Southampton, Uni...






I dug out all the stuff which was waiting to be taken to the charity shop, covering all my junk was an awful green dust/drop sheet. I scavenged through all my old clothes for findings and useful bits which I could use for the challenge – in the end I decided to just make something from the dust sheet!!! I amongst the crap was an ancient “Style” pattern so I resurected it!

    In close-up the fabric did look a little ‘eh’. However the style you chose gave the large scale print a chance to shine and I really like the result. Great use of ‘found’ fabric. Really suits Sydney!
