The other event that I attended recently was another Vintage Fair. This time, a much smaller one held out at Sandgate. In the end, it was a little disappointing. There was quite a large turn out and a good number of stores, however they had crammed everyone into such a small space that the stalls were unable to bring much stuff and there was very little room for patrons to move around the space in. I bought a vintage tea set that a local artist had decorated. I have seen her stuff before on etsy and been tempted to buy, but this way, I don't have to pay postage. It was lovely to spend a few hours out and about with a couple of my friends before sitting down to lunch.
And finally, I got a photo of my 1960s red dress and hat set that I made back in July. I have been wearing it to work in the meantime and wanted to make sure that I got a good photo of it all. I'm really happy with the way this dress came out (it is two of my patterns - a 1950s bodice and a 1960s skirt pattern smushed together). And best of all, it is incredibly comfortable to wear to work, so I will certainly be making more.
