Domestic Goddesses Baking Party

On Saturday I attended Angela's birthday party - a domestic goddess baking day. The main focus for our baking was Christmasy. I decided to make up some Mini Fruit Mince Pies for my family, Kerry was baking some Gingerbread and Angela was building her Gingerbread House. It was a lovely day and I hope Angela has a fabulous birthday, even if she has to share it with Christmas.

But, onto the photos. I wore my new 50s dress which I made out of Indian cotton, using one of my vintage patterns. I really like how it turned out, and it is really nice and cool to wear, but it was a bit annoying to make up, mainly because the fabric has a rather open weave. I am hoping to get some more photos up of some of my other vintage dresses, I think I just get a bit more motivated to get photos.


  1. Oh, I have such shoe lust - those are sooo perfect!!!!
    The dress looks ab fab and domestic goddessy too! Fluffy, fluffy petticoats are obviously the key to your success!

  2. Ooh yes. I love the petticoats. I only have two though. I am thinking I really do need to get some more.

  3. I adore the 1950s. The fuller the skirt the better. The funny thing is that you expect to feel a pressure towards your legs when dancing with a girl in a huge skirt and layers of petticoats, but you don't. Very different from hooped skirts.
