I slathered myself in sunscreen, but still managed to get a little bit burnt (as you might be able tell from the above photo). The heat kept the crowds away too - the numbers were way down this year. We love the LL Festival, it's pretty low key but they always have great bands playing - this year they had Pat Capocci and The Twilight Rhythm Boys.
Plus the Blue Mountains is awash with vintage and retro stores!
We met up with our pal Christine (from Classic Vintage), and spent the afternoon eating cake and dancing. No photos of me dancing, but here are some of Jakk and Christine... They're so cute!
My desert-scene skirt felt like an appropriate thing to wear with the heat!
The fabric is true 1950's border print (from Etsy) and I just hand pleated the fabric instead of making a gathered waist dirndl skirt. There was also enough fabric to make a pocket in the side seam.
