Ok so here are my ventures into craftiness - clothing edition

I made most of them a while back.  

This is from a pattern.  I can tell you which one if you want.  Just an A-line skirt with a drawsting at the top.  It's lined in plain white.  (I made a matching purse but it's going in the purse section)

Front:


Back:
currently unavailable - 2/28/07

Hem:



This was a big tee.  I didn't use a pattern just winged it.  The flares on the edge are the tops of the sleeves and the back comes down farther than the front.  

Front:
currently unavailable - 2/28/07

Back:


I never wore this tank much but somehow it got a stain so I put a little felt flower on it and now I want to wear it all the time  Cheesy  It took maybe 5 min.

Yes! It was from a sheet (as was the purse I made)  and I still have TONS left.. I could probly make another skirt and purse actually!


As for a tut... I can try to make one tomorrow or so ... It was actually just a Simplicity pattern (7229?)  I think the only thing I added was lining.. but I'll try to relive it and write it down for you Smiley

OK so here are my awful attempts at tutorials  Wink

Pardon my lack of Paint skills.

Mario Skirt

Keep in mind that this is also a Butterick pattern



You'll need two of #1 and 4 of #2 (if you want lining, if not just two)

The #1s should be half of your waist size plus seam allowances all around.  They should also be twice as tall as you want the top part to be since you are folding them over.  

Choose the #1 that you want to be in the front and make two buttonholes just off of the center and just underneath your fold.  (like in the second pic)

Lay both of the #1s down flat with the outsides touching and sew straight down the left and right sides.

Then fold it so that each band is now in half.  


Cut two #2s out of your outer fabric and two from your lining.   Lay them all down together in the right order (lining, outer, outer, lining) and then sew up the sides.  

You should now have one #1 and one #2.  Just sew #1 to #2 and then hem the bottom.  Then you can run your drawstring through #1.

I hope that makes sense!!!  


Here's the Tweekend skirt.



Cut out two #1s (front and back) two #2s (front and back and remember if you want the back to hang farther you gotta cut it that way  Wink) and the #3s. (For the #2s I just cut down to the bottom of the shirt and used the shirt hem as hem at the bottom of the shirt, it worked out really well that way so you should do that if you can)

The #1s should be half of your waist size plus seam allowances all around.  They should also be twice as tall as you want the top part to be since you are folding them over.  

Fold the front #1 in half and sew it to the front #2.  Do the same for the back.  

Pin the front and back together and when you come to the bottom of each side put in one of the #3s so that the hems are aligned.  

I started sewing from the bottom and just picked one side of the #3 to start on, sewed up to the top of the skirt and came back to sew the other side of the #3.  Do that for both sides and you're done!



Tell me if I made a mess of this and I'll try to clarify.  I'm horrible at explaining things.


btw since my pics are being resized here are the original links so maybe you can read them better. Sorry guys.
