121  Hello Sailor III:: A Pencil Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: October 11, 2006 01:33:41 AM
So here's another sailor outfit!

HURRAH!

The photos are crap, I'll get some better ones taken tonight, none of the photos of the back turned out.

Here it is with the matching bustier. I'll get individual skirt ones later.



((My legs aren't shaped like that! Lol, I was standing on the edge of the bath and trying to grip with my toes))

122  Daddy Was A Cannibal King:: Bustier in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: October 10, 2006 10:58:43 PM
Oh my god it keeps going! Yet another creation of that crazy girl who calls herself Max California.

This isn't my favourite. It's very cute, prolly look better on someone a size larger than me. It's a little short for my liking, but it's not like it's super short...

Panel-lined bodice with cheetah-print contrast band around the top and matching ruffle. Two thin stripes of cheetah print feature in the centre front. A seperating zipper does up the back with a little tie over it which features a poor explorer's shrunken skull...

Watchout, this jungle doesn't take too kindly to strangers.....


((this top does nothing for my figure. Trust me, i'm not that thick around the waist.. and those saggy pants don't help either Smiley ))








oh yeh, iHurrah...

123  Hello Sailor II :: A Bustier in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: October 10, 2006 02:59:15 AM
Alrighty, say hello to the little sister of the  Hello Sailor blouse!http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=125643.0;topicseen

Just a basic panel-lined bodice with a ruffle along the bottom, seperating zipper in the back, two rows of white bias binding and three little ship-wheel buttons! HURRAH! It's a little big for me in the boobage area, which is fine because then i won't fall in love with it and not want to sell it! Hahah

124  I need opinions on which font to use in Get Product and Website Opinions by SinDoll on: October 08, 2006 07:03:36 PM
I'm having serious issues trying to decide which font to use for my business name.

My label is 50's inspired clothing with a, well i guess you could say 'hardcore' edge to them. ((You can check out stuff I've posted up here to see exactly what I do))


Here's all the fonts I like::



Please let me know!

125  "Hello Sailor" sailor-collared fitted blouse:: Finished! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: October 07, 2006 08:27:40 PM
So I attempted to make a sailor-top a few months ago, it was very difficult as I didn't have any bias binding and used ribbon as the contrast. it looked like shit, but was a good enough toile to see what to do next time.

Here's the front. I was concentrating very hard ((i usually have my boyfriend to take the photos of me and i had to do it in a mirror))






The back::





This is the back. Before I put white bias binding around the edge of the collar. ((Look at my cute model Alice))



And here's a close up of the buttons!



All-finished!!!! Grin

EDIT:: So i wore it today, just to see how it would stand up. I have to seriously rethink the button positioning! Oh yes, it seems all very well and good to place the buttons evenly down the line, but my god! I have to remember to put a button level with the bust line, as this can cause serious gaping! So instead of taking all the buttons off and trying to fix the buttonholes ((pretty much IMPOSSIBLE)), i discovered a nifty idea that my boyfriend had suggested. He said I should put press-studs down the line to do the blouse up and then put the little buttons as falsies down the front. I was in Spotlight today, and coincidentally found some press-stud TAPE! HURRAH! So I've stitched the press-stud tape behind the buttons and their partners over the buttonholes. This mean the shirt does up opposite now, but i don't mind, it's only a toile!

HURRAH HURRAH HURRAH!

((But i know you guys thought it was perfect anyway Smiley ))

126  Leopard-Print collared shirt made from a vintage dress pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: October 03, 2006 05:46:38 AM
 Grin

This shirt was made from a too-big-for-me vintage dress pattern.



I didn't have enough material to make the skirt so i decided to drop the waist and make it in to a shirt. It was really hard, gave me a lot of grief and i stil don't wear it that often. The bust is still a bit too big ((i could take it in easily, but i couldn't be bothered)) and the shoulders stuck out too far. So when i tried to bring the shoulders in and reset the sleeves i went to the other extreme and too it too far in. So it still feels right to wear, but because i know all its faults i don't wear it. Silly Rabbit.






And just for good measure. My friend gave my rat Alice a bath today. She looks really spiky and scary <3 <3

127  Motorbike Jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: October 03, 2006 05:24:42 AM


I made this last lot of holidays from tafe. I went to visit my parents and stayed for a while. My dad got a new motorbike so I went riding with him alot. A few years ago at a garage sale we bought this awesome leather motorbike jacket that is a tiny bit too big for me ((it gives me shoulders like a a footballer)).

Inspired by that jacket, I found a pattern for a trenchcoat. Unfortunatelty i couldn't buy a cool metal zipper ((but have since found where i can get them!)) so I had to make do with a chunky plastic one. Anyway, I had to redraft almost the entire pattern and shift the zipper to an angle.  The thing is fully lined and pretty much reversible ((not that i'd be caught dead wearing a white flannelette motorbike jacket with black hearts all over it)). Heh heh

128  More Rockabilly Goodness!!:: Chicken Drumstick-printed Strappy Top ((7 Pics)) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: October 03, 2006 04:35:12 AM


Hurrah! I'm A rockabilly ((or maybe redneck)) machine! I just whipped this one up today. The fabric is the best part I think! Red quilting cotton featuring tiny little perfectly-cooked chicken drumsticks, some are so good they've had bites taken out of them! This top has a seperating zipper in the back, cross-over straps ((lovingly positioned by my very good-looking strap-positioner Tim)) and two big black buttons. I also ran a strip of cm-wide black bias binding around the top. It's a little funky in the shaping, but it was my toile, so I will learn Smiley.









((there's my shirt in action today. I wore it to tafe and after lunch everyone finally noticed that it was chicken legs, hehehehhe. Anyway,my cat likes it, and he is not a curling-up-on-your-lap sorta guy!))

EDIT::

here's the good-looking strap positioner. We were on our way to Greazefest and he hadn't had breakfast. He's the dark haired one.



((My friend made her boyfriend's shirt and I ironed the patch onto Tim's shirt... hehehe))

Here's a much better picture of him, He's very adorable




EDIT:: Oh yeh, much more flattering picstures Smiley

129  From Pvc SHORTS to a rockin Tutu *new pics* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SinDoll on: September 29, 2006 08:38:42 PM


I got given a pair of pvc shorts... shorts!   I know.   So i cut the legs off and added lotsa tulle. It's funny coz when i sit down for a while, then stand up, the tulle stays up and you can see my butt!

Hurrah!




I put this pretty lace ribbon the inside so the seam where the tulle joined the pvc didn't scratch my littl bare legs.



BETTER PHOTOS::



or one... lol

130  Circus Pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: September 29, 2006 08:26:12 PM
I don't know where the sketch is, but for my first day at studying fashion we had to just draw crap. So i drew a cute outift with a cropped tuxedo jacket and these pants. I'm the only one in my class that actually makes stuff and wears it. Kinda surprising, i thought i'd have competition.

Anyway, here's my circus pants. They make my butt look amazing!



I'll put up the sketch when i find it
