Hooray! Our Glastonbury Festival tickets arrived this morning so with the added bonus of a Glastonbury article in today's Guardian G2 magazine I got my hungover head into gear in an attempt to create a festival-worthy outfit.
I'd snaffled a shoebox stuffed with artifical flowers for a quid at a car boot sale a fortnight ago with creative thoughts in mind. I pulled the flowers apart and individually hand-sewed the petals and leaves on to a cheapo elastic headband.
It was such fun sitting in the sunshine with my sewing box that I ended up making three.
At least I've got a choice if the rain holds off.
The vintage "Pia & Paula" Finnish-made maxi skirt was a £4.99 find on eBay last year. I can't for the life of me think why no-one else placed a bid on such a beauty.
The top was originally a 1950's satin scarf I cut up and refashioned.
Mmmm, what shall I create next?
Thanks for all the lovely comments and well-wishes for yesterday. It turned out to be a beautiful day and a fitting tribute to my wonderful Mum.
