Let's just say..I don't make ordinary clothes. I can buy those, what's the point?
First, my fabtastic tailcoat - my own pattern and a slightly dodgy one at that (I know the fit isn't perfect, but hey, it's my first tailored jacket, I think I did OK Smiley. Made out of a curtain fabric remnant from my Oma's 80s curtains, velvet scraps and corduroy scraps.


The artsy shot:


Now, the parrot pants. I had a LOT of fabric scraps left over from t shirt recons, in a few different colours. I bleached some, dyed some and I had even more colours. So I made these ridiculous rainbow parrot pants with hand painted lace (bit scratchy but oh well)
They are useless but "avant guarde" maybe Smiley

The waistband is this gorgeous spandex/stretchy fabric I got from the thrift store for $1. I love it so much. I don't have much more, I think I'll make a pair of gloves (I don't want to wreck it though!)

The belt cost $2. So did the t shirt (new.)
I am so cheap Cheesy

Hope you like them.

The jacket seems nice. Is that possible to get a really front view and also a back view ?
The parot's pant are really funny.

I love that jacket! I would wear id daily. I was just thinking I needed a tailcoat. The pants are not my thing but they are cute. The last picture screams Miranda July to me. I love her <3
