Hello, i have been so lazy to post. but now!  Cheesy:

(TUTORIAL ON PAGE 2 , btw with 'smocking' i mean 'to gather')  Tongue





i bought this fabric a couple of years ago on the market in cergy. but i had no idea what to do with it. until i saw joss stone's video "tell me what we're gonna do now" and i fell in love with the dress she wore. so i wanted to make one too  Grin. i think it's kind of unpractical because of all the straps, but it's also ideal for the summer.  Grin



this one's made of scrap fabric. it's kinda like stretchy jeans. i turned out less stretchy than i thought it was. so it's a little bit tight. but that's okay  Cheesy



a friend of my mom went to thailand and bought this fabric for her. she used half of it, and i got the other half  Grin. i really love it! it's dark blue silk with gold details

and i also made a black infinity dress. but that's not even interesting anymore, since everyone on craftster has one  Tongue

thanks for looking!

Good stuff, I especially love the first one!  Those nesting dolls (or whatever they are called!) are awesome on that red fabric!

thanks everyone! Grin i love that you love them !  Tongue

i made a tutorial cause i was bored:

this is for the red flower dress:
it's really basic, like many people do on craftster  Wink



and this is for the long red dress:

the top part is kinda like a bikinitop : there's no back. side B of the bikinitop part you should smock just a little bit (you shouldn't see any wrinkles) until the piece is a bit round (like a shell).



and the side D that is smocked, should equal 2 x  side C

and for the straps and loops i just cut a 2 m long and 2 cm wide piece of fabric and made a sort of tube of it. (not braided or anything  Cool )


ps; i say smock all the time, but i'm not really sure this is even a word Huh maybe drape is a better word..(at least you should wrinkle that part together  Tongue )

I was going to say that gather made more sense.
Now I have a question beacuse I was thinking the dress would be so cute in the summer, could you line the top part and put bra cups in there so you didn't have to wear a bra? I'm not huge or anything but I hate poke-age. lol

hahahahaha! yeah of course you could do that! i think that's brilliant! Grin that would be so much better, cause the bra will always be visible if you wear one. it's not so charming.

 hmmm maybe i'm going reconstruct the dress!   Cheesy thanks for that suggestive question
