Y’all continue to sit patiently for some Burning Man photos. Just sit. Patiently.
In the meantime, here are two new pieces that I made last month. I wore them separately on the playa, but paired them into a swim suit for a trip to Laguna Beach last weekend.
Blake Gardner took this shots for me while my husband and our friend were scuba diving. I’m not sure why the waistband was all floppy right here. It stayed tight at Burning Man, and once I waded into the ocean it shrunk and didn’t stretch out again. That rhinestone button is actually Jason’s, but I thought he wouldn’t mind. So far there haven’t been any complaints.
I love how the diagonal stripes are radiating out from my waist. I designed the two pieces weeks apart, without consideration of each other, so that is a happy accident.
All the materials were scraps from my sewing cabinet, except for the lining on the shorts, which I bought to line my booty shorts. The patterns are my own, and I improvised the elaborations. At this point, I have this bikini, and top, leggings, and genie pants out of this same blue and green striped jersey. Am I missing anything?
OK, well, also check me out on Business Insider! Cause, you know, I’m a business-lady.
