Description

Hah! First ever official creation. Repurposed a vintage dress from the only vintage store in Cambodia (no one knows what it’s called so all the expats call the shop Tokyo Thrift), bought when I lived there over a year ago. It’s been languishing away in my to-do basket because it had a big hole in the skirt, just near the bodice so I cut that all away, re-did the side seams and made drawstring ties for the shoulders.

Just in time for summer. WIN.
