I used this fabric I got from Philly last year which I also made a wrap skirt and a wrap top out of.
This is such a good fitting pattern for me .
I admit I have some UFO's... in waiting I have 3 purses, one vest and this....
it there any wonder why this is a UFO.... I've been working on it on and off for almost a year now.. its a completely hand beaded belt for a belly dance costume. The front of the belt is done and I'm starting the back belt now..... its beaded on an antique brocade.. I'm beading along the original pattern of the brocade. I'm thinking this will be a show stopper when it is done... I also used some huge swarvoski crystals on this beauty.
Hopefully.... I will have time to make this before New Years... but I doubt it.... I think this corduroy will be awesome made up in the long coat pictured here.... lined in red! This is from my mom's stash... Thanks Mom!!!
Here's a work in progress... also I have high hopes this will be done by New Years... but probably won't.... You see I have this beautiful light weight blue and black corduroy (another from Mom!)
I have cut the black corduroy on one inch strips and placed them 3 inches apart on the blue. Now I have to sew them down the middle of each strip... then I want to do a decorative silver cover stitch down the middle of each strip... then wash it and let the ends fringe. Then cut out and make up the cute bolero I have picked out !!! Yeah... its not going to be done by New Years... but its going to be so cool when I get it done! I actually saw fabric done like this in Nashville... it was $54 a yard!!!!!
