The Bombshellettes…

Posted on

I”ve been loving this band for a while and was so excited to hear they where going to be playing at the Vintage Festival last weekend! Unfortunately for me they were playing on the Sunday so I had to miss them! It sounded like I missed an amazing gig as everyone I’ve spoken too couldn’t praise them enough!

I got introduced to The Bombshellettes when my friend was describing the band that she plays sax for and I KNEW I had to see them play! When I first heard The Bombshellettes play at the London Themes Festival last year with the Boy we couldn’t help but fall in love with this fantastic 1940’s all girl swing band!  Inspired by Ina Ray Hutton and her Melodears, the Ivy Benson and her All Girl Orchestra, and Anna Mae Winburn with the International Sweetheart of Rhythm you can’t help but start to dance when you hear this talented group start to play!

There has been some fantastic buzz around these girls since last sunday and even spotted a HUGE article in this months Vintage Life Magazine!!!

I think all of you will love them as much as I do so keep your eyes peeled for these very talented ladies!

My new project…

I have been working in my new job for 4 months now and finally Ms Ooobop has rubbed off on me! She will be proud to hear that I have just ordered 2 vintage dress patterns off Etsy!
One is a 1940’s style halter neck dress and the other is a 1950’s wrap dress!

As it have been FOREVER since I’ve made anything on my sewing machine this could be quite a ambitious project… fingers crossed

Now just got to find some interesting fabric!
