apparently i love bows. i painted one on Tuesday
and i made a bow shirt HERE
but i love big bows i cannot lie.
i always make something for my kids for their birthdays…and my daughter had these cute pink shorts that i really wanted a top for…so i made one…
using levi fabric that was reallllly light and airy.
here’s the only “tutorial shot” i took. i’m a lame blogger. fire me.
the long piece is the strap–the small rectangle got made into a bow…
and the large two pieces are the front and back. i folded down the tops and sewed leaving a “tunnel” and then i added the strap through….(after sewing the sides together)
it’s verrrry similar to the pillowcase dress
i made it too tight…cause i never measure…so i cut it up the middle and added a strip of levi. but i flipped it cause i love the contrast of dark and light.
and then i decided to add a portion along the bottom.
just for kicks.
i didn’t even hem it. i scalloped it and let it be.
and the bow is stitched on. purely decoration.
I love the look of this top. I’m thinking I can do this with too faded or out of style jeans and cut out panels…hmmm. Something to think about.
