I sat on my little stool waiting patiently for Mr Dapper Chap
welder man to put in an appearance for our trip over to
our favourite haunt of Todmorden in Yorkshire.
Had to wait that long I debated whether to change my outfit or not
but in the end decided to stick with my charity shop find tweed jacket, jumper and
the vintage barkcloth skirt from Jane Hamilton at Stockport Vintage Village
The bag was made by a friend from a piece of fabric I got from
The Linen Garden www.thelinengarden.co.uk and a piece
I found on the secondhand market. Electric Blue tights and
last years Clarks sandals finished the outfit off.
Well here he is at last outshining us all in his fabulous
charity shop waistcoat that he has had upcycled by adding
tweed and braid picked up from Beyond Measure in Todmorden
Friend Val who loves making things for us made
Philip's bow tie and hankie to match
She made me this fabulous dress from a scrap piece I picked
up for £2 on the secondhand market
and this is the other side of the bag she made
This floral skirt was made by her from a curtain I picked up
in a charity shop. Think you've seen it before.
If the welder keeps upstaging me it will be curtains for
him soon. He's such a dandy
