11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Proud of my first dress...sooo theres a bunch of pictures :) on: August 27, 2008 03:40:24 PM
Very nice work, keep it up.

And you're right with the age period of the "look". I had a similar dress when I was in Jr. High (1958 or 1959). I loved the dress. I thought it was a very becoming style. I also had one with a full skirt.  And yes, to you, I am most likely older then dirt.

Have you considered photo copying your designs (cards)?  You should be able to work the way you have before with the lighter weight paper copies. You could also have the added perk of being able to change the size of the card or even use some trading cards, pictures from magazines, or even throw in a picture of your fiance playing ball - if available.

If you choice to use the orginial cards, then I personally think you might be better off using a stronger glue and then sealing everything with as many layers as it takes to make is smooth.

I want to add that this is not my speciality and I haven't done this type of thing in years.

Good luck with your project!

You did really good. You reproduced the original picture really well. Keep at it, you've got what it takes and every project will get better and better. Don't worry about the back of this piece as no one will see it after you frame it. If you're careful in the future, the backs will start getting neater. It is possible to fill in all the area with the threads. All it takes is patience. The colored pencil idea to fill in was a good way to handle it this time.  Keep up the good work.

Your work is very nice, but that's not the reason I am choosing to write. I just had to say thank you for posting. Seeing your pin up girl gave me warm fuzzy feelings. My mother had done an entire series of these back in maybe the early 50's. (Actually I have 2 of them packed up in a box of keepsakes - somewhere). She chose to applique the clothes and then embroider everything else. She had made them on guest towels. When I was a very little girl, Mom would put them out when company would come. We (of course) knew better then to touch them. I can see them hanging from the towel bar in my minds eye. Thank you again. I think when I return to the mainland in September I will try to locate them and put them where I can appreciate them. Thank you again and keep up the good work.

Very ingenious. I would never have thought to do this. Congratulations on a great project. I'm sure he will love it for a really long time.

Spectacular!  How to chose between the 2 quilts. I think I agree with you. I like the other one better. This one is really grand.

Unbelievably beautiful. This is my kind of quilt. Not one I would most likely make, but one I do lust for.

Very ingenious. I love it.  personally know at least 1 little boy who would love it. I'll put it on my 'round tuit list.

Now that you made the first quilt, watch out. It won't be as hard to decide on the pattern for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.   Smiley   Very nice work.
