I bought this horrendous elastic waisted 80s suit from an op shop and I had such low expectations that I didn’t take photos of the original. Which is very disappointing considering how magnificent it is now! I’m very pleased with myself, although I’m not quite sure why I spent so long making a summer dress when I have nothing to wear for the Australian winter. Silly girl!
