The best show you're not watching: The Bletchley Circle 1.1

I've become obsessed with The Bletchley Circle. The fact that it was cancelled after 7 episodes is a travesty. It's the first show I've seen with a woman who is a capable mathematician, and here are four hunting down serial killers in post-war London. The luscious costumes don't hurt either.

I would absolutely buy that a 15-year-old hand-knit this cardigan. Well done to the costume designer.

God, this is a bleak time. Let's fast-forward to the fifties.

I am obsessed with this woman's hair. Doesn't she look just like a cameo pin?

I think this sweater is fantastic. The neckline seems super high for Millie.

We're in for a lot of twee little collars from Lucy. I wonder if that changes in season two.

I love the scalloped lapels on Millie's coat. The outerwear on this show is generally enviable.

I have no idea what is happening with this fabric, but it's the best thing ever.

I do wonder why they're all wearing coats inside. Coal rationing, maybe?

Lady in Red

Another day, another revision to my raglan-sleeve bodice.

The sweater is a refashion that I didn't take a before picture of. It was just a big, boxy cardigan.
