When the aussie dollar goes high, the frock ladies go shopping

These are courtesy of the interweb, from the lovely lady at Out of the Ashes Collectibles
So, we have a midriff dress and short jacket (the back midriff piece is missing, so it was super cheap, but I should be able to fudge it).
A chevronable frock: Nice all in one collar by the look of it. I wonder if she would work in Building Blocks?

Then for a bit of a change (2000 isn't exactly retro) there is one of those 'infinite dress' thingies that you can apparently wrap a squilion ways. I rather fancy it for a tripfit - i could make it from something supercheap and see.

Talking of tripfits, Mela Purdie make some nice stuff (and some shapeless smocks) but it is oh so spensy - but good for inspiration. I want to make a version of that highwaistable skirt...

I'm with you on the high waisted skirt, I can imagine living in one what with the comfort and the stylishness.
Let the muslin-off begin!

Thanks for introducing me to Mela Purdie! I will definitely use those ideas for items in my personal wardrobe. Love those slim pants and loose jersey tops, and the color palette almost matches mine.
