I had a fabulous night on Saturday on the HMS Belfast at a The Swing For Skin Charity night organised by DEBRA and the amazing Melissa aka Queenjelly.
I got to wear the suit I made in my dress making class some time ago, it took me a long time and a lot of effort went into it so it was good to give it an outing!
I wore the felt hat I blogged about making a while ago, and I must say it got plenty of compliments.
We took the opportunity to look round the ship and this chap scared me at least twice hiding in a corner so I thought it only polite to get my pic taken with him!
This is me and my friend posing at the front of the ship, it was really quite windy!
There was entertainment from the Polka Dot Dolls and the Lipstick and Curls ladies were on hand to do your hair and make up and a raffle with amazing prises. As ever I get to carried away drinking and meeting all sorts of lovely people that I forgot to take many photos!
All in all it was a fab night and I got to put some faces to twitter names and meet some bloggers in real life witch is always lovely. There is talk of them doing a 50s night next year and I'll definitely be there.
I was also luck enough to be commissioned to make Melissa a hat for the evening and here are some slightly dodgy photos of it I took before I gave it to her. Unfortunately the wind on the night proved too much for it and Mel had to take it off so I don't have any photos of her waring it but she looked lovely all the same.
