Tiger Army hoodie! I used some tiger print stuff I had lying around for lining the hood, the extra long cuffs, and the inserty pockets.  Lime green contrast stitching, too.  What was the front is now the back, and the original back is the hood- it says, "Never Die".


At some point, I got ahold of a bunch of Bettie Page t-shirts, and there were several of this design.  Kind of awkward to work with since the image is so hugemongous.  I think this is the best I've done with it so far.  Tunic with a contoured bust in pink and black zebra/leopard (zeopard?  leobra?) print knit and some white ruffly elastic around the top.


I think this one was my favorite this week:
Rawr!!  Scoopneck Domo hoodie with puff sleeves and polka dots. 


TUTORIALS:
hoodie
contour bust top

Domokun is killing me. I mayyyyyy need that.

Amazing, per usual.

Thanks!!
And in the interests of full disclosure, the glasses are fake-o costume glasses.  It's easier to photography myself since the glasses sometimes block dumb faces.  ;P

Yes, I'm in Kalamazoo!  I will keep that in mind, though I only usually get as far East as Ann Arbor.

Aww, thanks!  I'm not too comfortable in front of the camera, so it's nice of you to say.  Smiley

You are pretty much my hero. I've been a fan for a while. I would very much like to be you when I grow up.

The tiger army hoodie is seriously bad ass, but unfortunately it would be too large for me =[
Rockabilly music is pretty much my favorite.

The domokun top is soooo adorable. 
I am envious of your sewing skills, and, might I add, your meticulous website.
I hope that one day I might have as much talent as you =]
