The Star

This is one of my favourite recycled pieces, maybe because it made the Toronto Star (even though there is no mention of me or the dress!) Actually I think it's because it is just so darn pretty. I love the cross over effect in the front like my last post and I love the way the red thread contrasts the white in the fabric.

Summer time

This is one of my favourite summer dresses I've made. It was inspired by a vintage pattern I found at the Sally Ann one day. I really like the madras pattern and colour, it's vibrant and sweet! Instead of the scoop neck design in the vintage pattern I used a cross over front on the bust line for a more feminine touch.
