91  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / gaudy attempted skirt on: November 15, 2006 08:21:51 PM
I tried making a skirt based on a skirt i already had that fit really well and looked very simple. the original skirt didn't have the binding stuff at the bottom but i have a love affair going on with binding for some reason... there was more detailing around the waist but as the photos show i was having issues with fit and the waist already so i'm calling it done for now. i might go back and try to fix it but people are making fun of it and calling it Old Lady Fabric. ahck

this is it with a shirt convienently hiding the waist-



this is one where you can see where the waist kind of gaps. i think i'm going to try and take it in some.. there are side seams where i can try... except what you can't see in the pic quite so much is how tight it is in the hips so it sort of rides up and creases in the hip area if that makes sense... arg.

Hey, yeay for us first time posters today!
first link didn't work for me but the second and third did. Just wanted to say good to see someone else new. I think I need to go try and make friends with my sewing machine again now. Happy craftstering.

Lately I've been struck by the urge to make stuff.. something. anything. Saw a wallet tutorial and thought I'd try that. mutilated it and thought hey, maybe a purse would go over better. Not so much.

The topic says it though- At least I tried. Hopefully I'll be posting here more in the future and my sewing skillz will vastly improve so I don't have to continue hanging my head in absolute shame and mortification.

In retrospect I wish I hadn't tried putting that binding around the edges of the wallet, it became extremely thick and difficult to work with and by the time I got to the purse I felt like I was beating my head into a brick wall. Better luck to me next though eh?
