Yes, two hours.
I'm really happy with the way this outfit turned out. Especially considering it was a last minute sew. I've decided I'm going to enter the best dressed competition at the fair, so you all need to cross your fingers for me!!!
I am already planning making this outfit again, and there will be things I will do differently (and I'll make sure I do a much more detailed post when I do). But they will be very very minor alterations that you won't notice from the outside.
I'm going to make up another version in this fabric, to go with this hat!
This is obviously not me - I think its the Etsy seller I purchased the hat from.
This version will have a lilac satin bolero made with some lovely thick satin that I have in my stash. I'm going to a ladies day at a race meeting in a couple of weeks and I thought having an enormous bunch of flowers on my head would be perfect for a spring outfit!!!
And due to the vintage fair (and a stallion parade at a thoroughbred stud that I'm attending with my father-in-law) there will be no sewing this weekend. But never fear! I'm going to have to fill you in on the goings-on at the Rose Seidler House Fifties Fair, so you WILL be hearing from me!
But if you can't wait until then, go on over to my Facebook Page because I'm sure to post something on there!
Till next week!
