4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to copy this draped ruffle front neckline? on: July 20, 2010 09:15:21 AM
The other day I was in Macy's admiring all their fancy (expensive) tops and of course, I came upon quite a few tops that I wanted for myself, and of course, I couldn't afford them. So I'm trying to recreate them for wayy less.

First up is this draped ruffle top
I also remember a dress that Hanna from Pretty Little Liars wore that I LOVE

So I think I'd like to make something in between but as a top, if only I knew how!
I may be wrong but I think the ruffles start out as circles or something, idk. PLEASE help out this clueless girl
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Decoupaged Notebook on: July 01, 2010 08:00:43 PM
I'm going to an enrichment program this summer. For one class my teacher wanted us to decorate the front side of our notebooks and at the end of the program we decorate the back to see how our ways of thinking has changed. This is what I came up with :

It's my first time doing this kind of thing, but I like it and I think I'll do it more.
I'd appreciate your C&Cs
Btw I would really like it if people sent me old magazines, preferably fashion Wink so if anybody is willing, please msg me.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Charlie Bag&Pouches! on: June 21, 2010 04:46:41 PM
So the reversible charlie bag variation posted up on burdastyle and a couple of pouches I sewed up Smiley

Now onto the pouches!

This was supposed to have a zip closure but it turned out too small for my machine to sew, even free arm.

This is a gathered clutch from noodlehead I saw one on here and really liked it so I gave it a try. I don't really like it as much as I would like to. I think I'll try it again with some funner fabrics.

the inside
Thanks for looking and hope you liked it Smiley I'd appreciate comments and advice
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Graduation Dress on: June 21, 2010 04:33:33 PM
For my 8th grade graduation I decided to give sewing my own dress a shot and here it is!

There's 4 layers of fabric, 3 layers of this sheer gingham fabric, it's between sky blue and silver and in certain light it looks really shiny Cheesy the lining is just some blue fabric. Blue lace for halter straps and sashy thing.
Here are some pics I took from home

Every time I take a pic the straps on this thing are always askew ><

Thanks for looking!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first couple of projects!(New Pics!) on: January 31, 2010 08:55:15 PM

My first completed project! 

closer up


The bow headband I made for my cousin(yellow) mines is navy.
Both of the headbands consists of chains, but after making mines I realized it'd be much easier adding a stretchy band on the band to make it easier to put on but still get the coolness of the chains.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with modifying a sock pattern? on: January 25, 2010 05:53:04 PM
  Alright, I finished my first scarf a couple weeks back (I'm still sewing it up, yay procrastination!I'll post "soon"). Now I'm just mentally preparing myself for some future knitting projects, that's just the who I am, super-analyzing nerd, yup yup. I've been terrified by socks, mainly because IT TURNS, but this is what prepping is for, at least for me. It took me forever to find a magic loop cuff down sock pattern, (geez why was it so hard?) but it has a smaller gauge than I want to knit, I can only buy so many different types of needles and yarns as a beginner(plus it'll take wayyyy too long to knit with that gauge)! About twice as large a gauge, or half the gauge? IDK whichever way it goes, I'm using a gauge of roughly 4sts/inch, the sock pattern has 7sts/inch.

So far, I've got the modifications going fine, up until the heel turn, I hardly understand why you're knitting it like that in the original pattern, how am I suppose to modify it!?
Original- CO 64 sts Change to 32 sts and do the ribbing blah de blah split into 16 when you want to do your heel flap.
Ok so you knit 16 rows of preferred heel flap stitchy whatchamacallits.(Eye of the partridge is what I'll be doing)
Now for the heel and then when I enter it into my brain for conversion this is what I get:
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '000101000101001011111010010101010101010100000000000000000000000000000000000000000101010110')

It's very sad, especially since as I'm typing I really should be doing my Algebra HW while watching One Tree Hill, but my brain can't "rest" or really do anything until it knows a solution is soon on it's way, so please help me out, here's the original instruc. for the turn:

Turn Heel as follows:

Row 1:  Sl 1, K17 sts, K2 tog, K1 turn

Row 2:  Sl 1, P5 sts, P2 tog, P1, turn

Row 3:  Sl 1, K6, K2 tog, K1, turn

Row 4:  Sl 1, P7, P2 tog, P1, turn

Repeat rows 3 and 4, increasing 1 additional K or P stitch after the Sl 1 until all side stitches are consumed.  End with a purl row

BTW Sorry for the rant, my brain is just SO sad right now T^T Just so we're clear, I know the action and all, I just don't 100% understand. I'm like a parrot, you can teach me how to say it but it doesn't mean I know what I'm saying. Explanation with conversion would be awesome for future reference. I will go be a good student and make my Algebra teacher proud now Cheesy but, yeah OTH Is almost over >3<

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Switching colors while making a border on: January 03, 2010 01:54:03 PM
Okay, so I haven't in the slightest clue know how to crochet, my mother is a constant crocheter though, but she isn't an expert or anything. I'm knitting a scarf in stockinette, which sadly, curls, and I want to crochet a border to keep it from rolling so much, but the ends are striped (blue, yellow, blue... on ends, but mainly yellow). So it'll look weird if i just choose one color over the other to border it, can i switch color along the way to match the scarf. Like do one color, end it when it comes to the next, and repeat until I'm done? Will it look odd? Or is there like some other alternative to this?
