1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Vintage Vogue Wedding Dress on: June 14, 2009 05:48:44 AM
I was asked by my best friend to make her wedding dress, and this morning I finished it. I'm so so happy with it (well y'know mostly! ), and just had to shout about it here.
It's the most nerve wracking thing I've ever made for someone, and I'm really nervous about her fiance's reaction, plus the other guests. Her sister is a very acomplished seamstress and trained fashion designer, but lives too far away to have been asked to make the dress, so i'm really nervous of her opinion.
Anyway here it is.

The pattern used was Vintage Vogue 2960

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Boring old cupboard into "shabby chic" style baby cupboard on: May 02, 2009 11:13:48 AM
I've had this little cupboard for a few years, and for the last few of those it was stored in my dingy cellar. It was dark wood and a little boring. http://www.flickr.com/photos/56484492@N00/3433747611/

But a bit of TLC, a couple of coats of paint, a rub down with a wire brush and some pretty accessories, (draw liners and little hand sewn heart), it's now the perfect place to store everything ready for my next baby due in July.

I'm really pleased with it.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Maternity Skirts (link to tute) on: April 26, 2009 09:09:44 AM
It's been a wee while since I posted any of my projects here on Craftster, but maternity leave is now underway and I'm celebrating by posting my latest make, and a link to a tute too.
I've made a few of these cotton maternity skirts, using my own pattern, some from scratch and some from charity shop skirts.
This one is my latest.

I used Robert Kaufmann, Kitchy Kitchen cotton, and stretch ribbing for the bump band/yoke. More details and link to tute on my blog. www.lazyseamstress.blogspot.com

Thanks for looking, Love Jeanette

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Another Retro Styled Full Skirt on: August 10, 2008 08:30:30 AM
Loving the fit and style of the skirt I made yesterday https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=262243.0 I made another today from the same pattern.
This time I finished the pockets a little differently,and used some bargainous cotton from Ikea.

Just need to nip back to Hobbycraft tomorrow and see if I can find some more trim for the hem,I haven't got quite enough left over.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Spoonflower Skirt on: August 09, 2008 11:54:30 AM
I haven't posted for a few weeks,and not for ages in this forum,but I finished this skirt today and wanted to share.
The fabric is my own design printed by Spoonflower,and the pattern I used is from a Japanese sewing book called "Retrospective Is Stylish".
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / silk and dandelion clocks on: July 17, 2008 09:47:52 AM
I don't think I've ever posted in this section before.
The weather has been so horrible here lately,today was dark and miserable,I decided the cure was a touch of sewing and  a new handbag!

I used the an Ottobre freebie pattern I've used before,and some gorgeous printed linen,celery and vanilla coloured silk dupion,and a little brooch for sparkle.

Now where is that sunshine?

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mans shirt recon,yet another one. on: July 15, 2008 06:14:24 AM
After the recon I did last week,I wanted to try another.
Ths started life as a drab lilac shirt,which I dyed so it looked like this.

Then after some cutting,fitting and stuff it looks like this.

Sorry no modelled pics yet,but more details on my blog.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another Mans shirt to Ladies shirt recon. on: July 12, 2008 04:19:21 AM
Inspired by a couple of posts here,I decided to give one of my DH's old shirts a new lease of life.
Lots of cutting,darts and repositioning later this is what I came up with.
