Hey everyone! I got a new digital camera for christmas
since my other one broke
and so I can now finally post pictures of a few things I made.
Today with the extra time because I wasn't working and with the help from my brother I made a duct tape dress form. It turned out well enough for my uses, though it could be better if I had someone helping who was more patient and I planned it out better.
The next thing is a tutu I made. I have wanted one for years and so I was having a birthday party for my 22nd birthday and decided to make one. It is made from black and pink tulle with blanket edging for the top (the silky stuff you put around fleece blankets). I chose to add the pink because the black I was using was actually decorating stuff used for halloween so it wasn't very comfortable, where as the pink was soft tulle from joanna's. I think it turned out really well except that it was too big
Finally the last thing I was able to take pictures of today was a circle skirt I made for over the tutu. I had a fancy formalish thing for my haus for the end of the semester so I started with a circle skirt and then with the help of a friend we pinned up around it to give it a cool valance look. I think it turned out well though I really need to work on it. I plan on adding a zipper and then the black blanket stuff i used for the tutu around the top. I also need to redo where it is pinned and then tack it, but overall I am happy with it:
Hope you all enjoy,
