Oh, yes. A fused lace tie. It’s not the best of fused lace for a pattern of my liking. I’ve hardly ever spent any money on fused lace, not deeming they were worth the price I can get them at, so this was all I had. However, it works to make a point. The tie isn’t super smooth as a real silk tie, cut on the bias, but it will work just fine. It’s less delicate, fancier, more interesting and can be washed and ironed. Forget that other stuff you pay so much for so little. Get creative!
I made this coat 4 years ago, with details in this post. As awesome as it was with the built in sword holders in the back, it’s taken me a while to get some photos of myself in it. Better late than never!
These are some fun pictures I recently got taken of me in some rather unconventional looking, and engineered tennis shorts I made almost a few years back, with posts writing about them linked in the headers except for the Warhol shorts, which are new to this blog.
I’ve been working on a new look for work because the dress shirts I had been making to this point were of fabric that was just too tedious to iron all the time. I was going to save time making a new wardrobe instead of ironing all the old stuff all the time! Finally have my new look close enough to what I want to start mass producing similar versions. I work for the government so I need something with not a lot of razzle and dazzle, and something that looked professional even though it wasn’t going to be the conventional tucked in shirt and dress pants look. This was what I came up with.
I finally have some decent pictures of myself in some garments I’ve designed and made for myself so I’m going to start posting them. This one is of a full Transformers outfit I made from curtains at Wal-mart over 2 years ago. You can read about it on the original post. I’ll just share some pics of me in it here and now.
