1950s theme party – part 3

Hi folks, this is just a quick update, it’s almost 11pm in the UK and I’m ready to hit the sack.

So here’s where I’m at…..


I’ve made the petticoat – hence the puffiness under the skirt! Here’s how it went

From this….


To this…..!


I’m so pleased with the petticoat except it’s really itchy so I’m going to have to make a lining.

Next job is to refashion this (An old hoodie of Harrison’s) into a T Shirt with spotty bias trim…..


Only 20 hours to go before I go the ball! 50s party! There’s nothing like a tight deadline to get you motivated!
