Ethical piece no.2...............

Yay I'm so excited to have completed my second piece of clothing following my ethical clothing pledge.

It was a booby tubey type halter dress, which was lovely and all, but I felt a bit like mutton dressed up as lamb. There was no way I'd wear it with out a bra and it sure looked naff with my bulky nanna bra straps hanging out.

So on the chopping board it went and got transformed into a new top.


Complete with pin tuck detail.



I'm enjoying this new challenge so far!

Back later tonight, with January's design theme after we do our first round of selections for the next Northside Makers market...Yay!
