151  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first pleated skirt! Piece #1 of Daria costume done... on: October 07, 2012 10:09:40 AM
You may or may not be familiar with the once-popular MTV cartoon series Daria. I watched her when I was very tiny, and I always looked up to her. I've wanted to be Daria for Halloween for many, many years (almost put together a Jane costume in middle school). Well, I'm finally gonna make it happen this year. So this is piece #1, and I'll start working on the green jacket soon.

If you don't know her...I'm just happy to have finished this skirt, and I plan to where it for other occasions as well. I'm pretty danged proud of it, especially considering I didn't use a pattern. Just my head. This is also my first experience with darts, which really took some time. Things I don't like:

The darts are still a little bubbly.
The pleat-to-flat-band size ratio (I think I'll change that after Halloween).
The zipper bubbles out at the bottom (see first photo, right side, top edge of pleats-hard to tell). I think I can fix this when I resize it after Halloween. Right now, the pleated portion starts exactly at the end of the zipper. I'll later move the pleats up.

Thanks for looking!

Very lovely! That fabric is amazing! I definitely recommend getting the hook and eye in sooner rather than later (or never). I had a friend whose dress was missing them, and she had to really do some rigging to keep it from coming unzipped. This was her wedding dress, and it started coming undone 4 minutes before she marched out. Bridesmaids to the rescue! At any rate, you don't want your sis out enjoying herself and suddenly fighting just to conceal herself!

How neat! I've never even heard of a porcelain paint pen. I'll have to look into that.

You can also use a small blowtorch and sandpaper for feathering and shading. Try it.


Very neat! Thanks for sharing!

I'm also curious about pyrography, thanks so much for sharing this!

Glad you liked it! Feel free to pm me if you have any questions, but honestly pretty much everything I know on the subject is right here. Hope this opened a new crafty window for you!
