I spent a delightful few hours on Sunday listening to The Best of the Troggs while lopping off vast swathes of fabric, adjusting side seams and raising a hemline.
A little bit of this…
along with a touch of this…

resulted in a dress that I think even Twiggy herself would have been proud of.

Talk about suffering for my art!
With Season Six of Mad Men well underway I decided to channel my inner Joan Holloway and have a go at a beehive.
Considering it was my first attempt I was rather pleased with it – any tips on making it more UK weather-proof?
All in all, I was rather pleased with how it turned out. What do you think?
