Oooops I haven't posted anything for two weeks... but I've been quite busy. Amy came to Leeds to stay last weekend, and this weekend my sister came up to visit me. She was nice enough to take these photos of me outside my favourite cinema in Leeds, Cottage Road Cinema (where I saw Interstellar last week, which was just crazy).
As I've mentioned a few times, there are a lot of good charity shops in my local area, and I got this heavy cotton (upholstery?) fabric from one of them. It measured about 4.5m x 2.5m, was in pristine condition and cost £15, which is obviously such a bargain. I made this A-line dress based on the late 60's dresses Peggy and others wear in Season 6 of Mad Men, and I love the little collar. Sorry about the inexcusable crease in the front but the iron in my apartment is useless.
This coat has been a lifesaver since I moved to Leeds and it keeps me so warm and looking sassy on my long treks to town. It also feels a bit like a dressing gown which is perfect in the freezing lecture halls.
