Silk Blouse- Self Made (Keyhole Sleeve DIY)
Necklaces- Self Made & The Dollar Store
My family members keep making fun of me for adding holes to my clothes...I remember back in Elementary school my mom used to get mad at us kids for creating holes in the knees of our jeans...I don't remember if I actually did that...but I remember my older brother doing it for sure. The silly things we do for fashion...and at such a young age!!
As you already know I made this shirt (and then used it for my Keyhole DIY a few years later)...what you may not know though is that I made it using the left-over silk after making my Wedding Dress. At the time I was quite obsessed with dyeing silk....so I went a little crazy, dyed a bunch of silk, drafted some patterns and made some clothes. This was the first of those projects...and I have to say probably my favorite. It also happens to be my hubbys least favorite. He likes to make fun of my rainbow clown shirt....
I really need to get painting some silk, I had bought all the supplies to that I could paint pretty pictures on silk (much like paiting silk scarves, but I wanted to do it for clothes)...but I have yet to try the resists (drawing a picture, going over the lines with a dye "resist" and then painting the dye between the lines, it gives it a stained glass picture look).
