1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my grecian-inspired prom dress! (disasters included=]) on: May 09, 2008 02:10:22 PM
so i whipped this puppy out in about a week! =] i got a prom date in even less =] i dont have any pictures of the back, but i think you can get the jist of it. but i had some major disasters.
1. the first draft was waayyy too small, i couldnt even zip it!
2. it melted. =] i forgot it was polyester! oops! (the solution was the gather-y thingy in the front!)
3. the strap kept un-doing, so i had to sew it on me on the way to dinner! =]
4. the second draft was a little big, so it was safety pinned to my bra! lol.
but on to the pictures!

sorry! i forgot to rotate it! (and isnt my date cute??!)

me trying to hold up the strap! lol
what do you think?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / hemming cotton spandex? on: February 06, 2008 03:44:42 PM
on a recent trip to chicago, i bought some lovely pink/red striped cotton spandex. i know it sounds bad, but its amazing. ANYWaY, i want to make a dress out of it, but i was wondering if there was a way of hemming it without making it ruffle-y at the bottom? my aunt suggested a rolled hem foot, but is there an easier way?

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / pokemon shirt! on: December 23, 2007 07:58:23 PM
my younger brother is really into pokemon, so i found the logo of it and put it onto a shirt for him. it took three layers, the inside blue part i cut out and stenciled first, then the yellow after that, and then the outside blue part. i mostly did the pokeball thing free hand, except for the outer circle. this took me most of the afternoon, but i   think it is well worth it! well, enough talk, here's the pics! tell me what you think!

the whole shirt

and a close up
thanks for looking!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / lining a jacket. on: December 18, 2007 01:08:39 PM
my winter coat is just a little too thin, but i dont want to get a new one. i bought some fabric, but how should i line it? i searched for a tutorial, but couldnt find one.
should i just turn the coat inside out and wing it with the fabric(its flannel)?or is there a better way?
thank you in advance!

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / fabric beads bracelet on: December 01, 2007 10:38:44 AM

the bigger, round beads are made with wooden beads covered in strips of fabric soaked in glue. the cylindrical ones are made with strips of fabric wrapped around a dowel and then fibers glued on to that, and then a wire with seed beads wrapped around that. I hope that this is the right board, because its not actually beads you would buy in a store! thanks for looking!(sorry its blurry!)
