*yawns and stretches* Ooh it's the weekend and that means it's a get back into bed for a read and a cup of tea day but courtesy of did you make that? today is no ordinary Saturday it's pyjama party Saturday! In my case it's totally tropical pyjama party Saturday. There'll be no tea just a virgin cocktail and a good read.
I used Simplicity 3971 and a couple of metres of the outrageously tropical pink flamingo fabric at £3.49 a a metre from Fabricland in Brighton. I shortened the legs because I'm more of a knee than ankle length kind of a gal. I had plans to sew the jacket originally and I hope to get round to it in due course but life got in way so for now I'm modelling them with my flamingo camisole sewn last year to see Pulp at Primavera.
It maybe raining outside but in my flat it's paradise!
As well I must say a huge thank you to Karen for giving me an opportunity to rock my Carmen Miranda fruit hat. The chances don't come along often and I always seize them with both hands :) It was originally bought for a good friend's hen do but I have to admit secretly when I've had a crap day I come home put it on, fix a cocktail and pretend I'm Carmen herself - I'm a big believer in whatever gets you through. The only bad thing about the hat is the need to always have super glue on you if you're out because the banana has an annoying habit of dislodging.
The Help an ace book and a film full of amazing outfits including Miss Celia Foot's playsuit
As for reading my material I just finished a very odd book from my book club and I'm glad to be diving straight back into The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Having watched the film late last year and laughed and cried my eyes out I was desperate to read the book hoping as is usual that it was even better than the film. It doesn't disappoint with feisty female heroines and the most appallingly awful narrow minded character Miss Hilly Holebrook that you just love to hate. It's a real page turner and I have a feeling that I may send a good part of the weekend ensconced it and now thanks to the pyjama party fantastically clothed at the same time ;-) Ooh I would highly recommend watching the film too because it's just choc full of gorgeous 60s outfits and the soundtrack is ace.
Enjoy pyjama day everyone and I can't wait to see everyone's lovely leisure wear.
Until next time happy lounging.
