A few weeks ago, I was introduced me to an awesome girl who wanted me to make her an outfit. Her name is Starr and she's in the band Serpent Witch. She wanted something a little different to wear at one of their upcoming shows. So she gave me a couple t-shirts to cut up and requested lace up sides. She also had a cool cape made of netting and wanted me to line the hood with velvet.

Metal Horns Skeleton Shirt:


Back view. Made some slashes at the top, asymmetrical hem, and gathered the waist.


Lace up side and darts detail:


She was so happy with it how it fit and how it turned out! And I was so happy to see her rocking out in front of a crowd, wearing something I made! What a good feeling! There are lots more pics on my Facebook, including some with the cape on.

I don't think anyone can post too often if they have something good or interesting to say!

Your friend is creepy looking! In a good way. That is the idea with rock bands. I grew up with some really interesting ones!

You did a great job re-purposing her things. And I am glad you enjoyed her performance in your designed outfit/attire/costume.

Rock on!

You totally don't post too much. It's inspiring. Smiley

also, I really like the work and thought put in to the design of fitting. the back waist gathers were a brilliant way of making that skirt shape look awesome in the front, without adding a lot of bulk. Do you ever use circular ruffling?

Thanks, blue.laroo! That's really nice to hear! I may have used circular ruffles before but I don't remember what for. For this dress, I was using a big chunk of t-shirt. I didn't cut a circle or even a half circle shape but I did cut the top of it at a curve.
