So I spent last Saturday sewing. And normally when I sew I wear leggings and a t-shirt, but its Frocktober so I can't do that... so I thought this vintage nightgown and robe would be just as comfy - and it was!

I went out for cocktails with my husband, so I wasn't going to go in my nightgown! I thought this was much more appropriate!

This dress. This dress. THIS DRESS!!!! Vintage late 1950s dress that has hardly ever been worn and is in immaculate condition. Sigh! I paid a fair bit for it but I think its worth every penny. I just adore it! Oh, and I realised that I had been doing my hair the same way for 21 days so tried to change it up a bit!

DAY TWENTY FOUR:
This outfit was inspired by a conversation I had on Facebook with a few people in regards to blue and green. We were discussing the old saying "blue and green must never be seen without a colour in between" and I was saying it was rubbish, and instead should be "blue and green is fit for a queen". This is my blue and green outfit!

Well, believe it or not, I am almost there with Frocktober, just 6 days to go! I've really enjoyed this and I hope its been interesting to you all too. I haven't done a normal blog post this week because I've been working my day job like a mad woman. Hopefully I've have something to report on the sewing front next week, cause I've been madly working my way through some customer commissions!
Have a great weekend! I'll be in a skirt making frenzy!!
