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!


  1. Love the outfit you look great, your narrative had me LMAO.

  2. Congratulations on making pants that fit. That's quite an accomplishment.

  3. I know the escape of the boobs feeling. I have it every night. I love the pants and the way they fit you! The top is great and your back does not look fat to me!
