1  End of year Steampunk collection (Pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Suzanne84 on: June 18, 2010 07:41:37 AM
Yesterday was my college's end of year fashion show.
I made a Steampunk collection after being inspired by the Steampunk stuff on this site!

I made all the accessories that go with the outfits too but I haven't got any close up views at the moment. I will try to get some added later.

I have really enjoyed making these clothes and I would like to continue making them.

Anyway, on with the pictures.

I give you, The Lady, The Mechanic and The Tramp....
























Please let me know what you think.  Smiley

This one is black and red. It looked a lil plain so I put eyelets in the back and made a fake corset style.
Looks more dressy now Cheesy

4  3rd bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Suzanne84 on: August 29, 2008 08:10:44 AM
Hello. I made another messenger bag. This one is for a friend. My friends husband asked me to make her a bag as a surprise and said her fav colours are red and black. He said he would pay but I don't think its good enough for that so I'm just gonna give it to her as a present.

I just want to know if it looks ok to give her. I've not made anything for anyone before so not sure if she will like it.

Side pocket for phone:


Inside:



Please tell me what you think before I give it to her.
Thank you.

5  My second bag. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Suzanne84 on: August 08, 2008 08:13:47 AM
I made another bag! This is only the second thing I have ever made from scratch. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
I even put pleats in it. Cheesy
It also has a double layer of interfacing to make it a little bit bulkier and it had an inside pocket with popper and a phone pocket.



Pleats:

Gosh my mirror gets dirty quick. I'm going to clean it right now.. yes right now. Toodle pip!

6  My first bag/ first thing I've sewn from scratch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Suzanne84 on: August 06, 2008 07:46:45 AM
I made a messenger bag today! It's the first thing I have ever made from scratch.
I ran into a few problems, (like sewing the handle inside out) and had to pick the stitches out which seemed to take forever! Arrgghh.
I also made it weird too 'cos I was just going to make a mock up to see how to do it but then got carried away and added lining. Instead of making the outside then doing the lining the same, I sewed each piece to the lining and turned it then sewed the bits together. It don't look too bad I suppose but next time I will try and do the lining seperately.   
It has a pocket under the flap bit. I might do one inside yet but don't know if I can be bothered now lol. I also need to get a big popper to close it.
Next time I now know to sew the pockets and poppers ect to the lining so the thread don't show on the outside. But oh well it's my first time. I'm allowed mistakes lol.

The bag:


It isn't wonky. I just didn't lay it out straight.

Pocket:



The Lining:

7  Reconstructed shirtdress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Suzanne84 on: August 04, 2008 01:48:10 PM
Hello. Me again :-D

I bought a black shirtdress last year but it it was sooo plain  I didn't bother wearing it. Anyways, inspired by my recent embroidery I thought I would do a little something on it. (Nothing as big as the other jacket I did, that was hard work!)
Then I thought the back looked shapeless and boring so I sewed two strips of black material on it and added eyelets then threaded red ribbon through to match the colour on the front. Now I have a fake corset style shirt!   
On with the pics! (Sorry I forgot to take a pic of the before.)

8  Arrgh my bracelet broke in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Suzanne84 on: August 01, 2008 08:11:24 AM
My elastic bracelet broke and I thought "I could repair it...but I've got too many bracelets now" So I made it into earrings instead!



They are quite long, almost to my shoulders, they look so much better as earrings me thinks!

9  Embroidered butterfly (Loads of pics) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Suzanne84 on: July 31, 2008 01:45:53 PM
Hello everyone. I hope you are all keeping well!

I had a jacket someone gave me (I just love cast-offs) but it was a bit boring looking.
 So I embroidered a Butterfly on the back of it using satin stitch and chain stitch. I've never really embroidered before and ran into a few problems.
Firstly I didn't know you had to put that paper backing stuff (I can't remember what it is called) in it to stop it bunching up and secondly I used metallic thread which was sooo annoying to use! The shiny part of the thread kept rolling back up itself so wouldn't pull through! I don't know if that makes sense but GGGRRR it was a pain!
Then I used a chaos stitch round the edge to make it look, err, edgier!



















Please excuse the chalk lines, I need to rub them off.

Comments and  criticism  welcome.
Thanks for looking.

10  My first recon! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Suzanne84 on: July 29, 2008 07:50:33 AM
Someone gave me a top that was really nice but it didn't have sleeves and I never wear tops without sleeves because I hate my flabby arms...
So I cut it up and sewed it to another top. The black top was a little bit too short and kept riding up when I bent over. I also made braces from the red top and sewed them on, then added buttons.


Before:



After:


Here is a picture with me wearing it.  (excuse the dusty mirror, Too busy crafting to clean it! lol)


Please excuse the bad picture and the dressing gown.
Does it look OK to wear in public? I haven't worn it out yet 'cos I'm not sure if it looks silly.
Please give me your honest opinons.
Thanks for looking.
