1  Zombie Sailor Pin-Up in Halloween Costumes by VintageGrace on: November 02, 2010 06:53:25 PM
This year I decided I wanted to be dead and sexy Wink The result was a combination of zombie and pinup girl.
I made my entire outfit, even drafted my own pattern for the bottoms. I glued sequins on my hat (which was bought) and on the outfit. My amazing friend did my bf and my make-up. My boyfriends outfit was goodwill bought, ripped up, and blood spattered, lol. We wanted to be a zombie couple  Grin

The last two photos I was playing around with in photoshop and just made our skin more gray or "undead" lookig.

Thanks for looking Smiley

2  Sailor Zombie Pin-Up Girl...That's alot in one costume, haha in Halloween Costumes by VintageGrace on: November 02, 2010 06:07:52 PM
This year I wanted to be dead for Halloween. But I also wanted to be a little bit sexy as well (or as much as I can try to be). And what is sexier than a pin-up? Nothing. Combining these three things was pretty easy.

I made the top without a pattern and the bottoms were from a self-drafted pattern I already had. I then ripped it up, covered myself in blood, and headed out the door with my man to a party  Grin

An amazing friend did the make-up for us. She's the best! Smiley

I photoshopped the last two to give a more grayish-undead look Wink

4  A Bit of Betty, A Bit of Joan Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by VintageGrace on: August 12, 2010 05:00:04 PM
Here is the dress that I drafted, mocked up, and sewed from start to finish. It started with an inspiration from Mad Men.

Here's the the drawing that started it:

On the form:

Finally in person. There are a few things I would change, but it was a learning experience:

This dress cost me around three dollars to make. I had all of the materials except the zipper. The fabric I received for free when I told an Antique store owner I was a fashion design major. I guess it's one of the perks Grin

5  1870s Ball Gown in Costumes: Completed Projects by VintageGrace on: March 08, 2010 03:57:51 PM
So, I made another dress for my school's second annual Victorian Ball. This year, it was the bustle period we were working on. I spent 3-4 weeks on the dress. It was tiring, took 2 zippers (I broke one), and almost 10 yds of fabric. I'm so glad it's over. The ball was great and I had a date this year. I made his vest out of left-over material from my skirt. He kept saying how he couldn't dance that well, but by the end we were waltzing, lol Smiley

Here's one of the professional photographs. As usual I look like I'm about to blink. Doesn't it look like a dorky prom picture? haha

This picture does him no justice. But it shows the buttons. They are vintage buttons from who knows when.

Thanks for looking Smiley

6  Plus Size Lingerie in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by VintageGrace on: December 27, 2009 08:52:23 AM
I made this for my best friend. She's a plus size, so I had a bit of a hard time finding a pattern, so I just winged it. I think it turned out really well. It was super easy too. Sorry about the dress form. It's my size not her's, but the negligee is adjustable, so it's okay, lol. I also made some pasties too, after seeing some tutorials on here Grin

Comments would be appreciated. Thanks for looking Wink

8  Jo's New Outfits (Zebra Skirt and Cover-up) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by VintageGrace on: July 20, 2009 10:50:35 AM
So, I found that I had a yard of zebra print fabric in my stash of fabric. I decided that I wanted to surprise my sister with a skirt. She's so tiny that when I was done with the skirt, I still had some fabric left over. The skirt was not made with a pattern, just loosely based on a skirt she already had. There is an elastic waist band because I was too lazy to put a zipper in. Here's how it turned out:

I also made her a white swimsuit cover-up up from a yard of white cotton and one of those pre-made tops.

Thanks for looking Smiley

9  Victorian Fashion Ball Gown in Costumes: Completed Projects by VintageGrace on: April 22, 2009 02:47:01 PM
I'm currently studying Fashion Design in college and in April my school had their first Victorian Fashion Ball. Many fashion majors made their dresses. Here is a picture of mine that was made using a simplicity pattern and an applique from an old prom dress.

Here are some pictures of the ball and the "real victorian" dancing, lol.
