I've bought some lovely pieces off Etsy over the past 12 months, so I thought I'd share my five favourite Etsy clothes shops with you. These are all shops I look at regularly, because I know they have great stock, in a good choice of sizes, and they're not massively expensive – though everyone has a different definition of expensive, and I'm lucky enough to have a full-time job; you might feel differently. Being fuller of figure, as much as I love a chazza bargain I'd spend a lot of time naked if I didn't fill in with stuff from vintage dealers or modern manufacturers. I've stated what I've bought from each one not to be boastful, but to reassure you that I do put my money where my mouth is – I've bought from them as a regular punter and had good experiences.

Louise, please email a postal address for me to send the box of robotness to - my email address is crinolinerobot AT yahoo DOT com.
Everyone else, I've got a huge pile of wool at home, so I'm thinking of doing a winter woolly giveaway later in the year when I get my knit together. If I do find time to make some nice hats and gloves, what are people's preferred eras/colours? I won't do those as a draw, I'll do them on a 'first comment wanting it gets it' basis.

Chrystabel Leighton-Porter (the model for risque wartime cartoon strip 'Jane') and the astonishingly buxom Sabrina (no surname needed, back in the 1950s) in my 'Forgotten Bombshells' pieces, I get a fair few people looking for them, usually either their measurements or in the nude. Oh, internet*. However, a while back someone searching for 'Nice places to go with a toy robot' found my blog. Were they looking for nice places to go that already had a toy robot for them to meet, or nice places where their toy robot would be welcome? Sadly, I had no way of knowing.
