Just to let you know, I am not soooo on task. It stopped snowing/raining, so I didn't make the slicker, but it was cold. I had some leftover stretch suede from a crazy vest I had just made and I made suede Gloves instead, because my hands were cold and I didn't have any gloves. It has been cold at work, so I decided I didn't want cold hands all day. Anyway, that is my excuse for changing projects at hand....
After being worn all day, cutting material... LOL
They match my suede sherpa coat, which I wore part of the day too... and the right hand I cut without the middle fingers so I could cut well and the rest of my hand be warm... Great for driving control too LOL. I used a satin zigzag stitch so they could be close fitting and move with me...
This took 2 5/8 yards for each side so it would be reversible= at 2.97 a yard.... 7.80 for each side of this cape... essentially 2 raincapes for 15.60..... Couldn't get that in the store... or could you?
This same dress with different Jackets and without the scarves is so different.
I still have to make some scarves, earrings are already made..
and .... a little Glitz
This was a quick scarf... as I made jacket right before work, but scarves can be of the same material or alternate with silks and contrasting colors.
I bought the material for both of the jackets at the same time I bought the dress fabric. All from the 'Treasure Hunt Room'.
alternating the black and pink scarves on the jackets in layers make a big difference to me between a custom outfit and just ordinary. The accessories can bring all of it together, just like decorating a room or a house.
