Description

…and rocks out in Colette patterns on the first day at work.

My uniform involves lots of black clothing, and seeing as I don’t exactly have that many black garments (that still fit me, so long teens!) I decided I should probably make something work appropriate.

So here is a Sorbetto and Ginger, all blackalicious.
Please excuse the fact that I am covered in fluff, my new place of work requires me to cut fabric for customers… :)

Material Notes

Mystery cotton/poplin type fabric, black cotton drill

    What a shame you can’t wear to work your other lovely creations in the whimsical fabrics that you love to use. Never mind, your Sorbetto and Ginger look good on.
