Fifties Fair 2010. Kittyhaul!

It was the Fifties Fair today at Rose Seidler house, hurrah!

(I've been playing with the hipstamatic app on my new iPhone, which explains the above photo of the house. If you are into such things you must get it, it's super fun)

Moggy and her Mr J came along; I finally met Livebird and the Curmudgeon; a grand time was had.

I bought a nice scarf:
I couldn't resist these vintage fabrics, frock lengths:
and this is what I wore:
I made this frock last Saturday night while watching the election coverage. The frock was finished on the night, unlike the election. (Moggy has an uncanny knack of making me look like a robot in photos. I don't know how she does it. She's done it before. I honestly don't know what I was doing with my hands here.) Anyway, I used this 1962 pattern (not 50s I know. I'm a rebel):
I didn't have enough fabric for the panel, which is actually sewn all down the front of the frock. Intweeging.

I love your dress and the fabrics that you snagged. Looks like you had a grand time.

Robot-hand photo taking is an ART!

I'd post what I bought, but I didn't buy a thing. And yet, still had a jolly time. Must be the excellent company!

Here's what I see in that photo- you are a well-dressed robot from the future, 1962 to be exact, at a 1950's party. Clearly!

Fabulous! I love the shape of that dress, and the fabric is lovely.
