We went to Down House, home of Charles Darwin this weekend. If you are at all interested in science or nature I really recommend it. I think children would love it too: there’s lots of interactive stuff to explain the theories and the cakes in the tearoom are yummy….
The flowers were just outside his greenhouse / lab.
I altered it to this length but I still didn’t wear it; so now it’s a top and I’ve worn it a lot. I also raised the neckline a bit. I’ve lost a tiny amount of weight and that made the dress gape a bit at the neck.
It was a bit cold yesterday and I had intended to wear this:
This is my 1930s dress which I’ve now overdyed with Dylon’s French Lavender. I think it will get a lot more wear now. Somehow, the white background put me off and it’s such a shame not to wear something you’ve spent hours slaving over. The pink shoes are from Hobbs’ sale a few years ago.
I haven’t been sewing much for myself recently because my little sewing business has started to get busier nad I just haven’t had time. Plenty of plans in my head though.
