Going girly on the cheap

Hey, look at this. I found this dress in a charity shop yesterday, it was on the £1 rail outside the front of the shop. The colours caught my eye, some pretty fabric for bag making I thought.

It's in a soft jersey fabric in new condition, no worn bits anywhere, not a designer label though. It has a collar and little cap sleeves, buttons down the front, and a tie belt.

The label says it's a size 16, I am a 10/12 and it fits me perfectly.

I am as pleased as punch. This little number is not going to get cut up, I am going to wear it. Now all I want is some sun.

  6. Way to pretty for a tote bag! Much better as it is.

    Have you considered taking orders for your cat food totes from overseas?

  7. Very pretty & ready for all this lovely weather we're supposed to be getting. Yes, too pretty to cut up.

    I've got a coat I bought from a jumble sale to cut up for a rug but when I got it home, it's wool and angora with a label from Berlin. That's not going to see scissors.

  15. That dress is gorgeous. The colours are so summery and bright. What a steal!

    I've been reading for a while but couldn't leave notes (but can now - thankyou!) I saw you on one of our non-commercial tv shows here in Australia and thought I might learn a thing or two from you! Hi!
