Hidden Secrets skirt by zeloco Hidden Secrets skirt by zeloco
Used a scrap method for the print - there is a method with using freeze paper (google it) and I found how you can make your own freeze paper (Because one does not simply get a freezer paper in Soviet Latvia) using old plastic bags and paper (yay for being eco-friendly!). I tried it before on a tote bag and worked like a charm. I used a different paper this time, so it had a bit of bleeding, but I guess you get better by practice.
The stencil design (the golden one) was hand-drawn on the scrap freezer paper and cut out with nail scissors (no more swirls, Ze! ;_; ). It was based on a mix of the original Eat Me Ink Me logo design and a decorative motif I saw in a book on Baroque decors.
Wooden print fabric came as you see it. Buttons are vintage.

Available at the shop (the blouse, too): [link]

It' s a bit more time-consuming than regular one and a lot more messy, but so worth it in the end c:

umm.. with a pattern? ^^; It's just high-waisted skirt, I added some scallop lace in the seam to add interest and some buttons for that steampunk/military feel c:
