1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help making patchwork shorts? on: July 29, 2009 10:37:48 PM

I've made lots of patchwork skirts and bags, but i've still never tried making pants =)

The ones I wanna make look like a shorts-version of this: http://www.peace-by-piece.com/alreadymadepants.html

I was just wondering if anyone had any advice for fabrics to use, how to hold them up (elastic, tie), even ideas on how to make awesome pockets would be appreciated. I've made pants before but not for boys... I can draft patterns but I'm considering just buying one to make it easier haha

I wanted something fun to wear this summer and was super bored over spring breakk.
Went into the fabric store and got the fabric with nothing in mind really, went home and this happened.

I made the long strips of patches, and then sewed those together. One panel actually has 2 pockets, but the bottom pocket is pretty impractical...haha. Made a simple waistband and that's it. =)

I made this in my independent study last year. :]
Drafted the pattern myself and all the beads and lace around the top are hand-sewn.
I'd love critique on it, good and bad.

4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Super Space Shoes :D...Lotsa Pictures~ on: February 11, 2007 08:23:38 AM
So I've had these shoes since middle school. I didn't like them back then 'cause they're really heavy. A bunch of years later, I can't stop wearing them XD
Yesterday I decided they needed something more though.. :]

This is how they started~


After the first coat of paint...


Ohhh Pucca's on n_n;


Finished~ :]
One is blue, the other one is gold. Later on I painted a heart on one and a star on the otherr, and used some extra neon paint to make little dots around the bottom.
