I had a dinner party to celebrate the day. It helps that my partner has Irish blood and living relatives in Ireland.
I found the fabric for the skirt in a charity shop. It started its life as a 70’s evening dress.
I really enjoying wearing this skirt. It’s a bit vintage in style etc but fun to wear. It’s funny that vintage is so in.
When I was 11- 12 I started wearing my mums cloths from the 50’s. ( this was the late 70’s , early 80’s) . I was laughed at and teased by my contemporaries. Now it’s popular with some and some shops specialise in both recycled and new retro styles! How far we’ve come thank goodness .
