21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Measurements for a commissioned corset, someone please help! on: September 18, 2012 06:11:19 PM
A woman is commissioning me to make her a corset, but I'm confused by the measurements she gave me. I'd like to see if anyone in this forum can help me out before I email her again.

Its for an underbust corset, so I asked for the ribcage measurement right under her bust (34) waist (37) and hips (41). She wants the waist of the corset to be reduced to a 34", which would leave the top half of the corset like a cylinder, which seems off to me. I would think that on any body type it would taper in a little bit at the waist at least. Does anyone have a similar body type to the measurements that might have any corset experience with?

I hope this post made sense, please, any help would be great before I start drafting a pattern here.

Ive been holding onto these settings for ages and finally used them all in one swing.



This one is multiple kinds of duochrome paints, it ended up looking like abelone (to me). I love it! Heres the others.

I thought I posted these already but it seems I forgot. I found an amazing brain mold that I used to make some hairclips in 'natural' and 'zombie' Cheesy.





I'm going to love these come halloween even more than I do now. C&C appreciated.

I joined the pendant swap and made the first of these for one of my group members. Ever since I've been unable to stop making these pendants. Shells filled with glitter/stones, filled with resin. The bails are made of bent/wrapped wire. I'd love to hear what you think of these Smiley

I have oodles of colored staples that I think are just so pretty, and I wanted to do something with them. This is what I came up with Smiley





Full tutorial here, but the gist of it is to glue everything together Smiley

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2 new shirts for a month of handmade only clothing! on: May 22, 2012 11:20:05 AM
So this month for many sewers is 'Me Made May' and my pledge is to wear one handmade thing a day for the whole month. (I'm currently breaking the rule by staying in my pajamas but I'll change before I go out ;P). Without a lot of repeats, I've been trying to sew up some new stuff, and I wanted to share two shirts with you that I'm really proud of.

The first sweater is made out of this amazingly soft fabric. Its the first time I've bought fabric with such a fabric that needs to be matched up, and I think it looks great! Only problem is the weather here is skyrocketing and the day I wanted to wear that was sweltering. Booooo!





The other is a shirt out of fabric I've had for about 6 years, and when I originally bought it, I had meters of it. Problem was I kept cutting it to make something, not liking it, and leaving it. This shirt was completely made of pieces cut from other pieces, haha! I'm happy to finally have something made out of this fabric.







If you want to see all my me made may stuff, you can see it here. http://www.tamedraven.com/search/label/me%20made%20may

comments and crit welcome!! Thanks for looking Smiley
27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Puzzle Pieces.. slightly pic heavy on: April 16, 2012 07:29:17 PM
I found a really cool silicon icecube tray at value village a few months back and finally got around to playing with it. I was happy to find out that resin doesnt stick to it so now I have all these fun puzzle pieces Smiley. Layers of resin with glitter, pigments and paint for decoration. Im not sure which one my favourite is.. maybe the last one.













28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Punkish chain and stud rings on: April 06, 2012 01:13:48 PM
I made these rings out of chains, stud and charms, and I love them! They're super comfy.





The only thing I dont know how to do is store them? regular ring boxes wont work because the band isnt sturdy to push them into it, but I dont want to throw them in a pile. Any ideas on what might look good?
Thanks for looking! Smiley
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mini Planet Pendants! on: April 04, 2012 12:38:57 PM
I made these pendants out of resin and I find they look like little planets, all full of clouds and smoke and depth. Once I figure out the technique a bit more (it's still really experimental right now..) I'd like to make some of our planets, especially earth.











C&C welcome, I'd love to hear what you think.. thanks!
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Oversized dress pants to skinny striped pants on: March 26, 2012 06:58:39 PM
I had an old pair of dress pants that were great quality, but way too big for me to wear. I restitched the inside to get rid of the flair, ripped the seam on the outside, reshaped it and then added the striped panel.







Thanks for looking!
