My first attempt at designing something with jersey! Deconstructed a small woman's regular tee, added some metal chain/jersey braided shoulderstaps and tassels. Kind of reminds me of those t-shirts that were slashed fringe embelished with colored pony beads from the eighties. I think mine had a persian kitten with a rose with a bit of silver sparkle...oh how I loved that t-shirt! I used to love taking apart vintage finds and 'modernizing' them back in highschool. Haven't done that in a while, felt pretty good! Who knows, maybe I'll make myself a few new summer tunics while I still remember how!
So here's the deets on the event I created my Rockin' Tunic for. If you want to support a good cause, and get yourself a cool one of a kind wearable piece of art, then head on down to Favourite Gifts and put in your bid!
July 4 - July 11
Local designers and artists will be given both a ladies and a mens t-shirt as a blank canvas in which to create something fab. The tees will then be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to the North Shore Women's Centre
Opening Party July 4th

Silent auction held until July 11 at Favorite Gifts in the Lonsdale Quay
Please come down and bid on these wearable pieces of art!!!!
