My friend asked me to design an outfit for her daughters B-day party. She showed me these shoes and I got excited and decided to do an outfit that would match! Shoes are often the basis of my inspiration for an outfit. I have been wanting to do a peace sign outfit 4EVER!
These jeans were a lot of work, and the pics didn't fully capture all the detail! Of course I had to rip the seams first. I applied rhinestones, ruffles, lace, mesh, ribbon, buttons, fabric paint and ric-rac. LOTS of applique and satin stitching work too. I sewed things in a way that will cause them to look better as they are washed since they will fray slightly in certain areas. I made a matching belt, and cut and altered a purchased tank top, making pleated wings on the sleeves. It kinda gave it a Star Trek feel, I think. Of course I had to make bows to go with it!
Mom and B-day girl loved it! I was very happy with it. Nyla begged for me to make her one and was mad that it wasn't for her. LOL
I don't have action shots but the girl looked ADORABLE in it!
Now I have 3 more of these outfits to do with different themes. GOD HELP ME!
P.S. Don't sew when you're sleepy, otherwise you'll do dumb things like sew things on upside-down. Hope nobody catches my mistake, lol.
