1  Convertible dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Haloofsoil on: March 10, 2012 11:02:44 AM
Heya,

I bought some cheap satin print fabric ages ago and decided that I wanted to make a Kariza style scarf dress because I'm really into convertible dresses (I've clocked up 4 infinity dresses and I fancied a bit of a change).

I'm quite pleased with this one and I think I'm going to wear it to a friends wedding this summer.





I didn't have enough fabric for this one to make it the same way as the red one, so I improvised a little. I'm not really sure how I feel about the front, but I do love the fabric. Please excuse the frumpy-ness; the ribbon is a little bit thinner on this dress so it's much harder to tie. I should probably wear a belt with this one two.





Also, I thought I'd throw in a pic of my favorite infinity dress in dark purple; I managed to get really good quality lycra for 3.50 a yard. I now have masses of the stuff.





Thanks for checking out my dresses, hope you like them. Smiley

2  Coffee filter roses and a silly hat in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Haloofsoil on: May 01, 2011 04:59:25 AM
Ah, I hope I've put this in the right place!

I've been lurking for some time and I've become a little obsessed with coffee filter roses; everyone's is just so pretty. I thought I'd use the royal wedding as an excuse to make some and I made myself a cheap wedding hat for a friends British tea party. I made a Union Jack dress to match, but these roses were way more effort, lol.

I think next time I'll have more patience and search out bleached coffee filters... None of my nearby supermarkets had any... I'd also not paint them unnatural colours. Incedentally, does anyone have any painting tips to make them look realistic?






Thanks for reading Smiley
