Thank you so much everybody!!! My friend does plan to wear it out and about, so I think as long as it was styled correctly it wouldn't seem costumy. Another detail which I forgot was I used the zippers from the sides of the pants down by the feet to attach the front and back on either side. She has a small waist and big hips and carhartt doesn't stretch, so she can unzip those and put it up, and zip then back up and it fits snuggly at her waist again. I definately think you could do a childs version, especially if you had two pairs of pants to work with. I managed to get it out of one pair because she got them in mens sizes and they were huuuuuge. But i did use every last scrap of fabric but one. In fact, I am editing this so there is a side shot with the zippers.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Carhartt Dirndle on: May 22, 2012 06:57:25 PM
Hey everybody! Well my friend was entering a relay race, and it was constume themed. She runs a brewery, and the town we live in is a scenic german themed town. She wanted a St. Pauli girl type of outfit, but more like Icicle Brewing Company girl. She came up with the idea to make a dirndle out of carhartts and enlisted me to create it for her. She also gave me a regular flannel which I made more like a dirndle top. I also made a petticoat to wear underneath the skirt. I literally had a 10x3 scrap left over from the carhartt material and that was it. We got a mens size L overalls. The front fly and pockets are fully functional.  Please tell me what you think?

I edited this so I could add this last picture. There are zippers starting at the top of the skirt on the left and right side and they unzip all the way down to where the skirt meets the ruffle. This was so it could still be a tight fit on the waist, but could also become large enough to fit over shoulders or hips to get it on and off. The zippers were part of the carhartts as well. They were on the outside of each pantleg, at the bottom. You can just see a hint of the zipper, but I realize I don't have very good side shots, and the dirndle now belongs to my friend, so I had to make due.

This is soooo sick. I love everything Mario, and the egg elbow patches and hood liner was such a clever idea.

I am so glad to see you with everything! I love your disney pose. All of the bows look so good on you. I am bummed about ol' octopus, but I am glad you were able to reassemble him. I am glad you could get a good picture of the bracelet. The colors are so beautiful and my camera was horrible and couldn't catch the true colors. I am so excited to see Tardis in action! It looks so adorable hanging up!

Thank you. That project was the first one started and the last one finished. It was soo much more time consuming that I originally expected.

Hey everybody. So my package for Sarah-Beth still has not arrived unfortunately. I still have hope that it will, but I am going to post pictures of what I made.

The first thing is a pin cushion. But i sculpted an octopus out of clay and then painted it, and the pin cushion is the gold part. I bedazzled it massively, and all of the suction cups things on the tentacles are bedazzles. I also added some real sea shells I picked up off the beach at the Oregon coast. (Two of the legs accidentally broke off when I was painting and I feared if I glued them back on they would rebreak and rattle around while shipping and possibly chip it, so instead I wrapped them up individually so she could put it together when she got it safely and I'm so sorry that happened Sarah_beth!)

This is a wall organizer. It is supposed to look like the phone booth thing from Dr. Who. Each of the little box shapes and the windows on the phone booth are pockets. The phone booth itself is also one large pocket. And you can't see because it is hanging behind the chair, but there is a strip to hang on a hook. The shape on the top is kind of folded back too in this picture, because the top is really more true to the real shape of the phone booth. The lining is also different in each pocket.

Next I made a matching bracelet, pendant, and earrings. Sarah_beth told me her ears aren't pierced so I got clip on earring things. They glitter so beautifully, but my camera isn't great, so it does not capture it.

I  painted a box and put those inside of it. Unfortunately I did not get great pictures of it. The top just wasn't finished when I took this.

I sent a patch of Jasmine's face from Aladdin, which I didn't take a picture of.

I made these little black arm warmer things. She had something like them on her pintrest. I made the bows out of lace, which unfortunately you cannot see well in the picture, because they are really dainty and cute.

I also wrote a haiku for each individual piece that I made and wrapped each them up with the corresponding craft. A couple of the things have more than one haiku though, just because I couldn't decide.

I am pretty sure that is everything. So, Sarah_Beth, I hope you like everything and I am still confident you will be getting them. You were the coolest person to craft for.
