1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Zombie Sailor Pin-Up 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  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Sailor Zombie Pin-Up Girl...That's alot in one costume, haha 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
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A Bit of Betty, A Bit of Joan Dress 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
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / My favorite Decade Swap? on: July 04, 2010 06:45:12 AM
I was wondering if anyone would want to do a swap based on decades. You could possibly make things that relate and or find/alter things from a thrift/antique store. It could be any decade and you could be really creative with this one  Grin
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / 1870s Ball Gown 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  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Plus Size Lingerie 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

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pin-Up Girl Swap? on: December 01, 2009 01:39:48 PM
I was browsing the older swaps and came across a "Dress Me up like a Pin-Up" Swap. I thought that was pretty neat. Would anyone else be interested in doing another one or even just a Pin-Up themed swap? Smiley
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Lingerie for a curvy girl? on: October 23, 2009 07:43:07 PM
Hello all! Smiley
 I have a question. I recently had a friend ask me to make a lingerie set for her (I sew and she doesn't), but I'm having trouble finding patterns that fit her larger size. She's a beautiful girl and I want to make her something to show off her body. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions for patterns, ideas, etc? Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Jo's New Outfits (Zebra Skirt and Cover-up) 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

I know this kind of swap has been done before, but you can never have too much of these movies.
Someone else would have to organize it, though, because I'm new to swaps Smiley
