So I've been fiddling around with different techniques in terms of screen printing and stenciling lately. I've also been going to Salvation Army and buying old slips. I stenciled (the mod podge way) an anatomical heart onto this one as well as took it in a bit. It was a bit big on me in the chest area so it would have looked a bit awkward had I not...Enjoy!





8.13 I added a new pic of how to wear the slip! It can be worn over jeans and then bunched or gathered up around the waist and secured with a belt. I think its a cute and classy way to get away with wearing a slip in public. Wink

This is such a cool idea, and that looks like a really clean stencil.
I like it  Smiley

Thanks ladies for the feedback! Haha the only goof I made while doing the stencil was I left the newspaper inside while it dried and it stuck to the inside where some of the paint bled through. All in all it turned out better than I thought it would. Grin

Boldly going where others have probably been.

I really like the rawness of the image on top of the frilly-ness of the slip. It makes for a great juxtaposition and creative contrast.

I'm glad you're wearing it out in public - it's too cute to confine to the house.

So nicely done!
