And so my twin obsessions with monochrome and the Simplicity 2451 continue. My fourth iteration. Am I gonna apologise for this skirt? No way!
I haven’t even shown you the lining yet…
Oh yes, my friends. That there is called a Double Polka Dot Whammy. Both fabrics were bought from The Man Outside Sainsburys, though I might report him to Waltham Forest council for feeding severe addiction. It just ain’t right! Or is it? At £3 a metre for the stretch cotton sateen, purchase of this felt oh-so-right.
I’m going back for another three metres. Come on! This stuff would make a great Elisalex dress. Am I right, or am I right? You’re so right, Karen. I know!
UPDATE! A few readers have requested details regarding location of The Man Outside Sainsburys. Don’t forget to check my downloadable map of Walthamstow market here. TMOS is labelled number one. (Of course he is!)
