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!

I'm not quite sure whether "no comments" is good or bad - any feedback?
