1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Pimp My Shoe! Painting Kokeshi Dolls (big pics!) on: February 24, 2010 12:11:03 AM

I' m in love with the high sneakers for a long time. Reebok is my favorite with the bright colors and style.
But I decided to make my sneaker painted by myself. First I bought a Tiger sneaker and paint the bands with acrylic color to white. Then I start to draw some Kokeshi Dolls, Japan Fans etc.

I used Faber Castell permanent color pens and Edding Silver permanet marker.
For extra water resistance I used Mod Podge Outdoor for top coat.

My coral and turquoise tunic top...
I used this pattern : http://www.burdafashion.com/downloads/downloadschnitte/easyfashion/efe971010.pdf
But altered it a lot as you see.
First I lengthened the sleeves, then add wide fabric ribbon to tie at the back. (Because it didn't fit on me well)
And sew some crystal like cabochons to the front yoke.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / new dress from old fabric with petticoat -again electric blue on: March 20, 2008 07:17:38 AM
I'm sewing things and publish them on my blog but forget them to publish them here.

This dress is sewn from a vintage fabric (almost 40years old) and the pattern is from Burda nov2007-107A
The pattern fit very good on me, i didn't need to alter anything.
I used it with my yellow wide elastic belt
What do you think?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / electric blue dress with sequin details on: December 13, 2007 04:24:19 AM
I know, i'm kind of a dress maniac  Cheesy This dress is sewn buy my mom but the sequin details made by me.
The fabric is silk and for lining she used satin.
(The sequins are mostly placed (ready)on ribbon. I placed them to make a figure like a windmill or spin. Then put sequins (piece ones) around them.
This is also my birthay dress which was on 22nd of november.

this dress needs a pretty heel to go with. I bought a new pair of electric blue pumps.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / red-navy jumper dress (balloon skirt) on: December 13, 2007 04:13:53 AM
and the second jersey dress : red - navy jumper dress
First i made the bust part and left it for a while. Because i didn't decide what to do with the rest of it.
So i just use two rectangels (red) to make the skirt part, gather the bottom and add the bottom part. (navy)
And it becomes the balloon skirt.
So here is my jumper dress :

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / high waist-4 pieces skirt(tan velvet) on: October 24, 2007 11:52:32 PM
hi again Grin
this is a skirt i made about 3-4 hours total. It's a vintage pattern too,from 70's i guess.
It's pretty easy just4 skirt pieces and high waisted belt piece.
Fabric looks like suede but it's kind of a silk like velvet. I combined it with a leopard belt and tan boots.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / fushia pink jersey tied up collar shirt... on: October 24, 2007 01:03:40 AM
hi everyone again. I made a  shirt from fushia pink jersey. I used a vintage pattern. And it's actually a wedding gown.

I'm in love with the arm detail. I added another detail on the collar. I just use a longer rectangle than it is on the pattern, and i tied it up. The pattern has so many darts, but i use darts only for the front bodice. I didn't use all the pieces of the pattern. I just use front and back bodice and above arm (the gathered one-but i make it smaller). For the bottom of front and back pieces and straight arm i made a pattern from my old shirt. And here is the result :
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my Shari dress creation (polka dot dress) on: October 15, 2007 01:19:07 AM
Hi again.
I found this pattern at www.burdastyle.com it's called Shari dress. Here is the pattern:

Changed the pattern :(but i didn't make all of my thoughts)

I worked on the pattern a little bit and change few things like the sleeves.
I put on princess sleeves from another pattern and instead of piping i just add fabric ribbon.
And i add black lace. (i love lace soo much) Yeah, i'm kind of a romantic person.

i didn't cut the skirt on bias because i'm out of fabric.
And here is a detail of the sleeve.
