11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A bunch of skirts and accesories on: April 17, 2008 09:15:16 AM
I'm on a sewing shedule lately as I'll have a stand with lolita clothing at the next anime convention on my city. Is going along very well if I may say it myself  Tongue I've been working with the skirts first, they're my favourite items! I apolodgize in advance as it seems Photobucket is being funny today  Roll Eyes





These are rather simple with full elastized waist and ruffles on the bottom. I made a matching headband for the second one:




The next two are made with japanese fabric:



Another fully elastized waist, this time lined and uncomplete yet. I still have to attach a petticoat to the lining.


I love this fabric! This skirt is more complicated, has partial shirring in the back and  an invisible zipper on the side. You can't see them very well but there are detachable waist ties (with heart buttons!) because bows in the back are lovely.

And here are two more headbands:


You can't see the detailing very well on this one sadly.



I still need to glue decorative trim on the inside of the headbands to cover the stitching.


The pics were taken for other purposes actually so I hope I can post action pics because really these don't make them justice  Roll Eyes
Wish me luck for the next items!

Thanks a lot for watching  Wink
12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Cute stuff on: March 15, 2008 05:05:57 AM
I'm more into drawing people rather than cute stuff, especially cute animals, but this bunny girl was in my mind for a while and I drew her last month. Few days later bear boy was born  Wink I love them and I want to draw more now! For some reason they don't look as good as the real size  Undecided Sorry in advance





I should ink them soon once I get past my fear of ruining them.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for viewing!
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Gothic Lolita dress for BJD on: March 10, 2008 03:30:42 PM
I finished this dress some days ago, finally I got pics of it today (my friend and doll's owner took them). I really like it even if I had to rip seams way more times than I'd liked to... but well, it looks like a dress and like I had pictured it which is good  Roll Eyes

I had to draft the pattern from zero, quite difficult as I haven't done patterns since I took sewing class (Thanks for already made patterns!). But is definitely easier than drafting them for people, I'm afraid I won't make so many clothes for me as before  Cheesy






I also made the stockings, headress and a pair of bloomers which, sadly, you can't see. But a lady never shows her underwear  Wink



I also posted some detail shots at my shiny new blog here:

I hope you like it!!
14  ASIA / Japan / buying beads on: June 24, 2007 08:21:55 AM
Hi!!! I'll be travelling to Japan this summer, I'm going to spend whole August there. I'm mostly a sewer but my sister loves crafting with beads so she is asking me to buy stuff for her.

I've checked the other topics here and found some directions for general crafts shops which I'll check. But can anyone point me to specific beads shops in Tokyo or Osaka, even Kanagawa?

My sister talked me about miyuki beads (can you find them in any store or are they made for a specific one?) and these stores: Kowa and Tokai. Also we've seen photos of a store called "Beads House Mammy" which looks quite cute and it seems is located in a shopping centre? I've found the adresses in her books but I can't read kanji yet T_T so any help is apreciated.

Also I would like to know about the prices. I know it's different in every store, but sth general like: x yens for these kind of beads and so would be great.

Thanks in advance ^^
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / crafty sister on: November 25, 2006 10:52:46 AM
Hi fellow crafsters!!  Smiley

Well, I already know what I'm going to do my mom this Christmas. However I'm stuck with my sister, so I need your help!!

She's a soon to be teacher; she's still a student though. She gives classes to little kids on the afternoons. Besides that, she's a crafty girl, she's been doing jewerly for 2 years now, she's pretty good and sell her items to a local store. She also can crochet, although she mostly use it to incorporate into the jewerly. She's classic, doesn't like bright colours, your average 24 years old except the fact that sometimes she can be like a little girl. I mean she's always watching cartoons on Tv  Cheesy  She loves bags and shoes, I don't want to make her a bag though since she already owns a lot (and I'm making one for mom).

Last year I gave her a box filled with incense items and a jacket; and the previous one jewerly supplies and a book with instructions. But this one I want to make at least part of the gifts, I'm a seamstress, and can do a bit of paper related arts and stencils too.


Any idea?  Huh
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / need help with big bags on: October 01, 2006 04:54:55 PM
mmm hi! I've been here for a bit already but this is my first post.

So far (concerning to bags) I've only made totes, some purses and so. I have that friend who is a bohemian and likes those big bags who look like sacks (is that the correct word?).

What I don't know if what kind of fabric I should use is a big bag and is has to be strong to carry lot of items. Also any tips and tutorials would be greatly appreciated!!


Sorry for my english
