Forever New (www.forevernew.com.au) recently opened a great big store in the middle of Melbourne City, and over the weekend I headed in to have a bit of a looksee.
It’s a brand that goes up to a size 16, and I can just about squeeze into most of it. At the moment the range is ultra-pretty with eye-watering quantities of lace and frills. I love it, though I can’t pull it off (sob!)
I tried on half-a-dozen tops, and dismissed each and every one as being too frou-frou, and finally decided that I would take matters into my own hands:
Bolstered by my success with the Ikea skirt, I popped into Lincraft (www.lincraft.com.au) for 2-bucks worth of lace, then hauled out my trusty sewing machine, and sewed it around the collar of a target t-shirt, and voila!
It’s a little french-maid, but it’s a cheap and cheerful alternative to the confections in Forever New.
