Also thinking I might try adding a beaded himo to her haori, although I'm not sure how that will play with the belt. And we do need the belt for the tail.
Here's a dress I recently made. I'm not very practiced at taking photos of myself, I'm usually on the other side of the camera, and it felt very awkward (and that's probably why I look so bad tempered). The remote control only cost £3, and has to be pointed directly at the camera, which doesn't help. It also didn't help that I don't have any space to use the 50mm lens, so I had to use the 28mm, which is really not a good idea around faces, especially if you've recently been having sinus trouble like I have, with the resulting puffy hamster face. None of the photos facing front were at all to my liking, and the ones from the back just emphasised my scoliosis, so you're not seeing those either. I still need to finish off the hem and the sleeve edging, I prefer to slip-stitch those by hand.

I refuse to spend $80.00+ dollars one one when it looks so simple. I kust don't know what type of material that is. It would have to stretch because I don't feel like adding hooks. Anyone ever make anything like this before? I need help, or a link to a tutorial would be nice.
Durin the car ride to Galesburg yesterday, I was reading the newest issue of Seventeen magazine. I came across this shirt in the issue (left). Since the trip was specifically for a day of thrifting, I made sure to buy a cheap blouse that I could reconstruct (shown right)! Do you think I can make a similiar product?! My final product is shown at the end of this post!
The shirt in the magazine look almost identical to several tops have been tempted to buy from Charlotte Russe very recently... buy who needs to buy when you can make your own & have an original, one-of-a-kind product?
I'll show you my instructions to make your own Studded Collar Cold Shoulder Shirt:
What you will need:
- Collared shirt (I used short-sleeve, but feel free to experiment with different sleeve lengths.)
- Seam ripper (or you can use the scissors for this step)
- Sewing needle
- Thread to match the shirt
- Sewing pins
- Items to embellish the collar (I used large gemstones and a Bedazzler, but you can use anything from beads to sequins)
- All-Purpose glue to attach certain embellishments to the collar
