Thanks for the nice words, y'all are always so sweet here.  Cheesy

Here's a closeup of the fabric, though it doesn't show nearly all the pictures on the print!

2  Tattoo Print Dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by super deluxe on: January 08, 2006 12:50:44 PM
I got McCall 4868 this summer but never got around to making it, so I took a few days over winter break and threw it together with some Alexander Henry tatoo fabric that I am SO in love with.  I did view C, and it wasn't too hard, but I knew part way through that it was going to be a bit small, and had to adjust some seams accordingly.

Also, the halter was a little too wide-set so it kinda gapped at the neck line.  That was annoying, so I just made the straps straight in back instead.  I still haven't made up my mind yet about them though, so I just pinned them in and wore it anyway! 

The red is more of a maroon-cranberry color, it comes off a bit harsh but that's because I am not good at taking pictures of myself in a dorm room.  Tongue

Anyone considering this pattern should definitely go for it, the entire bodice is self-lined, so it's nice and sturdy- I was really pleased with the final result.

3  Silk Painted Scarves in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by super deluxe on: February 19, 2005 11:44:33 AM
I did these in a series a while back; they're about 5' long.  First I either pre-dyed the silk or washed it, then I put on a resist, then painted, then removed the resist, then steamed them, then had them dry-cleaned to set the dye.  I gave them to my mom as a present. 

Anybody else done these?

EDIT:  Here's a link to see them bigger:

I reconstructed my prom dress from one I got at Ross on clearance for $12.  I cut it down because it was much too big, added a bra liner, and because it was backless, added corset lacing up the back.  Super cheap, fast, and easy.  I went to the senior dinner before hand, then went to a scuzzy club to see my friend's band play, and then went glow bowling with the band afterward.  Never did make it to the prom....

5  Boring Skirt Gets Tulle Makeover in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by super deluxe on: January 06, 2005 09:59:03 PM
I'll admit to having read posts for a while here before posting one of my own- you guys have some REALLY killer ideas.

This was my first reconstruction, I did it about two years ago.  Started with a full length *boooooring* black skirt for $2 from a thrift store, then cut it to length and hemmed it.  I added 3 yards of bright red tulle underneath, and voila!  It's quite a bit fuller than it looks in the picture (sorry I don't have it in color).  No, I don't usually look quite that dopey in real life.
