So I've been invited to a Halloween party on saturday, and with NO IDEA what to dress up as, I popped in to poundland and bought some black and white face paint, thinking that if it works I might be a skeleton or some kind of a day of the dead inspired sugarskull...person? Basically, I have a skeleton top and a pair of mittens with bones prints and being a witch seemed too obvious. Although I do love being a witch!
Now, I need to decide on a flower crown, how do I choose?
Blue roses, homemade
White plowers with studs, topshop
Small red roses, homemade
or these white and yellow roses from Primark?


I only had one picture to show off the bridesmaids dresses that I made earlier this year, so I thought I would share some more of them since it was my first big job as a freelance seamstress here in the U.K. Sure, I altered quite a few dresses when I was working in the bridal shop, but this was all my work, from pattern making, to the fittings, to the actual day!
The girls getting ready in the morning.
Outside the church waiting.
After the ceremony.
And last in the field where the party was held!

market findings

Every two or three months Lou Lou's Bristol vintage fair comes around and take over the passenger shed next to temple meads trainstation. I have made it three times so far and last time I ended up coming home with some antique crochet, buttons and two lovely autumnal fabrics as seen above.
There is a mix of crafts like paintings and illustration as well as vintage clothes.
A sneaky photo of a lovely back pack...
There are also some stalls with things for the home.
And when you get tierd and need a some sugar for energy, there is always tea and cake!
Vanilla apple and blackberry cupcake, mmm.
The salon for hair and make up.
I just thought this was cool!
One day I hope to have enough dresses to have my own table and rail, I'm working on it because as much as I would love my things to make it in to a shop, I think I want to try markets and fairs first.
