Everyone's seen The Sound of Music, right? Well I hadn't until a couple of years ago. I sat down with my mum one lazy day during the Christmas holidays and watched it for the first time. By the time Julie Andrews had whizzed up an entire set of outfits for the children from one pair of curtains I was in absolute hysterics. Seriously, I was lying on the floor gasping for breath because I was laughing so hard I'd slid off the sofa and ended up in a heap.
I still don't know quite why making clothes from curtains tickled my funny bone so much. Just one of those things. I think it triggered something deep within me though because my life mission now appears to be to dress entirely from the soft furnishings department. I've got dresses made from curtains and duvet covers and upholstery fabric and now I've got a dress that looks like a chair.
Yeah, my Nana had some awesome furniture. Almost as good as that outfit I'm wearing. I want a grownup version!
