|Hard to get a good pic showing the detail since it is all black, sorry.|
|A close up of the belt and flower detail.|
I know I know, way to much information, OK lets get back to business. After cutting off the amount I wanted from the top of shirt, I sewed the edges all over. Then using some stretchy sequined black ribbon, I attached a belt to the top, to give it some shape. I also took the scraps from the top and made a flower, as I did in an earlier post on my up cycled purse (as seen on me above). I attached the flower on to the belt, sewing it by hand, with a button in the center. Looking back, I wish I had not attached the belt, since I would like to wear it with other things. So I would recommend, after measuring out the amount you want for your belt, sewing the ends together with your sewing machine. Then attach the flower to the seem of the belt. I added a strap of stretchy sequins to the back of shirt as well. BTW do you like my necklace? That is another up cycle project from leftover pieces of my up cycled sweatshirt. I will share more of that in a later post very soon.
