  1. Wow I'd love to see how you deal with horrockses dress. I've only seen pictures of these dresses but the history behind them is great.

    1. I found a free pattern on the blog for it
      My first attempt it in a pink gingham...but if that goes well I'll use something a little more expensive.
      I love all the dresses of theirs I see online. But no way I could actually buy a proper vintage one.
