OK. first up a shirt i made this weekend. for some reason i had in my mind that this fabric was really thick and soft and planned to make a hoody out of it. then i took it out of the bag and... it wasn't. so it morphed into a little summer shirt thing. it's the kind of thing i see in the store and think is cute, but i don't buy it because i know i could make it... and then never get around to making it.
i started out with some random hoody pattern, i think it was burda, but it has been changed beyond recognition. made the sleeves short and puffy, made it fitted, added a band on the bottom, and made the hood HUGE. ANYWAYS pictures:
me in the shirt. looking flossy.
please ignore the heinous state of my house in these photos. we're remodeling.
with hood up.
this one is a bubble skirt i made with cute fabric i got from value village. it's thin quilting-type cotton. i've been told by several people it looks like a couch, but i think it's cute!
me in skirt
me in skirt after my mom told me i look boring with my arms hanging down.
detail of fabric and bottom edge. it's hard to tell because of the fabric, but the bottom where it attaches is twisted to the side.
and this is a dress i made for my cousin's wedding a few years ago. it started life as a vintage skirt, but it was very tiny and very long. i made a basic strapless dress from similar material (black linen blend) and hand stitched the crysanthemum pattern on.
thanks for looking!
