I haven't posted in a while but I wanted to show off my newest creation. My faux leather dress with spikes. I wore it out to Sugartown here in Portland and got a great reaction so I am really proud and happy with this one.
I found some cheap fabric at Joann's that screamed spring. I wanted to make a super simple dress so I took an old shirt that I love dearly but that I can't wear anymore due to some pesky holes in the front and used it as a basic outline for the dress. It was the perfect length and pairing it with my red bow belt and red shoes I got a bit of a retro feel from it which I loved. Pretty sure this is one of my new favorite dresses.
I have really wanted to make a fun circle skirt for myself for a while now. But finding fabric that I can fold into quarters to cut a doughnut out is hard. But I went to the quilt back section of Fabric Depot and found this super pretty print. I love it! Plus the colors gave me an excuse to wear my yellow shoes which I was needing. I also bought some pretty olive green stretch crushed velvet from Joanns a while back and made a leotard out of it. You can't see the bottom because I'm a bit modest and wore my skirt which I also made a while back. Some fun creations in the past few months.
Aww thank you! I was really proud of this dress so I just had to share it. I wasn't really going for the Alice look originally but the more I looked at the pictures afterwards it does look a bit intentional. lol It only took me about 6 hours to make from cut to finish. I had random patterns for a tank, the skirt and the sleeve pattern all from different projects and I just put them together for this. I've make tank dresses before so it wasn't hard to just alter the process a bit. And yes! The clock perse is totally functional. I got it from Stupidiotic.com ( http://www.stupidiotic.com/product_info.php?products_id=134 )
Made a new dress yesterday! My husband gave me a gift card to Fabric Depot for my birthday last month so I went and found some amazing stretch fabric. I'm kind of in love with this dress so I made an OoTD post on my blog with the jewelry I made as well.
I know this specific type of project has been done a thousand times but I had so much fun doing it I just couldn't resist taking pics of the before, during and after. Now the big question... Where am I wearing them first?
I haven't posted much here lately as Keena was so kind to get me addicted to Tumblr where I spend most of my online life these days. I also have been working on opening my own clothing site which will be open very soon!
But I wanted to show off some fun and easy little outfits I made for myself recently. First was a simple tube dress with an elastic top and halter straps. I used it for a costume as a sexy Hamburglar. Robble Robble! But it works well for going out as well. Also its easy to hide the straps and have it just be a tube dress. I made the bracelet and hair bow as well.
And in this second outfit I made the crop top with some amazing fabric I found at Joanns and the black skirt as well.
