Title: new labelofhope Tops kimono style and more
Post by: labelofhope on April 22, 2008 10:46:45 AM
So I got my new camera in and I've been goofing with it so much my eyes are crossed! Here's some pics of my new creations.









I think my favorite has to the kimono one but I am super proud of the black and brown one (the back is way too cool!) :-*

I'm in love with the black and grey one, especially the neck, I thought iot was a dress at first, one of those short mod ones which I think would look really cute and co-sign with the others on the kimono. Also, don't think anyone mentioned it I really liked the details of the buttons on the black one.

I AM IN LOVE!!!
Did you use patterns for them or wing them on your own? 
The fabrics on them are divine!! 


Title: Re: new labelofhope Tops kimono style and more

Thanks so much everyone. I hope the yellow isn't too annoying to look at  ;)

No, I started doing my own a long time ago (I used to use a lot of vintage patterns and because a lot of the 40s style ones are so boxey I started altering them from there I said this is silly and started making my own). I just keep altering them to make new ones and use my dress maker. It's pretty fun.

These are really neat, I love the first one a lot and the one with the hood. :) The first one reminds me of JOODITO's work, very very cool :)

SUPERLATIVE!!!  Your own patterns ROCK MY SOCKS!!! 

Where did you get the fabric for the kimono?  AND... if I may be so bold, is can you walk me through the steps on cutting/sewing the front?  Obviously the sleeves and bottom would be simple :)  Do you overlap?  Do they meet in the middle?  Did you cut one back section and two front?  Do the two front actually meet on the sides or do they just get sewn to the large sleeve opening?

How did you make the hood for the 3rd top?  Is it one giant piece folded so there is no seam across and just gathered (if that makes sense)?  Or did you just cut two squares? 

The last one showcases your ink VERY nicely!  Such a feminine back!!!

You did a really wonderful job. And can I say, you look like Sarah Jessica Parker in the first pic....the way your head is turned.  :)  Very Pretty.

I think my fav is the red one with the sute hood.

I LOVE THE KIMONO TOP AND THE BLACK AND RED HOODIE! W00t!  Very sexy. I would just take the plaid ribon off the red and black hoodie because that kind of ruins the whole punk rock feel. Just my opinion.  ;D

I get all my fabrics in LA. I just walk the streets (hehe, that sounds funny) and go in all the different stores (around the garment district.

You're pretty much right on with the kimono top. It is two cuts for the bodice front and one for the back. You do overlap but just towards the center. I got the fabric in LA in one of the stores--I don't even know the name  :'(  Sorry about that
As far as the hoodie it's just a normal hoodie with the seam down the middle. I made this one uber small compared to a traditional hoodie. I call it a skull cap hood because it fits really close/tight to the head and hairline kinda like a cold water wetsuit (that's where I got the idea). I really intended it to be worn down and not up.

Your designs are AMAZING. So is your website! Have you tried getting your stuff into boutique stores? There's clothing that's not as nice quality getting into the fashion weeks here in Melbourne (Australia). Any store not picking up your designs is crazy!
