Hello dearest readers :). I would like to quickly apologise for my very very long absence (a month... ahh). I had a little break from blogging for a few reasons, primarily that my laptop is broken (a blogger without a laptop?!), and secondly, because its that time of year again... exam time! So do bear with me over the next 2 months - I'll try and get a post out once a week, but I've got to knuckle down and get these grades so I can get into uni in September! I hope you'll understand!
Now onto the post!
After watching the film, I just HAD to make myself a Mod dress that wouldn't look too out of place in a scooter rally to Brighton on a bank holiday afternoon. I found the pattern on eBay - yep, its a genuine vintage pattern! I felt so cruel cutting out the shapes, but it had to be done. (Does anyone else feel like you should leave vintage patterns intact?). With a few adjustments, I had the perfect dress for me ♥. The collar was surprisingly simple to do!
Now, Mods wouldn't be Mods without the other essential bit of gear - the fishtail parka. I found this one in H&M a few weeks ago for £30. It's not actually a fishtail parka... in fact, I'm not sure if it really is a parka at all, but I love it nonetheless and I can tell me and the coat are going to be bestfriends - especially as it's my only piece of 'practical' clothing.
Now all I need is a scooter...
Hope you like the photos! I went to a new location today to take them. It was rather chilly. And the cows in the next field kept staring at me...
