I must admit, having a daughter is lots of fun. I do feel very lucky, especially when she wants to 'play' with me.
Saturday afternoon saw an op shop run for some thrifting.. these were 2 of the 7 pieces we found. This yellow number ($8) just needed a couple of tucks on the shoulders.. a few accessories and voila!
Miss R sourced both these items herself .. check this ($12) one out...
The body fitted perfectly,the length a little long and strapless for a 12.5 year old a little much. Soooo we chopped off a bit from the hem. Refashioned it into straps, added a couple of buttons and groovy, baby!
Oh, of course MY sewing machine broke down, today. Bobbin tangling thread - big nasty cobwebby mess under the fabric. Yuk. Then i remembered i had bought Miss R a little one a few years ago.. so i used this:
That was just in case you were sighing "oh but I can't sew, " or "oh I don't have a machine".
Maybe you can...
