1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A year's worth of clothes :> (pic heavy!) on: April 30, 2011 11:25:17 AM
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. :>


2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Poison ivy costume on: November 07, 2010 07:40:16 AM
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.

4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Alice in Wonderland- gone my style on: November 02, 2009 01:24:09 PM
Halloween costumes are always a big decision for me, and after a few months of messing around with scrap fabric on the machine, i decided to be Alice In Wonderland this year. As of right now, I only have one picture of this outfit, but more will be coming. 


So all in all, here's what I made and what from:
Skirt: various scrap fabrics, consisting from ribbons found in the trash at JoAnn's to shirts with broken zippers found in the basement
Apron: Upcycled pillowcase, sewn entirely by hand.
Corset: Yet another upcycled pillowcase, from the same set. Bits and pieces of this were sewn by hand as I became time-pressed and needed to finish the costume.
Shirt: Bought off a friend at a yardsale for 25 cents
Not seen: Various embroidery
Total time: 30+ hours

I'll post better pictures of everything later this week.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Finally finished- the monster rainbow tulle skirt on: July 26, 2009 09:16:39 PM
So I've been wanting to make one of these for god knows how long, and finally one day just threw the tulle on Jane (my dress form) until i got something I liked. Everything is hand stitched to the backing fabric. I originally intended to have a zipper, but it seems to work just as well as a tie closure. So here be the pics!


In action! My friend and I did a photoshoot in it the other night for the hell've it.




In daylight on Jane. I can post more pictures if requested. Just feeling kinda lazy right now. :]

Comments/Constructive criticism, please?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Graduation Dress - with action photo now! on: July 18, 2009 07:56:21 PM
I haven't posted in God knows how long, but I've been sewing the whole time. So here's a few for you:

This was my dress for graduation (in the pics here it's not finished, there's a pink eyelet lace at the waist now). Made from a fitted sheet I got for $1 at a thrift store.

Action Pose now! If you can't tell, it's the one on the far left.

Cincher! Made out of scrap leather bought at a church sale.
Kindly ignore the fact that I'm in my pajamas.

And finally, a dress I bought from goodwill, replaced the buttons, removed the shoulder pads, and shortened. It doesn't look fantastic here because I've got my sword and belt on, but in real life it's pretty damn good.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Obnoxiously rainbow dress needs opinions! on: March 22, 2009 01:37:06 PM
So I've been pinning this dress together in my free time for about a month now, it's not quite finished yet. I'm going to ad some of the rainbow fabric as a binding to the bottom of the skirt around the edges. Anyway, I'm just looking for opinions.
Does the heart at the top work, or should I try another shape?

Thanks!

Here's the dress (sorry for the size):
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cincher on: October 14, 2008 06:30:12 PM
Threw this together in an hour and a half.
Made from the remains of a skirt my mom made a while ago, and old pair of pants, and converse.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Halloween Scrap-warmers! (First post!) on: September 21, 2008 08:25:14 AM
So I finally got around to using up a ton of scrap fabric I've had laying around from various failed projects, and this would be the result. Arm warmers + Scraps = Scrap-warmers!



I'm incredibly happy with them, considering that the orange-striped material is really stretchy, and I don't need to cut them to fit my arms exactly.
