DRESS made from Vintage French fabric I had on a cushion which was wearing thin. Buttons from my mum's button box. Lace gift from another Blogger.

Petticoat made from coffee stained muslin, beads from my daughter's old earring making kidt and bow from my favourite clothes label.

Lining made from a dress pattern

Wardrobe made from Husband's Macphail Malt Whisky presentation box. Have had the little pegs for ages.

Intend to do a better job of hanging the dresses !
