Hanwell Locks

I'm preparing a post on my current project, the "Little Rock" dress, for which I'm just drafting the pattern and soon to embark on the first muslin - it's a little behind schedule (it was planned as a March project, but it won't be done until April is well underway). In the meantime I thought I'd share just a couple more pictures from the weekend - we've been exploring our local area in the sunshine. A stroll along the canal towpath by Hanwell Locks is almost literally on our doorstep - the canal runs right behind our close, two minutes walk from our front door.

Dress, made by me from a 1940s pattern; Cardigan, Boden, via charity shop; Necklace, charity shop; Sandals, purchased in Thailand; Bakelite and plastic bangles, various; Handbag, etsy.


  1. As ever I adore your oufit! I find it so funny that you're living where I grew up! In fact, my Mum still has a flat in Greenford. I grew up right by West Ealing station and my daughter was born in Ealing Hospital :)
