Making a Traditional Lampshade

Today I did a workshop in the lovely Makery in Bath, learning how to make a traditional scallop-edged lampshade, here are some pics of the process! I used some vintage Liberty Lawn fabric which I got from the Flea market a couple of weeks ago, and some pale mint bobble trim.

Sixties dress

I got this 1969 dress pattern ages ago from a flea market, but I had no idea where to start making it! So I did a two day dress making course at Millie Moon shop in Frome, and they gave me lots of help and here is the result! I now feel confident to tackle another dress by myself now, so hopefully lots more dresses to come!
