1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Military/The Count inspired Coat on: September 12, 2011 05:52:11 AM
One project at my patternmaking course at university was to construct a costumized coat for ourselves. as the discussed topic was sleeve attachments it was a must-have in the construction. i decided to do a raglan attachment and as im not the casual one it had to be slightly spectacular  Grin
the coat consists of an upper part that is gathered at the bottom edge, an included belt and a wide assymmetric bottom. as already said it has raglan sleeves with inserted shoulder scales. i did a small stand-up collar, maybe i will change that one day to a high stand-up or something else. closure is a concealed button panel and press buttons at the collar and the belt.
the sleeves have wide cuffs that are winged to the outside. you can also find this wing shape at the flap of the piped pockets, the trenchcoat inspired flap at the back and the assymmetric front.
the shell fabric is a black wool fabric, maybe its felt, im not sure. for lining i used purple polyester taffeta

thank you!!!

I love the origami skirt. Was it difficult to make?
noooo, it was pretty easy!! its basically a rectangle that is as wide as you want the skirt and as long as your waist plus the skirt ength. then you flip the shorter edge to the longer and sew one seam  Grin well, if you want a skirt i would sew a waistband, but its just one more seam!
i posted the link to the tute at the end of the first post.

thank you all so much!!
La-Fairy, you can have a look at the website of burda, they sell patterns online, theyre even printable at home. i doubt that they still have this pattern because its from 2004, but maybe you can find a similar one! i wasnt happy with this pattern too, but changed it so ong til i was content with  Cheesy

really sweet, i love that monster fabric, but had bad luck with it, i found it on ebay too but one didnt ship to germany and the other auctions were ridiculously expensive or just fat quarters...
you did a great job on the damask dessin one!!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Three Years of Skirts on: August 28, 2011 10:50:49 AM
As the title says, i made a post with some skirts i made during the last three years. i made some more but gave them away, mostly without taking photos... i really like skirts, i wear them nearly every day, same with dresses because i cant stand long trousers. though i wear some shorts, so i included my trousers in this post, because there arent much  Cheesy

a layered ruffle skirt with creme lace and a belt, the fabric is eyelet embroidered, forgot to say: this was made with a pattern from patrones magazine

a Beetlejuice inspired underbust skirt made of white and black striped cotton twill

"gypsy punk" capri pants, made of corduroy and jacquard, with tiny tassels and fringe trim at the hem

an ancient inspired layered ruffle skirt, the top founce is asymmetric, i added a trim at the lower edge of the yoke that ends in two tasses

a bodycon military jersey skirt with red piping and golden crest shank buttons

Steamy, lacy bloomers, with a military twist, made of sateen and viscose lace at the back, the piping and the buttons

my "Lampshade skirt", originally a pleated skirt, but it looked awful and i sewed a band to the lower edge to create a kind of bubble skirt

a pleated zipper skirt, if the zippers are open a pleat with self-painted pink bats comes out, as closure theres a hook and eye and two satin ribbons for tying

my beloved gartered newspaper skirt, the design is lip service but i didnt like the original because of the pleather, it has three ruffles made of newspaper print jersey, i sewed on lace at the edges, the yoke got a gartered shape and i sewed on eyelet tape and added buckles to it for possible gathering

a miniskirt made of this amazing concert poster fabric, i dewed on hook and eye take as closure

black and green striped skirt with some "bondage" straps, its really really old, the stripes dont match at the yoke Embarrassed

hope you like it and thank you for looking!!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reconstructed Shirts Roundup (dresses, skirt and top) on: August 26, 2011 09:46:04 AM
one year ago i began to get interest in reconstructing t-shirts. actually, my first sewn project ever, eight years ago, was reconstructed though i didnt know that word back then  Grin
as i really enjoy going to concerts every now and then and i just feel insulted by all these fantastic mens shirts and the boring and bulky "girlie"-shirts i decided to hop on the train of reconstruction!!

a Gogol Bordello shirt i changed into a halterneck longtop but wasnt satisfied so i changed it again in a dress with the "origami skirt" and matching straps

a Turbo A.C.s shirt turned to a ballon like bottom with a halterneck top made of white and red striped jersey

a skirt made from a "killers" shirt my father brought me from amsterdam. it does not show the well-known band!

Smoke Blow!!! i just love them!! the bottom is a spirograph skirt, the black swirls were printed with shaving cream and fabric paint

my beloved Nim Vind shirt that turned into an off-shoulder dress, the bats were printed by me and freezer paper

this is an old one, a simple tube top made from a shirt, i "gathered" one side with a hair tie  Cheesy

a Misfits shirt, i turned into an a-line bottom and made a shaped top from purple jersey, again with printed bats

my boyfriend gave me the shirt someone else gave him some years ago, its from a band called deviates, i turned the target to the front and made a fitted halterneck dress

a pin up shirt i turned into a halterneck dress with a reddotted black jersey at the top, bottom and sides

forgot one: a clockwork orange dress, the top is made of leopard print jersey and theres a tied bow included in the pattern

summary: this post is long; im a halterneck addict; i still have some shirts laying around

thank you for looking!!

as you might know (or not) i registered here a while ago but lack of confidence for posting my then crappy projects i got lost...
now i want to post some things and trust me, there are a lot of stuff i made the last three years... so, to prevent spamming the board with all things at the same time i start with a profect im, yeah, really proud of and will add others from time to time.
so, i like to introduce you to my burtonesque biker jacket i made three month ago. the pattern is from an old burda magazine i had to change to my size and also had to construct a pattern for the lining.
the fabric is some kind of cotton twill, the lining acetat taffeta.
it consists of an asymmetric zipper closure with a band at the bottom that is closed with a press button, like the cuffs too.
the collar was probably the most tricky part as im always no good when it comes to revers collars... Undecided
i painted the cameo with the deer and the bats with acrylic paint and attached two elbow patches at the shell sleeves that have a spiral topstitching.
what else to say? idk, i think it cost me about 30 euros for material and took me 16 hours of my lifetime.
oh, and my dress form is a bit to big for wearing clothes that are my size  Cheesy

thank you for taking time to have a look!!
