Wahoo!!! I made it. I set the goal to sew along with each week and I did it! Signature looks week was both the hardest and the easiest for me. It took me some time to think about what would be a signature look for me, it was a challenge.
The start of this outfit came from a Run DMC shirt that I found at a garage sale for 25 cents. It was a little grungy and went through the wash about 3 times before I would even touch it to cut apart. I decided to make a peasent top tunic with the shirt.
Gravitating back to my signature style which involves a lot of layering and mix and match pieces, I still wasn't happy.
Next I found a sweatshirt in my stash that was a size 10/12, clearly too big for my size 4/5 daughter. I decided that I wanted to turn it into a dress. I cut down the sleeves and slimmed down the sweater to make it fit better.
I tried it on with the black leggings and it just wasn't interesting enough. So I made another pair of leggings using the sleeves of a long sleeve red t-shirt.
I wanted to try something different, so I took my sharpie and started to draw designs onto the legs. On one leg I drew pictures of boomboxes, headphones, microphones, sunglasses, cassette tapes, and turn tables. I loved the look but knew it would be too busy on both legs, so on the second leg I drew stars and collections of dots.
