1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with making a Bustier-style tank top on: March 15, 2011 09:06:53 AM
Hi guys! I got this really great red/white striped jersey last night ($1.78/yd!) and I think it would look great as a Bustier-style tank. You know, really structured cups, but then I want it to be a little bit looser so as I can wear it with a pair of high waisted denim shorts or a navy skirt and tuck it in.

So, I KNOW I have seen a tutorial on here for a shirt or dress similar, but I cannot dig it up! If anyone could help that would be fantastic. I really just need to figure out how to do the cups.

Here is something similar:

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my "oh-shit-meg's-home-from-india-and-i-can't-afford-a-birthday-present" bag on: June 11, 2010 02:52:16 PM
soooo my roommate spent the last three weeks building homes in india & while she was there she turned 20. and last night at about 9pm i realized that she was indeed on a plane heading back to the US and i would be seeing her saturday afternoon. and nope, i did not buy her a birthday present.

so of course i ran upstairs to my pile of fabric that i haven't touched in probably years because my sewing machine was broken. luckily my brother's girlfriend was able to fix it (yay for fashion designer girlfriends!) but i still need to buy a better one. i almost threw it out the window trying to sew this puppy.

anyway, i just cut what i thought looked good and what fit on the fabric that i had. i didn't want to do the zigzag details but my machine wasn't letting me do proper straight lines. i'm happy with how the zigzags turned out anyways. i wanted to do something different too, so i made three straps and braided them together into one.

with all the hassle of sewing the red edging on about 6 different times and removing the stitching over and over again the bag probably took me about 5 hours total. not too bad.

on to the photos! apologies for the crappy photobooth pictures, i didn't have time to take any real photos before the party!

bag as a whole

braided detail of strap

added a flower for some ... oomph or something

my signature/initals

red lining!

woohoo! if anyone wants a tutorial i can probably whip one up in photoshop or something Smiley

I love the way you collaged the sparrow.
youre so lucky to have had his mum hold yours

I think the song is about his battle with cancer or something to that effect I love your use of the bird and the symbolism between that and "swim"

thanks! i wasn't sure if people would be confused by the symbolism of the swallow and the word swim, but the first thing i thought of to symbolize that song was a swallow, since it means hope and whatever.

hi everyone! i made this collage a few months ago when one of my favorite bands (Jack's Mannequin) had a call for entries for a music video of theirs called "Swim." so i made this collage in about 24 hours (during about 3 days) & sent it in, and it made it into the video! i was really stoked about this, but i'm REALLY sad that the record label kept it, because i totally want it on my wall!

the background is paper shopping bags - the darker ones i stained with coffee grounds. the swallow & text are made from scrapbook paper

from "the making of 'swim'" that's andrew mcmahon (lead singer) in between his parents!

& here it is in the actual video

and you can see the video here if you'd like, my collage is in it 3 times i believe, and the lead singer's mom holds it! pretty effin cool
