And since everyone else is doing it....here's a photo of my little lovely pup that my partner (so excited! Can't wait!) will be crafting for. He's the one on the left.

2  Pin-upy style sun dress in skulls and cotton! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by GigglingPagan on: July 17, 2010 07:58:25 PM

I made this dress as a debut to a local pinup/boudoir/old hollywood photographer's opening night exhibit for a project she did. The photographer in question took 84+ women of all ages, shapes sizes and colors and re-created iconic Marilyn Monroe photos. I participated, and wanted to look nice. I'm usually not one for fancy dresses (or heels!) but the occasion merited it.

So I thought I'd make something sort of pin-upy with my own sense of style still retained. The pattern is New Look 6457, view A. Instead of having two ribbon stripes at the bottom, I put one at the bottom and one at the waist - without the line at the waist to break it all up, the skull pattern was just too dang much.

I made the dress in the largest size the pattern made available - an arbitrary size 16. My measurements do not coincide with those given on the package - I'm a 42-36-48 gal. I didn't make alterations to the pattern as far as ease or size goes - but I do think I have an awful bad habit of messing up seam allowances. I had expected the skirt to be fuller, but I wasn't too disappointed with the dress. It does have a zipper - I didn't make a lapped or hidden zipper because I didn't really give a hoot.

The dress fits like a glove. The front kind of wrinkles/buckles, even with interfacing, because of how my weight is carried - I've got a rotund stomach with a small waist. Can you imagine why I started making my own clothing? Hahah.

Just wanted to show off. Any comments/thoughts/tips are always appreciated.

3  Father's Day Postcard in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by GigglingPagan on: June 08, 2009 04:39:40 PM
This is a postcard I made for father's day. The base is a piece of cereal box that I whip stitched a piece of old satin to, and then embroidered an angelfish onto. I covered the back with paper to write on (Sorry, no photos of that!) and covered the entire thing with clear packing tape to help it hold up in the mail.

Sorry for the lousy photos! The packing tape didn't do much to help with the photography!
