While looking through the New York Couture site (http://newyorkcouture.net), I came across and sorta fell in love with this piece:
http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b9/deliciousbassist/pinkgreenpurpzipbolero1.jpg

I realized that I had a tye-dye shirt I'd made at my last school carnival lying around in my backyard, of all places, and I decided to finally wash it and get to work.

Here it is after I cut off the collar and sleeves:


And after a little sewing, here's my new zip bolero:

Look ma, no make-up!


Ignore my dumb tired face, I'm sick.



Here's uno close up shot:


This zipper looks like it's tilted, but it's not. You may notice the slight bunching. My zipper foot is MIA, so I decided to go without it. Coulda been worse.

And there it is! If anybody wants a tutorial, I'd be glad to make one.

Thanks for looking!

That's really cute!  Normally little shirts like this confuse me, but I like this one.  I'm a camp counselor, so anything with tie dye meets gives me good memories.   Smiley

Pretty cool. Smiley BTW, you're only supposed to post your projects to one board (the exception being things you made in a swap - they can be on the swap board and their appropriate board).

Thanks, I was just confused as to where to go. I'll go remove it from the other board.
