3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / tutu making: which net to use? on: February 22, 2008 02:41:01 PM
i'm hoping to make a tutu for a fancy dress night soon and before i go out and buy the netting i was wondering whether stiffer net is more likely to make the tutu stick out... or if it will make it hang down because of it's weight...

anybody know?
i'd quite like it to stick out so that it looks as similar to a pancake tutu as possible (but obviously without the expense, time and effort because i'll probably only wear it once or maybe twice) but i dont really want it to be majorly bulky because i'll be in a packed club which means i'll be hot and probably very close to other people haha

thanks for reading this. hope you can help me Smiley
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Eco-friendly a-level project (IMG HEAVY) on: September 01, 2007 05:37:27 AM
I was waiting until I received my exam results before I posted this one. I didn't want to jinx myself or anything :S

My brief was to design original, eco-friendly clothing and I decided to make the outfit out of second hand clothes and fabric scraps.

Sorry about all the pictures...

The whole outfit

The front of the jacket - each panel is made from a different fabric and most panels have been decorated or manipulated in some way. There is an off-centre zip.

The back of the jacket

The sleeves can be ruched and tied in place using the ribbons

The skirt - which began life as a large size skirt. It was resized and reshaped into a pencil skirt. Then I added applique detail.

Close up of rosette-style applique. The leopard print fabric was sewn randomly to create a crumpled look. My logo was stencilled on and hand-embroidery was added. It's probably my favourite part of the whole outfit Smiley

Thanks for taking the time to look Smiley

8  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / First proper embroidery attempt... on: May 12, 2007 06:31:54 AM
The only embroidery I'd ever done before this was pretty poor and very simplistic, but I fell in love with sublime stitching patterns and decided to include them on my dress for my birthday party.

Here are the results...
(sorry the pictures are big)

I'm happy with it and my guests liked it too Smiley
