Squinting in the early morning sunshine of 14 May.
Taken at Butlin's holiday camp in the late 40's/50's. My mum is on the far right.
I finished the dress this week - it's using the Colette Patterns 'Crepe' and I found the big, splashy roses print in my local fabric shop. I used it as an excuse to tie in with the theme of a garment inspired by 'mum'. She's very artistic and it reminded me of something she would paint - I tied it in with this photo of her in the late 40's, early 50's which she had tinted herself.
