Sorry to resurrect such an old post, but these are so beautiful!   Shocked
I was wondering what fabric you used for these, is it just a T-shirt-type knit? Did you finish the edges at all? How?
Thanks!

All good! im glad you like them Smiley They were all made using stretch jersey knit and im lazy so i just overlocked the edges... im pretty sure an overlocker is the same thing as a serger?!? not sure though

Hope this helps!

OMG....they are so pretty.
I like the blue one, it has a really sexy glamour to it.

So, can I be so rude to ask for a tutorial on it?

Thanks so much in advance and really great job on the patterns!!!!

Thanks heaps guys! I've been wearing them non stop! going to have to make heaps more i think!

I've done a quick little text tute below.... if anyone needs better instructions or or photos or has any questions don't hesitate to ask Smiley

- grab a t-shirt that you like the fit of, not too tight but not a massive band shirt.
- Fold the sleeves back on then selves, and dont cut them, just at where the seam should be.... (If that makes sense)
- Pin it to your chosen fabric and trace/cut with your seam allowance. (I always leave way too much as Im scared everything will be too small)
- Use a long ruler or something straight to graduate your t-shirt sides long enough for you. Make sure you graduate down in an A line skirt manner
- Pin inside out and sew up your sides.
- try it on and take in and tweek as need be Smiley

Lately I've been on a bit of a maxi dress kick, they are just so quick and easy to make and wear! Just throw one on and look instantly glamorous Smiley

There are four different dresses here, 2 different patterns... but they don't vary too much!

All patterns and designs are my own Smiley

Number 1-  I call her Alexandra W - Royal Blue



T-shirt style maxi dress with deep v neck, can be worn on one shoulder or both - Made out of a beautiful royal blue knit which im sorry to use the last of Sad but we'll worth it in this dress i think!





Number 2 - Alexandra W - Black and Gold Striped



Same pattern as the Blue one.





Number 3 - Lydia H - Black and Gray, with shredded details



Twisted black and gray straps with gray shredded detail on the back - black and gray jearsy





Number 4 - Lydia H - Black and Gold Striped



My favorite I think, black and gold Jersey with two layer skirt super skinny straps which took hours! but are well worth the effort and blister on my finger.





The back straps form a sort of keyhole thingy.

Which ones your favorite!?!?!

As allways c & c is adored and im more than happy to answer any questions!

xoxo

Thanks heaps guys! I sooo in love with this and am so sad that its summer now and i have to put it away Sad It was a really easy project, probably cause I had a pattern as a base,  i estimate it took me about an hour all up. Without a base it wouldn't take much longer... if anyone would like some help don't hesitate to pm me!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / In a bag full of buttons bats will swarm on: November 16, 2009 02:01:55 AM
In a bag full of buttons
I'm that tiny unique one.....

Odd in size and color
Holes as round as the sun.....

I may not shine or sparkle
Or even catch most eyes.....

I may not match one's attire
Nor compare to all those flies.....

Though, I may not have a matching set
I've learned to stand alone.....

When it comes to wearing the britches
I surely can hold my own.

I found this wonderful poem about buttons written by 4 SUGAR BEAR - here - http://poetrywithmeaning.com/authors/4%20SUGAR%20BEAR/6417 and thought it was fitting Smiley

This is quite a simple little summer dress, it just needed something to spice it up. I decided to utilize my rather large button collection and showcase my favorite buttons on the dress. This is it so far. When ever i find a new button I love I'll attach it Smiley hopefully it will get quite over the top!

Close up of the buttons







And here is a mini, bat wing style dress i whipped up before an cocktail event one day, very rushed job... so rushed in fact i forgot to use my zig zag stitch for the middle and its an awful squeeze to get into... but one its on it fits beautifully







Thanks for looking!

As always c & c is adored Smiley
