Winter is not far away, so I've started thinking and preparing for the winter wardrobe. Over the past few months, I've found the above collection of various tops, jumpers and pants from my visits to op shops. All are in good condition (two even still had the tags on them!), no stains, and all are plain boring items, crying out for some embellishments. Actually a couple have ridiculous decorations (a pink poodle with the words underneath - born to shop!?), but these will quickly disappear.
So over the next few months, I have a bit of work to do. The embellishments I was thinking of were
- reverse applique for the pink poodle (that way I get the pleasure of cutting him out completely!)
- patchwork patches for another
- more screen printing with contact
- frills for the bell bottom pants
Plus I have a couple of pants and skirts I plan to make up, so I will have to add embellishments to match.
I know its only the middle of summer still, but thoughts are already heading towards the next season. Nothing like being prepared I say!
