31  Project dummmmmp in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Boo_its_Brittany on: April 11, 2010 09:16:28 PM
Miss me, guys?
I've been kind of lagging on my posts.
I haven't been crafting quite as much lately. Life is pretty hectic, but I hope to get back into my creative loop soon.

Bear dress.

My mom got me the fabric for my birthday.
I'm trying to do less babydoll type dresses because I feel repetitive... and more regular bodice ones. I'm still having some trouble with fit, but I'm getting better. I don't use patterns, cause I don't really care for them, but that adds to my problem I suppose. The bodice for this dress is basically a couple rectangles, shirred in the back, and darted in the front. I'll probably sew on some waist ties or make a sash or something to fix the fit issue and just do better on my next dress. Haha. The skirt is alternating panels, two with ruffles.

Spiderweb dress

I had great plans for this dress, but I didn't have a lot of fabric, so I was forced to go with a basic tunic dress thing. There's some elastic under the boobs (That you can't really see) to make it less boxy and shapeless.

Unicorn skirt

Full of flaws, but its still probably one of my favorite things I've made Smiley!
Gathered skirt with ruffle hem and rainbow ric rac trim.

High-waisted Damask print corset skirt

Yeah. This is one of the longest skirts I've made. Haha. Its just a pretty basic high-waisted skirt, shirring in the back, and corset lacing up front.

Sugarskull dress

Trying to do different types of dresses so I don't grow bored of my own creations.. This is a tunic type deal, with waist ties to help fit.

That's all for now.

34  My name is Brittany.... and I'm obsessed with rainbows. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Boo_its_Brittany on: January 24, 2010 06:00:00 PM
I can't help it.

Painted and reconned the sleeves on a purple shirt. The sleeves are puffy with red, orange, yellow, and green inserts.

This dress reminds me of a circus, so I call it my rainbow circus dress. Smiley! It's made of eight tshirts (one for each color of the rainbow). I originally intended for it to have the sleeves I put on that shirt ^^^^ but I decided in the end to leave it sleeve/strapless.

Rainbow and black armwarmers. Made from tshirt scraps. (From that dress^^ as well as a previous recon-gone-wrong)

A few things.

Rainbow dino necklace.

Toy train necklace.
I have to figure out how to make it sit up straight before I'll ever wear it. It kind of tips over as is.

Skeleton necklace.

Hair clips. One legos, a wooden bat, skeleton hands with lace, and bat and cross bones.

Until the next post,

37  Stripes, toys, pink gingham, kitties, and carebears. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Boo_its_Brittany on: December 06, 2009 06:04:26 PM
Just a couple projects.
I'm getting ready to start making christmas gifts for some friends, so my next post will include those Smiley!
For now:
Some skirts.

Black and white stripes.

Toy lolita skirt with matching bow.
I need a petticoat, I think this skirt would look adorable with more poof. Smiley!

A couple dresses.

Dino dress.
I love this, so much.

Pink gingham with kitties.
This was supposed to be kind of lolita, but it kind of failed.
It was more of a learning experience then anything.

Care bear tie.
I didn't own any colorful ties, just black and white ones, so I decided to use some scraps of Care bear fabric to whip myself up a tie. :3!

This doesn't technically go here, but it isn't special enough for its own thread. Haha.

Simple slash and weave tshirt recon

That's all for now Cheesy!

38  Rainbow Brite, see the shining light, yes I'm gonna take you to Rainbow Brite! in Halloween Costumes by Boo_its_Brittany on: November 03, 2009 04:41:34 PM
Starlite flies, right before your eyes.
And rainbow colors will cheer you upppppp Cheesy!

So, its obv at this point what my costume was this year.

Smiley! Rainbow Brite <3!
I'm called Rainbow Brite so much all the time because of my everyday clothing style, so I figured why not be Rainbow Brite for halloween?
Originally, I had basic plans of how I would construct it. I broke down the outfit into four basic pieces; dress, vest, sleeves, and bootcovers. Then I figured out how to use methods and techniques I already know to create the each piece. I didn't use any patterns and I just winged it. At the end, nothing was how I originally plannned. Haha.
But I made it work Smiley!

The dress was basically a tube top with a circle skirt. The back is shirred. I decided to add straps to avoid any mishaps.... Roll Eyes!

I stitched on the yellow rectangle with machine and the red dots by hand. I learned that I love exposed stitching like this Smiley!

The "sleeves" from my beginning plan turned into armwarmers in the end.... due to the fact I have no idea how to construct sleeve patterns, connect them to a dress, etc. They went up passed my elbow, so they were just like sleeves, just not attached. Tongue!
The star is stitched on by hand Smiley! I think the armwarmers are my favorite thing out of the entire outfit <3!

Vest with felt rainbow "buckle" I inserted grommets to the front and laced it up, then covered the lacing with the rainbow. I used interfacing to get the "sleeves" to stick out, which was kind of a flop. But meh
&Last but not least,

The boot covers that shaved about twenty years off my life -_-! Haha.
These seemed so basic, but they took me the longest time. I ended up making them too small, but more grommets and some lacing fixed that! I wore them over my Demonia platforms. They were pretty much a flop because they ripped within one hour of wear.... :/! But I'm proud that I completed them, at least!
As I imagined, NO ONE knew who I was :/! I had people ask me if I was a carebear (WTF?!), Strawberry Shortcake(....) and even Wonder Woman! I was so upset, because I spent a good week on this costume and no one knew who I was. But my close friends all praised me for making an entire costume myself, so that made me feel good Smiley! Overall, I'm pretty happy with it.
This year I learned I prefer scary/gore-y to cute costumes. Next year I plan on being something scary ;]! No more cute costumes for me!

40  Light up ducky and Emo Joe in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Boo_its_Brittany on: September 05, 2009 11:00:26 PM

I scored this little guy for 2 bucks in a shop at Huntington Beach. :3!
I knew I wanted to make him into one of my crazy necklaces.
He lights up a bunch of different colors.

I got this little dude in a 50 cent machine at walmart.
My friend and I were strolling around and saw these and I read the names on the machine and his name was "Emo Joe" XD! After I got done laughing I set out to get one. About fifteen dollars and five bucks later, the both of us had our own Emo Joe, along with a couple reject ugly ones Tongue! We're pretty crazy. Haha.
Me being me, I made him into a necklace.
Ahhh. the memories.
