1  It's messy but pretty in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by NVA on: February 25, 2006 03:21:26 AM
Not to long ago I brought this blazer. It was your average houndsooth blazer and it was also a little to short in the arms so a rarely wore it. Well one day I decided either I could let it rot in the closet or make it wearable.

 I added this fuzzy fabric that I had left over from a project that I never finished. The thing I hate about it is that the fuzz falls off and gets in my hair, on my clothes, floor, machine. I'm thinking of serging the edges maybe that'll help.



I've serged all the edges because I'm lazy it looks alright I'm lazy. (completely unimportant: It still has marker marks on it but I'll wash it soon and that'll be gone.)

2  My first pair of pants! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by NVA on: February 24, 2006 11:21:38 PM
Not ever! These were the first pair I've ever sewn. The pattern was about 4 inches to small so I made sure to cut it large. They're pretty comtorable and I'm now giving myself a nice little pat on the back.

My mirror is flithy! I should be ashamed of myself Tongue

3  2 (very pretty) shirts in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by NVA on: February 24, 2006 11:15:43 PM
Hey all! I haven't posted any projects in awhile but when I saw this board I decided I had to whip out the 'ole camera! I made these patterns from a couple of yards of fabric I found at the thift store.

The first shirt is based on a shirt I saw on an album cover and fell in love with.


The second I just came up with. I have an abundance of tiny gold belt buckles that I haven't used and I hate to not use things (don't you?).


Please excuse the bra straps. I unfortunately have yet to get my hands on a strapless Embarrassed

I've recieved all my bookmarks on the same day (I'm such a lucky dame)!


The first (from the left) is from Reverend_Kayla (and yes I do like it),

the second is from Kiki_eks (Reads: Because sometimes it just feels good to BITCH) I think it feels good all the time,

and the third is from BklynGal (Reads: You say bitch like it's a bad thing) it's never bad!

Here's the envelope and the label from Kiki_eks:


Thanks ladies! I love them all dearly!

5  My first sewn dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by NVA on: July 25, 2005 02:50:04 PM
I've never sewn a dress before but after days of thinking on it, I got off my lazy ass and decided to do it!  I made it from a sheet! The bottom, I used a pattern and the top (not shown) I made a pattern for. I was inspired by a dress from http://www.daddyos.com/





Sorry, I didn't iron it after washing.

Wahey, my post inspired some creativity! (obviously not mine, as I haven't bothered to start the skirt yet no money = no lace & no fabric = no skirt.)

Having read how you made yours, and how another user explained it on my thread, I'm guessing that this is how it works out (pretty much) - I'm not very good at visualising things.



Though I was slightly confused when you said you 'fitted' the elastic - did you do it after you had sewn the two ends together? I would have assumed that you stitched a little sort of 'casing' for the elastic to pass through, pulled the elastic through it to ruffle the skirt, and sewed the two ends together.

Damn me for not understanding supposedly simple things.


My walmart has tons of plaid fabric in the one doller per yard section, it may not be exactly what you want, but it would be fairly cheap.

That's where I got my fabric and lace.

10  Soda can and button rings! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by NVA on: June 27, 2005 09:46:52 PM
 I can never find rings that fit my fingers so I decided to make them myself!




The tops are made of the tops of buttons and the bottoms are made from soda cans that I cut and bended. I should have turned them the other way so it would be silver instead.
