So I am a huge fan of my local free shop! I got this horrible black hoodie with paint splashed all  over it and added some patches I had been saving forever to make it a cute punky top!  I also made a velour skirt with panels down the side made from curtains I found in a superstore bin in Portugal! Its amazing what people discard in life and I am a great picker up of unconsidered trifles!

SO here we go:

I spent ages deliberating about cutting up the wolf patch so it could go past the zipper I love wolfie he is super cool so it was a bit of a wrench to cut him! I think it looks ok though!

The back view with my sex pistols patch I have been carrying around for 12 years (Im not joking!)
I added I bit of leopard stretch velvet down the side as well to give it a slightly raw look.

close up! I also added the spikes in the hood but as you can see I was careful and made proper protected holes for the spikes to sit in! I never remove them when I wash it but that was the idea when I did that!

side view of the skirt. The panels as I said above are made from curtains! the buckling you see at the bottom is because it is sitting loose rather than fitting to my form. I added some silver stretch velvet behind this so the rings weren't a window to my pale English legs!
 And now for a couple of pics of them together! (please note the skirt was constructed for a human body and is figure hugging rather than A line)

Thanks for looking!  Grin Any tips for improvement are always welcome!  Cheesy
