((I watermarked these Max + Betty which is me + my sister, not my label or anything so PLEASE don't put this in limbo for the watermark. It's just for my blog.))
I made a few of these this week, but had to wait until my sister Betty came to visit me before I could get some awesome pics.
We had alot of fun taking these pics at the lawn bowls place behind my apartments.
They're just made out of stretchknit ((t-shirt material)) and with big embellished hearts stitched to the fronts. You can even wear them as tops/mini dresses we figured out!!
I'm going to make some more with hearts on the bums ((so placed lower down on the skirt)) and others where the heart is a pocket. Like a Heart-shaped kangaroo pocket.
My favourite pic. Betty looks so badass.
This one has a recycled denim heart, with a smaller denim heart inside it. It's trimmed with this sequin elastic I found in my stash + a bow made from the leftover fabric. The denim was from a pair of Betty's jeans - she remembered them too, even from that small piece! teehee.
i just love it. Denim + sequins is just so damn tacky, but DAMMIT I love tacky. And me + my sister rock tack like you have no idea. lol
This is Betty's favourite, she took it home with her! lol.
I added thin little crossover straps and a big ol' heart. The heart is made from red polkadot stretchknit leftovers ((you should see the size of my scraps box)) and trimmed with red lace, a red satin bow + white ribbon.
This was the first one I made. From awesomely ugly green stretchknit. It had navy + white stripes across the bottom of it, so I incorporated the white stripe into it as the hem. I have alot of ugly stretchknit, so I used some white + seagreen striped stretch as the fabric for the heart. I put a smaller green heart inside and trimmed it with lace, a satin ribbon + a big stretknit bow
AS a skirt....
and as a top or a mini dress ((leggings are advised!))
Black + white stretchknit for the skirt, with more ugly stretch from the box of ugly stretch! This time it's white with these different width ridges running across it. I used it as the heart, added a smaller black heart, some buttons, a bow + trimmed the edge in black lace.
Oh look at those shoes. They are my favourite pair of killer heels. *sigh* ♥
And as a top!
