When my hubby decided to get rid of several of his button down shirts, I had to hide my glee! A shirt dress seemed like the perfect first attempt. He had this white shirt with blue and plum stripes, I LOVED the colors and had an old blue tank in the same shade. The tank was a little short and snug in the waist but I hoped the skirt attached would fix that.
I posted this a while back, at first I put the pieces together incorrectly and sewed my shirt inside out. Ugh. Not a great pic, but you can see the little gathered detail on the tank.
I finished the dress last week, but wanted to make a sash or belt to make it look a little more finished. Today was the first chance I got since having my wisdom teeth out, and even then I was a little spacey since I'm still on percocet. lol
My poor hubby usually gets to be my photographer. Sadly I waited too late and we had to take these inside...thus the poor lighting...blurry because our camera stinks. I'm just an awkward model, and my arm is bent (not as cool as I thought I was) because I have a HUGE bruise from the iv. Unfortunately the tank is still kinda snug, bummer.
I do however, LOVE this rose belt. I had seen this tutorial and a couple pictures in this post. I kind of winged it from there. I really want to make another. I'll probably use a more neutral color, not as wide and a larger set of d-rings.
We'll see if I'm brave enough to wear it out. Maybe layered, with skinny jeans and a cardi...hmm
