I reconstructed this vintage camisole for Amyracinrose in the IYP swap.  My goal was to make something extremely feminine and frilly, and I think I succeded (in fact, I was a little worried that I had gone overboard, but Amy Rose assures me that she loves it)!  I forgot to take a 'before' picture, but this started out as a plain white camisole.  I dyed it pink, then added the ruffle, top panel, embroidered applique, and covered buttons.  The rose fabric started out as a pillowcase; the blue was a hankie.  I covered the buttons myself and embroidered the rose (using a Sublime Stitching pattern).  I think my favorite thing about this is the top panel.  I added it for modesty's sake, and originally wasn't sure how it would turn out.  I'm in love with it now, though, I think the sharp, geometric lines add just the right amount of structure.







Thanks for looking!

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

Drool is dripping from the corners of my mouth, dude.  This is just gorgeous and looks like it should be sold at some boutique.  Such a great job!

Great colors-- very feminine and awfully cute! Looks like it would look awesome with dressy slim blue jeans.
