hey guys! i haven't updated in a while... well anyways like last year i made a whole lot of clothes. when i look back on last year's summer clothes i wonder to myself what was i thinking? i think i am a way better sewer (if i do say so myself! Wink) my cousin said i should sell them but personally i don't think they are that good. if i do sell them i am probably going to have to take differant pictures! lol sorry for me being "exposed" i was too lazy to look for an undershirt. haha You'd be surprised how long it takes to put on 60 and oh yes i mean 60 shirts (well actually 2 shorts and 58 shirts). towards the end, you can probably notice how exhausted i am. I should have taken a break but i wanted to show them all, seeing as it has been my 1 year anniversary being on craftster!! so yay me!!! lol anyways I'll stop my babbling and get on to the pictures!

oh and i forgot to mention most of these (if you couldn't tell) are t-shirts, some of them i made from scratch but i was just too lazy to sort them out... i just want to thank taloola, simplyfussfree, lasandri, knottydottie, and dontlookback for all the fabric and t-shirts you have given me in swaps. they obviously came to good use! Smiley

I'm going to start from the simplest to the more difficult

long tunic









HOOTERS!! hahaha

these shirts were inspired by Miss American Pie's prom gown

back






my boyfriend use to wear this shirt and he grew out of it. it was too big for me so i made it into something cute!



close up


haha i was trying to look like i was singing, but i look blkashfaois

close up (button's are slightly off)


reminds me of sprinkles, hence the hand gestures

strawberries! love this one so much!

close up


the first one i made out of the bunch above but it was just a test

tiger pride?


i don't really like this one. sort of frumpy...

back


i wanted to wear this one to my birthday party but my parents said it was ugly!

long ties that i brushed off to the back


iffy about this shirt. i imagined it better, any ideas on how to fix it?

i like the back though


gingham print

the straps are braided


tired

close up


made me feel like i was in the prairie or something?

another shot


my post was too long so i broke it into part 1 and part 2! tell me what you guys think of these! i would love to hear your thoughts.

here is the part 2 link!

Those are all adorable  Grin  I actually like the ones your parents said was ugly..if you took some old jeans, cut them off at the crotch and put some simple eyelet lace trim around the hem, it would make a really nice summer picnic outfit.

Same goes for that shirt you felt iffy about, any shirt can look good if you pair it up correctly, do you have yellow shorts, or culottes? That would make a good tennis outfit.

What a lot of work, and it all looks great Cheesy

bijou_raoul- aw thanks! well it just all depends. certain days i wouldn't make anything. the week of my birthday i made nothing but some days i would make like 7 in a row but that only applies for part 2. part 1 was more like one a day or 2 if i was in the mood.

Well ... after part two comes part one - at least for me  Wink. You're crazy girl ..... definitely open a boutique and sell .... with your energy you are your own factory  Grin Very nice work.

Now if you would posta tut for the tops with the nice gather in front liek the musical notes one  - i would really appreciate ..... i made some like that myself but yours look much nicer.

hmmm it's a little hard to explain. you just make another tube fold it in half and then sew it to the bottom and top. does that help? i'm more of a person that shows than explains.
