1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Paris Themed Prom Ideas? on: February 27, 2013 06:03:57 PM
I'm helping make decorations for our schools prom. It's going to be paris/french themed, I've started collecting ideas on a secret pinterest board if anyone has any suggestion that would be super helpful! We are borrowing a giant Effiel tower from other school and I'm fairly decent at sewing If that helps

Those are cascading ruffles (cascades?). Instead of gathering the fabric they are made by sewing curved fabric strips to the skirt if that makes any sense. Here is some links that might help.

I really like the way it looks, but wouldnt it get ruined really quickly just having comics glued to fabric? Its definately not something you could just wash or get wet. You should make this dress again in a fabric you really like since the first one turned out so well.

Well it's just chillin' in my basement for now and I've took it out a few time and seem to be holding up pretty well, but I don't plan to take it out in the rain

I was testing a pattern I got at a thrift store with a bedsheet. Afterwards I regretted using such ugly fabric on such a awesome patterns, so I did the only thing a normal person would do. Glue a bunch of comic books to it!

It took FOREVER for the gluing. Especially because it's a circle skirt. It's also super stiff. It has a chunky black zipper in the back so one can get out of it to. I also made a matching clutch because I had left over ribbon from the bow.

Now, to find a place to wear it....

Kind of late, but you could screw it to the wall upside down so it is a shelf with little weird tear drops on it.
If you get what I mean.

You know those pick of the week cards you get at starbucks? I have like 30 of them. I saved them because the have cool random band pictures on them.



Any ideas?

Can you get in and out of it?

Yeah. I didn't take a picture but there is zipper in back.

That looks so good. I wouldn't mind doing something like that but I don't think my skills are quite up there enough to figure that one out! Any chance of a quick tutorial for us newbs?

I pretty much did the same thing as in this tutioral,
but I made it shorter and reattached the ribbing to the new bottom.

9  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / PIKACHU! I CHOOSE YOU! on: December 21, 2010 03:29:35 PM
My local RiteAid has a small clothing section where there are always tons of cheap canvas shoes. I bought a navy pair unsure what do do with them. I was inspired by all the painted shoes on here I thought I might give it a try.







I'm not the most talented artist, but I'll fairly happy how they turned out.
And I swear, pikachu's eyes look better in real life. The flash made them look stupid.

Comments? Questions?

I used some genric fabric glue.
I didn't really matter, since it's not like it's going through the was or anything.
