Iron Craft 4: The Shania Top

Iron Craft #4 challenge:

For this challenge, we put it to you to make something that you have seen and didn’t buy because you thought you would like to try to make a version instead.

 Well, this creation I saw... and tried to buy.

But unfortunately (or fortunately for this challenge) I couldn't find it anywhere.

You see, this creation appeared in a Shania Twain video.

This one in particular:

Have a look at the top at 1:28 in.  I love it so much!

So here's what I came up with:

Pretty darn good eh?

Instead of the brownish gold bottom part, I used my Megadeth bandana.  You know.. to make it a little more rock than country hehehe

Lane was copying every pose I did right beside me.  So cute!

I wanted to make this top about 2 years ago when the video came out but couldn't find long fringe anywhere.  Then I was wondering around the Fabricland a few months ago and saw some.  Ooohhhh... I knew what I was going to use it for.  Thank goodness for this challenge or I might never have gotten off my butt and made this top.

I can't wait for summer.  I really love this top.

And doesn't this picture look so rock star?  Dude...

I realize that I need to pull the back down slightly to make the connector hook and eyes a little more uniform.  But pretty damn cool if I do say so myself.

I love your modeling help!

I like your interpretation of the top much better; it is like the commercial version of a runway dress that translates into something most women can wear instead of something that would hang in their closet for being too bare as an exact copy of Shania's would have been.

Great job!
