1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / My new drapey, polka-dotted dress/top! on: February 09, 2007 09:27:32 AM

Inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=139176.0, I made this! I really like it, so I thought I'd show you all!
I think I will make another in a heavier fabric so it can be closer to the original, and I'll definitely modify the shape a little, but all in all, I definitely enjoy it... 

I also made the dress underneath, which is basically a stretch jersey tube dress. 


HOPEFULLY THAT WORKS! Smiley Thanks for looking...
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Checked pants for The Curvacious man of a Curvacious Craftster... with details! on: February 01, 2007 02:13:01 PM
I made pants for my Mike!

They are a loosely woven wool blend in a lovely loud checked pattern.  These are my first successful pair of pants, complete with a zipper fly, button and button hole, and at least one functional AND attractively lined pocket!

The detail photos are on his dead computer, so more detail photos will follow, but I was so psyched to have these made and time to post a photo, that I figured I'd at least post the action shot.

Thanks for checking 'em out Smiley

and a link in case I didn't post the photo correctly!

Edit: Detail photos...

Sweet metal belt loops and keyholdermajig

Pocket lining (FUNTIONAL POCKET, thats right...) and Mike's wallet http://us.a2.yahoofs.com/users/45cca8c7zd21694a/45c4scd/__sr_/3c40scd.jpg?phIYXzFBtuXvZtOk

And finally, one more happy action shot!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Stretchy thread? on: October 12, 2006 12:10:15 AM
Hello oh craftsters-with-knowledge,

I am fairly new to sewing and I am wondering if you have any suggestions in regards to Stretchy Thread.  I sew a lot of jersey and stretchy-type fabric garments that can often be prone to broken stitches in vital areas despite double/triple stitching them.
So, right now I am using a poly, "heavy duty" thread and it has been pretty good, but I am wondering if there is something that has more give to it.  Is there such a thing?

I searched the forum and sifted through the results, but didn't find anything that was relevent.

If there is not such thing, perhaps some suggestions... I am sure there is a simple answer to this, but I'll need your help!

Many thanks!  Grin

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / dress and bolero-thing (recons) and sweater-vest for boyfriend on: July 08, 2006 07:30:42 PM
Recent creations, both of which I am quite proud! The dress is made of my boyfriend's old t-shirt, my sister's rejected tshirt and some purple scraps of ribbed tshirty material.
The bolero is reconned from a 70's, high-necked, frilly, too short, secretary-stewardess blouse.
They go beautifully with my new purple cowboy boots!
Anyway, without further ado:

and the super hero pose! Aw yeah.

Hopefully they work. They're not the BEST pictures, but you get the idea!

and last but not least, another addition:
the jolly roger sweater vest. I like how this turned out, so I must post it!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / snake/zebra/squiggle fabric hoody-top-thing on: May 08, 2006 11:44:58 PM
I have made, as mentioned, a hoody-top-thing, inspired by this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93661.0
It is made using betty_death's tutorial, with some improvising here and there Smiley

I think I've figured out picture posting (*crosses fingers*), so here they are.  It's probably the most complicated thing I've made, so far.

OK, nope, haven't figured it out.

here's the link again, in case anyone stumbles upon this:

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / a rockin' skeleton dress/shirt with a polka dot sash-Tshirt recon. Pic heavy on: April 20, 2006 10:40:22 PM
Hello all!

This is my first post...  It is a little-tshirt-big-tshirt-to-dress recon.  It started with a little boy's skeleton tshirt (the size of the little black tshirt, i didn't take a before shot!) and a big man's tshirt (identical to the bigger of the two tshirts).

It ended with a slightly too tight skeleton dress that converts into a long shirt.  It's meant to be cut at a slight angle across the top with only one sleeve.  The sash isn't attached quite yet and I'll be tweaking it - I just really wanted to post it!  

Hopefully the pictures work!

Striking a pose... can't see the bottom - but again, it ended up being a much nicer top than a dress, anyway...

The bow...

And a view from above so you can see the rockin' skeleton a little better.

I'll be back soon!  And I'll just post links if this doesn't work.

Comments are welcome.  Hopefully you get a decent idea of what I was going for with the pictures.  
Thanks for looking!
