I bought myself a birthday present - Famous Frocks: Patterns and Instructions for Recreating Fabulous Iconic Dresses--10 Patterns for 20 Dresses in All by Sara Alm and Hannah McDevitt. This does seem to have some disappointed reviewers but I like the idea that they are modern frocks not exact copies. Exact copies are no good without the appropriate undergarments and will never look like the original which was all styled up for the movie/performance/occasion it was designed for. Anyway I will have to choose one to make in the next week or so.
My cake, a Schwarzwälder Kirsch torte was baked by me and put together by my Father.
