21  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Dinosaur High Top Converse (rip offs)! on: July 14, 2008 08:56:14 PM
I havent touched these shoes for.. about four years. I didnt really like how it fit, so I stopped wearing them. Then i stumbled on someone who painted their shoes, and iwas like OMG I HAVE TO TRY THAT.
So.. this is what you get!
these dinosaurs are like.. my "trademarks." I draw them EVERYWHERE (even on a math textbook that was passed around my calc class) XP so i suppose the perfect picture for my first pair of painted shoes?

sorry the pics are kind of fuzzy.. the lighting was really terrible so I had to play with a whole bunch of settings that I didnt know how to use Cheesy

comments? critique?
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Denim <= O_O pinafore! on: July 05, 2008 07:29:47 PM
So i've been wanting to make a pinafore for AGESSSS except i never had the right fabric.. so i got this denim (its a really dark faded blue) that i got like.. three yards of, so i figured, if not anything, then why not denim?

at first i tried zipper closing the back, but i didnt really like the way it fit, so i thought.. hey why not a corset back? i was kind of scared cuz i've never done corset lacing on a top before, and wasnt sure whether, without shaping and boning and stuff, whether it'd fit right, but it worked like a charm! Cheesy

I was working on this dress at about 2 am friday night, and stupid me [and distracted me, talking to the bf on my cellphone], i sewed the top to the wrong side of the skirt. I'm not sure if I like it this way, or if i should switch it so the top part is the same color [the darker color] as the skirt.
any suggestions?
and also, i'm not sure whether i should add straps or not. I kind of like it as is, but i get the feeling its not a REAL pinafore without the straps. ?!?!

any suggestions?
[sorry for the long ramble =d]


back... sorry for the shakieness.. i didnt want to use flash on a mirror picture, and the lighting wasnt really optimal =d

closer up of the corset lacing
yay grommets!

so once again. comments suggestions?
and yes, the raw hem is on the back of the outside because of my stupid mistake =__= if i decide to leave the skirt, then i'll redo the hem Smiley
23  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / if only we could touch painted vans on: July 05, 2008 12:46:42 PM
so my old shoes kinda looked like the ones on the right :
and i got really bored of them

so i decided i wanted to paint them over! these are the second shoes i've ever painted (i'll upload the first soon!) and i used about thirty million coats of paint

here it is! :

both shoes!

right shoe: the woman [the paint's kind of cracked cuz i was .. uh.. too lazy to heat seal it.. but i'll get around to it soon! promise! Cheesy

left shoe! the man

most people i've shown these to dont realy get that they're people
can you guys see the people?

and the reason that theres silver streaks/ patches and stuff was that originally i wanted the blue to be a bit shiny so i added a thin coat of silver.. but then i decided nah i didnt want to cover all fo the blue. so now its kind of .. streaky.
should i fix it? leave it?

any suggestions?
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Graphic Pop Art Paper/Tape Wallets [img heavy] on: July 02, 2008 09:15:49 PM
awww these are so cute!
but paper seems kind of fragile no?

why dont you try making them in like.. say white canvas or some other heavy fabric [interfaced cotton? dk] and use fabric markers or sharpies? Cheesy cuz i think that'd hold up better

but anyways. great job! Cheesy

27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Floral Banquet Dress! Yay! [big, silly pics o.o] on: June 03, 2008 08:46:18 PM
So here's the first obnoxiously long txt portion of my post Cheesy

Okay so my mom refused to buy me a dress for my banquet (basically an end of hte year reception thing for our Orchesis Dance Company) cuz my room wasnt clean. So i was like "okay i'll clean my room." I cleaned it, but then she refused to take me shopping cuz she was like "you have so much fabric! Just make a dress!"
That was last Monday.
So i'm thinking... I have a week to crank out a dress. And I've never really made a dress from scratch before, without a pattern! and I am dressformless, so i'd have to like.. pin it to.. me.


Anyways, I've had this dress in mind for AGES. I am the WORST WORST ABSOLUTE WORST at making the chest part of shirts/dresses, so lucky me! i found a broken BRA that basically i just pineed the fabric to and sewed on. LOL yeah so thats why the top part is shaped like a bra o.o

um.. i finished the dress at around.. 5:15.. :45 minutes before the banquet LOL so some of the mistakes [the bottom is a bit uneven, and it hangs kind of weirdly] i wasnt able to fix =x i and i actually found a HANGING THREAD when i came back!!! O_O O_O O_O haha

but i really love this dress. I've wanted a floral dress for AGES and now i finally have one! yay me Cheesy so.. of course, i picwhored with it.
a majority of the pictures arent posted, but.... well... these were the ones i really really liked Cheesy

cuz i'm a dancer Cheesy

because everyone needs a leg popped, about to be kissed, ohmygoshness pose

um.. sprawled awkwardly against the wall, so you can see hte bakc! and see that i can't really... move my leg ALL that much. Cheesy

yay. sisterly..
(: hahaha

yay! comments/critique appreciated!

nicely done! reminds me of the one on american apparel Cheesy the color is lovely on you XP

is it just me or does the front chest part look a bit wrinkly from the side when your straps are tied around the neck? but i love the flower knot thing it makes =D

great job, especially for a first dress Cheesy
