It's something quite familiar

I bought this handmade cotton shift dress from a Sunshine Coast op shop, with a whole bunch that came from an elderly hoarders collection. I was immediately drawn to that fabric. I added some darts with my sewing machine, as it was a bit shapeless to start with. We took these pics at the little historic local church that sits in the middle of suburbia, but it feels like you're miles away in a little forest.
