I've been wanting a retro-styled sailor playsuit for ages, and finally pulled my finger out...



I drafted the sailor collar to a princess-seamed top pattern I use for just about everything, and used Butterick 5250 for the pants (moved the zip to the back).



Its made from stretch cotton sateen, and is my absolute favourite outfit at the moment! I was unsure about high pants on a bigger grrl - but who cares... I love them.

The workshop was run by UberServices in Sydney Wink. I recommend it!

you can't see my giant knee high platform boots with rubber spikes, but here is me with my girlfriend Cheesy. I made the skirt too.

The short story is I wanted to go a fetish party dressed as an evil-skull-cupcake - and needed to make an over-sized skull bow for my hair.



I used the air dry fimo and hand moulded it into a skull shape. When it was dry I used black eyeshadow and a fine makeup brush to paint makeup into the eye sockets, nose and mouth. Then hot glue onto a black bow hair clip.

So many great comments (my hair is a wig BTW! hehe) that I had to share.

You look amazing! Great job on the skirt. I really want to try latex, is there anything special I should know about working with it before giving it a try?

Some hints?
- dont ever sew it! Holes are not your friend. You need to use special glue (in Australia its called Art Cement) and clean the seams with Shellite before glueing them. Try not to get air bubbles in the seams as this causes weakness and you might have a 'blow out' hehe.
- take off a few inches of ease, as latex is meant to stretch

Thanks for the nice comments guys!

A few weeks back I went to a How to Work with Latex workshop - and we made actual garments! So exciting!



My first seam is not so great, but the next one is fine. Latex is so easy to work with, I couldnt believe it.

(my skirt looks high on one side because i'm standing funny)

Shiny!

Just quickly sharing my favourite skirt - I used New Look 6750, but just the skirt piece of the dress. The straps cross over the back, and its made from black stretch bengaline. There are two decorative black buttons on the front straps.

I think more versions are in the pipeline, its perfect for swing dancing!

I started to pick up 4, and then decrease 2 in the next round.
I think they were overly optimistic to say there would be no gaps - I had to go back later and weave the gaps shut so dont worry about it Wink
