Cuffed




I was going through the scraps from a project (you'll see it soon:) and was trying to think of something I could make from the cuffs of a mens dress shirt. Here's what I came up with. I'm not so sure I like it or will wear it, but... I have three more to practice on! :):) What do you guys think?? Does it have potential or is it absurd?:)

P.s. Don't mind the stray threads! :0

  3. I love them! If it's good enough for Miu Miu...
    look at this, it's from a year back but I loved it then and I love it now! If you can look through all the collection, I love the way they have them over a black long sleeved top. Lovely work!

  4. I think there is potential, but I see the cuff as a bracelet. So I'm thinking adding ribbons or rhinestones or beads or something to make it more flashy!

  5. Some people like cuffs. It could be a neat accessory to add with a 3/4 sleeve coat or something. I'm like you though, I at this point would not wear it too much. Would it fit on a coffee cup as a sleeve for it? That would be a cute and great easy way to make a coffee sleeve.

  6. I agree with Trisha. You see this idea in mixed media work ... but there would be added embellishments...handmade charms or little beads and rhinestones to glam it up a bit...then wear it as an accesory! I like the start...keep going!

  10. I am just glad someone cut off those things from a mans dress shirt ... they do not belong in any mans wardrobe at all ... u could use them as a wick doused with gasoline to start a fire and the world would be a better place for men who never want to see another man wear such things ever again ;)

  11. I think it looks cool. Maybe style it with an outfit so we can put it in perspective.
