My recycled outfit-for Fashion show-Next friday



Well the variety show is nearly here,dress rehersal on monday and the show is the friday after! Almost finished my outfit, not that I ever intended to make one for me but got talked into it and now feeling a tad bashful about it. My daughter took this pic of me in said outfit- a halter top and A line skirt,made out of local newspaper and lots of duck tape and covered with masking tape. The skirt now has dark brown ribbon roses on it to match the top and so do my shoes, have found a brown felt bag and added a ribbon rose to that,the hat is also a little different as I have now added newspaper to that to and is drying out in my shed-ohh what have I let myself in for????
