Walking through the...haze

Dress: Dee V at very.co.uk   Shoes: Primark   Watch: Urban Outfitters

Well as you probably remember from the previous post, (not that I've been harping on about it much!!!) I have recently managed to get my Diane Vickers dress altered from wayyyy back in November when I purchased it! When I was back in Brighton in February Mum and I went down to the tiny little village of Rottingdean (beautiful place, worth visiting for little walk round the gardens of Rudyard Kipling's house) where, nestled in a tiny building by the pond, is the workshop of Elif Kose who works on alterations, repairs and her own garments - was wearing a lovely pencil skirt when we saw her from some vintage fabric.

Elif first worked on my sisters wedding dress, here, and I wish I had the same skills as her seeing as how she has managed to make my dress fit without a trace of alteration, I'm sure no mean feat with all the netting and side zip etc! Anyways would thoroughly recommend her services if you need anything doing, check out her contact details at elifkose.co.uk, along with the sweetest picture of her workshop! Oh I miss Brighton in the sunshine :(
