I volunteer with Oxfam, and wanted something special to wear when I worked for the charity at Latitude festival. So I made this coffee date dress from some material bought in a charity shop. I omitted the ruffle but I’m really happy with how the dress turned out (yes I know I cut one of the skirt pieces out wrong but quite like the mismatched stripes at the back)… so if you’re thinking of making one you should!
