Hiatus much... no excuses. Haha.
Anyway here's a shirt and matching bowtie I made for a childhood friend of mines wedding this past summer. The fabric was super inexpensive from from my neighborhood fabric store. I hand-stitched the contrasting blue and orange tuxedo ruffles which are made from china silk bias on the bus ride home.
And just for kicks I used contrasting blue and orange buttons in an alternating pattern.
