An Adrift midi dress hack

I made my first Papercut Adrift dress just a few weeks ago (check it out here!) and immediately decided it’s the perfect summer holiday dress – it’s light and airy and relatively modest for those visits to religious sites etc. And with my upcoming holiday to Egypt and Jordan at the end of the month, […]

Replicating the Runway A/W 17

So this post is about 6 months late… Needless to say it’s taken me a wee bit longer than expected to find the motivation and inspiration for this!
