Hamilton, New Ze...
My mum’s been holding onto some brushed cotton for a while which didn’t really have a purpose besides she was yet to donate to the op shop. I claimed it and decided to make a winter dress (because although I have a million, another one wouldn’t hurt). I really liked the dresses in the February 2011 Burda (as I’ve seen so have a tonnes others) so I figured why not? Even though they’re more summer dresses, I could layer it up with stockings and cardigans and it is brushed cotton…
My shoes were $5 from the vintage shop in town and my coat was $6 from the Salvation Army. The scarf I used as a belt was from my Grandma.
