It's a finale



I'm still working on dress ups....

It's lots of fun being able to just make anything. I picked up this spangly offcut in the remnant bin at Spotlight last week for $2. I've teamed it with some net curtain offcut, some ribbon from the stash, and some binding to finish the raw edge (have I mentioned how much I hate hemming). It reminds me of The Jetsons.

Tonight is the grand finale of the Northcote Kris Kringle Market, so if you've been meaning to come along over the past few weeks, it's the last chance. I'll be there from 5.30 PM - 10.00 PM, and I'm hoping that we can break the cycle of thunder and rain this week!

Super cute.
Remnants are the way to go... and making dress-ups is so much fun - all the possibilities & opportunities to be taken over my a young and imaginative mind. Wonderous!!!

Sally said...

... not sure that wonderous is a word - if it isn't it should be - sounds good ...don't you think?

The shimmery look of the skirt for this dress-up is great, you're right - very space-age. They are such wonderful gifts, my girls turn whatever they can find into a dress-up.

You make the best dress-ups ever!! I can't believe it's raining ... AGAIN! Hope the market is a success anyway with lots of last minute shoppers!

Tania said...

You do realise, now that the Kris Kringle markets are nearly over, the drought is coming back? Hope it goes brilliantly – and I'd wear that 'Jetsons' outfit in a FLASH!
