little pencil skirt I made earlier this week that I simply had to take a photo and share it with all of you. There were so many amazing things in the package that you'll all just have to wait until I wear them - including a very cool 60's coat that will have to make its debut in Autumn (How sad..)
I have also, as I mentioned, been sewing all day. In my arrogant state I thought making a fitted top would be easy without a pattern, lo and behold its not that simple!! However I am making good progress (in fact, its nearly nearly finished!!) and here is a little sneak peak...
I have been documenting its progress (although I kept forgetting towards the end) and will fill you in in due course.
On a happy note, here are some flowers from David's dads garden - they smell yummy and look quite quaint in the old milk bottle.
