1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: UPDATE: Action PHOTOS added ---- Mushroom dress: hippie and patchwork on: January 05, 2009 03:22:46 PM
What do you think of your dress form? Which one did you decide on? I've been debating/procrastinating it for about a year now. I'm finding it very hard to make apron tops and skirts for myself since I just can't see what I'm doing and don't have anyone to help me...

I don't have a dress form....I just use my body! I had one for a very short time until it broke - I have been waiting on a replacement one from JoAnn's for about 5 months now.....

They do help when making clothes for other people and photos and I do miss mine but did not really use it much.

I think its gorgeous!!! I'm currently using the same fabric collection to create a patchwork hippie bag! Great minds think alike huh?! Smiley

That is so totally cool!!! Don't you just love Heidi Grace? She does the best fabric collects (sold at JoAnns).

This Daydream Believer is a wonderful example of a modern hippiefied patchwork skirt. The colors and fabrics blend and contrast just enough to scream beauty and creativity. This wearable art is a unique piece of clothing that will get noticed and be a joy to wear.

The Daydream Believer skirt was made with elastic so that I can choose which side of the fabric design I would like to have in the front on a given day. No restrictions in usage and personal creative wear. The skirt has a 3-inch top band and then 4 9-inch tiers (rows) of artfully placed fabric. The hem is decorative - see photo.

The spin on the Daydream Believer is 140 inches. This gives me plenty of room to kick up my legs or sit cross-legged but not enough for the wind to blow the skirt up.

And of course there was a drop of love and positive vibe in each stitch of this wearable art, put there with serenity and the joy of artistic creation.

Check out the photos and tell me what you think....












Thanks for looking..... Grin

Wow.  Well done!!

I know just how you felt making this too - I did one in 2 layers of net a couple of years back (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=112167.msg1071581#msg1071581)

It took me two weeks with two bottom layers 24 metres EACH.  But I only had 5 layers, and they were strips, not teeny tiny squares! 

All the time and effort that goes into them, you really can see why they're so expensive when they're in the shops. 

You've done an amazing job!  Kudos to you!   Grin


LOVE the skirt you made!!!! Purple is my favorite color and that skirt simply looks fun and joyful!!

All I can say is that you my friend are a crazy woman!!!  LOL.

I sew and design clothing for girls and I make a LOT of twirl skirts.  Check my posts.  We're speaking toddlers mostly and those small skirts take a lot of time even with me doing 8-10 inch rectangles! (I absolutely REFUSE to do them much smaller).  Mine are usually 3 tiers with each level being DOUBLE of the previous one for maximum twirl. My bottom ruffle on the last skirt was 6 yds and I was complaining!  When I saw your bottom row was 55 I almost fell out of my chair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How the hell did you manage to pin each level???  you must have used a thousand pins! 

I am in awe, somebody help me pick up my jaw!!

I don't use pins...just sew....the serger helps a lot. I didn't mean for the skirt to be so very long - it was a pain to do and I had to force myself to finish - but boy is it beautiful!!!! no regrets....

FABULOUS!!! It's just beautiful. Reminds me of a rainbow. You look just as beautiful wearing it. I guess you can pretty much match any t-shirt,blouse to go with it.  Hey, I like that cute beret also. Sooo, where do you plan to wear this and show it off? You most likely won't be sewing up another any time soon,huh?  You did a wonderful job. JOB? I think you deserve to be paid for this one. LOL.


I will be wearing it during summer music fests.......spinnin g away!!

I was looking at your post last night and my two little girls walked by and both said "Mommy I want one for Christmas this year."  I told them I would make them both one, but they may not be made by Christmas time.  The oldest then said she wanted me to wait until after Christmas to make hers so she could help me make hers.

That is wonderful - you all will have a lot of fun!!! Picking out fabric is the best part!!

whooo awesome skirt! I've been meaning to make myself one but I want to know how it would look in normal time (as in, when not holding it up or out)--do you have any pics of it just... being worn? XD

see photo below....
