DIY Vogue Fashion

I totally flipped when I saw the latest Teen Vogue magazine that I picked up at Barnes & Noble yesterday. There was a crafty article in there that reminded me of this cute fashion project I did a few years ago.

Is this not sweet? The cute model chicky is Denise, and she is a great friend. Her ankle length shift is embellished with wordly places, cut from white fabric that I ironed to fusible web, and simply ironed onto the dress. Way easy!

Well, the Henry Holland style in the Teen Vogue is the same sort of look, with a different technnique. If you go to the Teen Vogue DIY page, you can see how they did the letters with jewels glued on, using stencils as a guide. I just love, love, love the huge jewels! Now I'm going to have to find my bin of giant acrylic jewels and make myself a shirt.

Yes, I saw the star of the article...Aleene's Original Tacky Glue!!! Personally, I would recommend the new Aleene's Fabric Fusion so that it stays permanent, but Teen Vogue can use whatever they want!

Alyson, I'm with you. I just went through a half bottle of that Fabric Fusion, and I love it. Don't tell anyone, but I have been using it on tons of stuff besides fabric. I think the next thing I have to try, is hemming a pair of jeans. I'm so short, I have to hem everything!
