Leather & Spikes and Everything Nice

Ok maybe more like faux leather.  But this dress was a project I had been putting together for a while and I finally had an occasion that would let me show it off.  Leather skater skirts are all the rage right now which I love but I figured why stop at a skirt?  This was my first bodice attempt I have ever made and it's still taking some getting used to as far as making and measuring but i think it turned out pretty good for my frist try!  Once all the sewing was done and it was put together it looked great but it was lacking in just that little extra that accessories weren't going to fix on their own.  Boom!  Spikes.  The dress was done.  So off with my friends to Sugar Town I went where I felt so sexy and proud.

  11. That dress is amazing! I'm about your size, and I'm always terrified of strapless tops. Just looking at that bodice gives me nightmares! Rolling, drooping, slipping...I have to know, does it stay put? If so, I want one just like it!!

  12. Chrome tanned top-grain leather. The leather is a called a covering (no get done) with aniline color mixed inside the skin.
