Friday Night Cocktail event
Me wearing the gown I designed for a competition, one of the prizes being that my design would be made for me by a couturier.

Me wearing an original cotton early 1930s dress.
I had the compact before I bought the dress, but didn't realise that they matched until I was ferreting amongst my accessories on the day this was taken. Some luck that!
Us with some friends and acquaintances after an Art Deco themed variety concert in aid of the Canturbury Earthquake disaster.
I'm looking forward to the winter event, hope I get all my planned outfits ready in good time. Not the usual sewing on buttons and tucking away threads the morning of the event. My planned projects are an appliquéd and embroidered piano shawl, a skirt to match the jumper below and the jumper mentioned in my first post amongst many other things. So watch this space!
