Another day... Another exhibition opening...

A cutting edge duo are exhibiting at the museum I work in... A dress is required... The pressure was on...

And the wallet was empty.

Queue a very old piece of printed silk crepe given to me by a friend's grandmother...

And some scraps of shot taffeta along with a pressing need to jump on the Suffolk Puff/Yo Yo bandwagon that's bouncing all over the internet...

on meImages are rubbish but hopefully I'm nearly there. Just need to hem it and pick up some cheap-o shoes from some high street somewhere...

Comments on a postcard to the usual address.

Wow! What a fabulous idea. I love the Suffolk Puffs, I'd never seen those before but they look great. It's lovely to have a dress with a little history to it as well. It looks great on you & I hope the opening goes well!

That looks awesome Helen! And do you have a cape-esque affair coming off the one shoulder? Cx x x

It's just one drape coming off from the shoulder about three inches wide so shouldn't be too imposing. I'm almost certain to leave it dangling in the loo as it is!! Glad you approve, though, I was worried it might be too OTT so thanks. Got some blue flat sandals today to go with so I think I'm there!
