A Thrifty Formal Outfit

Believe it or not, this outfit cost me almost nothing. The fabric for the top was a remnant. It was so small in fact, that I couldn't fit any patterns on it, and my mother-in-law had to fudge the design for me. The skirt was originally a dress of Mum's from the 60s (at least, that's what Nan said. Mum didn't recognise it) By removing the yoke, evening out the top edge and adding a waistband I had a great skirt. Even my shoes came from an outlet!
