22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rubber Glove Dress on: December 02, 2008 02:42:54 PM
In my Advanced Pattern class we were assigned to buy as many items from the local dollar store as we needed to make an evening outfit.  I used rubber gloves, a couple whoopee cushions and sponges.  This is what I came up with:


Front



Back

My original plan was to use balloons, but when I couldn't find any i resorted to the closest thing i could find and ended up grabbing several things from the cleaning section.
I first made a base out of blue scrubby pads (except for the princess panels made of whoopee cushions and gloves which i sewed on their own... not such a good idea, they started ripping apart after awhile) and attached the waistband by hand and each individual glove on the skirt portion with my sewing machine.  I attached the "fringe" (glove fingers and sponges) on the front and the back using my sewing machine and stitching each row at a time.

Thanks for looking =)

These pictures are a few years old, but I'm new to the Craftster scene so I thought I'd add them anyway.
My best friend and I started our journey towards the world of fashion while we were still in high school.  We made several of our formal dresses, but here are our creations for our senior year of Prom:







We used store bought patterns, but added a few of our own elements that the patterns didnt include.
Mine (green) was 2 seperate pieces.

really good for the first time making a garment and for the first time using a sewing machine!
not sure how it got to be so off the shoulder when you weren't planning that, but i like the way it ended up looking.
i think your mistake happened for a reason  Cheesy
