i love em all! the last one is sooooooo gorgeous! i might need to pick up the pattern and see if i can get someone to make it for me. my sewing skills are all by hand. i fear my poor sewing machine for whatever reason.

don't fear your machine! this pattern was so easy and straightforward, that i think it would be an excellent project for someone not totally comfortable with a sewing machine. just have someone on hand who can answer questions like "what do they mean by selvedge edge?". i call my mother.
42  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / three recent projects on: April 12, 2009 02:16:55 PM
okay, they aren't really that recent, but i haven't posted them yet.

this is a hat i made this fall, from Malabrigo chunky yarn, with some sparkly thread added. it is very warm and cozy!

these two scarves i made were inspired by this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=256203.0

the first scarf is made with Noro Kureyon yarn, and the second scarf is made from a 100% cotton yarn, the brand i cannot remember. I gave the purple scarf to my mother for christmas.

Thanks for looking!

Allright, I haven't posted any of my sewing projects in a while, so here are five of them all at once! i just bought a brand new machine (my first NEW one ever!!!), so i have been sewing constantly.

this first dress i made using the tutorial from pink hickey (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252249.0). I frickin love it. it's the second dress i've made from her lovely tutorial, and i wear it all the time.

close-up of the fabric:

this is a skirt i made from some sparkly one-dollar fabric from walmart. It's a high-waisted skirt, and i used interfacing in the waistband. it has no zipper, but i can pull it over my head just fine. the pictures don't do justice the glorious sparkles. i didn't use a pattern.

This is a dress i made from Vogue pattern V8411. The pattern claimed to be easy, but i found it very confusing, so i mostly just winged it. I think it came out looking a lot like it was supposed to, except i didn't hem the bottom. i made it with a really light weight jersey, and leaving the bottom raw just seemed to suit it better. also this picture makes the color look weird, it's a little more teal in real life, and less electric-blue.

This is a dress i actually made five years ago, when i was 18. I had been living in Ghana for several months, where  I learned how to sew from a seamstress in the village where i was living. I had been able to use a sewing machine, but she taught me everything important about sewing, such as how to make darts and shape the waist of a dress and draft my own patterns. So i bought this fabric and when i came back to the US i whipped up this dress in one day. i love it, but it's hard to find the right time to wear tie-dye.

This dress i made using the New Look pattern 6557. it's a great pattern. the fabric i used was really heavy, i'm not sure what it was intended for, but probably not summery dresses. it's a really bright yellow, the first picture is the most true to color. I lined it in bright green and embroidered green sea creatures on it. i intend to add some more, maybe some seaweed, and cut holes in the yellow fabric for bubbles. and yes, the octopus only has seven arms. he lost one in a fight with a seamonster.

thanks for looking! any comments are always appreciated!

so cute! i love it. good job on combining two patterns to create something totally awesome. and zippers can be  so f-ing difficult. i have no idea how people manage to make their zippers all pretty and invisible.

i LOVE it!  one day i was searching through patterns at the thrift store and came across one for a dress so similar to this. i was so excited, because i love this style, but i wasn't sure how one could interpret such a bizarre 80s fashion into a current and wearable fashion. and you totally did that! you took the fabulousness of 80s crazyness, and toned it down and glammed it up and made a smokin hot dress. rock on!

that is so cool! the pictures and the dress totally look like something i would see in vogue magazine. love it. but wherever would you get to wear such a fabulous gown?
