The maps dress is lovely, and it looks fantastically well tailored. Would you mind sharing what method you used for the bust ruching? I have such trouble with it, did you sew a straight line & gather it, or zigzags? Or elastic?
I'm not in this swap, but I had to comment on the design school one. I'm 16, and I have my heart set on a fashion college that is nigh on impossible to get into. I know I'm setting my standards high, and I'm probably going to get my heart broken, but I feel like it's worth it on the minute offchance that I do get in. I'm sorry you didn't, but I hope you still enjoy making fashion, even if it isn't professionally. =]
Purple and red glass bead bracelet. Fits my 6.5'' wrist well, with a little room (1pts)
Grey cabled neckwarmer, knitted from a 30% wool, 70% acrylic blend. It has no buttons for the time being, so I can add them according to taste
Birdie embroidery. I can make it into something small, (pouch or cuff maybe?) or you can have it as is as a patch. For more points (negotiable!) i could make it a feature on a bag or something. About 3'' end to end (1pt)
Custom-made shop banner or forum avatar, anything goes as long as I can find images for it! (1pt)
1/2 pt items
Earrings! All 1/2 pt per pair, remember to specify which in your claim PM
Lot of crochet flowers, circles and one granny-square. These were my practise, so they may not be perfect... (1/2 pt the lot)
Urgh, sorry about that. I swear it was legal though! It was an audiobook from audible.co.uk, that I thought was quintessentially english, called 'the uncommon reader', by Alan Bennet. I can't prove it's not illegal though, so no pictures I guess.
Heavily inspired by a previous poster (no prizes for guessing who!) I started on a lacy dress. It's definately inspired by rather than copying from, as I've used the lace quite sculptedly (haha, I invented a word too ), but thanks for the inspiration skarinja!
Anyway, my right boobie is done, all handsewn. I'm just hoping it fits me as well as it does the dress-form!
There was readymade magazine, sweetarts (not shown ) and other candy, postcards, stickers, a Bostonian mug and a Bostonite notepad. I think that's it, but everything scattered pretty quickly, so apologies if I missed anything!
Thanks so much octopusinclothing!
Edit: The photo was screwing up, so I've added a link instead. Sorry about that!
