The making of an outfit....

I thought it would be fun to show you a little at what goes on behind the scenes when I design one of my sets. Of course there is so much more work involved but these are just a few of my basic steps :)

First, picking out my main fabrics! Always my favorite part!!! haa haa! I decided that these would give a cool, hip, punk, rocker style for what I had in mind.

Now, which applique fabrics to use?? Decisions...decisions!

After all of the appliques are cut out and put in place..time to stitch them out. The letters are always my least favorite to cut out and to sew in place. It is so time consuming! But it sure makes a cute touch to any outfit.

Fraying is a fun addition to outfits but also takes time. By the time I get done with all of mine...I feel like I have carpal tunnel syndrome, lol!

Piecing denims together and the whole distressing process is FUN! I love the creativity of this part! No two sets are ever alike!

Here is the final design after I've antique dyed it! I love how it turned out! Probably my favorite set ever!! :) Of course I added a lot more bells and whistles!
