Vontrapping & a whole lot of fun

Hi People,
How was your weekend?
Mine was lovely :)
I spent Saturday just relaxing and finishing off my dress which I am wearing below.

The fabric for this dress was actually a vintage 1970's curtain that cost me £2.99 from a local charity shop. I have decided to call this Vontraping... if you have no idea what I talking about go watch the Sound of Music and you'll know what I mean :)
I have even purchased another curtain for my next project :)

I was so excited when I finished it I decided to wear it on Sunday to the Frock me event at Chelsea Town hall. I met up with Gemma, Anna, Becky & Sundari  we had a little tea and cake then did some browsing of the vintage stalls.

What do you think of my Top hat?

I loved the fact that we all had our welly boots on & of course we did the obligatory feet shot.

I especially loved this one of us on our wall line up :)

I haven't laughed as much as I did yesterday in quite a while, I actually went home with a headache but it was worth it.

The girls are really lovely & I can't wait to meet up again :)

I hope you weekend was as lovely of mine & our week is even better.

Ciao for now
Love Katrina x
