This is Where We Sleep.

September 3, 2009 · 7 · 1

Ashley Bowman - Boyfriend's Old Self Destroyed/Repaired/Embellished Tank, Grandma's House/Dress Up From Childhood Self Made Lace Skirt - This is Where We Sleep.

My boyfriend wore this tank to paint something and got paint on it, there was also a hole in it... and I thought "hey that is inspiring to me." So I beaded the top of it with stones from an old necklace of my grandma's along with some buttons and beads, and added a few more holes to it. On the side, I ripped up shreds of a chiffon dress I was re-vamping, and inserted them so they drape down. Opposite side is cinched with elastic... I love how the stones are the same color as the paint :D
I made the skirt with an old slip, made short from long, and the back part of the skirt was from a skirt on a doll/ we used to play dress up with it at my grandma's when I was little.
