Wardrobe Wedbesday and Make My Week # 3

Nin’s theme for January is ‘Putting the New in your Year’ and one of my goals for 2012 is to make a new garment of clothing each month.

This is my January clothing make. When I went through my sewing room I re-discovered this remnant I had purchased on a whim at Fabric Vision last year.

With an easy afternoon’s work I whipped up this wee dress from a top pattern. Because the fabric is sequined and therefore scratchy I bound the arms and back facing.

I was pleased with the results. The actual fabric is also totally transparent so you can alter the look by choosing to wear black or white (or another colour) slips underneath. This is it with black.

I got called both a fish and a snake by people who hugged me while I was wearing it!

Hopefully joining in with Our Creative Spaces and Wardrobe Wednesday
