1  my big poofy red prom dress! PICTURE HEAVY! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by JanxX on: May 26, 2008 12:40:36 AM
This is the first thing that i made that looked like i bought. It turned out amazing considering i worked on it 2 days before prom and the day OF prom. I'm really freaking proud of it. I bought a dress weeks before. I only bought it because my sisters and mom were being pains in the asses so i just picked one that looked decent so we could go home ( we were at the mall for 5 hours). my sister talked me into getting red shoes (the dress was navy blue) for some reason i agreed. they didn't match at all (i told my date to get red so it would bring out my shoes). a week before prom i decided i hated my dress and went to the mall to look for a cheap one. there wasn't anything good. disgruntled, i realized "HELLO DUMMY YOU CAN SEW". so i ran down to joanns and spent roughly $65 on a dress compared to that stupid dress i bought which was around 170. GOOD DEAL. i didn't tell my mom that i was making a dress so when she saw me in it she was a little aggitated that i had a different one on i said i made it and i'm wearing the other one to graduation which is true. then she started screaming "what the hell?! it looks soo good blah blah blah" i got tons of compliments that night on the dress too.

hope you like!

2  HEMMING HELP! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by JanxX on: February 16, 2008 09:36:13 PM
I am horrible at hemming. I'm currently making a built by wendy top (4112). It has the makings of becoming a great shirt BUT when i hemmed the sleeves it looks all wonky. it flips out and it just looks ugly. like this (sorry for the bad quality):

does anyone have tips or pointers on how to make the hem look smoother and less bad?

4  HOLY SHAZAM BATMAN!!!! or gorgeous tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by JanxX on: July 11, 2005 02:41:27 AM
Wow, it took me a hundred-zillion years to figure out e-bay and how to post comments on auctioning live-journals. But now I'm here at the non-complicated craftster, my home. -sigh- ANYWAY, I made this cute tote, that I must be parting with. If any of you crafty girls are interested I'm selling it on ebay. ^_^
