Maxi skirt (Hand-made), Vintage Broiderie-Anglaise blouse (Yesterday's car boot sale), 1980's statement earrings and assorted wood and silver bangles, Platform clogs (Local high street boutique)
I can't resist snapping up old curtains at jumble sales and car boot sales.
As well as being cheap and versatile, 1960's screen prints are so vibrant and gorgeous, far too fabulous to confine to interior design projects.
I made this maxi skirt a couple of years ago using a 1969 dress-making pattern and a pair of vintage jumble sale curtains made from a 1960's Terence Conran (Pre-Habitat) fabric.
My completed patchwork curtains in situ. Eagle-eyed readers may spot some remnants from my skirt. The French mannequin is wearing Great-Great Grandfather's Cheshire Rifleman's jacket which saw active service in the Boer War. The table and chair are both jumble sale finds. The green glass chandelier was a birthday treat.
The lime "Firecracker" print is more 1960's Terence Conran fabric, originally curtains from my first house over 20 years ago.
There's also some Shantung silk salvaged from a ruined kimono, a pillowcase from a set my parents had as a wedding present and some antique embroidered anti-macassars.
My next project is to utilise this groovy flamengo shower curtain I bought at the car boot sale yesterday for £1.
I'm thinking of a mac using this early-1950's Butterick pattern. I don't think I'll complete it before Glastonbury, but there's plenty more festivals lined up this summer.
