Are you wondering when this girl’s DIY projects will end? NEVER. Because, just like yesterday’s quotes stated – Life is a DIY project! So take it literally and make something similar to what I do, or take it metaphorically and turn the table, take the matters in your own hands, become the boss of your own universe!
This is the same nightgown that I used lace from to make yesterday’s lace flower for my DIY Vintage Purse project! You can learn more about it here
Now this is not my original idea, I have stolen it from someone while surfing the blogosphere, and because I sometimes don’t pay attention who it was, I can’t give you a link to her blog, but maybe, just maybe you’ve seen something like this on the Internet before, and can leave the links to similar projects in the comments section. Just be nice, as I’ve already told you, I am not going to take full credit for this idea.
I want to apologize in advance – I forgot to take the before picture of the nightgown, yes, I was so excited to make that lace flower yesterday, that I basically ripped the bottom half off of it! Now there were some holes patched up and such, so that part was immediately cut off. And this is what I started with.
It took me about 3 episodes of Chelsea Lately to finish the hem! You will be surprised, but I had leftover lace from the flower, the part that was originally hemmed at the factory! And that was the part I needed!
This is a picture of me hemming the lace, I folded the top part, and created a lace strip, that I later attached to the bottom of the top
Just like that!
It took me some more episodes of Chelsea Lately and Sex and The City to finish off this part. I didn’t use a sewing machine, it’s all HAND SEWN!
And a close up!
It turned out a little longer than I thought, which is actually a perfect length if you want to wear it as lingerie, but a little too long for a tank top. Now you all are probably wondering “Why is this looney tune making something to wear in public, which is obviously lingerie?” Remember Madonna? And the 80’s? Yeah!
And of course my fav 80’s outfit worn by SJ Parker!
And here is what my project looks like on me!
I added my Grandma’s vintage pin to add more vintage to my vintage!
This is what the pin looks like in it’s box!
Here are some more pics that I took in my new outfit!
And then I decided to pin my yesterday’s creation to my today’s creation!
Hope you enjoyed it, show me some love, leave me a comment 🙂
