The Hazelnut Praline
(Oh, come on. When were hazelnuts in chocolate ever a good idea?)
I’ve completely messed up my white cotton from Paris. The dress is too small, my attempts at underlining stink (please don’t underline with a poly cotton mix, just don’t) and everything is a big fat fail.
I’m sorry, Paris fabric, I let you down. Move on!
The Coffee Creme
(If you don’t like them, can I have yours?)
I think this is the cotton I’m going to use on my version of the Gertie Bombshell Dress. £3 a metre from Walthamstow market. We’ll see. Now, I just need to order some steel boning and various other accroutements.
Steel boning. It sounds like something a lady trapeze artist would use. Exciting!
