1  Big pocket apron! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by girlndocs on: December 07, 2007 12:50:38 PM
I was inspired by the simple aprons at Selvedge and designed this pocketful beauty.

It's reversible and has 4 great big pockets on each side, all along the bottom hem. I cut it in a trapezoid shape so it covers me up really well!

2  pleating help? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by girlndocs on: December 03, 2007 12:17:11 PM
I'm making a Utilikilt knockoff for the man this holiday season. This is my first experience with pleating so extensive.

Is it normal for my pleats to be "climbing" as I go? If you look closely at the upper edge in the pic you can see it. Sorry it's not a better shot:

I know that if pleats stay perfectly parallel they don't do it ... but the UK has a few tapered/angled pleats next to the edge of the apron, and as soon as I stopped angling them and started making them parallel, they began to climb and they haven't stopped. I have about 6 inches of safety margin on that fabric, but at half an inch per pleat the climbing is using it up pretty fast.  Undecided

3  My first project post! Vintage pillowcase into "spring flowers" handbag ... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by girlndocs on: January 29, 2007 02:51:16 PM

It's about 6x7". I lined it with this soft, suedelike synthetic (oh, the alliteration! Oh, the humanity!) and gave it a button flap closure with a lil vintage button. I'm really happy with how it turned out!
