Oh how times have changed......
10 years on and I can't get enough of the stuff. Don't get me wrong - the shiny, stretchy fabric still leaves me feeling queasy, but check out these for classic inspiration, from the 40s through to today.
I'm progressing slowly with my next creation, but I am progressing.
Whilst I'm not convinced my attempts with black and white animal print will result in such gorgeousness, I'm going to give it a go.
And you'll be pleased to hear, my fabric neither stretches nor shines!
