Here are a few photographs of my first ever 1940's suit, bought for £8 from
a local charity shop, it has to be one of my favourite purchases to date,
it fits like a dream! However I haven't worn it for months due to the
original zipper on the skirt busting. Since my new years resolution was
to try and work through my overflowing draws of repairs I dug the
suit out Thursday night and set to work on fitting a new zip. Twenty
minutes later and its as good as new! I wore it out to dinner with my old
colleagues and great friends from Rokit, Kirsty and Tana. It was a really
lovely evening, apart from the table behind us who seemed to couldn't
stop gawking in shock at our outfits, easily amused!
Suit, belt, hat and hat-pin, all from charity shops.
