I went to the V&A on Saturday to see theÂ gorgeousÂ Ballgowns:British Glamour Since 1950 exhibition. It was fabulous! They had dresses from every decade so there was a great deal of variety. Some were incredibly elegant and some would have been right up Lady Gaga’s street!
Photography wasn’t allowed inside the exhibition but it was allowed at some of the other fashion displays in room 45
I spotted this lovely black & white number. It was black net with white felt polka dots.
Judging by the quality of my through-a-glass-case camerawork perhaps it would have been better if photography had been restricted there too…
I debated buying the exhibition poster but held off and picked up the accompanying book instead
You can buy the book from the V&A online shop but it’s no substitute for seeing the exhibit, however. If you can get there then go and see it. It runs until January 6th and I can’t recommend it more highly. If you wait until October 20th then you can see their Hollywood Costume exhibition as well.
I’ve been going a bit stir crazy needing some simplish knitting for accompanying tv viewing so I started another beret. This time it’s Meret the mystery beret pattern by Woolly Wormhead in some Cascade 220 Heathers Â shade 2433
Beret knitting is certainly proving to be my new sock knitting in that they’re relatively easy, small and I can’t seem to get enough of them.
I also have a secretish knitting project to get done this week which should be fun. 🙂
