Hello everybody!  I am so sorry for the lack of blog posts this month, it has been a busy old time!  I have now completed the patterns for the Nell Robe in small, medium and large and have been negotiating a more firm date for delivery of this baby with my factory.  I hope to be receiving them on 28th November, all being well, so just in time for you to get it organised for Christmas presents for others or indeed just as a present for yourself.  I will of course keep you all informed if this date changes for any reason.

I have also been working on a new product called the Marilyn Rain Bonnet.

Picture the scenario: Your hair is perfect! It has taken hours of styling and preening and an uncomfortable night in sponge rollers. You leave to go to your soiree looking and feeling fabulous! But uh oh!!! It decides to rain/hail/sleet/blow a gale on you and your perfect “doo” is ruined 🙁

This is where the Marilyn Rain Bonnet comes in handy! It is designed to shelter your locks from the unpredictable weather wherever you may live, and when you don’t need it fold down into a cute little discreet, hand bag sized pouch.

“Another little piece of ingenious design from Betty Blue’s Loungerie! Keep your pin curls, curled and your pompadour, pompfed with this gorgeous little rain bonnet. Perfectly designed to slip into your handbag with ease, this must have item shields you from the elements to keep your hair looking flawless when caught short. Wear whilst raining or simply to shelter your “doo” from the wind. And remember – don’t let it rain on your parade!”

The design is similar to the Marilyn headscarf from Betty Blue’s Loungerie in that is has a layer of tulle with tiny bows stitched all over, trapped underneath that all important plastic layer. It also comes in the two Marilyn Headscarf colours of Classic Black and Powder Pink.  It is retailing at £25 with the usual postage charge of £6, and will be up on the website very very soon :).  You can of course pre order it from me so it gets shipped out to you as soon as it is made.  Just contact me at:


Just state which colour you would like it in and I will e-mail you details of payment and delivery dates.

I hope to do more blog posts soon, including a post on what to do with your scabby old sweat pants and details on Christmas postage dates ect.
