I just received the nicest email, that really did make me smile. An online pal has just come top in the Spoonflower Weekly Design Challenge for October 23 (see the design, plus the other winners here), which is brilliant (and well deserved!) news.
What a fantastic design. You really can’t beat Spoonflower for this kind of thing, it’s such an excellent platform for people to get their ideas out there and this is a winner of a costume for Halloween. You can see all of Ceri’s fabric here.
Whenever I see this style of print, it reminds me of Clothkits kits from the olden days, oh how I loved my Clothkits dresses. I was always very envious of my cousin, who had the Clothkits doll and a mini version of many of her dresses in doll size. We didn’t have the doll. It may have scarred me for life 😉
I just popped over to the new Clothkits site, to see what’s on there at the moment and look! You can buy the original doll from 1978…..I remember that dress well.
But I’m thinking that the 50’s Vintage Teadress Pattern is probably more my thing these days 🙂
