New Belt

March 9, 2010 at 8:22 am 1 comment

Piper Ann got this adorable cashmere dress when she was born. I knew I’d keep it as an heirloom piece until I took it out of storage to look for some other things.

My laundry skills are extremely lacking as you can see in these photos. The puke actually ate holes in the dress. : (

I love the detail on the trim!

I have a feeling I didn’t actually wash this by the stains on the front. They could have oxidized over time?? If they were’nt there, I probably would have just cut off the sleeves, added a ruffled trim, and made it into a jumper.

Instead I cut up the whole thing and made flowers out of the cashmere, GASP, I know!

I’ve been seeing these belts all over the blogosphere and decided to make one for myself.

(not the greatest picture, I know, but I had to take it myself in the mirror.)

I’m currently working on a large project for my friend’s mom. When I’m done with that I’m hoping to make a few of these for my shop (which is currently empty), but stay tuned.
