Question: Is anyone really going to wear a partially see-through top?

Answer: I guess we have to wait and see.

This one’s nearly done, so it should debut at etsy in a day or two. It’ll be interesting to see the reaction. This fabric is so sheer it’s almost invisible. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t mind having the whole  world seeing their “bidness.” But that’s the beauty part of living in LA — there are people here who have built entire careers on letting it all hang out, as we used to say.

I bought the little shell top at an estate sale, and am adding the beaded flower fabric. This particular combination seemed to work best, out of the eighteen or so different possibilities I tried. Seriously! Upcycling isn’t as easy as it looks. Or maybe I’m  doing it wrong. But who cares? When you finally get all the elements in place it’s so gratifying that all those “Ewwww, that’s not working” steps along the way are forgotten. Sort of.

    Thank you!! Check back in a week or so. I’m working on some t-shirt reconstructions designed for the “two babies later” problem. Just in case you don’t find your old tummy, that is 😉
