Thanks, Gouda!

This was for week #1 of PR&P, where you were supposed to use cuts on a bias.  I did a circle skirt, doubled up, ran stitching lines across the bias and cut in between them.  They will fray nicely.  The sequined piece is a purchased appliqu.  It is sewed on very wellthat took about 2 hours.

This is for week #2 of Project Run and Play, the challenge was to sew something inspired by a fashion icon.  I was looking more for designers that inspire me, and no one inspires me more than Alexander McQueen.  

The fabric is painted, took me about 4 hours and is my own design.  The frosting on the cake are little iron on skulls in cream.  Alexander McQueen used a lot of skull motifs in his work.

Then here are just some basic wardrobe pieces for school. I did it in a S.W.A.P. so everything would match.  She is pretty happy with them. Smiley

Patterns are my own.

Thanks for looking and any comments!

Here's some of my recent hairstyles.  I really like doing braids.  I colored my hair again last night so it is a nice deep red again.  My roots don't show now LOL!

This one is kind of hard to see.  I put my growing out fringe into a spiral (two strand) braid and straightened the rest.

Well, that is probably good enough.  I took all these pictures with my self timer.  I have a style blog that I put things on and off again.  It helps me keep track of different hairstyles I have done and allows me to show off clothes I have made.

I love seeing all the different colors you ladies do on your hair.  I can't get away with that at my job...red is as far as I can go!

I *LOVE* your girl's bday dress!  I want one for me!  Well, not really - it wouldn't flatter me, but I LOVE it anyway.  Smiley  And I love how you did the pockets on the pink camo shorts - doesn't look too hard - was it pretty simple?  'Cuz I like simple, and I think I might be able to do that to some shorts/pants for the kiddos!

Great work, as always!


The pockets were not very hard, actually.  You cut out out the pocket and then cut a piece the length of the outside of the pocket by about 1.5" on the bias.  It needs to be on the bias to curve around the corner.  Attach one side to the pocket and then iron a good 1/4" seam on the other.  Pin in place on the shorts and then stitch.  On the lower corner I pleated it inward to give the pocket a bit more body, too.

As I have posted the stuff I made for me since the last post, I figured I should post what I have made for the little Prince and Princess since last time.

Bear with me, there are lots of pictures.

Most of these are patterns I drafted, but let me know if you have a question on any of them.   I know there are similar tutorials or free patterns for some online.  

Birthday dress this year -

She hasn't even attempted to wear this one and it has been done for about 3 months or so

Costume for school program:

Vest and tie, but not the shirt:

Some clothes going to orphanages:

Thanks for looking and any comments! Smiley

Great job - I love all the design elements you used in creating it!

Is the outfit in the first couple of pictures separates or a dress? I love it regardless but I'm curious.
Secondly, I adore how you styled the white/bright pink floral and lace maxi skirt and tank. I'm not usually a massive fan of matching separates but this works so well with the black jacket and long layered necklaces.
And finally; you have such a beautiful, radiant smile! Please share that with the world, it lights up your entire face.

Yes, that first one is a dress.  I made the second into separates because I wanted to be able to use the pieces with different tops and bottoms.

And thanks about my smile!  Grin

Thanks so much, both of you!

PixieSkull - do not let swimsuits intimidate you!  They really are not that hard.  I have been making swimming suits for my daughter for years and they are no harder than anything else.  I drafted this suit pattern off a RTW one that I owned that fit me.  Once you have a pattern that fits you can change it up.

leopardstripes - Yes, I do draft my own patterns, but some of them are really just copies of RTW.  I sometimes use Glad Press N' Seal to do it, but a lot of times I just lay a garment out and trace it.  Usually this means I need to still modify it a bit to make the pattern fit the best, but once you get a few well-fitting patterns you can start changing them up.  I generally don't buy any patterns anymore.  I have some jacket and pants patterns I want to try to make, but most of my shirts and skirts are ones that I made.

Well, I seem to be in a sewing lull, so I will share what I have made since my last post here.  I drafted all these patterns, some were from RTW and some were just from measurements.

Skirt only

Thanks for looking! Smiley
