Aww yay! Looks great. And hey, be proud of your sewing abilities! They are a blessing and not a burden even if it means people bothering you from time to time. They can't help being jealous! Grin Good job on the costume!

hehehee adorable. I like how he has a /long/ arm. Robots are supposed to be made for functionality, not cuteness. You accomplished both!

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Polyester FrumpFest to Cute? Asymetrical Party Dress! on: September 05, 2009 01:03:11 PM
Let it be known that I am less than an amateur when it comes to sewing. I don't know anything about anything. I lurk around this forum for hours and drool. I run out and buy patterns only to be completely bewildered by the instructions. This recon was purely a rip and resew that has a lot of a room for improvement.



So I don't exactly remember where the FrumpFest came from, but anyone who has been to a secondhand store has seen one like this. It is a delightful stretchy, itchy, polyestery little number, but not particularly my style. I decided the sleeves and length were the first thing that had to go. I took my scissors and sloppily chopped here and there.


Tada! Well, not exactly finished yet. Although, a little piece of me wishes I would have stopped then. Only, there was A LOT of extra bosom room that well, I didn't need. Smiley


So I decided to unbutton the dress and then pull one half of it over until fit a little better.


I pinned it in place, and then sewed up the side.


I added some completely non-functional and only for show green buttons to cover the button holes from the old buttons.


Andddd VOILA!

So it pulls in weird places a little because well, I don't know what I am doing and I may have overcorrected the length a little too much. I would have preferred it to be a couple more inches longer, teehee.

So all you lurkers who dream of being able to sew, but words like "interfacing" and "serger" make you nauseous, JUST START CUTTING! And then...sometime later (when it is convenient for you) you can learn how to sew for real.  Grin

you are killing me! this sociology class I am in is kind of slow, so I end up surfing the net every day around this time (LUNCH TIME!). First your scones had my tummy growling, now this pizza has me ready to walk out of class.

thank you for all of your yummy recipes and tantalizing photos!
