I spent a large section of the last weekend with a substantial hangover, the result of celebrating my boy's birthday (perhaps a little too) thoroughly. Subsequently, I spent a great deal of time on the sofa indulging in a hedonistic quantity of Mad Men episodes. Something finally dawned on me, the seed of which had been planted years earlier: I want to channel Midge Daniels and nail an early Beat Generation vibe (with a pinch of pulp fiction cover art hell-raising temptress for good measure). Why keep such revelations to myself? Why not share this flash of proposed sartorial brilliance with the wider sewing community? Exactly, that's what I thought! That's why I covered this slightly off-piste topic for my most recent weekly post at the Colette Patterns blog!
