why yes it is another spin off of sakijane's ribbon dress i made over a year ago, but i made it my own, instead of making it a dress i made it a long shirt and there are no ribbons hanging off the bottom 


close up on the applique ( there little gold sequins in the shape of a heart) sorry for the creepy see thoughness of my skin



ooh and the infamous action shot!!, i would explain the face im making but that would envolve me know what happened (and yes that IS a ball of yarn)




please leave comments cause they make me sooo happy Grin


thx
~h~


******************************************************************************************

mmmkay  so how i made the dress is (hopefully) simple to explain....

1) i bought a pattern that was a strapless dress and altered it to be just a long top ( basically cut off the skirt part and lengthed it ) make sure it fits you properly !!

2) sewed as patterns said (hemmed and everything)****DO NOT SEW ZIPPER IN YET!!!

3) i used a dress form and wrap ribbon around and pined it at the back seam( where the zipper goes)

4) while still on dress form (after all ribbons where on) i hand sewwed the ribbon on spots in the front so when i wear it the ribbons wont become loose and out of place

5) CAREFULLY take off dress form (back ribbons still pined on) lay on table and baste the ribbons on the back seam  then you machine sew in place and take out basting

6) sew in zipper and add on any thinig you want .....like an applique!

7) walla!! put it on and sit back and let every one gush over your lovey new top!

i hope this makes sense, if you have any questions you can just PM me and hopefully ill be able to help you Wink

That's so pretty. I love all the shades of green. Out of curiosity, is it stretchy or is there a zipper in there somewhere?

That is very nicely done.

It is well fitted and sewn and the ribbons are stunning. You did a great job on this.

How long have you been sewing? This doesn't look like a beginners project.

Love it!

umm.. have been sewing since i was little but that was like teddy bears and things like that

this was actually the first thing i made with an actual pattern, at the time i thought that i was crazy  Tongue i usually make up things without a pattern

and thanks, fitting it was NOT easy!!! my torso was 2 inches longer than the pattern  Embarrassed
