1  Dress help needed! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by pendrian on: July 25, 2010 06:13:29 AM
Okay so I recently found a dress at Le Chateau that I am in LOVE with...but entirely can't afford. Stupid school...

Anyways I was hoping to make it, or at least something similar, and was hoping that someone could give me some guidance or suggestions? Mostly I'm wondering what kind of fabric would be easiest and still formal, how best to go about the ruching, and how to do the neckline...any help would be SO appreciated!!

Here's a picture:

2  Laptop / School Bag! [kinda image heavy] in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pendrian on: November 17, 2008 09:23:07 PM
I'm relatively new here....been watching for a while, figured I'd contribute something.

Hooray for my first completed project!! I take my laptop to school with me every day, and I had been using a normal messenger bag for carrying it around, but I got sick of how easily it got banged around in there. So, since I couldn't find a laptop bag ANYwhere that I liked, I decided to make my own. It took me two months to get around to finishing it (procrastination....) but its the first thing of mine that I've legitimately finished and been proud of, in the sewing department. So, needless to say, I'm pretty proud.

Anyways, here it is:

i love the pink inside. i might add a button to that smaller pocket to help hold it shut, but for now its cooperating fine

in laptop-holding action

you can see the fur on the inside of the laptop pocket best in this one. its also got about an inch of padding all the way around it, to save it being banged up.

i recycled some clips from an old backpack to hold it shut, and the strap is just a modified guitar strap


so thats that. it makes me so happy to have a nice safe laptop! i'd love to hear what you think!
