1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Empire Waist Empire Skirt on: June 25, 2016 02:47:29 PM
I have a ton of Star Wars fabrics in my stash and I finally got around to using one of them! All the white parts glow in the dark Grin I didn't use a pattern, I just kind of winged it.

2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Harley Quinn Cosplay on: May 18, 2016 04:07:22 PM
Motor City Comic Con was this past weekend and I went dressed as Harley Quinn. The skirt is a self drafted pattern and the top is a VERY heavily modified version of a vintage crop top pattern. The arm bands are made from a belt that I cut up and sewed together. I probably spent about 30 hours working on this since I went through many different attempts at the top before I got it right (this may be the most unforgiving fabric I've ever used).

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Star Wars Bomber Jacket on: March 16, 2016 04:52:05 PM
I'm a huge Star Wars geek so when I found these awesome velcro patches online I knew I had to make something with them. They glow in the dark too! Anyway, I go thrifting a lot and when I came across this leather jacket, I knew what had to be done Grin I bought the patches and hand stitched them to the sleeves.

Holy crap...what I thought was going to be a quick project ended up taking me three days. Sewing through velcro as well as leather is really hard on the hands Angry I'm extremely happy with how it turned out but no more hand stitching for me for a while unless it's something super easy Cool

Here's a picture of the jacket before I washed and sewed the patches to it
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Spring Pleated Skirt on: March 10, 2016 03:01:25 PM
I bought this fabric over the winter and I've been saving it for a cute little spring skirt. I didn't really have a pattern in mind when I bought it so I spent a lot of time trying out different shapes and sizes of pleats until I found something I liked. Somehow I miscalculated some of my measurements though and I ended up cutting off too much of what I thought was extra fabric! I thought it was ruined so I went back to the store to see if I could get another yard and start over but they were all out Cry Now that I knew this was all I had to work with I was determined to try to piece it back together somehow and salvage this skirt. I ended up tacking on some of the extra I cut off and hid the extra seam in one of the pleats. I felt like I had to have a Make it Work moment and I'm glad I did because I'm really happy with how it turned out. Grin Next time though, I'll listen to the old adage, "Measure twice, cut once"!

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gathering Leaves Shawl on: August 12, 2015 04:27:42 PM
I crocheted this back in 2010 but I never posted it here. I still wear this shawl in the spring/fall and I've taken good care of it so it's still in decent shape. It took a few months from start to finish. The hardest part was the brown edging. I had to do each row individually until I was past the regular pattern in green. SO MANY ENDS TO WEAVE! In the end though I think it was worth all the extra effort since I'm happy with the result.  

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simple Summer Skirt on: July 05, 2015 09:40:05 AM
I had this pretty summery fabric so I made myself a little skirt. It was super simple to make, I didn't use a pattern or anything. I just cut the piece and attached the elastic. Nothing better than a project that comes together in an hour Cheesy

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Help: 1950's Inspired Dress on: July 03, 2015 05:06:29 PM
I love all these super cute 1950's dresses I've seen online lately. I bought some really cute fabric that I think would be good to make something vintage/flirty. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for dress patterns where the top is similar to the one in the picture. Thanks! 
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Turquoise and Black Dress on: June 28, 2015 09:47:18 AM
I used fabric from two failed dresses to make this dress. This dress is super comfy, my only complaint is that the straps don't exactly fit how I wanted them to so I'll probably always wear this with a cardigan. It's not the fault of the pattern, more the fault of cheap fabric and messy sewing Cheesy The pattern I used for the top was this one from Lekala http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/5196#model The circle skirt was created using the circle skirt calculator here http://byhandlondon.com/pages/circle-skirt-app

This was painted using acrylics on a 16X16 canvas board. I had forgotten how relaxing it was to just sit and paint since it had been a few months since I'd taken the time to do it.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Black Dress with Bow Collar on: March 24, 2015 04:14:43 PM
I've been in love with the dress patterns on Lekala.co so when I saw this pattern I had to make it http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/4368#model. It was incredibly easy to put together and since the size is custom, it fit perfectly.

The fabric I used was an embossed suede. It was fun to work with and it's super comfy to wear.
