since i should be studying for finals..i figured i'd go on craftster instead! haven't posted in a while so i thought i'd post some things i've made this past year or so..

first off my collection from a school fashion show. these are from may '08. the blouses were modifications of burda's JJ blouse. the skirts were my own design. dresses were my own design. the jacket was a trench coat pattern that i shortened and modified to look more like a moto jacket. shorts were based off a pair of shorts i own. and the pants were a woman's pants pattern modified to fit a guy. click for a larger image.

and here are a few random things i made and had on hand to take pictures of..all of them were my own design :]

the most comfortable cardigan in a gray lightweight jersey knit fabric.

made for a guy friend who wants more cardigans. it still needs buttons.

a top i pieced together with scraps of a cream jersey knit fabric.

skirt made from random fabric. it has an elastic waistband and pockets. i'm not a huge fan of the fabric, though.

a simple navy blue skirt w/ small front and back pleats and pockets. it definitely needs to be ironed but i like it :] i kind of messed up on the zipper but i don't think it's too noticeable..

thanks for looking :]

Great job on all of them Smiley your fashion show collection looks fab. I may just have to make myself a jersey cardigan now that i've seen yours - it looks so comfortable!

thanks! i usually just wear jeans + tshirts but i'm trying to change up my style a bit. since i'm broke it's cheaper to just make everything. i'm hoping to do a whole wardrobe revamp this summer!

These are some terrific pieces.  Very good work.

I love that cardigan and the navy skirt.  Did you use a pattern for the navy blue skirt?  It's just fantastic.

Really like that navy skirt; love the pleats and pockets. And is that piping I see around the waist band? Nice job.
