First posts, and first real constructions.
Just a few pieces ive sewn recently. Smiley

Just realised ive not been a member long enough to post images. So all are in links to my wee Craftster Gallery thing.

Artic Camoflauge Skirt

I had some Nifty fabric lying around, so made it into this Smiley
Made up my own pattern, and quite happy with the results considering i suck at math.
Thick Fabric, Thread and Luck

Bikini/Swim Skirt
I can never find these in the shops, so decided to have a go making my own.

Made up my own pattern as always, and it fits perfectly ^_^
Rather pleased.
Black Lycra, Black Thread and Elastic

Enjoy Smiley

Great work! LOVE the swim skirt, I need one of those.
Isn't it great to know what you want and be able to make it rather than being a slave to what the stores say you should be wearing?!

Thank you Smiley
Aw i love being able to say "Well actually i made it" when people ask where things are from.
Wee swim skirt was so easy to make, minus the fickle slidey lyra.

As for the Camo Skirt, i actually cheated, Didnt have a button holer at the time, so sewed them onto the outside, and it clips together with little bra hooks Wink

New sewing machine for Christmas, so plenty more to come!
