Ashley_adkins_for_local_honey_6_2__large

Description

This is the third in my 8 piece fall line, made especially for Local Honey over the last month. The original version was a giant blouse; which I simply turned backwards, gathered the neckline, kept the button-up side to the back, and created a wild version of shoulder pads. These were made piece by piece, simply by tracing a small semicircular bit of cardstock and cutting out about 40 little shapes. I sewed them up, pressed them out, serged the ends, and handstitched them together, and voila! They were very time consuming, but very rewarding to see people go nuts over.

    I love this, and I bet people went “nuts” over it! All of your projects with the mermaid scales are lovely. [As are the yellow shoes in the picture!!!]
