21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / little black dress on: July 06, 2008 07:00:23 PM
So On thursday night I found out that my cousin and aunt were coming into town
and that the next day we were going to the star trek exhibition in San Diego :]
so i thought id make a dress for that
.. only i ended up not even wearing it
this was the first time i ever put a zipper on a dress
so its pretty messed up
oh well
p.s. it looks better in person

feedback is appreciated :]
thanks for looking!
I did not use a pattern.I just kinda figured it out
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pink zombie blood splattered dress on: July 03, 2008 04:52:36 PM
hah well I've never made a dress from scratch before
so i just kinda went to town with some stretch knit fabric from joanns
then i used a dye and just kinda threw it on there and i thought that If there was a pink zombie and I killed it near a white version of this dress it might look like this
now it is washed and i'm pretty proud
the straps are braided

Feedback is very very appreciated
thanks Cheesy
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Mens clothes on: July 02, 2008 06:18:42 PM
I found this beautiful/cheesy fabric at joanns on clearance
its has moose's and its like a very soft cotton
for the life of me i cant think of the name of it
its very warm and soft and a winter fabric

I wanted to make my boyfriend (edward) a button up shirt kind of western style with a tan yolk and such
Im not a complete noob at sewing but i'm still a beginner
also is there no free patterens for mens shirts?!
I found a few Burda ones but i havent had very good luck with them in the past
any ideas or helpful tips are appreciated
thanks :]   
 Grin Grin Grin Grin
Also we are pretty young so "old grandpa" isnt really his style (even though its mine hah)
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my first shirt on: July 01, 2008 07:57:30 PM

Well Ive never made a shirt from scratch before
so I thought what the hey!
maybe I should have picked something a bit nicer....
well i used a burda pattern http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/36
It looked cute enough on the model!!
damn her and her pale/skinny-ness

well here it is.....
sorry my pictures are sideways...

its a lot less flattering in person..
I think i'll give it away
also I'm wearing a black tank top under it since I fits my body all sorts of crazy

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / skirt into dress on: July 01, 2008 07:50:31 PM

so I had this lovely skirt that I bought at the Salvation Army the day after Christmas for $2.00 and it was a very comfy jersey/knit fabric
the only problem was that it was too long and unflattering
Before: (sorry about the blur)

and after I took every piece apart I realized that I could have just adjusted the top but whatever

and an action shot (I'm sorry I look so stupid, I wore this to take my senior portraits ha. and yes with the tiara)

also i have no idea what my hand is doing.
maybe I'm getting ready to punch a tiger?

26  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / greek shoes on: June 17, 2008 07:25:32 PM

and a bottle of decoupage
and a book on Greek mythology 
and viola! (sp?)


thanks for looking
p.s. if only i wore a size 7.5

29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / nixon make-up bag on: June 11, 2008 08:32:22 PM
ha. well this is my first post ever.
you see I've never sewn a zipper before, then my friend Amanda told me how, and over the phone that's sorta hard.
well here it is.
p.s. you can't really tell but the face is Nixon's.
and yes I made the stencil.
