I have a thing for flowers lately, and this top was looking kinda boring so...I gave it a touch of color by adding these red yo-yo's and a new red waistband
this was the original blouse and the skirt I cut up for the waistband and yo-yo' s (both thrift shop finds:) )
the original blouse
after I removed the black lace
I cut out the waistband (you can only see half of it here)
I folded it in half and added two yo-yo's to the side
I pinned the waistband to the bottom of the blouse before sewing it on, in such a manner that no frayed edges were left
left an opening on the inside to introduce the elastic
then basically just made a bunch of yo-yo's - you can find a tutorial for making yo -yo's here
and voila: the finished blouse!
Love it? Hate it?
