So...here's the story. I picked up this horrible short and shirt set from value village, because I wanted to use the shorts for a sculpture project earlier this year. It's a woman's XL, it's large, boxy, and something you might see an overweight grandma sporting in the summer with some oversized raybans. So, I've had the shirt kicking around for a while, and I knew I wanted to do *something* with it...because the fabric is pretty great. Blue and white stripped seersucker...can't go wrong. So, I teamed it up with some white fabric I had laying around and made my ode to sailor pin-up complete with machine embroidered stars. I'm pleased.
Here's the fat-grandma before:
And the sailor-girl after:
Oooh! Some side action:
It brings out the tart in me...I just can't help it...lol.
Thanks for looking!
