11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Silly Elephant Coat on: January 05, 2009 05:51:03 PM
I put this coat together somewhere between christmas eve and boxing day. It's a very simple coat, with ginormous sleeves and a pleat in the back, so it went pretty quickly. The pattern is McCall's M5479, and I didn't have any problems with it, other than the collar not fitting properly. I like it better the way it is, so it's not a huge problem.

The outside is flannel from JoAnns, and the inside is cotton from their halloween stuff. ($1.50/yard for the win!). Most of the lining is hand stitched to the facings, but it's also machine tacked in a couple places. It was my first time making buttonholes, and I've got a while to go on them, but most of them are at least presentable. Not pretty, but functional, and most people won't notice the flaws.

Apologies for the pajamas, but I just got back from a convention yesterday, and I really haven't felt like getting up.


Front view. I would button that top button, but it's not on straight. D:


Giant sleeves! You can see the lining pretty well here.


A better shot of the lining and front facings. Also in this picture are a towel and a bookcase. Lol cameos.
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pleated Pointsettia Skirt! on: December 17, 2008 07:13:46 PM
I saw this fabric at Jo-Ann's and fell in love with it. It made a beautiful skirt, and they're still enough there for a head band!  It's made of 4" box pleats, and a not-very-invisible zipper. It's mad comfy, and it moves beautifully!

The skirt, as modeled by my fantastic neolithic sculpture. (It was supposed to be a dress form, but it came out much more like the sculptures of pregnant cave-ladies. It's also much bigger than I am. xD)

Action Shot! I had to stand on my toilet to get a proper picture of it, and nearly fell off. xD


I'm very fashionable today, if you can't tell. The rain has me all bundled up, and this is what I wear under it. xD
