1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Military/The Count inspired Coat on: September 12, 2011 05:52:11 AM
One project at my patternmaking course at university was to construct a costumized coat for ourselves. as the discussed topic was sleeve attachments it was a must-have in the construction. i decided to do a raglan attachment and as im not the casual one it had to be slightly spectacular  Grin
the coat consists of an upper part that is gathered at the bottom edge, an included belt and a wide assymmetric bottom. as already said it has raglan sleeves with inserted shoulder scales. i did a small stand-up collar, maybe i will change that one day to a high stand-up or something else. closure is a concealed button panel and press buttons at the collar and the belt.
the sleeves have wide cuffs that are winged to the outside. you can also find this wing shape at the flap of the piped pockets, the trenchcoat inspired flap at the back and the assymmetric front.
the shell fabric is a black wool fabric, maybe its felt, im not sure. for lining i used purple polyester taffeta

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Three Years of Skirts on: August 28, 2011 10:50:49 AM
As the title says, i made a post with some skirts i made during the last three years. i made some more but gave them away, mostly without taking photos... i really like skirts, i wear them nearly every day, same with dresses because i cant stand long trousers. though i wear some shorts, so i included my trousers in this post, because there arent much  Cheesy



a layered ruffle skirt with creme lace and a belt, the fabric is eyelet embroidered, forgot to say: this was made with a pattern from patrones magazine



a Beetlejuice inspired underbust skirt made of white and black striped cotton twill


"gypsy punk" capri pants, made of corduroy and jacquard, with tiny tassels and fringe trim at the hem


an ancient inspired layered ruffle skirt, the top founce is asymmetric, i added a trim at the lower edge of the yoke that ends in two tasses


a bodycon military jersey skirt with red piping and golden crest shank buttons



Steamy, lacy bloomers, with a military twist, made of sateen and viscose lace at the back, the piping and the buttons


my "Lampshade skirt", originally a pleated skirt, but it looked awful and i sewed a band to the lower edge to create a kind of bubble skirt


a pleated zipper skirt, if the zippers are open a pleat with self-painted pink bats comes out, as closure theres a hook and eye and two satin ribbons for tying


my beloved gartered newspaper skirt, the design is lip service but i didnt like the original because of the pleather, it has three ruffles made of newspaper print jersey, i sewed on lace at the edges, the yoke got a gartered shape and i sewed on eyelet tape and added buckles to it for possible gathering


a miniskirt made of this amazing concert poster fabric, i dewed on hook and eye take as closure


black and green striped skirt with some "bondage" straps, its really really old, the stripes dont match at the yoke Embarrassed

hope you like it and thank you for looking!!


3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reconstructed Shirts Roundup (dresses, skirt and top) on: August 26, 2011 09:46:04 AM
one year ago i began to get interest in reconstructing t-shirts. actually, my first sewn project ever, eight years ago, was reconstructed though i didnt know that word back then  Grin
as i really enjoy going to concerts every now and then and i just feel insulted by all these fantastic mens shirts and the boring and bulky "girlie"-shirts i decided to hop on the train of reconstruction!!


a Gogol Bordello shirt i changed into a halterneck longtop but wasnt satisfied so i changed it again in a dress with the "origami skirt" and matching straps


a Turbo A.C.s shirt turned to a ballon like bottom with a halterneck top made of white and red striped jersey


a skirt made from a "killers" shirt my father brought me from amsterdam. it does not show the well-known band!


Smoke Blow!!! i just love them!! the bottom is a spirograph skirt, the black swirls were printed with shaving cream and fabric paint


my beloved Nim Vind shirt that turned into an off-shoulder dress, the bats were printed by me and freezer paper


this is an old one, a simple tube top made from a shirt, i "gathered" one side with a hair tie  Cheesy


a Misfits shirt, i turned into an a-line bottom and made a shaped top from purple jersey, again with printed bats


my boyfriend gave me the shirt someone else gave him some years ago, its from a band called deviates, i turned the target to the front and made a fitted halterneck dress


a pin up shirt i turned into a halterneck dress with a reddotted black jersey at the top, bottom and sides


forgot one: a clockwork orange dress, the top is made of leopard print jersey and theres a tied bow included in the pattern



summary: this post is long; im a halterneck addict; i still have some shirts laying around

thank you for looking!!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Burton-esque Biker Jacket on: August 26, 2011 07:23:11 AM
as you might know (or not) i registered here a while ago but lack of confidence for posting my then crappy projects i got lost...
now i want to post some things and trust me, there are a lot of stuff i made the last three years... so, to prevent spamming the board with all things at the same time i start with a profect im, yeah, really proud of and will add others from time to time.
so, i like to introduce you to my burtonesque biker jacket i made three month ago. the pattern is from an old burda magazine i had to change to my size and also had to construct a pattern for the lining.
the fabric is some kind of cotton twill, the lining acetat taffeta.
it consists of an asymmetric zipper closure with a band at the bottom that is closed with a press button, like the cuffs too.
the collar was probably the most tricky part as im always no good when it comes to revers collars... Undecided
i painted the cameo with the deer and the bats with acrylic paint and attached two elbow patches at the shell sleeves that have a spiral topstitching.
what else to say? idk, i think it cost me about 30 euros for material and took me 16 hours of my lifetime.
oh, and my dress form is a bit to big for wearing clothes that are my size  Cheesy







thank you for taking time to have a look!!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Teakettle Pouch (now with the forgotten how-to link...) on: August 25, 2011 02:32:31 AM
yay, my first project post!!
i saw this cute little thing at an assecorize shop but didnt want to buy it for the price (as always). at dawanda i once found a shop with this camps that has a keyring attachment and was ultimately amazed!!
the pouch itself is made from a black cotton with woven words, a striped cotton twill and a viscose batiste with tiny dots. for ining i used purpe acetat taffeta. as you can see, the clamps were sewed on, not glued, i think it has a special look and if youre like me and always do a mess with hot glue than this method will be much more adequat  Grin





6  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hi, finally i relocated this site!! on: August 24, 2011 12:02:27 PM
ahoy!
as the title says, i joined in 2008 but didnt feel confident enough to post my crappy projects and forgot about the page.
now im back!! ... and have improved  Grin
so, my name is sonja, im 22 years old and live in the north of germany.
at the moment, im studying fashion design in my last semester and finish my apprenticeship as a ladies custom tailor these days.
im a sewing addict since i was 15 and couldnt think of anything different than learning something with sewing/creativity.
needless to say that i sew nearly all time, at university and in my free time as well!
im a bit restless with my style as i like to call it. i simply cant decide on one style but like to combine different styles and nearly every day i look different. some ppl think its "untrue", i think its diversity!
i hope that youll like the things i will post on here and also that i can help anybody out of a sewing problem. also i want to learn some new things like crocheting or making jewelry and chat to some fellow craft addicts!!
see you!!!
7  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / hi from germany! on: February 26, 2008 01:35:47 PM
Hi everybody!
Im sonja, 18 and an addict of self-made clothes. i started sewing when i was 15 because i wanted clothes that fit me and dont cost that much and in addition are unique... yeah, not easy when you live in a little town with no fabric stores around you so you have to go 40 kilometres for simple black cotton...
i should say i have a little spleen, i can only wear one colour in combination with black but this colour have to be red, violet, green, pink or white... except from band or oldschool print shirts, they are allowed to have more colours  Grin
at the moment, im working on something i called "stochastic line".  Grin ill present here when i finished it
also, im very interested in music, especially in those little bands nearly nobody knows, so if you know some nice punk/horror/hardcore/goth ones, tell me!
from this music, the internet, my environment and especially from this site i get ideas for clothes. the only problem i have that im not that patient to finish a project in some hours... it takes months sometimes... i try to solve this problem at the moment, because i want to go to a fashion school when i finished school in some weeks but i think im on a good way!
so, i forced me to a short description otherwise i would write for three hours because i talk so much normally and nobody will read it!
have a nice day,
Frl. Tralala
