vintage M&S scarf becomes glam dress!

vintage M&S scarf becomes pretty, glam dress!

I thought I was being a bit ambitious when I spotted a really pretty vintage scarf in a charity shop the other day and suggested to my girl that i make a dress out of it for one of her dolls. (Huh?)

But today I stealed myself, didn’t think about it, got out the big, sharp scissors and cut into that fabric! It is really quite a liberating feeling to generate the joie de vivre and confidence you need to do something like this I think. And look how GORGEOUS it is – well, my girl thinks so anyway!

Not only that it took about half an hour to make! Talk about an instant make-over. (The dolly, naked, also came from a charity shop and had not a stitch to her name, ah!)
