I wish you could have seen me yesterday, whipping up angel costumes at a furious pace! My sewing machine has never rattled along quite so quickly, there's nothing like a deadline to stop me from farting about...
Anyway, I made them, all 10 of the little darlings, complete with vintage lace trim round the hems and sleeves. Naturally I delivered them to school this morning without remembering to take any photos, so you'll just have to take my word for it, and make do with this vision of 70s chic instead.
This is another of my £2.50 Baklash buys, a 1970s dream from C&A. Does any colour combination speak of the early 1970s quite so well as brown, orange and yellow?
Because it's the first of the month (or it was when I took the photos), it's time for another Hat Attack over at Judith's. I'm going; why not join us?
Still learning to love that profile... Getting there, I'm getting there.
The dress is that annoying not-quite-maxi-enough length on me, but I was pleased to discover a big turn-up so I'll let the hem down, when I remember...
As it is, I rather liked wearing the dress as a long waistcoat/tunic kinda thing over trousers...
...a bit like this, only more towelling, less woolly rug.

I'm no great believer in karma, but after I had sweated over my sewing yesterday, look what arrived in the post today.
I won Patti's giveaway, a beautiful silver branch necklace by Blue Nile.
It's gorgeous, thank you, Patti - now we're necklace twins! Whenever I wear it, I will think of you.
And speaking of the ever-hospitable and oh-so-stylish Patti, she is having her usual get-together for Visible Monday, so I'm taking my bold 70s print over there. It's well nigh impossible to be invisible wearing this dress!
Hope your weekends were fabulous, like your good selves!
