Series 1 Episode 5
8PM Wed 23 July 2014

Dawn meets her toughest vintage adversary so far in the shape of Elissa from Sheffield, who feels she's in a fashion rut and erring on bland and boring.

Elissa wants to stand out from the crowd and wear clothes to reflect her personality, but vintage has never been an option. Dawn's sewing workshop give a sequinned top a radical reworking and breathes new life into a much loved family wedding dress.

Also, Dawn looks back to the birth of the mini skirt.
