1  Super Breezy Summer Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: July 20, 2012 02:08:39 AM


It's melting hot here in Barcelona so I made this super breezy dress out of a fabric I bought in winter for less than $2 a yard. It's basically just a long tank top with a curved hem.



I am thinking to sew another one in a grey batiste but that's quite transparent and I am not sure how to line it without making it lose its bounce and flow. I was thinking a matching camisole...



What do you think?

This is my newest bag: a sturdy everyday denim bag with skinny leather straps.



It has a red cotton lining and 2 inner pockets.



Would love to hear your suggestions and ideas about this bag!



Thanks for looking!

3  A Very Simple Maxi Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: May 07, 2012 08:16:14 AM
I made this skirt in only a couple of hours, it's a flowy crepe de chine with a knit fabric high waist that can be draped in many ways. It could work as a maternity dress as well.



The lining is shorter (you can see it peaking in the second photo) and has two lateral slits so I can bike in the skirt.

4  Blue Spring Shorts With Floral Trims in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: April 01, 2012 09:51:14 AM


I made these shorts today. They only took a couple of hours to sew and I am quite happy with they fancy yet girly look. All I need now is a pair of saddle shoes.

In case you want to give it a try and make a pair, I've posted the tutorial and the pattern on my blog: http://skyturtle.net/how-to-make-a-pair-of-fancy-shorts-tutorial-and-free-pattern/

Thank you for looking :>

5  Sailor Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: September 11, 2011 10:42:00 AM
I made this a few weeks ago - the pattern is derived from a Burda pattern but I've changed a lot of lines and curves and the fabric :>



and the back



Suggestion, tips?
Does the part above the belt look weird to you?

Thanks for looking!

6  An Oversized Reversed Tuxedo Vest in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: May 08, 2011 05:23:36 AM
I made this last weekend. I was very happy at the time, as I never made a vest from scratch before and this came out nicely. And it's reversible Smiley



I think the shoulders are too wide for my body, but overall I like it.





What else do you think I could change?

7  A simple tshirt + bias tape in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: March 23, 2011 04:07:45 AM


I wanted to see how difficult is to make non-elastic bias tape look okay on a knit piece of clothing, like a tshirt.

I used 12 mm bias tape and a soft batiste and an elastic knit. I think it worked out ok. And it was VERY fast to sew.

Do you think it looks like a pajama?

And the fit:

8  Colorful potholders from scraps - with link to tutorial in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: March 03, 2011 03:56:14 AM
I'm in a stash busting spree at the moment and I decided to use some of the scraps to make potholders for my kitchen. I am definitely making more as they are super practical, cute and everyone in my house loves them Cheesy





It's cool because it's a 15 minutes project. Instant gratification for a lazy Sunday afternoon Smiley

And here's a link to the tutorial I posted on my blog: http://skyturtle.net/2011/02/18/how-to-sew-a-pot-holder-from-scraps/

What do you think? : >

9  A polymer clay brooch with sea glass inserts in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: February 17, 2011 09:38:45 AM


It was fun making this brooch. I mixed blue and green to get this dark shade of green and before baking it in the oven I pushed some pieces of sea glass I found on the beach last summer.

I thought the glass might fall when the plastic gets baked, but it looks like it stuck there for a while.

10  My first pullover - sewn from scratch in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by theskyturtle on: February 15, 2011 07:33:42 AM
You can't see much in the photo, but I am so excited I had to share:D



I drafted the new pattern from the above-mentioned reconstructed pullover. I added longer sleeves, puffy shoulders and a bit deeper neckline.
