Recycled tunic dress

I was actually browsing Etsy shops in bed one morning looking again for clothing for Leta when she looked over at my screen, pointed specifically at this dress and said I LOVE THAT ONE.

And because of that I already marked today in the VICTORIOUS column, instead of the one titled WOULD RATHER HAVE SKEWERS JABBED UNDER THE NAIL OF MY BIG TOE.
