Thx everybody!
My top is nothing but a rectangle with a drawstring around the bottom hem. Since it was so boxy, I decided to tuck the front part under my bra and use a small piece of scrap fabric to tie the middle front to my bra to bring it in and show some cleavage!

I've been trying to cut back from wearing black all of the damn time and incorporate colors & prints back into my life. I love that "matchy-matchy" garments are played and mixing prints is accepted.

The skirt is $1 fabric that I bought from Walmart over a year ago and the top is African fabric that I bought about 6 years ago that I was always afraid to use until now. Both garments were both hella easy to make and I look forward to making more skirts & crop tops like these! Hope ya'll like!









Thx for looking!

Thx everyone! Cheesy!!!

Oh! Beautiful waist beads.  I have been wanting to make one with gemstones added in that hang kinda low for certain gems to hang over *coughs* my interior feminine organs....that could use the energies they offer.... Embarrassed   buttttt

I've Just keep procrastinating about doing it. Now dont have any more excuses since  I have all the beads and gems and now with your tut I better just get a beadin!  Grin yeahhh!   Grin

Yes Ms. Lady! Get ta' beading! You'll feel like a goddess once you're done! Whenever I'm randomly naked in front of the mirror, I can't help but to do a hip shimmy cuz my beads just decorates my belly so beautifully and I'm amused by the sound of my beads clashing. Oooo! Especially when I go down some steps, the beads clashes again. It's so melodic.

Can a 57 year old queen/plus size woman enjoy waist beads?  Yes she can!  Thanks for the inspiration.  Happy days!

HELL YEAH YOU CAN!!!! I saw them first on some African elders, so they're definitely ageless. You're very welcome!

I've been wearing and making waistbeads for about 4 years now and I never remove them. It's part of my femininity and sexuality. For my body, I feel more comfy using elastic wire by Stretch Magic and I purchase my African Christmas beads from HappyMangoBeads.com .




I even made a simple tutorial on how to make some! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZK7BAGtSFQ

I hope you like and have been inspired.

Sheer & stretch scare me. So kudos for not being afraid of them...

oh, i was scared & hesitant too. That's why i was oh so thankful that the lady at the fabric store gave me some tips!

Love the high waist bikini bottom. Have never seen anything like that....if you said the words "high waist bikini bottom" to me, I would think "old lady bikini" but I would be wrong, it's really freaking cute.

well, "old lady" bikini is basically like the vintage bikinis that you would see on pin up models, that's how i thought & envisioned it! Thx so much!

I'm curious, how does the old bra base hold up in the water?

I haven't worn the swimsuit in water yet, but i would imagine it would be just fine especially since i'll be mostly wearing it as a halter.
