271  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my very first HAT! on: June 26, 2007 08:36:30 PM
Hello everyone,
    The other day i was at the dollar store and I found a Fishermans Hat with great anchor fabric  ..I didint like the fabric at all for a hat but I wanted it to make some wrist cuffs and a patch out of it..so i bought it for the material . then before I cut if up I thought of My boy friends sister ( Linda) - She always wears fishermans style hats ..and she had just commented on how she liked some semi-asain cartoonish- fabric I had .. so I decided to take the hat apart by picking all the stitches and then made a hard pattern .. so i can keep it and make more .... if she likes it here it is my first attempt at a Fishermans Hat.

Warning .. I don't look good in hats !

here is the pattern and original hat

I lined it with the same fabric

here are some close ups .. modeled by mt latest severed head.( she dosnt have a name yet, and she came with the lovely marker tattoo and half an eye ! )

I also sandwished a layer of thick fabric in the brim for more stability..

This is my very first ever attempt at hat making so Id really really love some feed back .. All openions and suggestions welcome..

If she likes this one I'm thinking of making another out of really nice brocade..
thanks for looking
 Have a great night/day

 Here is  You guessed it another corset .. but I'm really kinda proud of this one ... Its my first time working with real leather .. and it happened on accident along time ago I got a nice leather jacket on sale for like 12 bucks.. it was great but then my dog ate half of it  Angry Sad ... But the other day Hobby Lobby was having a huge sale as they often do.. and I found this awesome cowbow/southwestern print bandanna ...for ONLY 23 CENTS  !  Grin I wanted to make a corset with it , but it wasn't quite enough ...  Huh so flash of Genius .. and I think of the leather coat SO I put the 2 together ...
 Also I made the matching bracelet & bolo ( it still needs beads ) and i reconed the Hat ages ago ....( plain hat + spray paint + patch and piercing .... and alot of bending ! )
any way without further ado .. The Cowboy corset

the back ( I acually made it a lil big .. so Ill prollly add straps )...and you cant really tell in the pics but there are 2 rows of boning in the back aswell

close up of the fab bracelet

and close up of bolo

Thanks so much for looking .. and as always I value your comments  Smiley

Have a great night /day

Hello everyone ...
 Awhile ago .. I bought some cool pants ...after one washing and drying they shrunk ALOT ! so I cut of the too short bottom and made Capri's ... BUT after another wash and dry they continued to shrink and shrink and shrink...... so I decided to put laces up the side...

But ... Now I'm wondering ... DO THEY MAKE ME LOOK LIKE A POT ROAST/ SAUSAGE? Id really like some openions before I waste time doing the other leg ....
 so please please .. let me know ... Should I finish ? or is this a piece for the scrap bin ?

original tight leg

reconed lace leg

Also I plan on using something else for the actual lacing .. but what you see is what I had on hand ...

Thanks for looking ! Wink and please help ! Grin

Have a great day

Ok .. apon everyones advice I decided to finish them .. I used thicker lace and did the tie/loop twice around each gromett methood.......Here is the finished pair... do you like ?

276  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pin Stripes , Lace and Fancy Red Snapps ! on: June 09, 2007 10:47:11 AM
Hello ,

    Here is a quick little skirt I whipped up last night ...it is for some reason super hard to photograph....its grey and lighter grey pin stripe...I decided to keep it pretty much flat , but with a little pleated part in the front ( similar to a skirt I already owned )...I was gonna go puffy with it .. but the pinstripes demanded something a bit more sleek ..and I didint want a plain mini ... so this is the compromise.. Cheesy Wink any way I was also going to just hem the bottom plain .. but when I realized I had such Awesome red Snaps I decided to add the red lace at the bottom too .. any way thank you for looking and please tell me what you think ... oh also the waist of the skirt is lined with cute ghost fabric and the bottom is 2 separate layers of the pinstripe .. because it was a lil thin...

 close up of the pleaty part

Close up of the cool red Snaps

Thanks again for taking the time to look...
 Have a great day

P.s. sorry for the not so great pics . and honestly the skirt dosnt look so splotchy and dirty in real life
277  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Roller derby Skirt on: June 06, 2007 06:22:24 PM
Hi everyone ...

The other Day I saw this really cute post from Cerrieocity Kills http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=173400.msg1782253#msg1782253
thees awesome camo and pink aprons for her roller derby team to raffle ... well I thought they were really cool ... 2 days later and I'm at Wal-mart and see a scrap of pink silk and a scrap of pink camo in the bin ....... so i figured why not ...So here is my skirt version ....

It has a cool diagonal zipper ...

I'm proud of my self for actually making the silky trim ...

 And I did a distressed pink camo Skull and cross bones on the back .. inspired by another craftster ( sorry I cant find the post ) or Id credit you ... Embarrassed

Thanks so much for looking .. please let me know what you think ...
and special thanks to Cerriocity kills ... for the inspiration

does it need more embellishments?

Have a great day
278  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / rushed, puffy, lace, gothic.... on: June 04, 2007 12:51:45 PM
Hello everyone  Smiley

First off ... "Yes" I did get my Hair cut ! lol its a big deal for me .. ( first hair cut in 11 years)

Any way on to the sewing ... Here is A quick skirt I made .. using red sheers and a lace curtain panel .. I think it looks kinda Victorian Goth to me ...Its not very practical for everday .. but it makes for good pictures and I'm sure it will come in handy as some sort of costume ...
I used the drawstring method for the rushed part in the middle of the front and back .. so its adjustable too ... Also the Bows are just safety pined on for now .. because I think the shade of red is wrong .. it needs to be closer to the color of the waist band .. But the only red lace I had on hand is what you see.. there is also black lace in the ribbon but its kinda hard to See against the  black... Any way let me know what you think ...

Oh yeah sorry for the excess of pics .. Me and my Auto Timer had a fun fake Photo Shoot today lol Cheesy

close up of the rushing detail

here it is on my dress form .. so you can see the bottom better

oh and hte shirt Im wearing is not the one I intended to .. the other one is way cuter but I couldnt find it ....

Thanks so much for looking
As always Have a great night
279  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HULK recon on: May 29, 2007 01:35:52 PM
Hi ,
 This is  recon a did a few years ago actually .. but I never have posted it for some reason... even though it is one of my very favorite shirts .. Well I was wearing it the other day and decided to get a few pics...this shirt is extra cool to me because it was originally given too me by the really cool five year old son of one of my best friends .. and now they moved and i hardly ever get to see him  Cry

any way I also love it cuz it gives the illusion of abs !

and me doing my famous Hulk pose that I do all day long everytime I pass a mirror when I'm wearing this lol

like I'm riping outta the shirt lol

thanks for looking

Have a great day

280  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / little Jungle corset skirt on: May 29, 2007 12:59:44 PM
Hello ...
 Here is a  very very short .. riskay skirt I made outta some really cool multi animal print curtains I found at a rummage sale ..any way ... Sadly Sad I am way to pale to pull it off... I think it would look so great on a dark chocolate or mocha skin tone ... but on me you can hardly see the fish net trim at the bottom ....

Anyway .. here it is .. although Ill prolly never wear it .. oh the top i have on with it isn't the greatest either

Oh know its  quite skimpy .. but it wasnt meant for " public " wear ...

that being said Id love openions

Have a great day
