1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Peplum Dress on: February 24, 2010 04:28:48 AM
So I have this one peplum dress I wear all the time. This Friday for work I need to wear purple. So why not make a dress and use that dress as inspiration?! SO here's what I came up with! Also embellished a headband... So what do you guys/girls think? BTW, the belt i did not make... I just ♥ it

The fabric is most likely organza. To get the fishing line in the hem you have 2 choices:1, Use a serger to do a rolled hem and insert fishing line while doing the rolled hem. 2, do a zig zag stitch over line making sure that the zig zag is covering it and to the wrong side of the fabric. If you are opting for the zig zag method and are going to use a soft fabric such as organza or some other see thru fabric and your machine seems to "eat" the fabric you can use tissue paper as suggested or go for my preferred tool. End wraps. They sell it at beauty supply stores. Get the cheap paper kind. It's the paper used when they do curlers on perms. Good luck!

I am assuming you mean the curling ends rights? if so that is achieved by putting fishing line into your hem.

wow Love the skirt how'd u get it to be so puffy?

I Just used 3 times the width of the band and gathered it to get it that puffy. It's just cheap cotton fabric you find in the quilting dept.  usually JoAnn's will put it on sale for a dollar a yard.

So last weekend was the Spanish Festival in my town and I didn't want my smallest to just rock the regular "Puerto Rican" tshirt so I made her this neat-o outfit instead!  She loved it because it was very twirly. LOL! What do you think?

Hey i noticed you have Manu Chao! he's the bestest!!!

Yes, I used this opportunity to showcase some of the mildly obscure music in my collection.  Smiley Unfortunately I don't have any of Manu's other music!


His latest is La Radiolina which was release in Sept of last year. It's awesome! I know amazon has some of his cd's. I also have this great cd of covers of his songs by other artists as a tribute to him. PM me for more info.

hihi thats funny...i just bought that pattern yesterday.
yours looks great.
was it hard to make?

No it was pretty Easy. Finished it in 2 days. Just be careful when you piece together the collar. The first time i did it i had pieced it together backwards. It seems I always do that at some point.... LOL!

Wow! The eyes look so real! They look liquid! there's even reflections in it! It's awesome (albeit a bit creepy too) but awesome nonetheless that you could capture something so realistically like that. Good job!
