1  Roller Derby Quilt!! in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by soadchik on: September 25, 2008 06:28:56 AM
I'm posting this for Dreadnought of the Boston Derby Dames:

I'm working on a collaborative quilting project focusing on roller derby themes and imagery. I'm trying to get skaters, fans, and friends of derby from around the country to contribute squares featuring their teams, names, and numbers.

This quilt is made up of 8" x 8" squares representing all sorts of roller-derby related themes. So far squares dedicated to specific skaters, refs, teams, and leagues make up the bulk of the quilt, and it's growing pretty quickly. This is a great way to use up old uniform scraps, shredded fishnets, and other derby bits and pieces. I have a few images of the quilt-in-progress here:

If you break out in a rash when someone mentions the word "craft", I'd be thrilled for an old uniform scrap, or even your league name and number written on some fabric in sharpie. I'm even happy to make a square myself if you'd send me some old uniform parts or merch featuring team and/or league names.



If you are interested in contributing to the quilt, please email Dreadnought at da.dreadnought@gmail.com.  Also, check out her league at http://www.bostonderbydames.com!  And if you have time... check out my league, the Magnolia Roller Vixens at http://www.magnoliarollervixens.com!!   Grin

2  super easy retro styled dress!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by soadchik on: April 07, 2007 11:59:50 AM
I had a few extra yards on this really cute pastry fabric laying around... so I decided to make a dress with it.  I was making it to wear for Easter, but the weather has decided to be VERY unspring like.. so hopefully it wont be too cold.  I got a cute red cardigan to wear with it just in case tho!

I used mickncrispy's Shirred tube top tute to make the dress.  It's just a big huge rectangle of fabric (well two big rectangles b/c I added lining).  The pleats in the front are from an oops.. I miscalculated the stretchyness of the elastic and made it too big, so I added darts in the fron to take in the extra fabric.. and this created the pleats.  The belt is from a project on Simplicity's website.  I also made my dress tie like a halter top.

All in all the whole outfit took about 4-5 hours to make (lol stretched over 4 days because I kept procrastinating  Tongue)

Anyhooooo on to the pics!

9  Waist Cincher/Underbust Corset (first timer!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by soadchik on: July 23, 2006 08:40:30 PM
This came out WAY better than I could have ever expected!

So I wanted to try my hand at making a waist cincher.  I used a cincher that I already had and traced each piece on some newspaper to make the pattern.  I used some leftover fabric that I had and some plastic cable ties from the hardware store as boning (so that if this whole thing was a flop.. i didnt mess up any good supplies)  Anyhoo here are the results!  Smiley

back

my friend modeling it for me.



Im thinking about making some matching pasties (b/c I could soo see it on a hawt burlesque dancer!).. I might sell it on ebay or something.. the colors arent really anything that i'd wear.  I just used that fabric b/c its what I had around and b/c this whole thing was all a huge experiment.  Tongue  BUT!  Now that I know I can actually make a fully functional corset/cincher.. I can make myself one!!!! (it will cinch me in about 2 or 3 inches like it's suppose to!)  Grin  Anyhoo.. tell me what you think!  I'd also love some tips as I kinda just winged it through this little project.  Also would you wear it?  Would you buy it?
