More painter's tape slacks and another refashion



I am so loving the painter's tape pattern. This time I used a pinstripe polyester blend. I lined them to the knee in case didn't want to wear a control garment with them. I am not into panty lines or cellulite! I cannot believe how cool and comfortable they were though the temperature got up 86 degrees.
On the refashion front, I bought this halter on clearance for $5.97 last year, regularly $40. The "necklace" is sewn right to it. The size is an extra large and the back nearly hung to my waist. I sewed clear elastic to the upper back and attached the halter tie as crisscross straps. While I did a good job of "Photoshopping" over it, my strapless bra was showing at the underarm. I need to shorten the straps more. Also I'm sure you're all thinking it because I was when I saw the back shot. WTF?? Is my back that fat?? While I do have a wide upper back, it's the strapless bra from hell squeezing the life out of me. Not really a good look but I can't see the back anyway. It's the people behind me that have to suffer(LOL)! I will say that not one time did I have to adjust my bra or do any rearranging. Of course when I removed my bra for the night my boobs leaped out like they had just been released from solitary confinement!
