1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: A year's worth of clothes :> (pic heavy!) on: May 01, 2011 01:49:31 PM
Thank you guys! I'm a little bit of a color fiend, so I try to find a way to work it into whatever I make (Stormtrooper costume the obvious exception). I think it makes the world a much happier place :>

Goodness, it's been a while since I've posted anything. I've got a wonderful compilation of the work I've done this semester for Y'all.

Firstly, here we've got this lovely skirt. The weather made it to 50 degrees one day in march, and I felt that I needed a short skirt for this. So I made this from an old T-shirt, upcycled fabric from a dress-thing from the thrift store, some lace stuff off a bolt I got at the Salvation Army, and that gorgeous duponi silk print, which was a christmas gift.


Nextly, I made these capri/shorts/pants for concerts. They pockets are tight at the top, and loose at the bottom, and hold everything I might need while there. They're also badass Tongue



Here's the giant-ass patchwork skirt I made for my tailoring class. We made coats, and needed skirts to go with them for the runway. My teacher told me to do an A-line skirt. I blatantly told her no, and then didn't sleep for two nights. It was worth it.

And here it is on the runway! Unfortunately no one got a good picture of the coat, which I also made, but what can you do?


These pants are my babies. I've wanted them for so friggin long, and now they're done! I unfortunately only have runway pictures, but you still get the idea. The jacket was supposed to be closed, and has a notched collar that can fold up and fits together like puzzle pieces. I guess the model was in a rush or something, 'cause she didn't do any of that. :<


This is my non-textile project. Made from fake flower petals stitched together, and a plastic bag skirt. Closes with velcro in the back. There are holes in my fingertips thanks to this dress.


And last but not least, here's my sexy-stormtrooper cosplay-thing from AB. I made the corset and the leggings.  A friend gave me the costume, but funny thing, 5 feet exactly is a bit short to be a storm trooper, so I made my own armour and made do with what I had.

Back view, kinda, and leggings.


Here's my other for AB. I know it doesn't really belong in here, but throwing everything in the same thread is so much easier than having to make a new topic. I'm Poison Ivy, on the right. The top is a corset which laces in the back, the bottom, some variation of booty shorts. I tried to stay as true to the original costume as I could, but there was no way in hell I was going to go in public in lycra. Besides, corsets are so much classier. It's made from some velvety material that my mom got for me at salvation army. :>

Just a repost of what I have up on the Halloween board, but here you go. Smiley

This halloween I wanted to make a (for the most part) accurate Poison Ivy costume for myself, and to beat out any competition for best costume. So about two weeks before Halloween, I started piecing this baby together.

The top is a corset made from my own pattern, stitched from emerald green velour, boned with spiral steel, and lined with muslin. I stitched faux ivy leaves from bottom to top to look like they were creeping up, and bordering the top because... well, that's what her one-piece looked like. I did a corset solely because a: I like corsets. I usually make about two a year for myself, and b: no way in hell was I wearing lyrcra on a night that it's been known to snow on in the North East.

The bottoms are made from a bathing suit pattern from one of my classes last year (I'm a fashion design major), and were slightly modified for increased assage ('cause goodness knows that Ivy is a bit of an exhibitionist). Also made from the green velour, and also with leaves stitched on to make it look like they were extended from the legs.

The tights are just plain nylons that I bought at Shaw's, and then spent forever stitching leaves onto and continually poking holes in my legs by accident. There were also more added after this picture was taken.

C'est tout, let me know what you think! Sorry there's only one decent picture at the moment.

For the corset I made my own, and for the bottoms a very, very modified one that I made in class last year.

That is a really pretty dress. I'd actually wear something like that out normally (does that make me v. strange?)

I don't think so, I was thinking the same thing! I didn't realize it was a costume from the thumbnail. Good job!

I plan on wearing it on a monthly basis, if it makes you feel better Cheesy

Thanks everyone for your comments.
