Mackenzie frock stars

I really enjoyed this years Frock stars. for those of you who don't know what it is. It is a competition where you take an ugly dress and give it new life by turning it into something amazing. I shared with you a couple of months ago about the UGLY dress I had chosen. I mainly chose it for the gorgeous orange Linen that it was made from.
So here is what i did. I turned this
into this


I used the sew serendipity book and made the skirt from one of the patterns but alternated the panels between the Joel dewberry Aviary 2 fabric and the orange linen as i didn't have enough of the orange linen to do all of the skirt.
Here are some highlights from the show - Photos stolen from my friend Kirsty (well technically not stolen as they are of me- hehe)

Kirsty entered too. She made the amazing creation that Sarah was modelling for her. A floaty Tunic with a Obi style Belt and matching fabric knot necklace. Ladies hope you don't mind being famous on my blog.

It was a great event - shared with awesome friends.
