Hi! First post here, but I've been lurking for a while. I managed to save up and nab a cheap, simple sewing-machine a few weeks back, and I've been making things like crazy. It only does variations on straight and zig-zag stitch, so it's very simple, but I love it.
This is the first skirt I have ever made, as I only ever made pants in sewing class at school. The photo isn't very good, but it's a lovely purple colour with white and pink flowers on it, and a black zip. It was my first ever zip, and it went in pretty well! I had to pleat a bit at the back to make it fit properly, but it's so cute.
This is an op-shop rescue. It's not actually crooked -- I just stand funny. A size 8/10 skirt given an elastic waist further down so that it will fit me.
It's super comfy, and will be great in summer! I upped the brightness so you can see the colours -- it's an insane fabric!
A plain skirt made with scraps of fabric. The bottom is a really funky, weird print I got for like, three dollars at spotlight because it was only 45cm long. Luckily, it fit me the other way around and could be manipulated into a skirt via a piece of black material
This skirt cost me about fifty cents. I picked up the pillowcase at vinnies, used thread I had and some buttons I found in Mum's drawer. It looks much nicer than that -- the colours in the photo are a bit off. But it's a nice pastel yellow, and kinda adorable.
Unfinished, as the sleeves need to be fixed and it needs to be hemmed, but this is a dress I am working on. I made a pattern from a dress I bought, and decided to make a similar one. It's got a lot of flaws, but I love the fabric so I will forgive it.
A neckerchief thing I whipped up one morning when it was about one degree (celcius) outside. It's got a button at the back to keep it on, but it is very warm, surprisingly! More fabric from the op-shop.
This is just me giving a face to the clothes, and spazzing out with the neckerchief.
Thanks for looking! Hopefully I will be making some more (summer!) clothes soon.
