I like the style and the idea, but I bet you would have an easier time constructing the dress/get a more finished result if you first built an under-dress (yours looks like it would be a simple strapless boned, fitted dress) and then draped the sash-y parts over it.

good luck!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baltic Mittens on: December 19, 2008 09:29:00 AM
I knit these mittens for my mom for christmas...they are called "Baltic Mittens," and the pattern came from a book, I think called "Folk Mittens..."

anyway, here they are. Knit in alpaca and silk on size 1 needles...



and the inside, because somebody always wants to see it for some reason:



I hope you like them!
P.S. They are extremely lucky mittens indeed, since I thought I was going to run out of the navy blue yarn...I think I finished with about a foot and a half! It was pretty scary...

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / shrinky dink jewelry...nature and biology on: June 02, 2008 09:59:41 AM
i always thought shrinky dinks looked cool, so i went out and got myself some of the inkjet kind. Worked great.

I made a bazillion necklaces...most will end up going to friends for birthday and other assorted gifts.

Nature Walk:


Galapagos Finches:




Biology Class:


Random victorian pieces, I ended up making a long necklace and a pair of earrings out of these.


The biology pendants, galapagos finches, snail and tree cross-section are all scanned from an ancient biology book my mom had when she was growing up. The antler is just from a photograph of a real antler, and the victorian images are from some free clipart on the web.

I hope you like!

Oh my god, that is PERFECT! I absolutely love it, it looks amazing on you and it looks like it cost $200 at a designer store or something. Seriously, fab.

hahaha yeah, theres supposed to be a massive tulle petticoat sewn into the skirt lining of the dress- I skipped it though because I figured it would be kinda impractical, and I could always wear a separate one if I really felt the need to have my skirt extend 3 feet on each side or something, lol.
