I had some suspicion that the multiple layers of glue I used on one of the boots last time would be counter-productive - and it was. The glitter cracked and peeled off in big chunks. (I wonder if all those people out there that glitter-glued their shoes did any follow-up posts about what actually happened when they wore them, or if they wore them?)
Anyway, I ended up re-glittering that boot with one layer of glue & big glitter. This time I used fabric mod podge rather than fabric glue. We'll see. I think Revision #4, if it comes to that, will be covering them with fabric.

Just check out these white transparent capris compared to the black ones I made (in previous post). Interesting. Do you think it's a cultural thing?

I flat-felled the side seams because of the potential for raveling, but more for the look, and added some tucks going horizontally around knee length.
Still wondering if I might want to add another couple inches to the bottom...guess I'll wait and see.

Had some calico in a coral shade I used for side inserts and under sleeve gussets. Didn't care for the hem - it was a little puckery in places - so I ripped it out and then added some 2-inch wide pale peach lace to finish it off. Can't get much more girly than that - pink and peach, calico and lace. mmmm...mmmm...mmmm.
