1  Leather Corset Outfit - Pirate Queen! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by DiVina//DeNuevo on: October 26, 2012 02:11:22 PM
Ok, I really shouldn't be posting this because I made it for a fashion show that's happening next month, and the whole point of the fashion show is to reveal new pieces.. but, I'm super proud of how it came out, and.. well, I figure none of you guys are going to be at the show anyway Smiley

Since we work with leather (mainly bags and accessories) this was a new thing for me. We're partnered up with a swimwear line called "Jolly Roger" so we agreed to go with a pirate theme. I have two girls walking the runway, and this is the final outfit, for my 'pirate queen' as it were..

Anyway - here you go!

The feathers are detachable, with a snap on either side. For, you know, when she's going to battle or something.

Before you say anything, the corset is deliberately asymmetrical. So the point under the bust is meant to not be centered. Though I don't think people will realize that and they'll probably just think I can't measure - lol.

The belt is actuall attached to the corset, starts at the front and works its way all the way around.

And finally, the back

So.. what do you think!?

2  Refillable Leather Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DiVina//DeNuevo on: October 02, 2012 04:20:11 PM
I've been off Craftster too long, so I'm back. Our leather journals which we started making last fall, have become pretty popular so I wanted to show them off.

3  Leather Camera Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by DiVina//DeNuevo on: October 02, 2012 12:25:51 PM
It's been too long, craftsters!

Here's one of our newest designs - it's our Kirkaldy Camera Bag. It's been a definite attention grabber, but we need to make it abit bigger, I think, so that people can fit their laptop etc in there. Right now it's just not tall/wide enough.

What do you guys think?

4  Leather cuffs and keychains! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by DiVina//DeNuevo on: June 17, 2011 02:50:53 PM
Ok, not sure if this is 'jewelry' or not, but I honestly have no idea where else to stick it! So I was making leather bags when I realised I had a ton of scrap leather that I didn't want to waste - tada, cuffs and keychains! They've actually become my most popular item at craft fairs, though I think that's the price tag more than anything, but anyway, voila:

Aren't these guys so adorable? I have them on all my key chains, and a customer told me that she was using it as a purse zipper pull!

5  Leather Laptop Bags! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by DiVina//DeNuevo on: May 02, 2011 10:58:07 PM
Alright lovely peoples, Finally finished photographing my latest two laptop bags, the barcelona and the madrid. The barcelona I made originally was with a luscious reddish brown like the Madrid bag, but I sold it before I got a chance to take pictures so this is the second take. I've also made it in a really lovely dark chocolate brown.

The strap is my pride and joy - it's designed to split and be worn across both shoulders to distribute the weight for long journeys (because seriously, laptops weigh a ton!), and then put together if you want to wear it across just one shoulder.

The Madrid bag has a detatchable compartment designed for the power supply - you can put your cables in the external pouch or use the bag solo.

Barcelona Laptop Bag

Body harness strap for weight distribution

Strap connected for shorter journeys

The leather had the letters "JU" marked on it - I thought they were neat!

Madrid Laptop Bag

The two compartments (the main one for the laptop and the external removable one for the power supply) both close with antique skeleton keys.

The two pouches side by side.

The madrid bag's strap, while less complex, is also designed for weight distribution. The split strap means that it contours the shoulder so that one piece sits on the higher part of the shoulder and the other piece on the lower part, distributing the weight evenly.

Hope you all like!

6  Leather Clutches with Skeleton Keys! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by DiVina//DeNuevo on: April 27, 2011 04:09:02 PM
Gosh it's been ages since I posted anything! I started heading down the road of leather (and now I have a ton of fabric collecting dust) and haven't looked back. I've become quite addicted to making these clutches and using old antique hardware and keys as embellishments..

without further ado..

I've also made a bunch of cuffs with the scraps

9  Dress Attempt #3, and finally I'm happy! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by DiVina//DeNuevo on: June 15, 2009 10:07:12 PM
Ok, not sure if you remember me, but I'm the girl who brought you such classics as the lopsided azalea dress, and the see-through (sh*t, the world is looking at my nipples!) dress. Finally, my 3rd dress and I'm kinda happy. I call her Betsey.

I made this dress using an upcycled bustier and building from it. I love how it turned out. I used a great polkadot netting/tulle type fabric. The dress is fully lined, with an invisible zip at the side and a very low back for a sexy line. The sweetheart bust is thanks to the bustier, and there is rouching down the center to pronounce the bust line. The skirt of the dress is A-line, with three layers of fabric and gathers for a fuller skirt.

All in all, this was my first dress like this, and the 3rd dress I've made in total.. this is the only one I've liked so far. I used no pattern, just.. started sewing away..

I'm wearing it to a gala tomorrow.

It took about 5 hours to make, give or take.

comments welcome!

10  2nd dress, no pattern, and lots of oopsies! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by DiVina//DeNuevo on: June 03, 2009 12:33:52 PM
So I got cocky. I made the azalea dress and hated using a pattern, so I figured I'd just use my imagination and start sewing. The white jersey that I used for the top is a bit too see through for me to wear out.. it's a bra-less dress, and I don't really want the world looking at my nipples! The front of the dress I'm happy with- though I wanted it to be more floaty, so I cut two slits in the sides with the intent of adding 2 triangle panels. Well, that didn't happen, so the slits got finished off and look silly. The back is the monstrosity though. Because I didn't have a zipper, I wanted to be able to slip in.. which means that it's everso bulky when you actually tie it round your empire line because it needed to have enough space to fit over my big ass.

Anyways.. here you have it.. mistakes and all!
