I've been having such a hectic time lately, juggling sewing orders, making new things and doing a load of internet stuff for my website, I've barely had time to stop and do anything else, much in need of a day off I think :) But for now here are a couple of new tops from this week.

This first top is a one of a kind punk style studded denim vest top. It has a lace up front fastening which can be adjusted to fit and is decorated with studded strips of faux leather, star print and wet look, with a studded mini pocket on one side. The back features crossover faux black leather straps studded with silver pyramid studs. I think this is a first, as it's already sold. Dont think I've ever sold something before I even got a chance to write about it, but hey, wanted to show it off anyways!

This top is available handmade to fit many sizes! It's quite similar to one of my one of a kind tops that had a lot of positive feedback and also disappointed people who wanted it to be available in more sizes. Well this one I can make to fit up to a bust of 48 inches! Yes that's right, I even made it available to plus sizes too :) It's made from black wet look with a gathered bust and antique brass look studs. The main body is black spotty semi see through lace with black faux leather studded shapes on the front. The back is plain black wet look. Oh and the strap is halterneck to give a flattering shape to the chest ;)

I wrote about her shop in a post recently and again I urge anyone reading to visit her shop RIGHT NOW! As her jewelery is just totally adorable and really original too! Love!!!!

I'm wondering what people prefer: something completely unique and individual to them that no one else has OR to have their choice of alternative clothing made especially to fit them but is a repeated design? What do you prefer?! This week I made a couple new pairs of leggings. One is a custom one of a kind pair of leggings and the other is a repeated design available in regular and plus size.

The custom pair are made from black leather look lycra with patchwork panels of denim studded with antique look rust coloured studs, star print and black wet look lycra. They are a UK size 8/10.

Now these leggings are available custom made to fit any size up to a hip of 44 inches. They too are made from black leather look and feature sexy black lace side panels, which lace up with black ribbon and tie into bows at the calf.

While I love making unique one of a kind pairs of leggings as they are special and individual to the person that takes them home, I also love being able to custom make my leggings to fit, so that the customer knows they will have a good fitting pair even if they are between sizes and especially for plus size ladies who struggle to find any unique and fun pairs of leggings that are available in plus sizes.

I'd be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on this, would you rather something no one else has? Or something that is made especially with your shape and size in mind, but isn't a unique design?

New Custom Colour Lace Up Top!

I've just listed a new top and it's available in regular and plus size. Not only that but you can also pick your own colour! The one I made is black and purple, but I can also make it with silver, blue or pink instead of purple.

The bust is made from black wet look, with silver studded faux black leather middle piece and a stretchy black halter neck strap for a comfy fit. The main part of the top is made with shimmery metallic overlaid with cute black polka dot lace. The bottom hem is also made from stretchy wet look black lycra and running down each side are faux leather strips with silver eyelets and black ribbon lace up detail.
