Thanks again to both of you. Unfortunately, I haven't ever found thrift fabric in Las Vegas. It's sad. I never though to use old bedsheets though! I have several that my cats are just sleeping on! (And using them will give me an excuse to finially make use of that fleece and batting I've been meaning to make my furkids a bed out of....)

And please don't worry Mimsy, you didn't scare me! ^_~

I'll be sure to post pictures of my progress!

Thanks for your replies ladies. (Now if only someone would reply to my shoe topic...)

The reason it sounds so daunting to me is that I won't have the money to start on the gown until early May, and will probably only have the money to make the gown once, out of the good fabric. (Though muslin runs pretty cheaply out here...I could probably scrounge together some money so I don't waste the good fabric if I mess up!)

Thanks for the congratulations, CraftyCoug. I'm amazed it's been so long! Feels like only yesterday... (Time flies when you're having fun, right? ^_^)

And Mimsy, thank you SO much for the insight. I love the "EEK". I thought that too. >>; I'm a fairly advances seamstress, but I'm still terrified of gowns that look like this. Hell, I'm terrified of VOGUE. (I remember agreeing with someone's grandma. Vogue is more like "Vague".) Thank goodness my mother lives close by. She'll be willing to help. I hope.

I'll post my progress!

This is probably the most beautiful gown I have EVER seen in my life. But it looks like it's going to be absolutely terrifying to sew.

I mean, torture of "Saw III" proportions. >>; (Did anyone see that movie? That "Angel" device. With the ribs?! Ughhhh. I was scared for a week straight.)

ANYWAY. I would love to sew this for my anniversary coming up on June 2nd (eeeee! Has it been a year already?!), but am vary VERY daunted by the pattern.

I poked about on the internet to see if I could find a review, and I seem to be the only person who has an interest in this beautiful gown.

I will more than likely be making it with a nude underlay, and black chiffon over the top, with the rosettes made in black. (At least they aren't "fleurchons", right? O_o)

8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Want to reconstruct some shoes, but I have no inspiration! HELP! PIC OBESE on: March 16, 2007 11:14:56 PM
So. I cleaned out my closet today. (GASP!) and I found two BEAUTIFUL pairs of shoes that have details that I absolutely hate. A pair of black velvet heels, and a pair of black leather heeled sandals. And before you ask, yes. I did take pictures of my shoes sitting on the side of the bathtub.  Grin

I want to reconstruct these desperately! But, alas, I am inspiration-less. So, I turn to you lovely ladies and boys of craftster to help me! (As I said, this is pic obese. ^^; )

My first pair is the velvet heels. The shoes themselves are velvet, the heel is satin! SO pretty! They're only about 3" high, but it's the lowest set of heels I own, and you always need a set of relatively low heels.



Now for my issue with the damn things. You can see they have this ugly little pearl detail. It looks okay in the photos, but in real life these fake little pears are hideous. >>;

Also, these shoes give me toe clevage, which I hate.



The back of the shoes are black velvet, and I kinda want to leave this alone. It's in good quality. The front of the shoes is my problem.



You can see in the above pic there's a ribbon that goes around the back of the shoe, down to the sole, seperating the toe of the shoe from the rest of it. If it's possible, I want to tear only this front velvet, ugly little pearls included, off.

Any ideas are appreciated. ^^


My next set is the black leather heeled sandals. The lines of this shoe are gorgeous.



They stay on with these annoying little leather ties which cut into my skin mercilessly. And the inside of the sole where your foot goes is leather, so when it gets hot outside (and I live in Vegas. We're talking HOT HOT HOT.) my foot slides forward and half out of the shoe. It hurts!



The front of the shoe looks really really cool.



The top is pretty bad ass itself, with the crossing of the ties and all. ^^



Unfortunately, as you can see in the pics, the ties and such are sewn in under the insole, so I can't just tear that off to add different straps. I'll have to exacto knife them off or something, but then I have no idea how to re-attach them.

Also, they're a little worn in the front, so if that makes a difference, there it is.

I'm so confused. Help me out guys! ; ;

(Edited because i kan speel gud. ><)

Cutting out patterns is the bane of my existence.

I also cannot STAND pinning. I have developed quite the technique for simply holding fabric together when I sew so I can avoid the dreaded pinning!

Zippers suck. Cleaning up my mess sucks. Hand-hemming sucks.


Buuuuuut in the end, it's always worth it.  Wink
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Free pattern downloads!! Alexander McQueen, Galliano and Yamamoto on: March 13, 2007 05:13:51 PM
Does anyone know where I can get a link to the patterns? Especially that gorgeous Asian looking jacket! I've searched all over the website, and the "play.html" link in the OP doesn't work.

Thanks ladies!
