1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Channeling Retro: button-up shirt/pants (IMG heavy) on: January 01, 2008 09:26:38 PM
I thought I would finally take the plunge and make a button-up shirt/blouse and a pair of wide legged pants. I've made a lot of pants before but usually rush and my old machine was really cranky, so they never turned out well.
But this time! I'm really happy with the results of both pieces.

I think I'm channeling my grandma a little bit. Smiley

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / X-mas party evening dress on: December 11, 2007 09:57:22 AM
I spent two very late nights putting together this dress + a day designing the pattern and mockup. I got the design from Lee young Hee: http://www.leeyounghee.co.kr/. It's from her Seoul collection and if you dig around you can find it. Unfortunately there isn't a link directly to it.

I only have one good picture and hopefully this link provides the larger image.

I made up the design for the back and it has a covered button and loop at the top. The dress is made of two pieces, no darts and it doesn't come in at the waist much. The fabric is some sort of rayon, really smooth, drapey and heavy. I put it on for the first time and it went foomp! to the floor. The belt is of silk organza. I hand stitched the hem and created bias tape for all the edges and then hand sewed them. I'm not sure that I've ever spent so much time on a garment before, but it was well worth it and really fun to wear.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Handbag of excellent love. on: July 05, 2007 09:26:57 PM
I made this bag a couple of days ago and adore it. Practical yet pretty.
The best part is that I filched pieces from other bags that were no longer of use. AND it's modeled on the GAP body shopping bag.  Grin

I think my next versions will be in a pink hounds tooth and black with fabric manipulation (pleats??)
