Too Much To Dream Ensemble

on MeMadeMay'18, Day #18


~ actually it's todays workout wear ~
 Maybe with a 60s sort of vibe?


~ or camo? ~


Well, the jacket is from Tina Givens Gypsy Jacket pattern, modified and made in linen.  The camisole is self-drafted, made from organza.  And the pants are self-drafted as well, made in cotton.  I have never worn these things together before.  Will I again? 



~ I'll have to think about it ~


The shoes are not from ebay, but old ones of mine that were originally black.  I painted them with some heavy metal paints that go verdigris with applications of this and that.  They are also ready to retire, but I luv them so...

  2. I would love to make some sheer tops like that to wear over/under things. I imagine that organza is a bugger to work with though.

    1. It's not that bad. It's just that it ravels so French seams are necessary. But if you just do a practice run you'd be fine. I left the bottom ruffle to fray.

    1. I know, lost in my backyard. These are your kind of bell bottoms, sorta, Vix.

  5. Mmm, I love all these greenery prints together with the dappled shade of organza. I tend to retire shoes only when they're no longer comfy, too. If they still feel ok, maybe a new lick of paint would spruce them up enough?

    1. The shoes are cracking, a lot. And over-painting will just make it worse, I'm afraid. But then again, the paint job is so marbled, it's hard to see it right off. They are comfortable...
