I’m pretty sure Jennifer Lawrence and I would get along. Have you watched the press conference she did after her win at the Oscars? The woman knows how to deal with stupid questions.

Sure the dress fabric has a little upholstery vibe going on but who the hell cares.                         She is fabulous. Have you seen Silver Linings Playbook yet? I loved it.

Meanwhile I’m stitching the lovely Satsuki blouse from Victory Patterns. It was all going swell until I fucked up and stitched the seams under the sleeves on the wrong side. Yeah….trying to channel some Jennifer cool as I reach for the unpick.

Last week whilst taking a short cut through Dendy my attention was drawn (by one very
excited 5 year old) to the huge cardboard cutouts for Oz The Great and Powerful.

We are a family that love The Wizard of Oz. It’s pretty much movie perfection, not least due to the costuming (who doesn’t want ruby slippers?). So sure I’m excited that the trailer for Oz looks very cool, but I’m not going to expect too much here in terms of actual greatness. I am however very excited by the costumes. Those Witches sure know how to power dress.

My list of films with amazing costume designs and style is long. What movies do you remember for the fashion?
