1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HOLY SHEET IVE BEEN BUSY!!! on: January 02, 2010 09:54:46 PM
Phew. Ive been way busy. So my friend is having a fashion show for her senior project and I am one of the designers showing in it. Its an all green eco-fashion show, so Im using my all sheet collection. So yeah. I am trying to show 10-13 pieces and I already have 6 so Im on track so far.
This dress is awesome; I love the placement of the PR logo right on the bodice. The pattern for this dress is so odd, but the result is beautiful. But the bias tape killed me bias tape will be the death of me
Front view:  

Back View:  

The outer skirt is awesome because it is a full circle, and if you hold it up it makes the complete picture.

Bias tape will be the death of me:

This is another piece I am showing, and I did 95% of it today, my friend came over and helped me with it ( thanks Lindsay!) its made of a relatively new TMNT sheet I found at goodwill 3 years ago, this project cost me like nothing. The sheet was $3, grommets were $3, the hook and eye tape I got for $2 a yard!!!!!! It was originally 21.99 a yard but somehow it rang up as 1.99 a yard so I bought 6 yards =) , and I bought the rest of the stores boning last week, because it was 10 cents a yard, so I bought 93 yards, yes you read correctly 93 yards so this whole project cost me, around $8.50.
I put hook and eyes up the front so you dont have to completely lace it up every time, and because it looks cool.

I love hook and eye tape!!!

 I love to put in grommets, even though these didnt come out so hot.

This is another piece I am showing. NKOTB shorts! I made these from an awesome vintage 80s pattern I found. I lined them with muslin. They have a big elastic waistband and pockets!

Back: with faces on the pockets!!!

And lastly, this is a WIP, but I figured I would give you guys a sneak peek. It is another corset( different pattern )  but made with beauty and the beats sheets.
The lace I plan on putting on the top:

Yep yep, so let me know what you think. Comments, questions...

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Old footloose record into a clock!!! on: September 06, 2009 01:47:42 PM
so i saw megs episode about clock, and i was like "i so wanna do that to random stuff"

i remembered that my dad made a whole bunch of clocks awhile ago, and it just so happened he still had 2 kits with all of the pieces left, and i just so happened to have an old footloose album....hmmmmm


total cost of this project = $0

and just because i like taking cool pics....this is now my desktop pic!!!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / billboard to fanny pack!!! on: August 29, 2009 08:38:54 PM
okey dokey, well i saw the latest episode  of threadbanger and i was like OMG!

i love fanny packs, and ive been wanting to make one forever...

ive also wanted to make a bag out of an old billboard, ( you can find tons of them on etsy), and i knew i could do that, so i was at the thrift store the other day, and i saw a HAIRSPRAY the movie poster billboard thing... 

it looked just like this

and then i saw the episode and i decided to combine them...

what possessed me to do that? IDK? and i still dont know

it only took a couple hours to finish, and i somehow had the perfect

everything to go with it, the buckle i had, along with the webbing

and the zipper.....there are a few imperfections in it, but hey it was my first one and i think its quite rad......

enough rattling....pics!!!

whacha think?

Im a little dubious about Lady Catherines- but possibly cause Im a really stickler about period accuracy in costumes, almost to a fault! But it certainly has lots of character and quite rightly suits her!

I think the Bennet costumes are perfect! And they all look like they must have really made the performance. I love it when the costumes do that Smiley And good job on making all six for one show! That really is something to boast about!

i understand your concern for period accuracy, but it was design choice, i wanted to set Lady C in a time period further ahead of that era to show her "royalness" and her wealth, and also to somewhat separate her from the bennetts

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pride and Prejudice on: June 07, 2009 08:06:55 PM
My Theater Dept just finished their performances of Pride and Prejudice
I made 6 costumes .
I made the 5 Bennett Girls and Lady Catherine de Bourgh.
I drafted the patterns for all of the Bennett Girls.YAY
and i made all of Lady Catherines stuff without a pattern excpet for her corset. 
I'll try not to bore you with too many words so heres some pics.





Lady Catherine de Bourgh

The Bennett dresses are just plain cotton lined with muslin and zippers up the back. Lady Catherine was definitely my favorite to make. She is wearing a farthingale ( foam hips) that I made myself. I made them out of foam, they Velcro in the front and have suspender-like straps. The skirt then sits on top of them, and then the corset sucks everything all together. I would love to hear feedback, and if you have any questions on anything please ask me. 
Uhm I think thats it.
