heavenly waist

this wrap belt/skirt, named “heaven” after the annie lennox song that spun around my head while making it, is awaiting its roxie girl before it receives its hidden golden closures. hence my hand holds it closed for pics :)

it is cut to hug you & drape beautifully over your hips.

the jersey dress is a first try from a pattern i’m still working out….

Material Notes

leather remnants purchased & upcycled in a steely navy blue. the orange contrast piece is detailed with leather cording.

    To be honest, I didn’t like this belt at all. But I browsed her Etsy shop and saw some seriously great stuff: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_2&listing_id=35218996 Why haven’t they featured this? Or http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=35216888?

      thanks barbara for your honesty & compliments… you know what? i looooooove this belt in person, but was afraid the pics didn’t do it justice. i’m glad you said something, maybe i need to reshoot this one.

      thanks for visiting my shop and linking my other belts! there are more coming soon :)
