I love how beautiful something looks which you create from scratch and sewing has always been a secret passion I have since young. So, when I recently got the chance to pimp an old outfit, I got very excited. Little jj also loves looking at me sew as she was probably so intrigued with what I was doing - picking up little beads and all.
my first pimp job... hehe. took just under a total of 6 hours
to complete it...
I pimped the pedal pusher as it is the first pre-pregnancy pair that could fit me ever (yeay!). Hehe. However, since it is a size 3, this pedal pusher wasn't really a favourite with me then, when I had so many other nicer looking size 0 or 1 outfits, because it made me look like madame doesn't have a butt *blush*
So, this madame actually wore this pair when the one and I were painting the apartment back in 2007, hence, allowing a few drops of paint to stain it permanently. As this madame is bored of her limited number of things to wear (and a little perasan that madame did lose weight), I looked into the wardrobe to find clothes I haven't worn in years to see if I could already fit in them.
Walah... apart from 1 other linen pants, this pedal pusher really made madame's figure look oh so sexy what with the much fuller butt (eheh!). But but but... I really couldn't wear it on my outings as the paint marks made madame look untastefully, well... messy. And with that, madame's creative streak came out of it's shell and was surprised that the pattern just came out naturally :D
up close and personal... a mixture of thread embroidery and
just a hint of beadwork.
Have you tried pimping any of your old clothes, just for fun?
