Feb 2015 - goals 2015

Another Anna - which is a little bit toooo brown and and the fabric does not float/drape enough. I don't like it as much as my Christmas one. I may try using the skirt section with the bodice from a different dress.

A bustle skirt that I made ages ago and was too tight. I had ripped the zip out. Now I can fit into it so I re-inserted the zip so that I can wear it. I also put darts into my grey and red bustle skirt and moved the seam line as it was massively too big.

Two items towards my SWAP complete!! Fantastic. I am working on another dress at the moment.......
