Where I'm at in my craftiness



On top is the beginnings of my bra for the Flash Mob dance. As you can see, mostly purchased flowers, some handmade. However, I have assembled the less complex ready made flowers into more intricate shapes. So, definitely some crafting going on here. As you can see, I did not put any large flowers centrally. That, in my opinion, is a design disaster unless you are going for humor. I am sticking with cool shades of yellow, red (pink), green and blue green. I like the way these colors seem happy! Still. lots of gaps so much more flower gluing ahead. And, yes, fellow Craft Wars fans I am trying to not incur the wrath of Jo Pearson and am avoiding glue strings!
The second photo is a scan of page 86 of Vogue magazine January 20132. A really fun issue, I encourage you to buy it or check it out at the library. This is the skirt I like. I have that exact lace featured at the skirt top but do not think it will work on someone larger than a size 2. I think I'll modify some applique to use on my version. I did not attempt to make or buy the top. I got this one http://shop.nordstrom.com/sr?keyword=Classiques+Entier%C2%AE+Lace+Trim+Ponte+Peplum+Top+IVORY+X-Large&origin=keywordsearch&contextualcategoryid=0 at Nordstrom's and think it will look good. Hope my skirt alterations are successful. It's fun to figure this out. 
Well, back to crafting!
