21  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.

23  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!

25  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

27  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Classy Little Blue TARDIS Dress on: April 08, 2013 11:26:12 AM
I've been costuming like crazy since January and just finished this "Sexy" this weekend.  The dress I made to use for another costume and realized it was a familiar shade of blue.  I bought a white corset, since it was cheaper than making my own (and faster).  I had some black ribbon trim and pleated satin trim in my stash that I used to accent the corset to look like the windows of the TARDIS.  I took 3" wide grosgrain ribbon and hand painted on the POLICE BOX info like a sash.  My headpiece is from the costume the dress is intended for, but worked double duty here too.

I'll post in a few weeks the costume that the dress is for (making the corset for that one still).

Thanks!  I don't usually costume "normal clothes" costumes, but I loved the whimsy in this dress, as a dress.  I didn't even know who Amy Pond was until New Years last year ('11 into '12) when friends insisted I looked like her.  I was curious and then ended up obsessed  Grin  Cool

Thanks everyone :-)

I guess I should have posted a reference picture as well since I'm sure not too many people know the dress that well... (THIS IS NOT ME)
