231  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / grey hooded dress on: August 07, 2008 09:17:39 PM
this is another one i made a bit ago. i'm going through and finally taking pictures of everything now that i have a working camera.

i went through a big thing about loving hoods on unexpected pieces. this one is made of shiny grey knit. its great because its thick enough that it didn't need a lining and the fabric doesn't roll or fray so i didn't bother hemming it. (i don't have a serger so working with stretch annoys me anyhow) It's all cut out of one piece of fabric, hood included. only ONE seam here, the one up the front which i sewed with elastic to give it that gathered look. I LOVE this dress, so simple, so comfy and easy to wear. i have the hood pinned to my hair so it wont fall. If anyones interested i could probably make some sort of shoddy tutorial Tongue i just kinda made it up as i went along

232  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / fall vintage style dress on: August 07, 2008 08:49:25 PM
here we go-- first post (well, of something i made)!!:
i made this dress this spring but im waiting for fall to better wear it.... i made it from this old vintage pattern i got off ebay. it was probably one of the easiest things ive ever made. i love the shape of it and the fit but it was kinda plain so i added the little embroidered doe and fiddleheads. i cant wait to wear it more!!

and the original pattern  it came from:

it looks like a bib. it actually would make more sense on a bib, since theoretically that would save your wardrobe from a saucin'--literally cutting your cleaning time in half.

ive been sewing for YEARS and RARELY achieve perfection. but i think overall perfection isnt necessary. and trying and experimenting is the best way to learn! i hope you enjoyed making this and will continue with it!

if you love ribbon and crazy poofy dresses you would have such fun in my closet. i have so so many ridiculus dresses, i collect them. Smiley lolita dresses, tutus, and even a few huge frilly betsy johnsons! *squee~!*

i noticed it looks like you stuffed them through their little backs, which means you have to sew the ugly-showing-seam right down their backs! why not try leaving the opening in the tail or belly next time? that way they wont get that little ridge back from the hand-sewn closure. just a tip! they really ARE adorable...
