Who else wants beautiful clothes without the high-end price?

Whats the secret? Well, you just need to be creative! I set myself a little project after lusting over the beautiful "Aztec Dresses" in Allsaints. I'm definitley a fan, however, not so much a fan of the £295 price tag.
So, I collected all the beads I had ( I'm lucky to be blessed with a mam who used to be into sewing and therefore I already had all these beautiful colours)
I sketeched out my design and got to work..
I cheated a bit on this one as I had already bought the dress from H&M for £7 instead of making it myself!
I'm still working on my dress! I'm just doing little bits at a time, I thought that I may have got sick of it, but so far so good, I'm enjoying it! In the end you can be proud of your creation, and that's what design and making is all about for me, the feeling of satisfaction at the end when you know you've made a great quailty product you just love, I can't WAIT to wear it on holiday.

To be honest If you think about the months wages the £295 all saints number is costing you, you actually save time too.

It's just about being smart!

Can't wait to show the finished dress!
'Till Then
