I was having a mad MAD panic.. I'd been organising a photoshoot for weeks now & promised to supply the wardrobe.. it was now the night before the shoot, and I had one.. unfinished dress!! AAAAHHHHHHHH PANIC! I quickly finished the first dress & all of a sudden I found this skirt in my huge 'reconstruction box', that I'd bought from a charity shop a couple of days before! I then raked about in my fabric stash and found a 1970s vintage caravan curtain that my gran gave me a few weeks before, fortunately the two went together perfectly! So I made a bodice and put the two together, this is how it all turned out Cheesy

ps, the watermarks are there as the majority of my photography goes up online, you'd be surprised at how often these end up on myspace Sad!

The whooooole thing!
