they don't want none of them long hairs hanging around
This is my all time favorite sweater from the 1950s. The whole thing is made so beautifully, I can never get over it. It is lined with lace, has a removable fur collar, and much of the sweater was sewn by hand. Vintage clothing, my friends, is the way to go. (I can go on, and on...) I shortened this suede skirt to make the front a little shorter than the back and I love it. The vest layered over the sweater is a Calvin Klein number I found digging around at a thrift store.
OH! I tried making a version of honestlywtf.com's hex nux bracelet. I used shoelace and hex nuts. This bracelet has rarely left my wrist since I made it.
