I haven't been overly busy with sewing...And I really should be studying for my College Algebra final (meh, I'm a Junior in high school, who really needs College Algebra)...
Anyway! The school play is...ahem...2 days from now and I just now decided that MAYBE I should make a costume for the main character. She's about my size (except the top of the dress will fit better on her, it's a little loose on me), so I was going off my measurements.
SO! It started out a VERY 80's prom dress...Dark blue sequins, white...stuff with tulle...
BTW! Apologies for the crappy quality of all the pictures, my house is poorly lit and they are cell phone pichas!
After I cut all the tulle off (Horray, underwear!)
Oh, if they flag that picture (meh) with SHORTS!
I hemmed it (EVIL!) and added a spaceman silver (no like, really) skirt...It's really fun, it's high-waisted and has "lining" and is just worn under the dress (or with an awesome shirt which will happen in the future).
Next!! My best friend (and wife, we got married over the summer along with my other wife) likes mustaches! So, instead of making her just a boring shirt with a boring mustache, or a shirt with a BUNCH of mustaches (and screwing it up) I found a picture of...well this! And I like it mucho, it turned out well. It's a Ninja riding a mustache (that has a Fu Manchu mustache) with a cloud!
To show that it's off center.
And finally, my outfit for my Christmas Band Concert (that I reconned). It's a I guess prom dress that had like 4 tiers and went to the floor, so I chopped 2 off and made it a cute above-the-knee dress. And I have a creame button up shirt (silk ftw) and it said Small and apparently it meant child or something, because the sleeves went mid-forearm and the shirt went to my belly button...So I cut it to be purposely short and wore the sleeves pushed up (because I was scared to cut them, they were uber tight on me)
And to end the post...
I broke a needle hemming the sequinss (and the middle layer of fabric, and the lining)...Surprisingly it was near the end...Anyway, I had never bent a needle like this before it broke!
