12  Hug-Me shrug in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ichigo_Luv on: June 09, 2006 11:19:36 PM
I made this shrug for work.  I am contemplating making some more, because it is not too dressed up, but it has some structure to it that says "dressed up."  It is also great for the summer, since it is not too hot to wear, but keeps me from freeeezing in places with blasting AC.

13  Casual Jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ichigo_Luv on: June 06, 2006 10:55:22 PM
Finally, I have time to get back to craftsters!  I started a summer job recently, so between adjusting to that and my regular to dos, there is precious little time for anything else.  I did squeeze in mini-sewing sessions to work on M5058; a junior's jacket mattern from Mccalls.  I had some of my mom's left-over fabric from re-upholstering our sofa, so I decided to try out the pattern and work on my sewing skill and learn more techniques at the same time.  I was a little short on fabric, so I made the back piece into two pieces instead of one continuous one.  Now I match my sofa!  GrinUndecided   I am thinking about taking out the flaps. What do you think?
It needs to be ironed:  oh, please excuse the pj pants. Smiley

Instead of lining it, I bound the seams:

Thanks for the feedback ya'll!  Here is the thinking sketches I promised runningwithscissors: (warning: I am a new sewer also, so my "tutorial" might not make any sense.)



The top is three pattern pieces: front left and right, and back, cut 2nd time for lining.  Trace neck-line for borders; sew to neckline before attaching lining.

The midriff/tie is 2 long piece of fabric cut to desired length and attached right side together, then flipped right side out, and finish the ends.

The skirt part is made of 2 pieces of rectangular fabric, gathered and joined at the sides, then join the midriff to the skirt and then the two to the top.

The measurements on the sketch is for my dress so you would have to make your own measurements.  Sorry, if I am not being clear enough!

also as an option, i could make the image bigger and place a link here so anyone who wants to see it can choose to load it.

16  Don't laugh! (edited=less img) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ichigo_Luv on: May 24, 2006 09:44:47 PM
because that was the reaction of my sister, brother, and father did when they first layed eyes on this dress.  I saw a new dress pattern from mccalls:

I wanted to make something like it, but didn't feel like getting the pattern, so I made my own version.

back (I couldn't really tie the bow right by myself):

And...In color! (because that is what was silly said my brother)


any comments on possible modifications?

Thanks everyone! Grin

sweetpadee, Rhinny: the pattern number is M5007, I try to get them when they are on sale ($1 @ hancocks/joann) like the sale comming up at the end of this month @ hancock.


thelarsbar: the pattern is rated easy, and as I mentioned, it was pretty easy to make, except for the missing instruction on how to finish the sleeves, and what to do with the extra pieces...maybe I overlooked. Roll Eyes

For my second post, I completed a jacket based on a mccalls pattern. The instruction was pretty easy up until the end..I think they got lazy and left out some steps like finishing the sleeves and what to do with the two extra pieces they told me to cut out...but anywho here it is:

on me:

comments/suggestions appreciated. Wink

Mmmm.. what length is the skirt? I love the way you did it. Is there a tutorial or pattern or an easy explanation?  Wink

The skirt is conviently 44/2=22" with a 4" hem and generous seam allowances.  The skirt is basically made of two (or one, depending on your preferences) piece of long rectangular fabric, gathered at the top.  The waist band is made of *surprise* two pieces of rectangular fabric, cut to your waist size + seam allowances.  Zipper at the side the height of the band+ 1".  Here are some images to help you out:

gathered and connected:

the length:


Hope that helps! Roll Eyes

I made mine a couple of months back using the same link as posted.  The process was very fun even if it got a little tiring towards the end.  I used one jumbo sized roll of duct tape and 1/10th of another for finishing touches.  I had mine cut at the sides so that I won't be in danger of having "a scissor in my spine"! Cheesy  Mine is stuffed with 2-3 old pillow stuffing...in retrospect, I think newspaper would have worked better.  It is quite sturdy.  Here is an image of it in action.



I am thinking about making a shell out out nude spandex to make it look more tidy.
