Variations on a Theme

I walked in, someone said "wow" and snapped a picture.

I said, "send it to me."

And they did.

Blog post done just like that (snap).

~ moi, paintified ~


Okay, here's a few details:

I just made the stretch mesh peasant top with grosgrain ribbon tie, self-drafted.  And the linen tablecloth bloomers based on Tina Givens Lainey pants pattern.

You've previously seen the TG stretch mesh Tessa slip pattern and the old jeans made into the Vogue 8928 hat pattern.

I already had the shoes, sox and sunnies.

With the bare minimum I'm heading over to Patti's Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Where What I Like, and Cheri's Shoe and Tell when they all go live.  Hope to see you all there!  Oh, and Judith's Hat Attack.



Oh wait, there's more...
 
~ with blue hair as an accessory ~



~ and without the bloomers ~


~ but there's matching sox and very cool shoes ~


~ plus a lovely vintage clasp ~

Now, that's a wrap.

  2. I have yards of print mesh, a misorder from Fabric Mart, and it's just too....itchy for tights. But that tunic overslip thang... That's got some stuff going on. I am still loving your 'hair' ornament. Ornamental hair? Love it anywhich.

    1. Itchy mesh? Must have metallic threads running through it... Yes, layering it is the way to go then. The more layers the better I always say. Especially in mesh, it's so airy and thin.

  7. I knew those were Trippen shoes the moment I laid eyes on them! Some day....sigh. That's so cool that you made matching socks. I would have asked to take your photo too.

    BTW, I bought myself a sewing machine!! Don't expect to see any creations anytime soon; I need to make friends with the machine, and learn its habits.

    1. Don't be jealous, Denise. I made it from old blue jeans and a scrap of linen using Vogue 8928 pattern - so you can make one yourself!
