Mmmmmm chocolate vintage vogue
I took some time out at lunch to visit my favourite haberdashers in Manchester Abakhan the wonderfully helpful shop assistant spent so much time with me picking out this fabulous taffeta at a discount price. I have been inspired by this vintage vogue dress. I also chose the dusky pink rose corsage (looks more pinky in the photograph than it actually is - an effect of the flash). Ladies I have to say that Abakhan have a great line of corsages at around £2.00 each - a fraction of the price you'll pay in the fashion chains.
I love the idea that this simple pile of material and notions will be transformed into a fabulous garment.
