Guest Frockster Jour Quatre
Meet Julianne (designer, illustrator, crafter, and maker and seller of the famous re-sew-cool craft kits. Phew!) from Melbourne.
a vision in lilac and lemon.
Isn't she beautiful?!
I was thrilled when Julianne agreed to be today's guest frockster. Not only is she the only woman I know who totally rocks lilac hair - apart from Mrs Slocombe of course! A close friend of Julianne's has just been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which makes this whole frocking-up caper a lot more meaningful.
Melita has just had an ovarian tumour removed. Not only is she writing about her experience on her blog, she is also participating in Frocktober. What a woman! I will not complain about having my photo taken and looking like a dill ever again!
Julianne is wearing (the most gorgeous) vintage 50's French frock.
(Daisies and pintucks, do I need to say more?)
She says she finds its label particularly amusing.
(I have tried and tried to rotate this pic but it is tres impossible!)
She describes it as "a housewife frock to be martyred in!"
Imagine ironing this with a cold iron and no steam! You'd have to be a martyr just to consider it!
it looks like you've just run a cold iron over it to me Julianne...or should that be Joan? Hmmmmm?
If you'd like to sponsor me to help women like your mum, daughter, sister, aunty, nana, best friend, Melita, even you(!) to have a fighting chance to survive ovarian cancer please sponsor me here.
Thank you, and thank you Julianne x
p.s. pop by gorgeous, lovely, funny Carmel's. She's frocking-up today too (and rocking those yellow Salties like it's nobody's business!)
