From a large Wednesday 13 shirt. Spectacular, I know xD
Oh, and I got the red fabric from a Hell Bunny skirt I never wore and had dissected.
It wasn't hard to make at all, once I had figured out a pattern. At first the back part was too big ("I" and "want" were on separate lines), so I had to cut all of the words out and sew them on the back of another piece of fabric. That turned out really good. And I had lots of fun with the eyelets xD I recently bought a Crop-A-Dile which I had been dying
to test it out and this was the perfect opportunity! I love that thing
Speaking of, the four extra eyelets weren't intentional xD I just ran out of ribbon.
I think it turned out pretty good. Except the white strip at the top.
It was so stupid; first I had made that part out of the red tartaney fabric and the straps out of the white fabric and it looked awesome and was completely finished on Thursday and I thought: "Wow, for the first time I won't have to rush my outfit the morning before the thing." (I was going to my fourth W13 concert the next day and wanted to wear it then)
BUT. I had overlooked one teensy
little detail. THE RED FABRIC DIDN'T STRETCH. So after I had forced myself in it, I came to the sad conclusion that the top part was wayyyy too tight and looked like crap. Then, about an hour before I had intended
to leave, I had to neatly get that part off and make a new one out of fabric that did
stretch. Which is why it's so crooked now
It didn't look so bad when I had it on though. In fact, it was a perfect fit
I don't know why it looks so big on my dress form. It's my size. And I got lots of compliments on it ^^ Shame I didn't see Wednesday himself after the concert this time...
Ahem, anyway. Here's a virtual cookie if you actually read all of that xD
I tend to ramble with these things.
On with the pictures!
(The white square with the star is a pocket. I can get so annoyed at pocket-less clothes, especially at concerts)
So, what do you think? As people who are not
