Sometimes a refashion just jumps out at me and this polkadot number was one such occasion. I do love those refashions, but to be honest, it’s not always that easy.
Do you see the potential too?
At the moment, it’s got huge shoulder pads and a button that draws the eye straight to the belly button. “Hey guys! Like my big, freakishly white outie?!”. Then there’s that bizarre fake shirt attached to it at the front. Yuck. Continue reading
I walked past this shirt for a few weeks in the op-shop before I gave in and bought it. I’m so pleased I finally did!
The fabric on this shirt is lightweight and will be great in summer. The style wasn’t quite me though and it needed a little tweaking. Continue reading

I unfortunately can’t take credit for all these dolls. My friend Kris made four in the time it took me to make one! Her two are on the left and Poppet cried when I took the pink one away from her.
