This was my entry for Round 1 of Crafting With The Stars.
Oh this outfit was a doozie of a project! I can’t tell you how many times I was back and forth from my sewing machine to the bathroom mirror. Oh, and we don’t need to talk about the failed attempt I made at a jacket. I kept feeling like I was missing the “wow factor.” It was finally, 5 minutes after I meant to be headed out to meet up with my model, that I felt like the outfit was complete and what I had wanted it to be all along.
I took this:
2 Dollar Store t’s, 1 men’s sweatshirt from Goodwill, 1 skirt from Goodwill, 1 sweater due to go to Goodwill (plus 1 not pictured), and 1 bridesmaid two-piece-dress from Goodwill
And turned them into this:
The shirt, jacket and purse were all Anthropologie inspired: the Deuxhill Cowlneck, the Swept Swag Sweatshirt, and the Garden Accoutrement Bag (although certainly loosely interpreted).
I’ll be posting tutorials over the next week for each of these items. I’m guessing anyone who is interested will most likely be able to make the jacket and top, while the purse was pretty specific to what I found at Goodwill.
And I’m excited to announce that I made it on to Round Two of Crafting With The Stars!!! The next challenge is decoupage and I’ve already started on my project. I’m so excited about it and can’t wait to show you!
