Show and Share Sunday

Hi Everyone!

     I want to announce to the world - I have fallen in LOVE! My new love is simultaneously strong and delicate, economical, lusciously soft and incredibly sexy. My new love used to be this:


This awesomely 90's-licious dress fit me and actually looked good! In a 90's way.....


   The very clever and smart designer of this dress made the back of it stretchy. It helps to zip it up but since I won't be wearing this dress, the elastic back became:

.....wait for it.


FLORAL WRISTCUFFS!

     I made them thick this time. I think that the masculine size of the cuffs blended with the soft femininity of the velvet makes these so sexy.

After cutting my piece to size I applied Fray Check so that this won't leave velvety lint all over everything.

I rocked a running stitch through the bottom of the folded fabric. I then pulled tight to ruffle the fabric.

I wrapped the ruffled fabric into rosettes and stitched into place.
I added some plastic "pearl" beads into the middle of the flowers. Isn't this a sexy cuff??

I know what you mean about nineties fashion. The dress does look as though it was gorgeous then! And what a cool reminder of your crazy days!
