11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How will I make this? Infinity type of dress: Los mil y un vestidos on: October 08, 2009 09:41:18 AM
Hi everyone!

I came across this AMAZING dress this week.

Watch this video, you will want one too! (plus how cute is this girl!!)

I need one.... now!!! I'm leaving on vacation in two weeks and would love to make myself a version.

I know buying one would be simpler (plus I would love to give props to the genious who thought of this design) but they ship from Spain from what I gather... not so great for getting it fast and easy!

Any thoughts on how I could go about it? Has anyone ever tried to make one?

I need all the help I can get!
Thank you all so much!

Thank you for your comments  : )

It's actually very comfortable to wear

It made me smile when I read:

so you don't have the edges of the safety pins catching on hairs and pinching and stuff

My hair is super short this summer, so I hadn't even thought of that!!! I have to agree, it would be a pain in the butt to have those little neck hairs getting stuck in the pins...

This is how I spent my son's nap time this afternoon. Made with safety pins, jump rings and little green chip beads. Inspired by Tom Binns' safety pin jewellery...



Comments and criticism always welcome and appreciated  Smiley

Thank you all for your nice comments!

I used the paper to cover canvas board, which I screwed the hooks into... The hooks feel really sturdy.

Since I wanted to maximize "hanging space", I kinda ripped out the wood and fabric mat board that was part of the frame... and, as I later realized, was left with frame format that no standard canvas board would fit into... Ummmm yeah.....

So I decided to attach it straight to the back of the frame instead of "inside" the frame... Since the hooks poked out through the other side, I screwed wooden beads onto the pointy parts so everything's now nice and tidy on the back...

I had been wishing to make one for a while... and now, it proudly hangs on my bedroom wall! Woohooo!
On the closeup you can see the paper I used for the background... I might add some more eyelet hooks to hang more earrings too.

So... what do you think?

I loooove the lighting too, it captured the mood we wanted to set perfectly! We had been imagining it for months but when the guy came to install the actual spotlights I couldn't wait for him to leave to jump around clapping in my hands: ah c'est beau c'est beau!!!  Wink

The lights were called PAR64, they have LED bulbs. They were perfect since you could program them to change colors at whatever speed, etc. plus they didn't get hot to the touch which was great. We placed the lights in front of the tablecovers but I guess the effect might be similar lit from the back since you could sort of see through the white "tablecloth".

Pheew! After a year of planning, my department's Christmas party is finally over... We were 3 to organize it, and had to overcome a lot of obstacles... but we made it! All the stressing out and loosing sleep over details was well worth it. I wanted to cry when we got done decorating! HAHA

When we got there, there was nothing but a Christmas tree in a corner of the room (you can't see it in these pictures)

So... we turned this ugly hotel reception room:



Into this awesome (if I do say so myself) lounge bar!!!




We had rented LED spotlights that changed color throughout the evening... it looked GREAT!!!



We hung a couple hundred snowflakes from the ceiling, and the mural we hung in the back shows a snowy forest...



The "drapes" we hung are actually plastic table cover rolls...



It turned out great... now I need a break!!
