The fabric is rust bling georgette and I’ve used ties on the sleeve to reflect the straps on the sandals and kept the peplum to it’s original length using Vogue 8815.
This reddish top has a red gold tinge to it and I will pair this with my Lily skirt or jeans.
This top is paired with my pleather jacket McCalls 6292 and Jalie jeans 2908.
The last version using New Look 6977 is blinge-full using a remnant $10 of what was $50/m.
The beauty of this fabric is the bling is sewn on mesh backing in swirls. This meant I could cut into the fabric with paper scissors (and not blunting my fabric scissors) and use a simple straight stitch to construct this top. No hand stitching took place.
Either way, these three pieces were inspired by the shoes and didn’t break my budget.

I’ll be sewing LN’s white faux fur coat for her birthday while I get these post to you.
I told Mr V how much you all enjoyed his hoodie and he blushed in appreciation. TJ, he is very professor-like with a rugby edge. Your cookie-fest meet up sounds like fun.
The family loved the Easter baking (flaounes) a lot.
Thanks BeaJay for the nomination.
Hope to see some of you on 18th May in Sydney too.
