Tee Time

Hi All, 

I thought I’d share a quick refashion I did this week. I bought an XL t shirt from H&M and decided to hack at it.

I did like wearing this baggy but I wanted to attempt a t shirt refashion as I haven’t done one for years now.

Here it is paired with matching khaki coloured block heels (picked out by a friend, from New Look). The lace was picked up quickly to use as a belt, it was left over after attaching some to the hem.

This is how it looks without a belt in case you were wondering.

This can be worn different ways, with leggings, over the knee socks or jeans

I’ll throw in some random pics from the “photo shoot”

Happy Saturday y’all!

Sassy in Stripes

Hi All,

Some how, in between sewing for my client, I’ve managed to whip up something from the left over material from one dress.

It is basically a straight tube when laid flat like so: 

This has four holes in it, two for the arms to go through, one for your head and another for your torso… just thought I should explain that

I had a few ideas for these pieces before sewingg them, such as centre pieces for bodycon dresses. I sew a LOT of dress so I decided on this crop top!

This is an outfit I’d actually go out in… but where? The chip shop thats where! Do I really need an excuse?

Hat: H&M, Top: MontanaDesigns, Trousers: Forever 21

In these next photos I’m wearing them with black pleated trousers

Trousers: H&M in Prague

Here I flipped the top upside down so it’s more flowy at the top, I would attach straps and thread a string throughout the hem to create gathers

You could wear this with a bra or bikini top as an extra feature or support, there are many ways this can be worn.

I’ll be selling this one but I’ll be making another for myself as I like this so much!

Now it’s back to it

Wrapped In Silver

Posted in Dresses, Sewing with tags , , , , , , on June 5, 2017 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All, 

My collection is on hold while I’m sewing (FIVE) dresses for a client, don’t worry she’s great and I’m more than happy to sew for her. I was working on the first one for most of today, she’s so happy with it she’s been paying me in cake and ice cream.

Before this I made myself a wrap dress using yet another tutorial I found on Pinterest. It’s for a black/silver/gold themed family birthday party. I couldnt be bothered to search for something to buy so I used this as an excuse to buy more fabric.

I’ve been meaning to make a wrap dress for a while, especially using this tutorial as it looked straight forward. I was right!

Now to show you my working out and my final answer:

These were posted on my Snapchat, I like to show what I’m making on there, amongst the goofery (montanastrange).


I added gold lace pieces along the neckline because I wanted it to look classy and dressy. 

I’m happy with the results and it fits really well, I’ve bought the same fabric in red and purple to make more (I’ll be making a wrap top in the purple fabric).

I’m looking forward to wearing it, I’ll try to updated this post with me out in it.

Happy Crafting,

Montana
