Strappy Mesh-Insert Version of My Dance Top
What's hilarious is that the revealing is so subtle that some don't even notice, whereas others forget I have eyes or even glasses. Bwa ha ha. I LOVE Power Mesh now. Power Mesh is a lighter weight support than Power Net. So, in this top, I'm basically held in place just like wearing a sports bra. I have the look of a low cut top, but ain't nothin goin anywhere. I wondered if my girls would settle toward the center a little, but I'm set quite wide apart at the bridge and since they're all natural, they love to hang out in my armpits anyway. So that's working in my favor on this top!
My friend Elise saw me wear this at a dance congress and teased me, "Oh girl, put those away!" Ha ha ha! I think my dance partners must spend part of their time dancing with me wondering and waiting for the move which will cause a wardrobe malfunction.
I have more I'd like to play around with this styling. Until then, it's a great black top to add to my wardrobe so that all my wild pants can stand out.
The Goddess Nike Halloween Salsa Dancing Costume
I hand drafted and drew this chest icon in the idea that Nike was not only able to manifest her wings from the design stored on her chest (think carebears) but also she could manifest a cup of flames to give to the victorious upon arrival at the battlefield or at the finish line. before this, I'd never done any applique on knits and basically taught myself along the way with a small amount of pointers from one of the forums I use. I love applique so much now that I'm thinking of ways I can use it on other things. SUPER exciting! I think that was my favorite part.

Create Kids Couture Viveca Top
I thought I'd give a couple patterns a try. First up, I made the Viveca Top. I like it alright. It's not as flattering as I thought it would be. But it's something different to wear to class and it goes with the Jalie Sports Bra, Bootstrap Leggings and Kwik Sew skirt I made so that's something fun!
I did go down a size and I curved in the waist more than the pattern. However, it's REALLY long compared to my torso. So I end up with a large wad of fabric at the belly. If you're long and rectangular, this can be fun. If you're curvy and short waisted like me, maybe not so much. Or try shortening it.
