There is a story behind how I acquired the teal blue taffeta. It was during a visit to my sister Scarlett who lived in Brixton at the time, close to Brockwell Park. On a Sunday morning we often used to walk up to Herne Hill as there were some nice vintage shops and a local produce market. Scarlett likes mid century furnishings and was looking for a table for her TV. We came across a nice teak one in a vintage shop which she agreed to buy. The guy then informed us that it was actually a sewing table with a hinged lid and storage inside. It also came with two large carrier bags full of random sewing bits. We carried it all back and tipped it onto the floor in a huge pile which Scarlett then very kindly shared with me. The teal blue taffeta was among the contents. See post from January 2014. The white rings in the photograph were used to make some bags for Secret World.
