1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My pill pak looked like a butt cheek on: January 28, 2009 07:50:33 AM
So I decided to change it! After a harrowing week taking the wrong kind of birth control, then discovering that I had prematurely tossed my lovely Personal Pak from OTC, I couldn't stand looking at the pasty peach expanse of my birth control pak. Yuck. Anyway, a few minutes in intimate seclusion with a sharpie produced this...um..beauty?

Yeah- How about amazing!  Or gorgeous?  Or maybe- If you don't get an A your teacher is damaged.  Really, great work!

Oh I will, no worries there.  Lots of wedding pictures to come.  Now I have to work up the courage to start on my petticoat....

Thanks!  Okay, as far as the ensembles go, the groom will be wearing a burgundy colored tailcoat suit, a matching orange shirt (which I tailored myself, buy that was FUN) and a lime green, satin tie.  We haven't decided on the shape yet.  My skirt will have a crinoline to make it poofy, a bottom layer of said lime green satin, and a top layer of burgundy chiffon.  Yeah baby!

As for my crinoline help: I have a waistband, and two tiers of material cut out for the lining, as well as three twenty inch wide, 120 inch long strips of crinoline.  I am thinking that I will sew the crinoline to the top of the bottom layer, so that it will all be on the outside.  Is this wrong?  Should the crinoline edges be sewn inside the seam?  Am I going about this in a backwards way?

So, I finished my wedding corset yesterday.  O my o my, I really underestimated this beauty.  The test corsets all came together within a day, and I was working on this for about three days.  Oi vey, so friggin worth it!  This thing weighs quite a bit, with over one hundred inches of metal boning, a denim stiffening layer, and a lining.  Yummy!  I feel like a warrior just touching this thing!  The skirt is still pieces of fabric, but that will come.  Oh, I could really use some advice on making a crinoline petticoat.  Any help would be very appreciated!
Enough hoopla, heres some piccies!

And some of the lining, and the modesty flap.  I still need to put in eyelets, which I am a little scared to do!  I will add action pics as soon as I get that done though.

Hope you like it.  Don't forget, I need petticoat help!  Thanks!

It's really cute, and I love the bag. But the best part is your smile!  You look so happy!

It IS beautiful, and you have the patience of a saint!  One thing I've learned about being an individual is that there are lots of people who aren't, and they are terrified of anything outside their squares.  Their ridicule doesn't come from a true and accurate judgment of your work, it comes from their inability to appreciate the wild and wonderful.  Which is exactly what this skirt is!  Bravo, and keep your chin waaaaay up!

Hunh...I see no 'childish' here.  Maybe you should ask yourself if YOU like how THEY dress, and then decide if you should take their fashion advice.  I, for one would never, evereverever follow any fashion advice from my siblings, cause...well, no.  Just no.
