Psynopsis DIY Dotted Tights
Any idea what this is? It's the search for the perfect dotted tights. The dots mustn't be too small, but not too big either, and not too many… In the end I was so exasperated I tried DIY. Acrylic paint you can never get out of your clothes and there's always a potato somewhere in the house. Still need to work on the technique though…

Ha, brilliant! I'm guessing sarah's not afraid of heights...or maybe she is and you're up to your old sadistic tricks again ;)
I think I once had the perfect pair Sabine from good old toppers but they ripped second wear and they never stocked them again...sniff

You guys are two peas in a pod. So fun! These polka dot tights are no joke!

Kazuko - Thank you! It was worth a try, no? In the end I'll probably just buy some the good old way.

Vint Junky - I had the whip out: 'On to the roof with you!'...
Also I forgot to mention that they immediately ripped. 10 dernier - obviously not for me :(

Indie.Tea said...

What a great idea! The tights look nice.
And I thought the 'experiment' meant with photography - I love the textured look of that first photo - but they are all gorgeous.

You are too amazing! I think they're fabulous! :)

Veshoevius said...

Great photos - when I first saw the top one I thought it was a black and white of trees until I scrolled down and saw the feet and realised they were legs - nicely done!

Rei Kawakubo would certainly approve Sabine!

First, they're beautiful photos. Second: when I started my blog, and knew about 6 people online, I had a 19 year old 'blog friend' in China (who has since stopped blogging) who did the most beautiful drawings in black marker on a pair of tights. I designed a logo for her and wanted to help her start a little Etsy shop. She sent me a pair with my name - IN MANDARIN - running down one leg. Wore it proudly to my first Fashion Week, Sept 2009.

Then, I hand washed it. She had used non-indelible ink. My Mandarin words ran down the sink, like tears in the rain.
