it looks beautiful, i think you've solved the problems of the pencil skirt for me, you did a high waist of one with a more a line bottom.

this is coming from the influence of many older women i work with - make sure you match you unmentionables to each other AND your tops!

Ahaha! Gotchya! In my defense I just chucked the clothes on for the photo- wasn't going out like that or anything... but still, no exuse! Older chicks can be very wise!

How nice to wake up to a bunch of comments Smiley Thanks everyone.

I do have a bit of a critique though, just a suggestion so don't hate me. You are so petite that the width of the belt on your back looks heavy like a harness for lifting. If you slightly taper the width of the back down even by an inch or so it would really help to accentuate your tininess. I hope you don't mind my opinion


I love it when people give me ideas so thankyou! I'm planning on making more belts when I get around to it so I'll definately keep that in mind:)

This is your FIRST belt?? AWESOME! Really, you could sell these. I'm impressed!

Thanks:) I don't think I would sell them just yet though... the one thing I had an issue with was how to neaten the edges of the fake-leather-vinal stuff. The backing is this woven fabric stuff which frays a bit. On 'proper' belts they have that wax looking stuff. Does anyone have any ideas on how to neaten the edges so they look professional?

So apparently nude is the colour to be wearing this spring as well as revealed edgey zips. Not to forget the high waisted belts which are still around.

So here's my little creation.





Here's a better photo of the belt.



I looked in at least 5 different large shopping malls for a light coloured belt to go with a black dress I bought for a winter wedding... but EVERYWHERE had only black or brown belts! So down I toddled to the local emporium. Picked up some buckles and fake leather stuff for under $5 and went about copying the ($160) belt that the dress was displayed with at the shop. I was very pleased! First time belt maker Smiley

Let me know what you think Smiley

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My Sewing Corner :D on: October 01, 2009 08:42:32 PM
At the mo I'm living in the old master bedroom of my parents house, which (lucky me!) has two wardrobes. One I use for clothes, the other tends to be spewing with junk (read: old clothes, bags & shoes I never use). Yesterday I got allllll the clothes out of the spare wardrobe & took most of it down the road to the city mission op shop. I got home to my empty wardrobe & had a brainwave: Sewing corner!!!

SO after many hours of sorting, chucking, dragging, sawing & rearranging, I present my little sewing cupboard. It's rather, umm, how do I say.. shabby chic?

Let me know what you think and if you have any brill ideas for it please let me know! Also, I think it's deserving of a catchy name & name plaque. Ideas??

'So welcome to my little corner of the world'






It's all reflecty...


Beautiful buttons & books


It's a mood board. Lovin' it!


Luckily there's plenty of space for all those 'work in progress' garments...


Patterns kept in my great-grandpa's old money box


Colourful cotton


And to finish


Eeep! I can't wait to use it!!

I really love your pens!! I've only worked with polymer clay a couple of times... I was wondering if the pens are not effected when you go to cook the clay in the oven?
