I bought a gorgeous gold brocade dress at a vintage fair in Frome a few weeks ago, a bargain just for the material alone. It fitted well but being a straight long skirt, no good for dancing.
So i had an inkling i could add some godets and make it into something different. I had bought some blue brocade shoes at another stall for £5!!!!! I positively snapped them up. So instead of hunting for matching material i got some blue brocade shot with gold……what do you think?? Bit quirky and probably won’t see it on a catwalk anytime soon but it’s growing on me…..
