13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Black & White Rockabilly Dress on: December 07, 2009 01:35:33 AM
I made this dress today using Vogue 8184.  I made view C but used different straps.  This dress was inspired by the iron on patches.  I knew I wanted a rockabilly style dress to use them on and when I saw this pattern I knew it would be perfect.  This dress was super easy and only took a few hours to make.

Here is a close up of the swallow patches.  I bought them from the markets in Soutbank.

Comments and Criticism welcome!

love the skirt, but i always thought a beignet was a kind of donut lol!!

Ha ha! Yeah Colette Patterns first collection was all named after cake type things. There was eclair, macaron, beignet and parfait.  Her new line is all named after tea. The dress I want from her new collection is called Ceylon.

I finished this skirt on Friday night and I am so so so happy with it! I have already worn it twice out to dinner and to a christening over the weekend.  I used the Beignet skirt pattern from Colette Patterns.  This pattern came together so easily it was a breeze to make. I think it total it took me 5 hours to make and that was while having problems with my machine playing up so it probably could be made even quicker.

This was my first time making button holes and also using silky lining. They were both made super easy because of the great instructions Sarai puts with her patterns. I highly recommend these patterns to anyone who sews.  I am planning on making another one of these in black to wear to work.

I have made that blue hat twice. Once in red and once in white. I have worn them both heaps of times and always get compliments. I think you should wear it out. You'd be surprised at how many other people like it. By the way I love the colour you chose!
17  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Dorothy on: October 31, 2009 09:07:52 PM
This is the first year I have ever done Halloween because it is not really big here in Australia.  I decided to go as Dorothy!

I made my dress.  I just did a basic gathered waistband skirt and attached a square bib to the front.  All the other stuff I had already in my wardrobe. 

I also tied blue ribbons in my hair.

This is me and my sister.  She went as a gypsy and used all clothes that she already had in her wardrobe.

And a quick photo of my boyfriends outfit.  He went as Clarke Kent.

Wow! Thanks for all the comments guys! They are all so nice.

i've worked with one pattern so far, and it was such a nightmare Sad maybe i'll give this brand a shot

This is only the 2nd pattern I have ever used. My first experience with a pattern like yours was a nightmare.  These patterns are definately a lot easier to follow.

Is the lining part of the pattern or did you just add it? 

The lining is part of the dress.  The pattern comes with full instructions on how to make and insert the lining as well.  I don't think I could have done it otherwise because I have never done lining before.
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Birthday Dress on: October 29, 2009 11:25:46 PM

This is the dress that I made to wear to my barbecue for my 22nd birthday last week.  The pattern I used is called the Macaron from Colette Patterns.  If you have never used a Colette pattern I highly recommend you give them a go.  They are so easy to use.  The instructions are perfect and the pattern pieces fit together so easily.  It was the least stressful clothing item I have made.  And that is saying something considering it was my first time doing an invisible zip and it is fully lined.

I love the ties on the dress.  They looked a bit funny tied in a bow so I just tied them in a knot.

Comments and Criticisms welcome!
