For the base I used a stiff flyscreen kind of material that I got for about 10 cents from reverse garbage in west end. It is such a fantastic place to pick up odds and ends but whenever I go in I just seem to lack creativity.
The frills are made from black and silver/grey ribbon hand sewn directly on to the fly screen. I’m sure there would be a better way to make frills but I have a serious lack of sewing expertise. The studs came from studsandspikes.com and I’ve been looking for a way to use them for ages.
Worn on a black plain singlet (cotton on) to a festival a few months back, and got plenty of compliments (even one from thecobrasnake himself).
Ended up loving the final product but I feel a bit limited for ways to wear them without looking the same every time. Looking forward to winter so I can pin them on blazers for a different look. Any other suggestions?
Next project: shoulder embellishments in cream/white… Now just to find the time.
