Wow, really great job!!  The cups look fantastic- your sewing is impeccable.  Your sister will be extremely pleased!

I seriously need to make a strapless bra... my band size is 30 but only pricey brands make it, so I wear 32, but strapless will never stay up on me!

Cute!  With the remaining fabric you could make a small tote bag or little bags for things like cameras and iPods, or a hair bow?

And next time you're pushing elastic through casing, put a safety pin on the end... it will take you five minutes instead of an hour Smiley

This is very cute- I've been thinking about making something very much like this myself!  Did you use a pattern?

And it's so not children's clothing!  I'm 22 and I wear stuff like this all the time Smiley

This is such a great recon!  I would never have guessed that it wasn't store-bought!

I think this dress is totally adorable!  But because you asked, I do think you should reconsider the back.  I'd like to see how it fits a model with a smaller bust- that might solve the problem entirely.  You can tell that it's being pulled more than it's supposed to.  If it's still gaping so much on a smaller-busted girl though, maybe you could add buttons down the back until where the zipper starts?

It's gorgeous though!  I really like your fabric combination, and the ruffle at the neckline is precious.
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The Flash, and a 4-Hour Harley Quinn on: October 28, 2009 03:54:10 PM

So Saturday was my boyfriend's birthday/Halloween party.  We do it every year and everyone always dresses according to one theme- this year was comic books!  I made his costume well in advance, but due to another costume order (from a girl who wasn't at the party) I didn't have a chance to make mine until FOUR HOURS before the party.  (I drafted the pattern the night before, but I only had four hours to cut and sew and add the zipper and make the diamonds!  Aaaah!)  Also, I originally made it fully-lined, but it was SO UNCOMFORTABLY HOT that I had to cut the lining out... frantically.

This was only my second attempt at drafting and sewing bodysuits and I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.  (The first one was a loose-fitting panda costume, so this was really my first time making a bodysuit that fits the body closely.)

I used spandex for both.  His lightning bolts are made of a strange plasticky canvas material, and my diamonds are just spandex, which is double-sided-taped to foam, which is then double-sided-taped to me.  They look a little sketchy though.  It's too bad I didn't have time to make the collar, gloves, and wrist ruffles, but I still think it looked pretty cool... and everyone recognized it!

I might turn it into a Queen of Hearts costume for the actual night of Halloween!  I'm still throwing ideas around in my head, but I really just want to wear it again but make it look like a (relatively) different costume.

Thanks for looking!
