Home made outfits

Net underskirt, OBI belt, flower brooch and lariat necklace.

It’s time to put some of the things I have made together on my model. Starting from the bottom of the picture.

First is a net underskirt. It’s so dead easy to make. Whether you make a regular skirt or a net petticoat like this, the method is the same. I am going to show some of the regular skirts I have made in future posts. Meanwhile here is a link to the instructions for the net underskirt – how to make a net petticoat.

Next my model is wearing a flower brooch. I make them out of fabric scraps. Find out more about how to make them in this post – easy flower brooch.

The OBI belt is one of my favorite items to make and wear. I have got them in loads of colours. I wear them with a jacket, a cardigan, a dress or a top like in the picture. See here for the instructions – how to make an obi belt.

My model is also wearing a mint green waxed cotton lariat necklace with African silver beads at each end. Follow this link to find out how to make them – how to make a lariat necklace.

And finally the medal necklace and the OBI belt are shown and mentioned in this older post – OBI belt and medal necklace.

Only the skirt and the top that were bought new. Hey five out of seven items were home-made? That’s not too bad. If you ask me.

More next week.
