A trip back in time

Singing George Formby!I took this photo at Amberley Chalk Pits Museum on Sunday.  They had a 1940s weekend as well as their usual industrial history exhibits. This couple sang some really funny songs.  There were some amazing dancers too but I was so involved in watching them I forgot to take photos. How can I ever hope to be a proper blogger ???

Gus & meHere’s Gus getting in the photo as usual.  He hardly ever looks at the camera though. I wanted to get the buses in the photo as I think they’re lovely – so much more glamourous than a modern bus (but probably much less comfortable).

As it’s still Me Made May, I should mention my outfit.  Top refashioned from a skirt and refashioned linen skirt.   Tweed hacking jacket with velvet collar (bought about 10 years ago in a sale) and boots from Green Shoes.

The linen skirt is one of my favourites.

Worn here a few days ago with the same top:

Me Made May

It looked like this before:

Linen skirt before refashionI have a big pile of clothes to refashion – the skirt I made from my failed Sureau dress has been taken apart & I am including the fabric in a patchwork skirt.

I have lots of me mades I haven’t worn: they just don’t suit me.  I’ve been wearing a few favourites over & over so it’s time for a refashioning session.

I’m hoping to display some refashioned clothes & my new 1970s shoes very soon.

Meanwhile, this is my favourite Me Made May photo so far:

Gus! Hope you like it!
