When I saw Christina’s piece, it brought me back to days when I used to have ballet class multiple times a week. You’ll see what I mean after the jump!
I’ve loved your blog since I was introduced to it through Yahoo, and have been a faithful follower since that fateful and glorious day. I’ve redone a lot of things, but never usually got good before pictures, until I finally figured out the best place to balance my camera (namely, on the flower box on our porch)! Here’s my first properly documented project for you – I got this sweater from Goodwill for a couple of bucks, and I loved its cozy, baggy, sparkly essence, but wanted to jazz it up a bit.
Time to see “All That Jazz” brought to the table by Christina! (Yeah, yeah, I can’t avoid a good Chicago tie in.)
I wasn’t overly fond of the deep v-neck, and I put it on backwards once by accident, and fell in love. From there, it was just a few hours of sewing on ribbons, which I did by hand…
…a little bit of tucking in places, and tada! I love the feeling of it, very much like a cover-up for ballet practice or something.
Thanks for the inspiration, Marisa! You’re fabulous.”
You’re fabulous Christina!! I have to say I always had the knit cover-ups that I wore in class to stay warm, and this would have been something I would have coveted. It’s totally dance-apropos and reminds me of lacing up my point shoes with ribbon around the ankles!
I’m so glad you shared this with us, Christina! I also love how you’re in fifth position in the last photo too!! Can’t wait to see the next piece, now that you’ve got a clutch spot for your camera!
