Revamping a classic 40s/50s feeling dress.
So, I love to craft; making my own clothing is so liberating. Well, I also happen to be one of the biggest Old Time Radio fans. I've been listening to the stuff since I was about 13 years old.

Today me and my mum and brother went to a rummage sale at a church and I saw this polka dotted cloth and thought "How 50s." I wouldn't be surprised if one of those little old ladies had had that cloth since the 40s but that's besides the point.

So this morning at midnight I started and worked til about 3:30 in the morning. All the while listening to Old Time Radio. Here is what she turned out looking like. :]

*Sorry for the depressed pic, I took it at 3 in the morning so I was pretty dead on my feet. xD*
