Style Muse: Anna Karina


Hello lovelies, I trust you all had a good bank holiday weekend? Mine was a very busy affair involving a ska festival and Italian fashion exhibition at the V&A, a northern soul dance workshop and an all nighter on the Sunday where I danced into the small hours until my feet literally would not let me move anymore! I still can't believe that the weekend is upon us yet again, where does the time go?

Todays post is all about Coco. I'm a bit late to the party but I've finally got around to making one. I used an orange double knit fabric, it being my favourite colour and all.

Make it easy in Crimplene

Now, as I'm sure you know, I have a lot of love for crimplene. I recently posted about a skirt that I made from this fab piece of blue/purple crimplene and now it's time to share with you the dress that I made using McCalls 9552 from 1968.

The dress went together without a hitch and I just love the panel seaming in the front and back which gives the dress a lovely shape.

Mini Skirts

No 60s dolls wardrobe would be complete without a mini skirt or two. André Courrèges had been experimenting with hemlines as early as 1961 but it wasn't until 1965 that this iconic skirt became popular in London when Mary Quant raised the hemlines of her skirts.
