1  fixed up a pair of urban orginal shoes in Shoes: Completed Projects by kaitmustwait on: August 26, 2009 11:00:49 PM
exhibit A:
cute yellow flats i bought to replace the flats that i wore until they were threadbare and worn down:

Alas, my skinny heels don't stay in said shoes, i'm a 9.5 technically and these are size 10 (i'm sure some of you have had this dilemma as well).
But I knew I could fix it.

Ta-Da!

Aren't they cute? FYI: I have long toes, mostly i just deal with a little bit of toe cleavage; it's at a bit of an angle, straight on it's not so bad (AND sorry for the messy bg; that's my turtle Red Warrior in his tank, and his food, as you can see).


Close-up on stretchy silver cord (braided by me) attached to the sides, with a button on one end to get in and out.

It has a button fastening:


See? They stay on now!


What do you say? Successful endeavor? I'd say so, it only took me about an hour to do!
I'd love to know what you think!

2  My First Denim Skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kaitmustwait on: August 21, 2009 11:43:22 PM
I'm having a hard time uploading to Burdastyle, but I wanted to show off my new creation!
Modified from another user's pattern here.

Front


Back


Back Pocket Detail


Front pockets are lined in a country blue floral cotton.
I embroidered the back pockets to look like incense smoke curls.
Hemmed the bottom in flat-catch stitching.

Here's my would-be burda description:
So the original Laurelle pattern (thank you lariana!) off of which my skirt was created didn't quite reach the size that I needed it to be. I was making this skirt for a plus-size lady, who wanted the cute without the bulk.
 She also requested it sit lower than the high-waist of the pattern. Additionally, I eliminated the fly front in favor of an invisible side zip. I also try to incorporate the possibility of tailoring into my garments, so the zipper is folded down to lengthen the waistband if desired and the hem is handstitched in a flat-catch for easy hem adjustment.


I hope you like.
