I know what you're thinking, I look like an ice skater lost at a renaissance fair. At least that's what my family was thinking. Truth is, I'm a recovering bodycon skirt addict. I decided it was time to break out of this rut and what better way to do it than with my developing
social sewing skillz. I found some really great tutorials on Youtube for easy circle skirt patterns. All I had to do was measure my waist and divide it by 2 x pi. Math? Ugh havent seen you since high school when I took algebra 2 as a SENIOR and was tutored by a SOPHOMORE in my class. College didnt make me take math since I was a humanities major. Got to take computer science instead with all the other dum dums. Awww my golden years....
Lucky for me Halloween was just over so all the clown, uh I mean costume fabrics were on sale. And I purchased 3 yards of this crushed velvet stuff. 3 yards!!! Told you I was bad at math.
If Gus Gus could do it...
black velvet bodysuit- thrifted
skirt- did you read the title?
over the knee boots- James Cash Penney aka "JCP"
necklace- made by me, in my Etsy shop
The only bad thing besides me messing up the hem by 14 inches here, 18 inches there, was that the fabric stretched a lot once it was cut but my Craigslist hired sewing teacher saved the day by telling me I could just add elastic to the waistband. Originally it was going to be a zipper. I wouldn't call it a work of art but it is wearable and boy did I tear up the town today by wearing it to: Staples, the post office, Target, Sushi, and Food 4 Less. This girl is on fiiiiiiirrrreee. Um not really.
I am very proud and attracted to this crystal pendant necklace I made. No one wants to buy it though so I wear it. It's in my shop.
It's a wonder how Weight Watchers has not called me yet for a post partum weight loss sponsorship. I would fit their Mexican vampire demographic so perfectly #theirloss.
