As promised, I have pictures of my new blouse. The added waist ties definitely help prevent the blouse from poofing up too much over skirts. I am really happy with how it turned out. Is it perfect? Does it look like brand? Gosh no, but I think it is great for my first blouse. I learned a lot during the whole process and that’s what counts. In addition, the pictures show a little preview of the skirt I made. Please tell me what you think.
|Here's the blouse without waist ties. For some reason my flash wasn't cooperating at this time.|
|And here it is with the waist ties. You can't see them as they are below the skirt, but they do bring in the excess bulk.|
As a bonus, here are the shoes I painted for my Danny Fenton costume. I was originally going to buy a pair of red converse. However, I didn't want to spend $45 on shoes that make my feet look like a pair of skies. Therefore, I bought a pair of $8 white sneakers from Kmart. I used the same red-pink glitter paint I used for the shirt. Masking tape was used for the white toes. Since the toes are just plain canvas, I used some Scotch Guard as well to try and prevent them from getting too dirty.
