21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Rockabilly Ruched Swimsuit on: September 21, 2013 06:00:04 PM
(Just noticed I hadn't been around these crafty parts of the internet lately...)

My Swimsuit for the Summer (An imitation of Pin-Up Girl's Marylin)





Honestly, if you're thinking about making a swimsuit, don't let yourself be intimidated. It's really not that difficult! Especially with the ruching style. Just make an underlayer/lining that fits snugly (use a panty/underwear pattern/style for the bottom part and just make it a longer piece all the way up to above the bustline). I put cups in the lining, as well, for support. And then the outside layer/shell is basically a tube with a bunch of ruching. Finish, add straps!


 I just tucked the back up under and sewed it to the lining for the retro shorts effect, but left it as the skirt in the front.

Bodice altered from Simplicity 4136 so that the built-in blouse is unnecessary and the bib and back is higher. Skirt from Simplicity 2401 with pockets. Since I used a plaid of limited yardage from my fabric stash, I had to simply serge the bottom of the skirt and add lace, because there wasn't enough fabric for a proper hem (or the skirt would be too short for my slip). Also, I had to cut the straps parallel to the selvage instead of on the bias (which would have given it the nice diagonal contrast effect like with the bands), but oh well...

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad you like. I just hope someone finds the tutorial useful, since I've gotten so much interesting stuff of craftster (and the internet in general), so wanted to make a contribution.

This is awesome!  If you don't mind, what bra size are you?  I am a DD, and wonder whether this would be supportive enough for me .. .   Thanks!!

This bra was a 36D. Sometimes I take a 38D (depending on brand/style). I think it's still going to hurt my neck a little (an issue I have with halter tops), but the cups and underwire are still there, so it feels exactly like wearing a bra (at least to me, who NEVER goes without). Hope this helps give you an idea whether you'd like to try it or not.

Wow! You've got an awesome stash of bed sheets. And that dress style is super cute!

Nice up-cycling. I love the graphics over the plain/subdued prints, and the fact that it's such attitude/creativity applied to what would otherwise be ordinary business wear (for mainstream society).

MARVEL ALL THE WAY!

I love sweet, feminine cut dresses in crazy novelty print. Cute and quirky! You're making me wish I went for some of the Avengers print last time I was in the fabric store. But it was a difficult choice between that and Star Trek fabric...

Gorgeous fabric and execution. Especially for whipping it off in a single night.

Congrats! You guys look great and very happy!

Love the asymmetrical zip! Very stylish!
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Wedding dress As Everyday on: May 25, 2013 08:22:34 AM
Wow! Amazingly well done! I love the way you cut the pieces (the tree/stripes are such a great print) and the fit is just great.

(PS Glad I found you over here. I wanted to comment on your blog, but the whole Google+ thing they're doing now sketched me out when I read the fine print of creating an account.)
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / DIY Rockabilly Halter Top (with tutorial link) on: May 21, 2013 10:39:07 AM

I designed this halter top to be built around an old bra.
