Loving the vintage vibe!

Here's where I'll share my obsession with vintage fabric! It's taking over my house!

I'll sharing with you my favorite fabrics, my 'adventures" in dressmaking using vintage patterns, some home furnishing ideas and no doubt I'll be telling you about any exciting finds! Love to hear about your vintage adventures too!

My first Shop was AudreysCat ( online shop May 2010) , but my new logo / name - WittyDawn , arrived Jan 2014.

I hope you'll have time to browse my shops too !

A Day at the Races

We had a great day out at the Cheltenham Festival back in March on Gold Cup Day( so I'm just a tinsy bit late in posting this! ). For once I came back in profit and fortified by pints of Guinness and the occasional nip of Whisky and Ginger!

I kinda went for an 'Extra from a Miss Marple' look with a vintage 40's/50s hat which certainly was a bit different from the rather orange tan hued 'Ladies' in summer frocks/facinators/high heeled sandels ( my Dears this is CHELTENHAM IN MARCH not ladies day at Ascot.....). So top marks for effort but goosebumped, streaky tan legs is not a good look on anyone. Also a lot of Ladies in tweedy jackets/skirts but with pink/lime/mauve varients, either with a matching trilby style hat or Russion'y fur head band thingy and Brasher boots. Actually a much better look but so many people sporting it that it is obviously the equivalent of velour leisurewear for the toffs/wannabes....
