Yesterday I had a little retail therepy.
I'm not one for shopping unless I really have to.
I don't go window shopping, I don't know every single shop in town - apart from the op-shops!! And, if someones says to me, "You know that shop in blah blah street that has all the blah blah's in it?" I politely say "No, sorry, I don't know that one".
But what I do know is Myer and Target.
Myer was having their "Take a further 30% of the already reduced ticket price" recently. Now, what girl doesn't like the sound of that? Well, I went in, looked around and couldn't see anything that I really liked for the price I was willing to pay.
Feeling a little let down, I popped into Target. Well, our Target , in town, has recently doubled (it seems) their range of womens clothing and they had "buy one item get the next at 50% off"....so I scoured around in my usual thrifty way looking at all of my options trying to work out the best bargain, if things would match or go with a lot of my other worn out rubbish at home......
Then I spied this little number......the only one....and in my size........ Yeah!!!! I went on some more and found two pretty tops and a T-shirt. Yep, I did well. When I brought everything home I realised that this knit top would go perfectly with the Amy Butler fabric I had purchased a while ago.....
But don't fret, I am a little short in the height department, I took a little off the pattern and voila!!! It all fitted. So now I will have a lovely summery dress to go with my little knit top. Oh, and yes, I did have enough to make a bag to go with it!
I have made this one before and it only takes about 2 hours from start to finish.
Not today though as I have a few orders to finish off first....
At least it is cut out and ready to be sewn up.
It's just made it's way onto my "unfinished business" pile.
I shall keep you posted....
