1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Library skirt on: February 22, 2014 12:09:52 AM
My oldest sister loves books! A while ago she found a skirt online that was made of book fabric, and decided she had to have one, so I made her one for Christmas! I used Alexander Henry Somerville Study fabric, and this amazing tutorial http://www.oneaviandaemon.com/hemless-a-line-skirt/



She loves the skirt, and it fits her perfectly. She wore it to a "What I Want To Be When I Grow Up" party (she went as a librarian)



And I embroidered a "sexy librarian" for it too, using a pattern from http://sublimestitching.com/ (this was the first time I'd done any embroidery)



Thanks for looking and I appreciate any feedback! Smiley

I bought this fabric a little while ago, because I was so in love with it. I was planning to just make a super simple, around the house sort of dress with it- you know, cut off a tank top and sew the skirt on? But I decided the fabric was too good for that, and came up with this instead. I finished it just in time to wear to my best friend's engagement party!



(I tried to take a photo at the party, but it was REALLY windy, so it turned out a bit dodgy. I'll show you anyway, so you can see my orange shoes and handbag! Cheesy)



I drafted the pattern myself and it's (almost) all french seamed. I'm super proud of it and it fits REALLY well (I'm trying to lose weight, so next time I wear it I might be able to breathe!)
Oh! And it has a bright green zipper in the back! (I don't have a photo of the back when it's on, but this is the zip)



Thanks for looking, and I appreciate any feedback! Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / I wish I was from the future! on: August 18, 2013 04:46:06 PM
I've been browsing Craftster for years now, but have never posted my own project until now, so here goes! Be nice to me! Tongue

A few weeks ago my best friend had her 21st. She asked us to come dressed as the era in which we *wish* we turned 21, so I chose to go future/post-apocaplyse. I made a hood, a sort-of-bustier-type-thing, and redecorated a pair of shorts I had sitting in my drawers unused for a few years now.

I'm super proud of my hood. I started with a dark brown faux fur inside, and built up the outside with fabric scraps and other bits I had around.



...and this is the rest of the costume!

The front



And the back



And this is me wearing it with a 1940s leather trench coat that I've had for a while...
