Sew for It

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Forever 21 top & H&M skirt (purchased on the weekend),
Guess shoes (also seen here), Bay Bangle, Hot Diamonds ring & Suzy ring

I've recently acquired a sewing machine (and by acquired, I mean 'borrowed' from my mom) and have been taking every chance I get to sew various things.  I'm a very amature sewing, but am enjoying trying to make a few various things.  Last weekend, I conquered a top (three actually) and when I showed them to my girl friend (CG), she insisted I try to make her one with an exposed zipper up the back.  Unfortunately, I ran out of matching thread tonight, so the project is not finished yet.  However, when it is, I will surely show you the results (provided it turns out).

I agree, the lace creeping around the hemlines of the top is so dramitc. The design feels very organic, like the lace is growing over and devouring the top.
