As soon as I saw Angela Claytons video on how she made her pillbox hat I knew I wanted to try it as well. My version is in white and featured my first ever hand embroidery as well.

I made my first dress. It’s an apron dress inspired by the ‘Lorraine* dress from Hearts & Found. And it was only £12!
