I was just wondering why all of a sudden the smilies have hats on.
I get it.
ANYWAY! I havn't posted here in forever - so get ready!
I realised I didn't do a post for
last year's greazefest outfits! I made a squillion!
Greazefest is a rocknroll festival held annually here in Brisbane. I love it so much. This year I'm going to have a stall finally! ((I keep saying it, but this time I mean it)). There's rockabilly bands, dancing, hot-rod show, low-brow art show + heaps of stalls. This year there was even a tattoo parlour in a caravan ((tres cute but god they were stuck up bitches!))
It goes for 4 nights + 1 day. The pre-party, the Sinner's Ball, the Greazer's Ball, the hot-rod show day + then the Afterparty.
It's alot of partying, but we were ready for it - and had outfits for every night
First I did two custom dresses for my favourite customer Amy. They are both strapless with half-circle skirts + fully lined Amy at the Sinner's BallAmy at the AfterPartyPre-Party
This is what my husband + I wore to the Pre-Party.
You've prolly seen the harlequin-print mini skirt before, but I reconned a Calabrese tee for myself + he had a matching bowling shirt
There aren't any good pics of what the other girls wore. But my sister wore the little bo-peep dress I made her years ago ((Still a winner, still the only one I've made!)) and our friend Leona
stole another dress I made.
Here's a pic from our waists up Sinner's Ball
We only made it to one ball. We decided to go to a local gig instead on the Saturday night.
We dressed up as sailor's and I made all of our outfits. We colour co-ordinated shoes + accessories too, unfortunately we didn't get a good enough pic of that!
I sewed little fabric bows to our sailor hats. I did attempt to make one, but it was just a little off so we bought them instead. Each dress is different. I'm going to get clearer pics of them this weekend actually so I'll put them up when I get them
The blue dress has a half-circle skirt, fitted bodice + a really cute neckline. I honestly have no idea what to call it.. trapezoid? It was a little low + leona's really busty so I added a little white cuff across the top. It's got a little middy collar.
We made little patches from fabric, interfacing, clear nailpolish + hotglue
for the backs of our collars. No pic of that at the mo either
they were banners with our names in the middle. (Y)
The white dress was a very low-cut wiggle dress. I was popping out the entire night - misjudged my pattern a bit i think. It was just plain white + a little scary since i never wear white!
Betty wore a little red sailor dress with black Jolly Roger buttons on the collar. Her dress had a pleated skirt and was shorter than the rest of ours. It kinda reminded me of Sailor Moon Hot-Rod Show + Afterparty
I whipped up a little one-piece shortie outfit out of slightly stretchy drill fabric. I didn't put a zip in it - I didn't have time! It was a bit difficult drafting the pattern because I was so scared it was going to be too short in the body! I've seen girl's wear store-bought ones + you have to be SO careful. lol.
Yep that's Rachikus with me in her own dress
The back. That's my sister Betty with the parasol beside me. We whipped up her high-waisted shorts out of teh same fabric as my jumpsuit. Again, no zipper, just wiggle into them! ahah. We didn't even finish the tops of them because we were literally sewing + putting on make-up at the same time that morning! She folded over the raw edge and wore a belt
This is what I made for Betty to wear originally on the night we were going to the Greazer's Ball. But we didn't go so Leona wore it on the main day instead. We dyed the same white ocelot-print fabric that I used in my motorcycle jacket
We dyed it green + i used it for the dress + Tim's bowling shirt.
The back of the dress had a tie - here's the best pic of it. ((She stole this dress too which annoys me
((Yeh, apparently most of the pics of the entire festival was taken in the toilets! ahahha))
And my favourite picture from the whole festival!
none of us have any idea what the hell was going on in that photo
