And we are stoked!!!!
Here it is! My final project for SYTYCS!I can’t believe I made it to the finals! Thank you thank you thank you to everyone that has voted for me. This week’s theme is contestant’s choice. Ooooh yeah. My entry for the competition was my dress made from a car, so I HAD to do another trashion dress as my finale.
I choose toilet paper.

This is what toilet paper looks like after it’s dyed. It gets hard, falls off the cardboard tube, and then you have to carefully peel it apart. After this process, the sewing could begin. I had a long weekend. Haha! {If anyone was wondering, this dress is 100% sewn. No glue or tape was harmed in the making of this dress.}

And a huge thanks to this little pocket-sized model, Michelle. Or Chelly Belly as I like to call her. {That’s right baby sis. I called you Chelly Belly on the internets. You are beautiful.}

I’m in the So You Think You Can Sew finals!!!!
Thank you to everyone that voted last week. I made it to the finals by one vote.

This is my entry for this week’s So You Think You Can Sew. The theme is apparel and I wanted to try something I’ve had swirling around in my little brain for a while. A ruffled vest. To make it, I used and old bed sheet. The fabric was super soft, which made for some great draping of the ruffles. The ruffles are made out of about two hundred circles. I watched a lot of Nexflix with a pair of fabric shears while I was making this. The silhouette of the vest remind me of the fur vests everyone is wearing right now, and I kinda like it.
Oh, and the hat? My husband’s. He found it in the Cayman Islands. I think my love of fashion is rubbing off on him. But don’t tell him I said so.

You guys, I have come to the conclusion that guys clothes are more comfy than girls. Shocking news eh? I know you all come here for the latest fashion headlines. Since my discovery, I have stolen Mason’s pants, shirts and now I’m on to stealing socks. And most the time I don’t ask. What have I become? Guys clothes have changed me.
