31  Tank Top with some modifications in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TMLGirl on: April 26, 2009 01:42:16 PM
So I'm new to the forum and fairly new to sewing.  I have tons of scraps of fabric and decided to make my first top with no pattern!  The leopard print is actually from an old pillow case...

It didn't turn out exactly as I hoped though!

This is what I came out with....


I was going for this type of neckline.... as you can see I failed....


I wanted to do something fun so I made a braided strap and back neckline...



And finally.... since the shirt turned out pretty scandalous I figured I might as well go with it, this is a technique I saw on a shirt at Guess and just copied it....  Can do a quick Tutorial if anyone was interested and doesn't know how, it's pretty easy and I think it would look cool down the side of a shirt or down sleeves or something......

32  Neck Line Help! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by TMLGirl on: April 24, 2009 05:11:08 AM
Hey everyone,

I was wondering if someone can enlighten me.  I have an idea for a shirt I want to make and I want this kind of neckline....




I can't picture in my head what the front piece of the shirt should look like when I cut it out.  If anyone can do a really rough schematic for me on how to accomplish this, or any advice I'd really appreicate it!

Thanks in advance for any help.

This was my first time wokring with stretchy fabric and I kinda got in a fight with my sewing machine, but we worked it out!  Got the fabric for 9$ (end of a roll)  used 3.5 m.  Took me a bit longer then an hour because I made the straps double sided due to the patterning!  Anyways I LOVE this dress, spent over an hour playing with it and I'm going to wear it ALL summer!  My mom wants me to make her one for a wedding she is going to!  This is such an awesome project! thanks for your inspiration everyone!

34  Newbie! First Jacket! Thrilled with the result! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TMLGirl on: April 20, 2009 07:30:21 PM
Hi everyone,
I'm new to the site and sort of new to sewing.  i used to sew in highschool but took a 5 year hiatus.  This is one of my first projects back (I'm 25 for the record).

It is a short bomber type jacket from a McCall's pattern.  I'm not good enough to go without a pattern yet!  It was my first time lining anything so I'm happy with how it turned out! I thought the fabric was really unique, and I just lined it with some sweatpants type material (Still learning the lingo)

I'm really enjoying the site and getting really inspired! Hope you enjoy my work

And of course some shots of it on!



Advice, Criticism, Praise....... All welcome!  Cheesy

35  Cat Daybed! McCall's Pattern in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by TMLGirl on: April 20, 2009 07:24:27 PM
This was my first attempt at something crafty mixed with sewing, I learned the hard way about burning myself on the gluegun.  I was thrilled with how it turned out and shockingly, for the most part, my cats use it for the intended purpose! 
Ta da!






They like it so much that they fight over it!


Oh man, this has to be the most glamourous cat accessory I have EVER SEEN. Wisting, WE HAVE TO HAVE ONE OF THESE. I'm seriously impressed :-)

I should have posted earlier!
It's McCalls M5677
this is the website I bought it from
http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5677.htm?tab=hilary_duff&page=2 (mod's please remove if this isn't allowed)

there are 3 options to choose from, but I thought the one I did was the most chic.
