Retro

It took me a while to think of a suitable R. Until I went shopping for sewing patterns.

A little Christmas party dress perhaps?

Or this one, for a luncheon party?


Oh, Boss, about that pay rise...... That little black one would work wouldn't it?

That's my favourite. The blue one with the long sash. I could sashay about in that someplace, couldn't I? With the caplet of course. I live in Wellington after all.

Yep, I'll make me one of those, just as soon as I get the 18 inch waist sorted.

We could be soulmates! I don't know if you remember how I got all excited about the coincidences between our sons, when I first discovered your blog.

Now I'm looking your Butterick pattern (the last one) with a jolt of recognition and a stab of nostalgia: my Mum had exactly the same one in her sewing basket and I'll bet it's still there!

The blue sash one is my favourite too. I even used to own a pair of genuine winklepicker shoes and I wore them out years ago. I loooove the pencil skirts, the boat necks, and the sheer elegance of it all!

I am the Wellington incarnation of Antipo. Obviously. She left something behind, and I'm inhabiting it. I shall pop over for a vino dear antipo, and bring you some tamarillos.
