i haven't posted in years! it feels nice to be back Smiley

these shoes were a test for a project i am going to start in art class (personal/independent projects) . i just wanted to make sure i liked the media before trying it again.

these first pair were my test pair:



bicycles! ink/white paint

my friend loved them and asked me to do her a pair...

cutting it out of a skirt won't work. your best bet is to make a pattern from a well fitting pair of pants. (there has to be a curve in the crotch area)

it should look something like this....
 

otherwise, the fabric around your thighs would pull inward and look ackward, and fit funny. 



that looks like what i was trying to draw hahaha. i'm an idiot. but i understand what your saying!

from a skirt it should be easy.
voila a tutorial:



hope that helps. essentially just cut a V down the center and sew up the sides together (right sides together of course.)
if you have any questions just reply to this or PM me.

5  vintage fabric + leftover tulle + polyester lining = 1 awesome SKIRT! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spoonerism on: August 15, 2005 12:57:23 PM
 so this is my second skirt ever.
It's a knee length flared skirt with tulle trimming the bottom, it has a thin polyester lining.

it attaches with a fabric tie, invisible zipper and hook and eye closure.

I am really impressed with this and how it came together.
it took about 2 hours in total to make
and i didn't use a pattern,  i just freehanded it.
PICS!
(i was all by myself when i took these pics, so sorry they're not very detailed.)






comments/criticism greatly appreciated Cheesy

6  doggy skirt :D somewhat image heavy? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spoonerism on: August 14, 2005 09:12:51 PM
alright. so i was inspired and i whipped this baby up in an hour or so.
it was such a simple skirt!
i'm quite happy about it, although it's a little too tight to what i imagined. i don't care though. i'm going to wear it anyway Cheesy
it's a simple A-Line skirt, with two seams down the sides, with slits. an elastic waistband.
i  called it my test skirt to another one i want to make. but i still love the doggys.


mirror view.

close up on the doggys. the colours are much more vibrant in real life.

sorry about the crap look on my face and my hair looks horrible in this picture.

i also just have to mention that i didn't have to pay a cent for the materials i used today (minus the sewing machine)
so now i have a new back to school getup!
haha, yes i am actually going to wear this on the first day of school (in three weeks)

comments/criticism are greatly appreciated.

8  Re: Duct tape dress forms (with tutorial) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spoonerism on: July 01, 2005 10:46:49 PM
this one is mine:

my friend who's holding it wrapped me :d
its attached to a hanger, i need to get a stand for it. the initial thought for it was for when my mom makes skating dresses ( i have a swayback)


the back is sorta weird tho, i used a garbage bag instead of a tshirt. it was fun but its a bit too loose... (in the chest part, i'm small to begin with but when i stuffed it it's sorta flattish now...) oh well. it's just 5 dollars on ducttape.

yours look great!

9  DUCT TAPE DRESSFORM!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by spoonerism on: July 01, 2005 12:24:15 PM
so thanks for the thread that explained the ducttape dressform.
my friend wrapped me, i was wearing a garbage bag. we did the stomach first, hip last and the bust (i guess) in the middle.
it cost 5 dollars for the roll of ducttape and i didn't use it all. i didn't know what to use for the stand so i put it on  a hanger. i'll get a stand soon.
all right, pictures.

just my friend holding it up.


wearing my shirt.


thanks for looking. comments/criticism appreciated.
