Sheer Wrap/Sheer Fun

I was experimenting with white sheer fabric and began thinking about how I might apply paint to it and came up with this wrap. I used metallic paint which doesn’t show up metallic looking on this fabric. Instead it just gives it a slight glimmer when the fabric moves. I love it when the materials dictate the outcome of the project and surprise you! This wrap is the perfect accessory for a plain white summer dress hanging in my closet. I chose the turquoise and brown colors only because they are so popular right now and never dreamed I would like it as much as I do. As usual, now I want to make more!

      Thanks MILKYWAY! It is delicate. The fabric is very sheer and lightweight. Hardly feels like you have it on.
