I only bloody well went and did it didn't I!
(I actually finished it a few weeks ago, just haven't got around to posting about it until now)
Here it is:
It was really easy and cheap to make!
I eBayed everything. The fabric was around £1.20 for a large piece; the studs were £1 for a bagful (came from China and didn't take long at all!) and the jacket (a men's size small) was second-hand from a UK seller, picked up for around £8.
My sewing machine has packed in so I had the painstaking task of handstitching the fabric on.
The material was really bright so I ended up using the underside of it as the bit on show.
This was after a rather haphazard attempt at trying to lighten it in the bathroom sink with Domestos. This didn't work- not that I'd recommend it even if it had...
|Don't think my outfit goes together so well but just threw the jacket over what I had on for the picture.|
Necklace: Vintage Fair; Dress: £19, inlovewithfashion.com; Vintage Belt: 50p, charity shop; Ring: gift
I'm really pleased with it! I've only worn it a handful of times but had loads of compliments.
I'm in a really creative mood at the moment- are you customising anything for Spring?
