I got a few projects this weekend.
They are quite weather dependent so if it's sunny I will
finish painting the back fence, replant most of my house-
plants and sow some seeds.

I also plan to revamp this dress from a sad sagging 80's
rag into a stunning well fitted 40's must have.
It's about two or three sizes too big at the moment and
I look like a midget wearing it. (I'm only 158 cm.)
I need to take it in on the sides on the top part and the
most important thing of all, change the awful sleeves.
I've been looking at 1940's dress patterns for some well
needed inspiration and the three different models in the
picture below is kind of what I want it too look like.

On Sunday me and my man are going to Dingwalls 25th
Anniversary Rock n Roll Party.
Still don't have a clue what to wear... :))

I don't think we have time to go to any car boot sales.
