The re-enactors at the Bletchley Park 1940s weekend look incredible every year, especially the women. I snapped as many fabulous outfits as I could from my vintage stall by the lake but there were so many more I didn’t catch or didn’t photograph well enough. Here are some of the best dressed from this year’s 1940s festival.

This hat is one of the best I have ever seen. The little blackbirds are fantastic.

 I love the pattern on this little jumper and I really want a pair of 1940s-style sunglasses.
