SOOOOOOO...... i have had this amazing casino print fabric for YEARS! and i have never been able to cut it or think of anything amazing to do with it, i knew i wanted to mke something to wear since its sooo super awesome.. so today whilst reconning some other tops i found an ugly long sleeved Primark fiasco. It was misshapen and hung from the boobs even though it was meant to be fitted...

sooo... i mde it into a plain black halter.. then i was going to stencil a skullcandy logo onto it but my charming housemate stole my stencil and he wont tell me where it is.. then i was going to put patches on it but couldnt find any good ones in my collection.. THEN i was going to make my own patches out of random printed fabric i have... but i found my beloved CASINO fabric and before i knew it i had created this piece of awesomeness...

excuse what looks like incredibly wonky arms and boobs.. i was stood funny! please note the pink isnt the top, its my bra... i like to wear stuff tight and showing off my bra.

The back of the top is slashes and tied to tighten it but i dont have a pic of that.

then i swiftly whipped up a matching headband tie...

excuse my shit hair

lemme know what you thinks!!!

That's super cute! I have some casino fabric I made into a purse when I worked at Harrahs. I'll have to find the scraps and try your idea. Good job!

aw thanks  Grin

i have noticed an amazingly good plus point to the headband tie also... since normal bandanas take up so much fabric as you hve to fold them to make a strip, they end up hurting where they knot on the top of your head (i have a permanent sore spot right on top of my head) This cute little headband achieves the same look but carries much less bulk and once tied is lightwieght on the head and doesn't create sore spots or headaches!

definately one to try!! and you could make them as wide/skinny as you desire and also shape the ends into points or curves if you fancy!

I'm not normally a halter person, but I would definitely wear that!
The fabric is really fun looking and I think the pink suits it! Smiley
