la petite robe...







Its finished, the gorgeous little corduroy dress - and I'm delighted with its result. I love the colour, I love its contrasting fabric and I love that its not in the shops for purchase. And most of all, I love that my fault finder of a Hubby, didn't criticise it AT ALL, he said it was "brilliant bubes". Arrrhhhhh xx.

The khaki corduroy fabric was teamed with 100% cotton florals for its lining. Those big chunky brown buttons came from a shoe box full of miscellaneous buttons which I bought from a charity shop for about a fiver. Teamed together, I think it works.

For me, its a winner!
