I love this! Someone inadvertently made an IT Crowd joke and I've been rewatching all the episodes, and then I get onto Craftster to see this! Roy is awesome, I wish there would be more series.
great job
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / V is for Vest-tastic-ish on: July 24, 2011 11:09:45 PM
So, about a week ago I was doing my usual craftster lurking and I came upon a wonderful tutorial by UrbanThreads (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386002.0) and I knew that I had found the gift I was looking for to make one of my best friends. So this is my take, which is actually pretty similar but hers rocks so what do you expect Smiley

 Of course I've never been taught to sew, and I never attempt to make the seams look at all nice so I got myself in over my head. But! I had so much fun I ended up making one for myself...of course...and learned a lot about dyeing and seaming!

I picked up 2 yards of very white solid knit, and this is what I came up with!

my fancy dancy piece (with pockets! because who doesn't need more pockets?)


the back with the v of lace, which I was so scared to sew but it doesn't look quite as puckery in real life...I hope Smiley


here is her vest after dyeing, which I was a little disappointed about because of the lack of color...

the color is pretty spot on here, not much to it but it's grown on me

I added pockets and lace to mine (which is supposed to be scarlet, but instead is a very coral orange) because of extra time and I am definitely adding a back of white lace to hers. I loved making these and I am definitely excited to try more clothing projects now.

thanks for looking!

This is wonderful! Thank you so much for posting this, I bought some violet dye and white knit fabric and am going to try this soon for my best friend's birthday. Although I'm terrible at sewing seams so I might need a back up gift Tongue

Is there an IT Crowd swap going on?

These are so kickass! I don't watch much BBT either but I saw a youtube video about the rock paper scissors bit and I laughed out loud when I saw you put it on the bottom. I love it!

Wow, the quality is stunning. I know a lot of girls who paid a leg and an arm for a dress similar to this for our school proms Tongue Too bad they didn't have your craftiness!
