I have total ADD
in my sewing room. In the midst of making one outfit I ws tired of workin on I got the whim to start on this!
I wanted to try something slightly different with a pair of jeans than the average ruffled hem. So I took some sheer fabric I got from the remnant bin (I'm such a remnant junkie
). I've been more open lately to experimenting with sheers even though I hate them BADLY
! Evil, slippery, thin pieces of fabric I say! I rolled them hems which can be a pain in the *** if you don't catch the begining in the piece then the thread lopp hangs off the fabric. I did a double ruffle in the shape of the hem I cut into the jeans so that they'd have a flowy look. The jeans were cut and stitched so they would fray when washed up to a point. Then I used two purchased appliques I purchased about 3 years ago. I bought sooo many of them when I first learned to sew. I was embarrased when they started peeling off in public!
Didn't realized that you should tack them down with stitching for durability despite the adhesive. I have TONS of appliques that are collecting dust in my stash so I was very happy to finally be able to work these into SOMETHING! I embellished the top and did a quick lil sash belt. Made my Jazzi Pom bows too. Easy peasy. Nyla wore it to her B-day party ala Chuck E Cheese. I just didn't have the time to do something age or b-daythemed like I planned.
As usual she hammed it up for the camera. I swear these poses are her own, no direction necessary! I hope she'll grow up and buy Mommy her dream home with all this sass and pizzazz!
