11  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Game of Thrones - Sansa Stark on: August 11, 2013 06:33:02 PM
This was my version of a Sansa dress.  It isn't any one specific gown from the show, but rather something I came up with based on what she wears and how the dresses are patterned.  
I started with McCall's 4491 costume pattern as a base.  I modified it like crazy by adding seams, making the back closed, changing the neckline, making my own sleeves, and making the front a robe style front instead of solid.  It was a good starting point for my own idea.  The skirt was lengthened by 3" to accommodate my long legs (I'm 5'7"), otherwise it would have been way too short.
The front and the sleeves are trimmed in a burgundy piping to coordinate with the dress fabric.  It has a scarf that goes along the bust-line and down, as well as a petti-skirt for body.
The Scarf is just one long piece of shantung that goes to the floor and simply drapes around the neck.  It is pleated the whole way down for a cleaner look.  
The pettiskirt took me 30 minutes to make.  It's a 3 yard long rectangle that is the length of my waist to floor (42" in my case).  The top edge was gathered and then sewn into a waistband.  It closes in the back with a hook and eye.  The bottom edge is simply serged to keep it from fraying.
The little bees are a stand in until I can find nice enough dragonflies, or make my own.

This is pretty epic! How long did it take you to make this?
Thanks!  It only took a weekend to complete Cheesy  It was mostly done in the first day, but I hate hemming/hand sewing, so that waited until the next day.
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Long Chiffon Prairie Maxi Dress on: July 05, 2013 03:52:41 PM
I was bored today, so I made this Smiley  I got to leave work early, so I went fabric shopping.  I then got home and put this together in about 4 hours.  
It's a pattern I made and had used before for another dress, so I changed it up a bit to make it maxi dress instead.  I loved the print on the fabric, with the detail on the selvage edge.  It still needs to be hemmed, but otherwise, it's wearable Smiley  I have a slip dress I wear under this, since it's sheer lol
EDIT: I added a "belt" to it and hemmed it.  I added a photo of me wearing it, since the dress form doesn't do it justice Cheesy

I just had a photo shoot a few weeks ago with this dress.  My friend just posted the pics as a tribute to Independence Day, so added a few to the main post  Smiley

Thanks!  I got a chance to wear it out to work and it was a hit, even with people from the other office on our floor Cheesy
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Aloha! Hawaiian Summer Dress on: June 08, 2013 01:39:21 PM
This was something I just whipped up this afternoon.  I want to try and wear dresses all summer, and I have a lot of fabric laying around Smiley
I bought this fabric while on a quick layover in Hawaii back in January.  My friends there took me to the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet to get my souvenirs.  It was a TON of fun and I came home with so many goodies for very little money.  This cotton fabric was a 4 yard piece for $10!  The pattern was a heavily modified version of the Vogue V1094 pattern... it doesn't really look a thing like the pattern lol ( http://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/87378 )
I also made a sash that ties around the middle, but it's hard to see in the photo.

18  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Doctor Who: "Idiot's Lantern" Rose Tyler Dress on: April 28, 2013 10:34:42 AM
This was a dress that came about due mainly to my love of 50's dresses.  Mix that up with my love of Doctor Who, and it was made to be! 
The dress was made using the same pattern as the blue TARDIS dress, but modified in the shoulder area.  I used a Duchess Satin and a silk crepe embellished with the perfect pailette sequins.
I got a chance to wear it out at the Brooklyn Sakura Matsuri festival and then to my favorite TARDIS bar, The Way Station!

20  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Captain America Cocktail Dress - Inspired by Art on: April 21, 2013 10:57:59 AM
The original piece of awesome art was made by Kelsey Michele on Deviant Art (http://kelseymichele.deviantart.com/art/Avengers-Gowns-Thor-and-Captain-America-305808542 ). She used The Avengers as inspiration, by turning their costumes/looks into gorgeous evening wear. Of course I fell in love with Cap's 50's style cocktail dress.

My main goal for this dress was to be able to wear it as a dress, and not let it become something that looked like a costume only. I wanted it to look like fashion. I used a royal blue Duchess Satin and a Royal Blue poly chiffon. The chiffon was a bit more purple in hue than the satin, but once laid over the satin, it looked more blue. It's actually nice to see a color shift of lighter blue under the darker chiffon as the dress moves.

I started with Vintage Vogue pattern V1094 as a base. I was going to make this a back zipper dress, but after looking at the pattern and seeing finished dresses, this design is better suited to the original side zip the pattern calls for. Instead of making the lining layer 4 panels and the chiffon layer in 6, I made the whole thing in six. I serged the top edge of the layers together, and then box pleated the entire waist line. The original pattern called for gathers, but I felt the pleats looked better and more polished.

If the dress looks familiar, it was also the dress I used for my TARDIS gown... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422454.0#axzz2R3u3sveR
