41  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flowergirl dress on: August 09, 2009 01:28:32 PM
I got married about 3 weeks ago. I made a little flower girl dress to match my brides maids. She looked so cute in it. I also posted all other crafty bits included in my wedding here if you are interested in more pictures and details. Thanks for looking. It was the best day of my life. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=316519.0
I am looking forward to your comments.

42  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My beautiful wedding day and it's crafty little details on: August 09, 2009 01:25:03 PM
I got married on the 25th July this year and being a crafty person I of course wanted as much as possible to be hand made. Unfortunately I could not make the bridesmaids dresses myself since 2 of my bridesmaids live in Germany and the third one and I are living in the UK. Fittings were just not possible to arrange. But fortunately I work in a bridal shop and got a good discount.
I also had a cute little flower girl and decided to make at least her dress myself and try to match it as close to the adults as possible. I also decorated a basket, my friend Julie found on a car boot sale for me. My mum did my flowers, the girl's flowers and all table decorations. My friend Julie made me a top hat for the reception and a fascinator for my mum. All in all a pretty crafty input from all sides.
We all did our own hair and make up as well.
It was the best day of my life and I could do it over and over again.

Here are some pictures documenting the day and everyone's crafty input.

my veil was a nightmare and always blowing all over the place but here you can see my hair and the flowers

My mum's fascinator (2nd left) was made by my friend and colleague, flowers by my mum and I did my own hair and make up that is blown everywhere here.

a bit better shot of my mums head piece

details of the little couple my mum added to the bouquet. They were made from pipe cleaners and polystyrene balls.

I made the flower girl dress myself. It is made from organza with a light lining underneath. I also adds little yellow flower sequins. All my flowers were yellow. I thought it is a nice contrast to the turquoise dresses.
It happened to go well with the colours of the venue. This was not planed by the way. I forgot that fact after booking the place but when I saw these first pictures (I'll be getting the photographers ones soon)
I realised how colour coordinated it all was.
The little dress went well with the adult ones as well despite the fact that they were in shantung and the little one in organza.
Group shot

The little basket to go with Emma's dress

My hat, unfortunately you can not see all the detail on it on the pictures. I will add some better ones when I get them. She added dyed lace in yellow and turquoise, pearls, little butterflies...to it.
Of course later on it was worn by several people.

We also received some crafty wedding presents. Cards made by friends' children (I am German, my husband is English so we got cards in German here)
Sorry for the massive overload of pictures but I wanted to share my special day and all efforts put into it with you.

43  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / One pattern two dresses on: June 16, 2009 12:51:11 AM
I made these two dresses a while ago. They are both from the same pattern but the look is quiet different do to the nature of the fabrics.
The first one is red cotton fabric with white pin polka dots.

and this one is made in a shot taffeta. I wore this one to a wedding a few weeks ago. I attached a flower corsage to the top.

Let me know what you think.
comments and criticism are much appreciated
44  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Top skirt and dress on: June 14, 2009 02:26:46 PM
Hi there,
I haven't posted anything new for a while but that doesn't mean I have been lazy. I just never took pictures of anything and things kept piling up.

I made this skirt a few weeks ago for the 40s/50s swap. My partner is/was the same size as me so I made her a pencil skirt with button details. The waist band is lined. I left the skirt bit unlined to avoid bulkiness.

please ignore the bad colour combination (pink top) I just wanted to quickly take a picture as backup for the swap.

this is a top I made out of stretch jersey. I threaded a gingham ribbon through the tunnel.

this is a pencil skirt dress I made. I made the pattern for the skirt myself (same one as the red one above) and just added it to the bodice to create this pin up inspired number.

I have a few more things to post but I just realised they are not uploaded yet so I'll post them later.

Thanks for looking.
Let me know what you think.

45  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / some more dresses skirts and other bits PIC HEAVY!!! on: April 14, 2009 11:58:17 PM
I already posted three dresses yesterday that I had made over Easter. Uploading my pictures to photobucket took so long that could not be asked to wait that long to post the other ones. So here are two more dresses I made over the past weekend with the other ones already posted and a few older things that I photographed as well while I was at it.

Hope you like....

This one is made out of gingham and I can actually need some help with it. I find it a bit plain but I didn't know what to add to it to make it a bit more fun and wearable. The pattern I used is Butterick 4386. Again very easy and it gives you loads of options (none of which I particular like for the gingham version I made).

This is another one I have just finished and probably my favourite out of all of them I particularly like the flower I made up from my leftover scraps.

And the last Easter piece. I definitely sewed the life out of that pattern. I added a few beads and bows to the neckline.

And now some older projects
I posted this skirt before in black corduroy. This is my "Hello Sailor" summer version in cotton. The buttons are vintage. One of my proud charity shop finds. The pattern is the KASIA from Burdastyle.

A little set in houndstooth. I didn't use a pattern for this. I made the jacked in a burgundy colour again and added a flower.

The last one is a little bolero type number. Ignore my face. The picture before was a lot worse.

That's it. Let me know what you think.

46  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / when a painter, a photographer and I get together......LOTS OF PICTURES!!! on: April 14, 2009 12:50:08 PM
.......I end up covered in paint.

My friend Victor Garcia talked me into being part of an art project about 2 years ago. He and a photographer friend Juan Zamalea (please check them out, they are both amazing: www.victorgarcia.de and www.juanzamalea.de both based in Germany) cooporated in this project.
I love how the pictured turned out.

I hope you enjoy them. We were all very proud of our work.
47  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / sewing crazy easter weekend on: April 14, 2009 11:58:36 AM
I spend some of the Easter holidays sewing away. The result...a bunch of little dresses. The summer can come now. I am prepared.  Grin
This one is made from embroidered cotton. The pattern is a sweet little floral design.

this one is made from some sort of polyester fabric I guess. I added straps. The pattern is a shamrock print.

last one is blue cotton with a red polka dot trim and a halter.

C&C are much appreciated
48  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / blanket and cussions on: April 11, 2009 02:57:07 PM
Last summer I had quiet a bit of free time on my own after moving house with my fiance. He didn't follow until a month after I moved in. So I spend most of my time being crafty and crochet a blanket and some cussion covers for the sofa.

Thanks for looking.
49  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / first post of some of my sewing projects on: April 11, 2009 02:51:43 PM
I have decided to start posting some of my projects. I have admired all the beautiful things posted and decided to show a few of my creations.

The first item is a skirt I made from a pattern on burdastyle. http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3633

This one is just a simple skirt I made from my own pattern. I added some lace trim and a belt

A bikini that I will hopefully use loads this summer (lets hope for a nice summer)

and the wallet I am currently using.

Thanks for looking
c&c are very welcome
