Wowee, what an amazing festival dress, the green and pink work so well together!

I saw some white curtains with flys embroidered on them in IKEA which I really wanted to make into a dress, but they were a bit too pricey.

Some of the stalls had some really nice dresses, did anyone see the MAXI C LONDON dresses? lovely styles, brilliant for inspiration. Stall holders were practically giving away stock at the end of the festival and there were piles of new clothes just chucked because they had a bit of mud of them.

Jacky, I felt like it was all a bit of a joke. Stop climate chaos? We were there ten days and it was only at the end of the festival (Wednesday) we realised the full extent of the waste. It was like apocalypse, we picked our way through thousands and thousands of pounds worth of new tents, brand new camping equipment and clothes just bought for this one event and abandoned. I have never seen anything like that in my life.

Did anyone visit the Green crafts field? There was loads of really interesting things to see and do. We were the blacksmiths with the huge truck carousing on the corner. (before you go into the field where Banksy's stonehenge was) Unfortunately we didn't do much making because of the lousy weather.

OMG I cannot believe you picked out this stall from the thousands that were there - this is where I bought the only other dress at the festival! They had these dresses with olive green sleeves and 8 gored skirts made of this lush Art Nouveau fabric that I knew I'd never be able to find ever again. So I bought it (for 25) and it fits like a glove. I love it so much I"m already thinking of using it as a pattern to make more.

Yeah, the stop climate change was a huge mass of hypocrisy with the parking chaos that could've been easily avoided. Yeah, let's all sign a piece of paper and then have 50,000 cars idling in a field for 8 hours with people pissing in the fields because there weren't any toilets provided (or food, or water). I'm so bitter, we got up at 5am on Monday to avoid these problems, and it took us ten minutes' shy of TWELVE HOURS to get out of the car park. It was entirely Glastonbury Festival's fault, too - they had three days to organise tacks, exit signs, stewards, towing tractors (there was one for several thousand cars), and provisions, and they just abandoned us out there.

This was my 6th Glastonbury, but I'd have to seriously think long and hard about going back again after the carpark situation this year.

but what's glastonbury? 


There's a great new DVD out called "Glastonbury" which tells the story of the festival, has great footage of the musicians and attendees throughout the history of the festival.  It  even has some hilarious footage of the townspeople's views on the festival.  It's really a great DVD.. and the closest most of us Americans are going to get to actually going.

Size wise it's bigger than Bonnaroo (In Tennessee) which draws about 80,000-95,000 people a year.. and the 'roo has only been going on for 7 years.  I guess it would be like if the 'roo was crossed with the first Woodstock...   I wish we would have gotten some the rain at the 'roo.. but rain in June in Tennessee is hard to come by..

Well, lets be frank Cheesy I think it was the only stall not selling either questionable hippy clothing or novelty stuff you see every single year at festivals. But, those dresses were very very hot, you should of tried haggling. I paid 28 for one of those 25 dresses as well as those nice 15 skirts. I couldn't decide which I liked more!

When I got home I went out to see The Slackers and I wore the dress, I got loads of compliments on it from people I've never seen before in my life and was even told with authority I was the best dressed and prettiest girl in the venue. Shocked hehehe  I felt smug.

Awww what a nightmare. I heard about people having to wait hours to get out. We escaped all that by arriving so early and leaving so late. We had a huge army truck so getting out of the mud wasn't an issue at all, the wheel comes up to my waist!

It's shameful, isn't it? I saw so many people just kicking off their wellies and leaving them when getting into their cars. I know most festivals have recycling teams to gather up tents, camping equipment etc. I can't believe how many people treat these items as disposable! How much use will a charity find for a flimsy tent that cost a tenner in Tesco?

We have a similar problem with clothing donations in the shops, because fast fashion from Primark, George, New Look (and so on) is really poor quality.

Oh well, I'm off to Latitude this weekend, wonder if Mean Fiddler will have better organisation for mini-Glasto?
