So...this is my first challenge...and i was probably too ambitious...here's the story of my inspiration...I was looking at the challenge for this month...and I wasn't paying attention while eating ramen noodles...long story short...I spilled food on my shirt, grabbed the first clean shirt i saw (which happened to be my twister shirt...) and...that is where i got my inspiration...
I found my old twister mat...then got to work on that saturday...The pattern i drafted in about an hour...minus the sleeves and hood...(I just made that pattern up as I went...) sorry i don't have any in-process pics
and here are the finished pics...
here you can see the sleeve...i used the twister at both ends to do both sleeves
ooh. and you can kind of see how it is fullllllly lined
andddd here you can see the back pleat thing and the hoooood...
andddd more detail of the hood, and you can see the epic anchor lining
and the pocket...it makes me smile
i put my measuring tape sticking out of it so you can see it's a pocket...
and here are the details of the cuffs on the sleeves...I cut out the hands and feet from the game board and used them as fake buttons for them...my left arm has a foot on it and the right arm has a sock on it
haha and just because my friend is so awesome..she did this for me
i love this pic...we were fooling around at the catholic church up the street from my house...cause they have epic stairs...so yeah, all the pics are courtesy of Amber and the catholic church
all in all, it took me from about 11 a.m. to around 8 p.m. of pretty much constant work...(aside from my machine dying, and me having to steal my mom's...hehehe) thankssss ooh. and p.s. i did this alllll without a dress form...i made this 2 weeks ago...and got a dress form yesterday
yay for pinning things to yourself!
