This is a camisole and skirt from the Alabama Stiches book. It is made out of black T-shirt material (100% cotton) and hand sewn with button hole thread. The reverse applique pattern was hand drawn with soap onto the fabric. Then I used a reverse applique technique on the leaves and stem of the poison ivy. I then beaded the bottom of the entire skirt, which unfortunately doesn’t show up in the photograph.
