The dress and hat that I made for Goodwood Revival was often remarked on as I walked around the event…which I can recommend to anyone who likes vintage fashions. These outfits are flattering to anyone of any age – everyone looked fabulous. Those not dressed up looked out of place. Luckily the weather was good, it wouldn’t be such fun in the rain. I could have spent a fortune at the various stalls selling clothes, hats and accessories, and i thoroughly blended in at the stall selling Union Jack emblazoned homeware. But instead contented myself with my camera – so many photo opportunities.

A couple of days ago I was very pleased to find a duvet with the original Star Trek characters on it. I will indeed be running up an outfit that features Captain Kirk’s smirk on a skirt. When someone said to me that I should think about selling my dresses I know that this one could have ‘trekkies’ queuing up. And I’m sure there will be some off cuts of fabric remaining to run up a hat or a bag as accessories.
Maybe I should consider another stream to Dratz Hats – check it out here if you’ve not already visited: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DratzHats
Recently I picked up a vibrant design featuring animals on an orange/red background. This duvet has a different pattern on the reverse which will be fun to use as well. Is there a name for a duvet collector? Or collective name for a group of duvets (a bed of duvets)? I’d love to know.
