41  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / More pants! Vogue 2907 on: August 06, 2008 05:02:13 PM
I picked up some summer weight wool in a white and blue stripe and made another pair of pants from the Vogue 2907 pattern.  The zipper and I had an epic struggle due to the fact that I wasn't totally focusing on sewing at the time and by the time I fixed that I decided to just not do the welt pockets in the back.  Excuse the wrinkles, I shoved it in a bag to take in the car to put the buttons on.



Based on someone's creation on the BurdaStyle page I added some buttons to the pants at about knee level and sewed in some straps so the pants can be turned up as needed.

I might move the buttons and straps down a bit.  I think I'd like the turn up to sit a bit lower.
42  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / McCalls 5575 - designed for teeny-bopper sized boobies (not mine) on: June 16, 2008 07:08:02 PM
Alright, this is a Hilary Duff pattern, so I should have known better than to think it would be sized for actual adult women.  But it was on sale (99c) and looked cute so I bought it.  Anyway, I cut it out to the biggest size (which is a 12 on my pattern) which just covers the girls, but then is too big around the waist and back and had to be nipped in a bit back there.  Luckily, I used a busy print so you can't really tell where I gathered in places.  Yume did the same pattern here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=251688.0 and it shows the actual construction alot better.

As a dress:

Not sure about that though (WAY too much knobby Irish knees),  I might just wear it as a shirt with jeans.  Pulled up underneath (I'll probably just do this with safety pins for a while til I decide):

43  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / looking for a blouse pattern with a neck insert thingy... on: June 16, 2008 09:33:45 AM
I'm looking for a blouse pattern that has some sort of neck insert that I could put in in another fabric.  I kind of sketched it out in paint.

Anyone know where I could find something like this?  I looked online at burda, vogue, simplicity and butterick/mccalls but didn't find anything with the insert.

I guess I could make a pattern myself, but I'd prefer someone else to have done it.
44  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Death to ugly fanny (excuse my language, British people) packs on: June 08, 2008 02:34:30 PM
It high tourist season in my fair city and today I saw multiple people wearing those horrible black bulky fanny packs (or belly bags if you prefer).  I hate these bags with a passion and decided that something MUST BE DONE. 

A little while ago I saw some "hip bags" on a fashion site of some sort and have seen a few people out in Coach versions of a belly bag.  They're slim and keep close to you and are made from something more fashion forward than black ripstop nylon.  What I made is from a sample piece of discontinued upholstery fabric.  The belt goes through a slot on the bag so the the d-rings can be positioned in different places as you'd like.  I haven't quite figured out what I'm going to do with the tail, but I'll probably cut it a bit shorter. 

I cut the belt on the bias so it should hold up decently to the stretch of being worn.  The main bag is divided into two halves with just some top stitching.  It was pretty easy to make once I thought it through.
45  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / macro challenge: anemone-like flower on: May 13, 2008 10:05:53 AM

Here's my macros challenge entry.  I didn't do anything in photoshop except the flip the image (I liked it better in reverse); the colors are completely real.  I have no idea what kind of a flower it is, I saw it yesterday in my community garden when I went out to survey the storm damage.  The garden is in shambles.  A tree fell across some people's plots and there's up to four inches of standing water in other places.  These flowers were a bit beat up, but still standing.
46  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / my take on infinity shoes on: May 01, 2008 06:52:47 PM
I loved these shoes: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225732.0 and so went out and immediately bought all the materials.  And then did nothing for months which seems to be a common sewing/crafting theme.

Anyway, I used a pair of shoes I just didn't really wear any more.  Poor things, it was hard to cut them up.

And made these:

47  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / new favorite pants - Vogue 2907 on: May 01, 2008 04:04:31 PM
I bought this pattern a while ago, but was intimidated by the idea of pants.  I bought some cheap heavy but soft cotton and carefully followed the pattern and it really turned out great.  I learned alot about doing the welt pockets which really aren't that bad and the fly.  While they're not perfect they're super comfortable and I've been wearing them alot.  Definitely my new favorite pants.  Now maybe I'll make them as dressy pants using some nicer fabric.

Next time I'll be better about catching those little triangle at the edges of the welt pockets while sewing the pocket.

48  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / bubble hem dress, McCall's 5317 on: May 01, 2008 03:57:47 PM
I made this dress before Easter but have taken an age to post it.  I did the skirt portion twice because while the knit has pleny of give, the lining doesn't and when I sewed it all to the waist band I couldn't get the thing to stretch open to get over my shoulders.  I ended up only sewing the lining across the front and back of the waist band leaving about four inches loose on either side.  The waist band stretches on the sides to allow me to put it on.  The instructions don't address this issue and if I made the band big enough to get over my shoulders without stretching the whole thing would look pretty messy.  Nevertheless, I really like the dress.

49  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / summer skirt -burda 8090 on: March 25, 2008 03:47:16 PM
I finished this skirt a few days ago and was pretty happy with it.  It's the Burda 8090 pattern from their online set of free patterns, which is a fast skirt once you go through all the printing out and taping up of the pattern (free has to have a catch).  I added a pocket because I was influenced by the pocket loving crafters on the board.
