Tell us about these, Jayne. It looks like you used that same stencil from before on the sequin one. You didn't sew all of those sequins on there, did you? Was the first one a recon of a shirt? You are so pretty.

awe , thank you so much Smiley .. I didnt actually sew on all those sequins .. Its a cool cheat that Ill let all My fellow craftsters in on ... It was just a pre sequined shirt 3 $ from Wally world  I did use My handy dandy plastic Halloween skeleton ( stencil )  to simply spray on some seafoam colored paint . SUPER quick and looks like it took a long time Smiley . The other is a semi infinity romper . I wanted something " booty-sentric " but No " camel toe " and not tight in the belly . I wanted to use a printed shirt after being inspired By the body suit / tanks of " Doomgaze "

The bones so to speak of the romper are just a high waisted shorts with tube attached . The t shirt is attached only at the front of the romper and can be tied in various ways for different effect . I also made the front of the shorts one piece leaving out the " camel toe" enhancing front seam . and fully lined it with thick stretchy jersey just to be safe Wink
I like that the top can be worn kinda loose and off the shoulder and I love the 90s-ness of the crushed velvet which I found amazing to work with and plan on using it more now that I know its merits
