..and not just from me!
On a casual glance out of the window, a small green something caught my eye today. It seems that life is stirring again out there in the damp and drizzle of the British winter.
There is hope a-stirring that Spring will soon be sprung, and that I'll be able to leave the house without battling the elements every time we run out of milk. At the same time, it has made me horribly aware that I have blogged about precisely one item from my Autumn sewing plans, despite it being almost the end of winter. Blast.
So, since it's the one I'd been planning longest, here is one from the list: the 1957 draped blouse.

Back in November I attended the Alternative Women's Institute annual charity tea party with my sister Kally (who blogs over at Millinery and Musings), a wonderful local event awash with hot beverages and more cakes than a hundred-odd vintage attired ladies could even eat. I wore it with my newly perfected pencil skirt pattern made up in a basic black cotton twill, and the snood I crocheted. My sister's outfit is also handmade, the skirt and hat made by herself, and the sweater was knitted by our mum.
I promise I will try to neglect my blog less in the near future!
