The look for less...



My version $3.75
Featuring (and I quote) a cascade of bias-cut silk chiffon rosettes, each one hand-applied, individually rumpled and gently frayed for character.
One mens t-shirt, one silk chiffon prom dress from the seventies. voila.

this post is amended to clarify
The quote is from the jcrew description on their website. My version is completely machine made.

Well done! I love how you do your look for less posts. You're brilliant. I'd like to know details on how you made those rosettes so I can copy you :)

I am mainly a "by hand" seamstress myself---and this due not to diligence but, lack of sewing machine--GORGEOUS work. I am happy to have found you and your couture blog.

Yours is cuter.

I like yours way better. It's less cluttered, I like that.

Leigh said...

Wow. It looks great!

Celeste Lux said...

I'm wading in with those that would like some instruction....this shirt is adorable for $48....but it's a must have as a re-fashion!

I've added a clarification to my post, it must have been a hard read. The quote is off of the jcrew website. My version is all machine made.
I'll post something to show how I made the roses.

Love it! There's nothing like a good knock-off!

That is so funny. I saw that shirt and thought to myself that can definitlet be made for less. I love what you did. Great job!

Actually, yours is much nicer; more ethereal.

Ooo, I just noticed the addition of bust darts. I heart bust darts.

Now we know why the 70s were so important! Fashion recycling!

Good for you that you brought it in under $5. You just saved $45! (plus shipping and handling!)
