Handmade in 2014

In 2014 I took part in Goodbye Valentino’s RTW Fast and I also stopped smoking.  Not sure which was the hardest!

One year on, I’m still a none smoker and in 2015 I’ve not signed up for the fast but I am continuing my quest for a handmade wardrobe.

I refashioned the dress in the above photo. As a maxi T shirt style I only wore it once – in the photo below, but as a halter neck shorter version I’ve worn it loads!

Unblogged I’m afraid. The top was made using 2 polycotton shirts belonging to my husband and the skirt was a huge linen maxi skirt bought in a charity shop. I took in one side and other side with the zip untouched. Shortened it and added horsehair braid to make it stand out, regretted that bit after tho!
