1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / dresses,skirts and whatnot... (cave full of pictures) on: May 20, 2008 08:53:47 PM
so...I'm real lazy on uploading pictures so most of these were made months ago.

this was my attempt at a lolita type skirt..thing...I actually hate it but don't have the heart to toss it. the fabric has chandeliers all over the place and there's 2 layers of green tulle, zips up the back and buttons up top(or it would if I spent the time to put in one)

unlike that last skirt, I LOVE this one(and so does my aunt, who wanted to steal it from me Angry ), it's got lining underneath that never got hemmed, which you will notice more and more as this post goes on. invisible pockets on both side and invisible zipper at center back. this skirt was actually suppose to imitate one that I got from urban outfitters, I got the waistband and pocket pattern from that skirt and I sewed together 164 inches of that orange fabric and gathered it allllll up to the waistband, pooofy!!!!!

got this pattern from a japanese magazine, still haven't made a real waist...tie..thing.

based this off of a burdastyle  long sleeve t-shirt pattern, the collar buttons up, and honestly, the collar is not as high as it should be, and the hem is not finished on here either, I'm putting another band of the funny white fabric that I got from taiwan down there, no way am I wearing that in public the way it is now.

so last weekend was super hot, especially at work(I work at a tiiiiiny bakery full of ovens), so I thought, I'm going to need some shorts, me being as broke as I was(got paid today, wooohoo!), I made my first pair of pants and made the pattern myself too! and you can see here AGAIN, the hem is not...hemmed.

well thank you for reading through my super long post! and I hope you liked it!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / burgundy lace corset on: April 08, 2008 08:57:30 PM
finally finished!!! I kept putting it off and only doing tiny bits of it at a time. well...the pattern is from Butterick 4254 view c, I originally bought the pattern for view a/b but all that boning looked intimidating and this being my first corset I figured I should try something simpler first. the shell is just cotton broadcloth, interfaced with canvas, lined with this thick lining fabric with felt on the back, it's weird.... and the lace has plastic beads down the center, the lacing is just ribbon.




some other angles..

oh and yes I know the back waist looks funny, I think it's a little too big...or I just suck at sewing. the world will ever know.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / lacey hoodie! on: March 27, 2008 07:28:10 PM
i've been feeling adventurous lately, I made my first purse, I'm working on my first corset, and this was my first time making a hoodie as well as sewing with stretch fabric, I don't have a serger so it was probably more troublesome then it should have been. I took a long sleeve shirt pattern from burdastyle and added seam allowance at center front, drafted up pockets(which ended up too small), and a big ass hood! I am a huge fan of big hoods, I actually didn't mean for it to end up that big, but I am glad it did.



and here you see how big the hood really is
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / duffel purse on: March 27, 2008 06:32:04 PM
it kind of looks like a mini duffel bag, it's got this canvasy fabric on the outside and I interfaced it with actual canvas and lined it with wool, I've never made a purse before and it worked out pretty good imo, oh and the straps are webbing with ribbon sewn over it.


I messed up on the zipper, the sipper was 2 inches too short, I drafted the pattern for a 16" zipper and the store only had 14" Sad


an "action shot" as you kids call it  Tongue

comments/criticisms welcome.
