i'm really pleased with how my prom dress came out. i modeled it after one that was 300 dollars, mine was 30 and i like it just as much.
i didn't use a pattern, but the skirt is a circle skirt, because thats really the only kind i can make that don't look dumpy. the blue is organza, the white is silk. i was dying to buy some of that silk forever and never had a reason, until nowww.
and my dress, which i did change quite a bit, just for my taste/preference.
i had just a plain black velvet skirt with elastic that was wearing out, and i needed a dress for a winter dance. soooo
i hitched the skirt up and then took a strip of white cotton and wrapped it around, tied it in the front and pulled it through the middle of my boobs for the shape of the top. sewed that on.. then i sewed a bra into it, well sort of, but just at the end of the front straps, so then i had straps and they match alright, becuase both are black. it worked out alright, and no one will notice, so allll's good.
here it is. god knows what my face was thinking when i took this. umm so just ignore that part
I have a basic long sleeved shirt that I want to make into a shrug/bolero/tie front/cropped kind of top. you know the ones i mean...? i want to keep its long sleeves also. is there an easy was to do this without cutting it up and sewing it back together a ridiculous amount of times?
For Halloween I'm going to be the Morton Salt Girl, and I decided I wanted to make a purse out of a salt container. Before I started though, I wanted to see if you guys had any brilliant ideas or suggestions, becuase you often do. Thanks!
I absolutely adore scarves and recently learned how to knit, but now as it's summer I really can't wear them or I would end up melting into a puddle, and we all know that wouldn't be good. But I see more summer-y, lighter scarves in stores and such, and was wondering what kind of yarn, ribbon or whatever one would use to knit one of those. Or would you even knit it?
...........Sort of like this one I suppose. Not exactly, but you know what I mean??
Here's a journal I made from this amazing paper I found at a rubber stamp store. It has a keyhole type thing on the side. Eventually I will bead the rest of the strings hanging out. I have a bit more of the paper left, any ideas on what to do with it?
So this isnt a finished quilt, but its a square I had to do for my art class. We will all put our peace quilt squares together when school resumes, but for now I wanted to show mine...I like how it turned out. I was thinking of putting a window in it, but I'm not sure if I should. What do y'all think? I'm leaning towards no window.
