I used leftovers from my Anda dress to experiment with elastic shirring. My first rows are not as nice as the bottom ones, and i learnt how stabbing the elastic by accident ruins the entire effect!
I kept this as a halter, ignoring the criss-cross (as i had insufficient material for ‘wings’) and have used this as a pj top.
I REALLY wanted pics outside but it was dark before Jake got home.
However, for fun, i decided to photoshop me onto Nobbys Beach (Newcastle NSW Australia) and I found my old Pasha Bulka photos from the floods in June 2007 (the most publicity we’ve had probably haha). That big red washed up on Nobbys shore during the storms, attracting massive crowds for weeks while it was stuck!
