I saw a wonderful outfit on tv the other night. Watching a pathe news recording made back in 1963 of the Kennedys, shortly before the terrible deed. They were covering how glamorous Jacqui K was, even from a tiny girl in her lovely safe almost aristocratic upbringing. The clothes they featured were beauties from the studios of Chanel etc. I have always lusted after a cute little chanel inspired jacket and skirt but never had the opportunity to buy them – by the time I reached the stage of being able to think of that expense, the garments were out of style and not easily available. Then last year whilst in a fantastic fabric emporium in Limassol, I saw some sewing patterns hanging haphazardly on a rack near the suiting rolls. The joy of being able to leaf through these iconic designs was nearly too much! I still can’t have. I have never developed sewing, let alone tailoring skills!
