So here is what I ended up with! First, I stripped the vinyl from a three-ring binder to make "leather" pants. Let me assure you, pulling vinyl pants onto a plastic doll's body is not easy. Size UP if you are going to try it! The top is made from a padded envelope. I wanted to make some sort of parka or vest from it and create a look for skiing, but it turned out to be much harder to work with the bubble wrap than I thought, so I settled for a "quilted" top. Then, as a closure, I used brass brads and wound a strip of vinyl around them, interoffice-envelope style.
This is definitely one of the more subtle looks this week, so I don't know how it will fare in the judging, but I was happy just to have an outfit to send down the runway!
