My first post - here goes!
Many years ago I was given a stack of beads. Recently I was going through the tin and found two lots of teal beads which matched so I decided to make this set using black beading wire and a wrapped wire technique:
I took the jewellery to the fabric shop so I could make a matching skirt and ended up with a floor length half circle wrap around. I'd made a couple before but this was so long I had to do it in panels rather than cut out the half circle in one hit.
So for a long time I wandered around with a scrap of the skirt fabric in my wallet trying to find a matching top. I ended up getting this fabric. It's a light black knit with sequins and print. My scrap is there too.
I traced a top of mine to get a pattern for a cropped cardigan which ties in the front. It's not that clear because it's on a black singlet top but you get the gist.
And here is the complete outfit.
As I say, this is my first post so I hope the links come out ok!
