Flamingo stripes work –

8 Jul


Look at these stripes, ain’t they pretty  ? This shirt would work for any quirky man! I sorta  felt bad after the refashion for not having saved more material from it, actually the neck collar and the sleeves were saved and shall be used in the future.


Uitati-va la dungulitele acestea, nu sunt dragute ? Mi se pare ca s-ar potrivi oricarui barbat 😀   ..M-am simtit putin prost dupa ce am facut rochia pentru ca nu am reusit sa salvez mai mult material , dar mi-a ramas gulerul si manecile pe care le voi folosi in viitor.


This material is about 5 meters long (about 16 feet) and 0.5 meters in width (1.5 feet) – it was just lying around so I thought I should use it somehow.


Acest material are cam 5 metri lungime si 0.5 metri latime. – statea aiurea si m-am gandit sa il folosesc cumva.

Then I cut the part above the bust and measured and cut the black stripe , which was then sewed to the shirt. Also from the black material I made two straps and then sewed them to the upper part of the dress.


Apoi am taiat partea de deasupra bustului si am masurat si taiat banda neagra, care a fost cusuta mai apoi de camasa. Deasemenea din materialul negru am facut 2 bretele pe care le-am cusut de bustiera rochiei.

End result.
