With the extra day off school today, I had time to do all sorts of stuff. I washed windows, washed the kitchen floor, got through some ironing, cleaned the house, finished a piece of sewing, and cooked a superb meal for tea. I found this frumpy old dress in an op shop a few days ago - ankle length, long sleeved, and shapeless. I didn't even try it on, but for $1 I knew I could resuscitate the gorgeous fabric. I've also been on a tie hunt - (I'm still looking...men...ahem...) so had this one ready and waiting (I daresay it tied in rather well). I know, that's knot funny. Anyway, here is my new "upcycled" top!
