133  The Double Bass Project in Completed Projects by SinDoll on: September 29, 2006 07:50:28 PM
So my boyfriend, Tim, got a violent shove into Rockabilly-ness ((hurrah to me)) and has decided he wants his very own double bass.

We bought a plain 'shell' i guess you'd call it from Ilja Grawert ((a violinmaker in the Gabba)) for just under a thousand. It was bigger than we thought and more sturdy which is two good things!

Yesterday we went to Bunnings to pick out paint. Tim has decided to paint it gloss black with green leopard print sides. He needs more practice with his leopard printing so at the moment he's painting leopard-spots on my new flowerpot.

Anyway, he started the undercoat last night and has done the first coat of the black this morning. He loves itmore than me which is fine because then i can flip through as much craftster as i want!!

So far so good!

edit:: Tim would like me to keep updating this post as he goes along. he's pretty chuffed you all think its so good Smiley

134  For the Pirate Housewife who Loves to Cook... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: February 02, 2006 11:20:20 PM
Oh yeh.

i whipped this up last night while looking through old woman's weekly cookbooks. i felt like getting a little domesticated and learn to cook. But instead of heading to the stove, i headed for the sewing machine! You can't see in the picture, but there's a little black bow on the top left. I've been wearing this apron all day... heehee...

135  The Little Skirt That Grew up To Become A Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: February 01, 2006 06:14:20 PM
So this is a skirt my boyfriend tim made for me. It had a stretchknit waistband and a woven skirt area. He chose the material and figured it all out all by himself with only a few carefully-placed-pins from me Smiley

The skirt ended up being way to long for me, cute tho, i liked the way it trailed on the floor. But tim was sasd because he knewe it would get ruined. So i just took off my shirt and hoiked it up over my boobs. he liked that part! and now he's happy and proud!

He's a very clever boy and while I study fashion, he's about to study photography so we can make our dreams of a owning our own label a realiy. He's a darling and I love him so much.

138  A Tutu for A Wench ((who likes 2 show her legs off))((+ a tutorial of sorts)) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SinDoll on: December 14, 2005 12:24:26 AM

Well now, my first go at a tute, but i felt the urge. This here skirt is basically a short skirt on a yoke with 3 layers ((count them, 1, 2, THREE)) of tulle underneath. This one is a little short on me ((you can see the curve of my bum at certain angles!!  Shocked)) but i feel so wench-a-licious in it!

((i gave up drawing pictures of them. It was jus getting crappier))

1. cut out two yokes ((a)) of your fabric of choice. the yokes shoule be like squished rectangles, curving up a bit at the sides. Mine are43cm at the top, 46cm at the bottom and 13cm down the sides. Measure your hips, or wherever you will be wearing the skirt, divide that by 2 and add a seam allowance of, lets say 1cm. this is your top measurement. Now measure down your leg how far down u want the yoke to go (9this is how far the skirt goes bfefore it gets all pouffy)). Mine is 11cm but i added a 1cm seam allowance on each side. I just made the bottom measurement up, it just has to be a bit bigger than your top measurement.
2.cut out two rectangles ((b)) ((you can place this on the fold, or just make one giant rectangle)) of 92cm ((the length of your bottom measurement by 2)) by 17cm ((however long u want the skirt - don't forget to add the yoke l;ength onto your measurement so you can figure out whether your skirt is the right length))
3. cut out 6 rectangles of the exact same measurement of piece b ((c)) out of netting/tulle/whatever.
4. choose a zipper tha's going to be the right length, and insert it between the two yokes. I'm sure there are plenty of zipper tutes around here somewhere but if you need more explaining ask me an I'll do my best Smiley
5.with the right sides together of the yoke, stitch up the other side
6. Now hem the top of it
7. Sew the two fabric rectangles together up both short sides, right sides together ((like a giant tube)). Do the same to each pair of tulle nettings.
8. ow here's the awesome fun bitch hard part ((sigh)), it takes a little time. Place each tube of tulle inside the other, then place this big tube of tulle inside the fabric tube.
9. Pin the top together and stitch across it. This keeps it all together while you attatch it to the yoke.
10.Now grab the side seam of the tulle and fabric skirt and pin it with the right sides together it to the zip side of the yoke. Do the same with the other side seam of the skirt to the side seam of the yoke.
11. this is very difficult to explain. So here we go. grab the centre of one side of the skirt and the centre of the matching side of the yoke and pin. Repeat for other side.
12. Continue this until u have a nice gathered action going, keep grabbing the centre between two pins and match it up with the yoke and in again.do this until you have kind of like 1.5inch spacing between your pins.
13. NOW SEW!
14. Finish off your seams ((if you have a serger, or use a zigzag stitch if you dont))((my serger ran away Sad ))
15. You can topstitch the skirt-yoke seam if you like to finish it off, or just leave it the way it is

its for sale on eBay, i would love to keep it but i must sell things to raise money for serger ((i moved cities and my mommy wouldn't let me take her old serger... it was my best friend.  Cry...)) There's a cute cropped jacket to match it, but when i make a new photo tutorial of this, i'll do one of the jacket too... Hurrah!

I'll update this prolly 2mo with new step by step photos!
