Description

I made this for the darwin races, I wanted to go Rockabilly style / 50’s Race Day. This was a Butterick 52’s Retro Pattern.
I also made the facinator with a pre made white flower, so easy I couldn’t believe it. Hot glue guns are amazing.

      Thanks :) Yeah I made the belt, took me a while to figure out what to use… Belt buckles are expensive. This one was $8 which I thought was ridiculous lol.. Any one turned out well and didn’t roll up when I sat down so I was happy.
