Flora must be feeling frisky. Here she is, doing her best disco moves. The sparkly disco ball seems to have shed all over her shirt.
Another JStern t-shirt, this time trying out something I read about, which caught my fancy. The initial inspiration was a young woman with colorful tattoos, who was wearing a lace shrug – the tattoos peeking through. Then I read how Ann Steeves, over at Gorgeous Fabrics imitated this with mesh overlaid on a print. Much less painful than tattoos!
In keeping with the deconstructed / tattoo look, I opted to leave the hem edge raw, and do a quasi-raw edge finish on the sleeves and neckline. This gives just a peek of what the printed fabric looks like when it’s not hiding behind the disco curtain. Everything made on the serger or cover stitch.
I think I’ll probably get one Fall / Winter’s wear out of this. The mesh is not the best of quality. The sequins have already started to catch on the mesh, and if separated too quickly leave tiny little snags. Over time, I am sure there will be more. But, for now, I’m calling it a successful experiment!
