here are two completed looks for my upcoming fashion show at local honey. actually, i have 3 looks, but the third piece is a romper that i need to make a belt for before i start snapping pictures – it looks pretty shapeless without. at any rate, two looks! yay! i am so behind & i am starting to freak out! haha!
i am really excited about these clothes, y’all. it makes the whole not-sewing-for-myself business a little more tolerable :)
i loooove this crop top. it’s so light & airy & summery! crop tops are pretty big here this summer (present company included in that tally!) so hopefully this will go over well. if it doesn’t, whatever. i’ll wear it! haha!
the red shorts are based off my favorite shorts pattern block with a bunch of modifications. the waistband is faced with horsehair interfacing so it won’t wrinkle & bunch from normal wear :)
sorry about the weird crotch; dolly isn’t actually made to wear shorts so she definitely wears them weird.
my favorite part about the shorts – the pockets are red gingham! and the buttons – couldn’t find exact matching buttons in my stash, but i did have two matching buttons in different sizes. i actually like the way it looks!
the back. i’ve been seeing this twisty-tie halter neck bow thing all over the internet lately, so i thought i’d try it out too. i like how adjustable it is. it is really hard for me to figure proper halter & shoulder strap lengths bc everyone is so different – so this should work for plenty of people!
sorry it looks so wonky on the form – i didn’t spend too long perfecting it bc it was seriously over 100* outside (with a 75% humidity) while i was taking these pictures. gotta love the south!
what do you think, internet?
