1  advice on dress... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by smelkie on: June 18, 2004 09:51:46 PM
Okay, so I was inspired to try my all-time first dress tonight, and I even did it without a pattern. I went into the ordeal fully expecting to create something horrifying, but the dress turned out surprisingly alright.
Here it is, in all its glory:

The only problem is, I used some boring ho-hum red fabric because I was planning on tossing the whole thing at the end of the night. So now I have a question: what should I do with it? It needs something to make it a little more interesting... straps? ruffles? stencil? Ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a ton in advance! : )

2  wire hanger mobile in Completed Projects by smelkie on: June 03, 2004 08:39:22 PM
Today I became suddenly overwhelmed with the abundance of neat pictures I have lying around my room and with the lack of space in which I have to display them. I whipped this up in a few minutes - I'll put little pictures and post cards in the clothes pins hanging at the bottom. This certainly isn't my greatest accomplishment, but I thought maybe it would spark some ideas for some of you! I think the creation of the mobile is pretty straight forward, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I just made one tonight! I didn't dare attempt the messanger bag, because it looked pretty tricky. I tried out the little purse, and it turned out alright - definitely not as cool as the one in the mag. I only had lame bags to work with, on top of it all, but I thought I'd give it a whilr. My main complaint is, I guess, that it still just seems like plastic bags - I don't know what I was expecting... but, well, right. That's my two cents worth - anyone else given them a try? Oh, and let me know what you guys think - do I have a lame bag here, or am I being too hard on myself?

Ps I think it might be cool to make one out of all 'Thank You' bags... just a thought.

4  skirt and halter top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by smelkie on: May 20, 2004 11:19:33 AM
Hi everyone! This is my very first post - go easy on me! This morning I woke up early with a hankering to sew, and this is what I made:

This skirt was inspired by Thrift Store Love's tutorial for the rockin' polka dot skirt - mine has bigger pleats because I didn't want to have to iron quite so much, hehe.

And then I made this little halter top out of two shirts that I don't really wear at all. The main shirt is a Madame Butterfly shirt that I bought at a thrift store despite the fact that it had nasty pit stains - but it was so cool! Making a halter top was the perfect pit-stain fix:

Anyhow, let me know what you think!

Bye <3

Ps I hope the pictures work! I've got my fingers crossed.
