In my late 20s I decided to embark on a course of evening classes to learn to dressmake.
Here I am (with a friend) wearing the sum total of three years' weekly night classes at my local Further Ed College, though I also made a somewhat physics-defying brown velvet shoulder bag (not seen here).
I just couldn't think in 3D it seems. My long-suffering tutor Christine did not seem too upset that I decided not to embark on a 4th year.
Luckily female fashion for taller girls has since become a little easier to come by.
I still quite miss my dress though (lost in the mists of various house moves). Maxi with a capital M and made of canvas a sailor would be proud of. I really can't be doing with all these pathetic spaghetti straps, which are no support to a big girl like me anyway.
