Another Year, Another dress made of JUNK

Well, another Dowerin Field Days done and dusted.

10615551_10152210192386856_1836324359874100706_n10009283_10152210191101856_2432365628036257719_n

It was their 50th year and they had a whopping 20% increase at the gates, they are thrilled to say the least.

This year’s Ag Art Wear competition had me shaking in my boots when I saw the quality of designs come down the runway, the creativeness and bravery of these designers (aka average people with a vision), blew me away and I was nervous about how I placed….but I also kept telling myself that it is the fun of the journey, not always the outcome that is the best, and I was just thrilled to be apart of it again, and with the entries doubling from last year, I only hope that I have helped encourage others to participate (especially by donning my hessian dress in the middle of the city) you can read about that HERE)

Ok, so the results……….

I am not sure whether I have photos of ALL of the entries, but I did my best, my photos turned out awful (my trusty photographer wasn’t there to help) so I have borrowed these photos from the girls in Dowerin.
