The Great ReVamp Reveal

Ta da!!!!

Its done, I'm thrilled.

My anorexic plastic model is not doing it justice, it looks much better in real life, hangs from the shoulders and flares out!









So anyway it started life as a black high neck, long sleeved jersey. I cut it up and zig zagged the edges. Then attached the dyed vintage lace, stitched the pink and purple ribbons on in a haphazard way and then hand embroidered the lazy daisies and hand stitched beads to the centres.

It is for sale in my webstore .

Thanks Natasha for this challenge, it motivated me and got me creating again!

Will be back soon to show you what else I have been doing!

Take Care

I totally agree with Connie! Why didn't you model it yourself? It looks good already but I think even better on you! Stay on this creative flow! Have a lovely day!
