2  Pink Spotty Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by rosieeee-x on: December 23, 2011 01:16:29 PM
So this is a pinky/mauvy with white spots fabric that I thought might make a nice dress... So I made the dress and I like it Smiley
It has a green embroidered ribbon attached to it around the waist to tie around in a bow...
I'll probably make this again, next time I'll have the waistband a bit lower because it was slightly over my ribs and makes me look chubby!
Anyway here it is...



For a christmassy look I paired it with sheer white spotty tights and fur trimmed boots...




& Yes, I do need to iron the hem and I will as soon as I get an iron Smiley

I love lace. It's official!

5  Ethnic Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by rosieeee-x on: September 27, 2011 08:54:27 AM
I made a top out of some fabric my Aunt & Uncle brought me from South Africa!
I LOVE the print, I think the fabric is beautiful!
I used a free Burda pattern that I printed off at home:

http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/basic-bodice

It was pretty annoying sticking the pieces together because the lines were very faint, so I went over them in a Sharpie pen first and then cut out and stuck!

The bodice has darts, front & back but is very simple and easy to make

I used bias binding for the neck and arm holes and inserted an open zip in the back...

Close up of how the back matched up (I'm pretty pleased with how it did!):


C&C please! Smiley

7  Floral Gathered Skirt (Briefly Written Tute) LACE :D in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by rosieeee-x on: September 13, 2011 01:37:13 PM
So I've been ill the past week and a bit with what my doctor thought was pneumonia - it wasn't! Just a really bad chest infection.. Anyway.. I was up at midnight making this skirt as I have turned nocturnal, I hemmed it this afternoon and voila! A verry poofy gathered waist skirt - No pattern used! It's really simple to make...

- Cut two rectangles from a piece of old vintage fabric my mum gave me and sewed them right sides together
- Finished the open seams with a zigzag stitch
- Rolled one of the long edges over leaving a small gap to insert elastic
- Cut the elastic to the size I wanted and threaded it through using a drawing pin
- Sewed the elastic together
- Sewed the hole closed
- Sewed a (rolled) hem
- Wore it Smiley







As you can see, it is VERY short! I am wearing a pair of shorts underneath and I'm hoping to buy some pretty lace to sew around the edge at the bottom to give it more character and LENGTH!

I added the lace!









C&C please!!

9  Red Dress <3 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by rosieeee-x on: June 10, 2011 08:54:17 AM
Well, I first saw Gabby (from desperate housewives) wearing a dress like this in an episode so I decided to make one, my way...
Made my own pattern for the bodice, made up the skirt as I went along, decided to use an exposed zipper (partly because it was the only one I had!) It was also an open zipper too, so I had some trouble trying to make it so that it wouldn't come apart when I undid it... Yes, I know what you're all thinking! Why not just go out and buy a zipper?! Because i made this dress on a whim over two nights after college :p

Without further ado...

Tell me what you think! Cheesy
