My friend asked me to design an outfit for her daughters B-day party.  She showed me these shoes and I got excited and decided to do an outfit that would match! Shoes are often the basis of my inspiration for an outfit. I have been wanting to do a peace sign outfit 4EVER!

These jeans were a lot of work, and the pics didn't fully capture all the detail!  Of course I had to rip the seams first.  I applied rhinestones, ruffles, lace, mesh, ribbon, buttons, fabric paint and ric-rac.  LOTS of applique and satin stitching work too. I sewed things in a way that will cause them to look better as they are washed since they will fray slightly in certain areas. I made a matching belt, and cut and altered a purchased tank top, making pleated wings on the sleeves. It kinda gave it a Star Trek feel, I think. Of course I had to make bows to go with it!

Mom and B-day girl loved it!  I was very happy with it.  Nyla begged for me to make her one and was mad that it wasn't for her.  LOL

I don't have action shots but the girl looked ADORABLE in it!

Now I have 3 more of these outfits to do with different themes. GOD HELP ME! Shocked

P.S. Don't sew when you're sleepy, otherwise you'll do dumb things like sew things on upside-down.  Hope nobody catches my mistake, lol.

I thought these were great but then when I saw the back - Oh my goodness! They are sooo amazing. You have put so much work into them! But it was definately worth it, and dont worry...I didnt see the upside down peace sign at all  Wink
