just finished it! i was kind of in a hurry to reconstruct this, because i wanted to go to another show of them today in antwerp & wear it. it would look so lovely with my smarmy scrap skirt. but i’m not going after all & now it’ll probably just sit in my closet for a while. anyhow, i really like how this turned out :] i wanted to make a dress at first, but i didn’t have enough fabric for anything good. so i made this! i haven’t made a top like this in a long time. i learned to make that contour bust part at what the craft.


it’s kind of inspired by wearydrearies, maybe you can tell. if you disregard the bright colours & overall polished look :p


in case you were wondering, i did not make that flower, only added the heart button to it. it came with a necklace i bought & i didn’t really use it & thought it would look much better on this.

thanks for looking! feel free to comment! i’ve noticed an alarming decrease in comments the past week or two.

    Again another showing of the excellent talent you have…only thing I do is reconstruct the neck collars in t-shirts into a v-neck…but in either case this is awesome.

    I just saw this on the Evelyn Evelyn website. It looks truly amazing! It makes me wish I actually knew how to make/modify my clothes.

    By the way, did you happen to be at the Evelyn Evelyn gig in Amsterdam (wearing a yellow dress)? You look really familiar in your photo.

    Anyways, you did an awesome job on the shirt! 🙂

      thank you! & you can always learn it :]

      a yellow dress like this? yeah, that was me. that’s where i bought that t-shirt! it was an amazing show, wasn’t it?

      • Lucresa says:

        That’s true 😉

        Yep, that’s the one. I got there quite a while before doors opened, when there were only like 8 people there, so you and your outfit really stood out 🙂
        Yes, the show was amazing! Did you get to meet Amanda and Jason afterwards?

      • maraleopard says:

        oh, okay :p then i probably saw you too! it was so empty out there for so long.
        yes, i did meet them :] they’re awesome. did you?

    This a a beautiful, wearable piece of art. I don’t suppose you make these to sell do you? or that you make custom pieces? If you do, email me: kals2@kent.ac.uk

    • maraleopard says:

      thank you :]
      no, i don’t make this exact design to sell. but i do make custom pieces! & i can make you something like it if you want to. i’ll just e-mail you about it in case you don’t read this.
