This was made for someone else using their design...and I quite like it!! Cheesy
(Ignore my lame Halloween-ish photoshopping, hahah.)

Thanks so much!! Cheesy

The skull is a heat transfer image...I ironed it to some cotton fabric, then glued and sewed it onto the actual shrug, like an applique. I'm still learning the best and easiest technique for it. Wink

In the spirit of Halloween I made some gothic above-the-bust shrugs!

This one I made a skull heat transfer for the back and designed it like a cameo Smiley



Burgundy shrug with lacey sleeves


And finally a black shrug with corset lacing in the back



Thanks for looking! Cheesy

14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: When must you reverse image?? on: September 06, 2009 12:57:42 PM
Thank you for the help Techitoes Cheesy So, you have to flip it when there's text, that I understand.

What I still don't get is....must you flip the image regardless of what the image is/what colors are in it? I read that it has to do partly with the white in the image. I know the white fabric you're using acts as a white ink so to speak, so any white in the photo will actually be the fabric once you iron the image onto it. But, what if there is no white in the image to begin with?  Would I still have to reverse the image?

Sorry if I make no sense, hahah!

When using the normal/white fabric transfers do you ALWAYS have to reverse the image?

The images I plan on using will be full color and black and white. Some will have text.
So how do you know when you have to reverse the image?

Thanks so much ~ it's a simple question but I was having trouble getting it answered nonetheless! Wink

Lovely, I adore the faux sleeve look! Where did you get the fabric?

Thank you! I got the fabric at fabric.com, just search for "clergy brocade" and it'll be right there, they have lots of colors too!

Wow, thank you so much you guys! Smiley

my dear this is absolutely gorgeous!!! i absolutely LOVE the corset back!! i'm hoping you'll post a tute Wink i'd love to make one! (newbie seamstress over here otherwise i'd give it a go sans tute lol) love it!!
Well, I saw a similar design somewhere and attempted to make the pattern for it myself - and that took a long time to figure out! I'm used to sewing normal set-in sleeves, not mock sleeves, so it was tricky, but once I figured it out it is a breeze to sew. Just 4 seams, and then top stitching the trims. Wink

I wish I could make up a tutorial but I can't even begin to explain any of it, I'm terribly at explaining stuf. I'm sorry!

This is my latest creation, I would love some feedback on it! It's a capelet with *faux* gathered sleeves that add an extra sense of structure. I ruffled 9 yards of lace myself and sewed it around the edges and added corset lacing in the back!





As always, any feedback is very much appreciated, I'm always looking for new ideas! Cheesy
