Black Corset Halter w/ Pink Lace & Bow Detail & Black Pleated Drawstring Skirt w/ Pink Lace & Small Bow Detail

This is my absolute favorite outfit(and first outfit) I've made so far. I'm so proud lol. The top took me 5 hours to make.  I made the top out of an old God Bless America baby tee...the words were in gems, but I ripped a majority of them off, so the shirt was pretty ugly...now it's not so ugly. Tongue I added lots of pretty pink ruffled lace and gave it that corsety look, and I made the halter straps from scrap fabric. This one doesn't really need a bra either. Tongue lol Then I made the skirt out of an Old Navy long black skirt (long skirts just aren't for Maria...she has enough to trip over) which took about 4 hours because of the pleats, then added the lace.


The shirt I made the top out of.


The whole outfit.


Being a picture whore. Tongue lol Haha...the outfit reminded me of a French maid, so I grabbed a broom. Yeah...I'm weird. Tongue lol ...and I'm sweeping carpet. -_-" lol

What do you think? Smiley

That's really fantastic!  Wow, are you sure that's your first outfit?  It's really outstanding.  The pink lace makes me think of sugar, for some reason.
