13  elastic shoe problem in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by atomickim on: April 25, 2008 06:42:18 PM
i recently bought a pair of wedge heels from walmart. they are really cute buuut the elastic on the back of them is loose and my foot pops out. i was just wondering if there is any way to fix it without destroying my shoes

14  just finished (Vogue V8184) view F in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by atomickim on: April 09, 2008 06:19:48 PM
so this started out as a practice dress but i actually really like it. yea there are some mistakes but it being black hides that in the pictures hehe Cheesy

i have no idea what this fabric is. i bought it off the $1 rack at walmart but its a thick material and the red is just what i had left over from another project.
i havent hemmed it or sewn on the straps..not sure if i want to or not. i might make them detachable

dont mind the skull i always seem to finish projects when i look my worse.. Cheesy

so i saw this cute little lace jacket thing online

 and i think its adorable! i would love to make one but how? could i use regular lace like chantilly lace? or does it need to be something more sturdy? and does anyone know of a pattern i could follow. im not very good at making up my own  Cheesy

18  pretty "practice" dress updated with pics in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by atomickim on: March 18, 2008 06:42:42 PM
so i'm making my own wedding dress. its going to be really simple
i used Easy Stitch n' save M5564 view B
i decided to make a practice dress because i've only made two other dresses before and they didnt turn out so well. for some reason i picked up some plaid at walmart for a buck a yd
i went really slow and the dressed turned out very well! im actually going to wear it out in public. i still need to hem the dress and do some other minor things.
excuse the messy hair/weird look on my face

bustline (excuse the bra)

i think it looks better with my petticoat on ( excuse the mess i was moping the kitchen =P)
