We had a Aussie Day theme at work and I decided I would make a dress from two Australian flags and just dress up to the max. I made this dress from the Vogue 1300 which I am a little obsessed about at the moment. Then all I had to do was accessorise it and add a little facepaint hehe. You might be able to see I also made my a bow hairclip to match!
The day went down really well and I think we may even be in the running to win a lunch put on by our work for getting into the theme of the day.
