1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / STUDDED MOTO VEST (i type in caps because it's so badass) on: July 11, 2009 12:21:23 AM
finally finished this... design, pattern, sewing, studding and sanding all done by me. it's made out of a heavier denim (i had to wash it several times and sand it to get it as soft as i wanted) and is fully lined. i purchased the studs from studsandspikes.com

and of course, pics of it on:
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Bodycon Zipper Skirt on: May 10, 2009 12:31:53 AM
hi guys, long time no see.

finished this skirt this morning. i wanted a bodycon bandage skirt with a zip in the middle, but i wanted a little challenge so i decided to eliminate the sideseams yet still retain the hip shaping. i succeeded -- all 7 strips are continuous all the way around.

and here's a rough idea of the pattern. left edge is on the fold.

Hoodie project for class. Design, pattern by myself. It's made of 100% cotton fleece.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / With This Waistband, Who Needs a Belt? (High-Waist Skirt) on: August 06, 2008 09:42:06 PM
Basing off the pattern I made from my grey skirt, I made this one, but with a 4cm shorter hem and a 1cm thicker waistband. With piping!

Also my face is blocked out because I just saw Feist in concert and I was beat. I literally finished hemming this 2 hours before, just so I could wear it.

Yeah so the piping was hell. The seam allowances were all wack because my zipper foot wasn't cooperating, so I had to bias tape the edges of the waistband inside, then blindstitch it down. I also started it off with a black invisible zipper, but as I was trying it on, the zipper got stuck and broke, so I had to rip it off. The metal zipper was the only one i had lying around, and I believe it was fate because it looks 10x better.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / High-Waisted Skirt is High (and very, very full) on: July 08, 2008 11:12:56 PM
Well seeing as my summer break is unproductive so far (this is what fashion school does to you), I finally got off my ass and made a skirt. Design, pattern, etc. by me.

(excuse my silly poses, these were taken for a fashion/outfit community)

And probably the best part: The sweet-ass pocket lining (shirt matched on purpose):

I've learned so much, but prepare to work your life away. It will seriously be the hardest you've ever worked in your life (and it gets harder every semester), and you'll have no/very little time to do much else. The instructors aren't as hard on the students in the first year and they say that it's the year where you're allowed to make mistakes. It gets tougher in the second year when the instructors get extremely nit-picky about your work. It's not uncommon to see students crying in the hallways, unfortunately. Also, instructors (especially the design and drawing instructors) really emphasize on process. Process counts almost as much as the final product, and we have sketchbooks to record everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) that we hand in at the end of the semester.

Anyway if you want to know more, just private message me.

Thanks everyone Smiley
Yes, I do unbutton and re-button the buttons every time I put it on and take it off. Theoretically I could've put an invisible zipper at the side but the project required having working plackets.

The pants were from a Vogue skinny jean pattern, and I didn't alter them except for the length. 
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The Backwards Blouse on: April 20, 2008 12:08:03 AM
I made this blouse for my 2nd semester shirt project (design, draft, sew, everything) and the process drove me into a nervous breakdown etc. etc. so I don't love it like I should. But even though I finished it at the last minute (I'm talking about sewing in the buttons during a drafting lecture right before it was due) I somehow managed to scrape up an A- on it. I'm guessing my instructor was feeling really, really generous. The pants were made back when I was still in the 12th grade (last year haha), from a commercial pattern.

oh, and this is why it's "backwards":

The sleeves aren't perfect because I was having some ease sewing issues and I have to re-sew some buttons on so that the plackets will lie flatter, but other than that I'm pleased with it.

Thanks everyone!
...you mentioned your Sewing II class. are you taking fashion at an art school?
I'm currently in my first year of fashion design at a university college.
