1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / mint A-line lolita JSK on: September 17, 2010 09:57:53 AM

gosurori pattern (im sorry i dont know which one exactly, it was a scan someone posted) i tweaked the color a little to make it more true to life. it looked really blue on my camera but its a really nice bright mint color! also, you cant see the sparkly on the chiffon that well. IRL its gorgeous! i made this in about....8 hours. Smiley i think the a-line shape is a life saver for those of us who think the typical gathered lolita skirt is really unflattering on them. (i.e.- me.) and it seems faster to make....less gathering! what do you think?

2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Rebel Rebel! on: April 26, 2010 07:37:19 PM
i just finished my costume for my friends bowie party! i have a better wig on order but it will take about a month to get here Sad this one from my old ziggy stardust costume (also posted on here) will have to do. im SUPER proud of this, its done really technically well and comfortable too! hooray!

and a reference photo:

anyone know where i can get a red plastic prop guitar? i have a real fender strat thats navy blue with a white pick guard but i dont really want to carry that around. Tongue
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / John Galliano Jacket from Showstudio on: April 09, 2010 11:23:02 AM
If youve been watching the sew-a-long boards you'll know this jacket. a second batch of us have attempted the dreaded John Galliano jacket. i just finished mine. i made some changes to the detailing (placement of the eyelets and snaps) and also made the long sleeve removable with snaps at the shoulder. i didnt plan on being able to actually WEAR such an avant garde piece but i really think its rockin. check out the sew-a-long boards to see some other craftsters take on the same piece!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / prep school blazer- FROM SCRATCH! on: January 02, 2010 02:04:15 PM
hey everyone! so i've wanted to find a navy blazer with a tartan interior for a loooong time, finally i just bought a pattern and decided to try it myself. now, if you've seen other things ive made on here you know i RARELY use a commercial pattern. this is not because im better at making patterns then they are but because i never learned how to use them properly. Tongue BUT but...this time i decided to try to make it EXACTLY following their directions, fully expecting to curse wildly and end up throwing it in a pile out of frustration never to be finished.

well ta da!
i actually did it! (though the way the instructions showed was much more difficult then necessary, they have you the lining in a WELL screwed up manner.)

the pattern: Mcall's M5935
the fabric: navy moleskin (in LOVE) and cotton tartan
the time: about 10 hours total?

this is probably the MOST technically difficult piece ive ever attempted and it turned out beautifully if i may say so myself! i hope i inspired other who think they cant make something like this!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Latest Lolita Lovely... on: December 27, 2009 10:10:14 AM

this dress was born out of finding this gorgeous fabric. its called 'doeskin' and its similar to micro suede or moleskin. its super soft and buttery. it felt so luxurious i HAD to have it! the gold color is actually just the reverse side of the same fabric! how easy! anyway, as usual, the pattern is self-drafted. hope you like.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / yes, another lolita project! on: November 14, 2009 05:46:49 PM
i just finished up this dress. it's a little sweeter style than i am but i still think its pretty. self-drafted pattern.
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / JACKIE O COSTUME! (complete!) on: October 12, 2009 05:10:47 PM
finally done! i made the dress and swing coat from basic lt. pink cotton broadcloth (its only a costume after all) using a vintage pattern i bought off ebay a while ago. it was my first time making a jacket and i didnt bother lining the whole thing. (again, costume.) i LOVE the wig i got! seller was wigelegance on ebay.

8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / lady gaga costume on: October 09, 2009 07:58:17 PM
i made this today for my sister. she has a better wig then this one, hers is long, straight, blonde with blunt bangs. this is just the best i had to show it off before i sent it to her. can u tell who its supposed to be?

some people mentioned that i should add a few more over-the-top accessories to really make it recogonizeable so i made a huge tulle head bow and added mirrored tiles to the glasses. i think its MUCH better now, yes?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / another lolita dress: metamorphose replica on: August 04, 2009 02:11:33 PM
hi! i found this amazing black cherry colored cotton/poly at SR Harris and i knew i wanted to make a replica of one of my favorite meta dresses out of it! (the pintuck JSK) sooo....tada!

the back is fully shirred Smiley my ruffler foot kept jamming (argh!) so i ended up HAND GATHERING the 30 so yards of ruffles. still- im glad i finished this- the pattern was drafted myself and im kinda impressed it pulled it off! lol

(edited to add pic of back) no action shots yet because im not really a lolita!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / quick t-shirt recon on: March 26, 2009 12:04:43 PM

ive had this one off printed shirt laying around for a while (sadly, i didn't do the lamb, thats by an artist called john grider.) but the problem was the lamb was printed facing the back of this shirt (oops) so...

i cut the sleeves off and cut across the top just under the collar, hemmed the top with enough room to run a braided piece of another old tshirt through to make a kind of backless halter. its so cute i cant wait to wear it this summer!

please excuse my crappy mirror pics. i live alone Tongue
