So this is the first piece of clothing i have ever made. And also my first piece made without a pattern....

So here it is...

http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c227/ElvenOne1986/Sewing/HPIM0329.jpg

So, it is see through... It was designed to be worn over 3/4 black tights...

Im pretty proud of it... and... I want to keep it....

But its for part of my sisters christmas present... So i cant... *pout*

Ohwell... im gonna make me one...

The first is always the proto-type yeah..?? haha


oh.. another great thing... It was made out of two pieces of fabric from a remnant bin and i have enough of the black stretchy to make myself a top aswell...!!!

Modified to add tutorial, Hope its alright, this is also my first tutorial, and i didn't have any Left Over tulle To make another, So its made in boring old paint.

Black and red my FAVOURITE colours i barely have anything but them in my wardrobe. Nice job although ive never like the tights under those short skirts while im happy my friends covered up during winter i allways thought they looked like you were hiding something.

Hot skirt though!  Kiss

Ah, that's so pretty.  I've been meaning to make something out of tulle...I love tulle.  I can't find any stretch stuff for the waistband and I don't feel like doing anything fancy xD

Yeah, im not a fan of the tights either... But, its for my sister, and she is into that kind of thing. Plus, the tulle is kinda see through... haha, but, i spose the good thing is is the band is pretty long so it can cover everything that most people dont want to be showing... haha Grin

That's gorgeous! nicely done.

haha thank you... Smiley

I Gotsta make me one of those.

It was actually pretty darn easy... haha...

you should make another in red n white for some added christmas cheer!

I was thinking that...!!! Only, id probably go for green and red, only cause it never snows here at christmas... being summer and all...!

its tu - tu cute! Smiley

haha and you are tu-tu kind...  Wink

So...itchy....

Actually its not too bad... I tried it on myself (to make sure it sits right) and the tulle doesnt itch hardly at all.... its pretty fine stuff....
Thanks..

Well... I was lucky, I found the stretch stuff in the remnant bin for AU$1 and it was a HUGE piece, enough to make about 10 bands for this skirt if not more... Im actually going to make a top or two out of the left over part.

OMG I SAW SOMETHING EXACTLY LIKE THAT ON EBAY AND ALMOST PAYED 30 BUCKS FOR IT! How did u make that?! Tutorial anytime soon....... thats so gorgeuos  Shocked

Oh My gosh...!!!! Are you serious... Maybe i should make some and set up an ebay shop...Huh of course i would sell them cheaper... Sheesh..!! $30...!! was that US$ too...Huh? omg... it cost less that AU$2 to make..!! I dont have any tulle to make another for a tutorial... But i will whip up a Paint one today and see how i go...!!


And again, thanks everyone i am flattered....
