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 !

Hubbie's Accordian!

We are a house of many musical instruments - none of which I can play, but OH and kids can. At last count we had 3 guitars, 2 violins, keyboard, cornet and last but not least this gorgeous accordian. It was given to my Hubbie by a family friend and it dates from the 50s. It came with some books dated 1955 which he is learning from - he's doing quite well actually!

Off for tea and cake ....!

Went to a lovely vintage tea party as a birthday celebration for Sheila, a marvellous lady who runs a little Vintage shop called SheUnique in Cirencester. She a very elegant lady and had asked we 'dress to impress' . I made myself this skirt and top ( adapted from vintage patterns) and teamed it with my favorite original 50s hat/gloves/bag/beads. It was a lovely afternoon with a ridiculously large number of muffins and fabulous outfits!
