Dumont, New Jers...
We are waiting for yet ANOTHER snow storm in New Jersey. It makes the spring seem even further than before so I decided to make my own sunshine.
Starting with an oversized sweat shirt, I trimmed it to fit me better. That gave me the material for my beret! Growing up in Russia, we learned not to waste anything so I don’t throw out trimmings in a project. I look for a nice way to use the small pieces. It is not only frugal but challenging and fun.
I combined the fleece from the sweatshirt with a piece of print material to make a decorative emblem. A short piece of lace trim makes a pretty frame and collar accent.
A wedge of the same print material makes a nice counterpoint in the beret and makes a nice place for the bee to visit, Ribbon embroidery adds a great dimension for decorating any casual or funky garment.
The Cotton fleece sweatshirt is standard. The applied material can be anything washable. I have enhanced it using cotton yarn and organza ribbon. All are washable so there is no trouble turning it inside out and tossing it in the washer.
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
