So, this is one of my newest designs. I came up with the idea while in the car last week and just had to make it. It is made from Olive Green with pink stripes double knit and tan fabric of unknown fibers.
Extra details:
Faux closure
3 straps at front with d-rings and Italian made flower buttons
2 straps at back that meet at the center with a d-ring and blue/gold/black buttons
Topstitching in Pink
Vest portion is fully lined
Cap like Puff sleeves

*It still needs to be hemmed and ironed, so please excuse the wrinkles*






And here is the sketch I did:



Thanx for looking.

oh wow.  that is awesome, so cute.  all these details give me alot of inspiration, and it's all totally unique.  it looks just like the drawing!  those buttons are just wonderful, are they coated with something?  you should really be proud of this creation.  is any of this reconstructed?

I love the buttons, straps, and the almost-one-shoulder-ness of it! Grin

I love your shirt. Now I wist your shirt. Wink Grin

Thanx everyone. I am really proud of this, one of my favorite pieces I have done.

oh wow.  that is awesome, so cute.  all these details give me alot of inspiration, and it's all totally unique.  it looks just like the drawing!  those buttons are just wonderful, are they coated with something?  you should really be proud of this creation.  is any of this reconstructed?
I am not sure if the buttons are coated, but they probably are. All was made from scratch, with a pattern I altered from Burdastyle's Lydia and JJ. I plan on making more like this, but hopefully I will have my serger up and running, so I can finish the seams nicely.
