i am having difficulty upon deciding whether to put this on etsy or not. this is one, labour of love, also an artform, has been shelved for oh so many months, because i am looking for the perfect element that i can infuse for the closure on the cards and fold bills section. and then the other day--bingo! i found it. a small belt with antique finish buckle minus the hole, its ok--still serves it purpose perfectly because the fabric--a mixture of cotton and mostly synthetic i think, never glides and slides, it stays permanently where you want it.
materials. its from a leather skirt. made in italy. so u know what we're having here. its waistline --22 inches! i conclude its vintage. are you kidding?in this world of cokes, custards, pringles, saturated fats,trans fat,yeah right(as if i know it at all)--where can you ever find that woman with such waistline. oh well maybe in--siberia? alaska. a woman hostaged and is never given food. bulimic, anorexic.
anyhooo--i am going to recreate it...
i have taken out the pocket--the leather is soooo smooth and durable--labour of love it is--because i keep pricking my hands till it swelled and bled while i sew and piece together the portion at the back for money-fold bills and credit cards, and attached it on the original pocket--now turned into coin purse section, althroughout. man, the zipper is an industrial type one--glides smooth.. .
all hand stitches that i did here, are sewn twice over. compartments are all lined. satin quilted cloth and appliqued with brown lace.the colours--divine.subdued.ha. whatelse, and if i change my mind, it will be for sale on etsy
