I have had a leather jacket for a while I have wanted to salvage and make something out of… I got the idea to do a bustier top and a ful 50’s styled skirt… I need a new petticoat… this is just somthing I threw together but I needtulle and lots of it I think to make a new one for lots of fullness… the skirt was made out of 3 full yards in length so I am sure it will fill out nicely and be cute… I have camera issues it would seem… if I don’t use the flash, it turns out fuzzy, if I do- everything looks rediculously shiny… the skirt is actually a very matte gauzy material over a grey cotton shirt material… there is no shine to it
leather… gauze… cotton
