New clothes

I went shopping with my friend Lucy the other day

and she talked me into buying this blouse

which is not my usual style.

But I do really like it.

Although, having seen it on the models I think I may need to tie my bow differently.


I’ve┬ájust had a huge clear out of my wardrobe and have only kept things that make me feel good. I’ve got surprisingly little left.

But, that’s alright as I’ve found a solution Ginny (ex theatre costume designer) is teaching me pattern cutting and dressmaking! And, boy! Do I have a lot to learn.

P.S. Joe’s been stalking birds this time.

    It is always fun to get new things to wear. I can never find things that are comfortable, in my size or the right color, lol. So, I need to teach myself pattern making too. I am going to take my favorite old clothing and make patterns from them.
