so I've changed my layout - again, I know. But I like it this time quite a lot and hope to stick with this one...
Since I had no fancy fabric left that would have matched the skirt and also didn't want to buy new one extra for this project, I decided to make the skirt simple and all black. So for the ruffled part, I used the legs of the jeans. The edges I left without a hem, so the fabric can fray as much as it wants. I kind of like the whole used look, and thanks to the simple look I can style it in various ways (^.-)
For the other thing I had fun taking some pics during the process to share it with you (not that it's extraordinarily complex xD )
Basically, I got the inspiration from this awesome Outfit by Atelier P-I-N-K-Y.
The materials: an old T-shirt, some fabric and thread in red, blue and white, and later on, some eyelets.
Then, I shortened the sleeves and cut the fabric into straps, to make ruffles out of them.
Ruffles! I idea for the three-coloured overlock seams I got from this jersey dress by Natron. She didn't have enough overlock thread so she used thee different coloured threds instead, and I thought, that looks really nice, so why not show these seams also to the rest of the world instead of hiding them?
Next, I sewed the ruffles onto the sleeve and neckline hems.
In the end, I added a bow and some eyelets - done!
