1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Sculpture Dress - Image heavy on: June 25, 2010 12:50:46 PM
I really like the skirt and the lace (I don't know what's with me and wanting skirts with lace lately  Grin)

The end result is very nice, but I like it better in the second picture, when it's half white.

Great job! ^_^

That's a cute little black dress Smiley

So beautiful! (the dress too!  Wink )

I like the clean-lines-with-a-twist pattern. It makes it look rich and comfortable, yet elegant.  Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jeans Skirt! on: June 02, 2010 10:16:09 PM
I kept few pairs of jeans (DH gained few pounds...), and finally got around to make a skirt from them! (DH was a bit shocked, and somewhat disturbed, seeing that I cut up his jeans, but he liked the skirt nonetheless).
I cut 1 leg off each of 2 pairs, and 2 legs off of another one, added a new (cheap) lace, and the top part is a stretchy tank. The tank spared me the problem of fitting a skirt made of thick jeans. I also want to be able to use it after I lose few more pounds.
(The 'Front' picture makes it look like it's sitting in a strange way on my body, but it's actually OK)

I like it very much! Good job!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 2 T-shirts into 1 Maternity/Nursing Hospital/Night Gown on: January 05, 2010 05:54:46 PM
For a long time I wanted to make a night gown that would work for me. Long, with a good nursing access, big enough for pregnancy (and after pregnancy) weight and shape, and to be able to wash it a lot (with nursing comes spitting...) without it looking like a washcloth or at least have it cheap enough that I won't care much for it becoming like a washcloth after few months, and still look decent.
My first problem was the nursing access. I kept thinking about making a horizontal one, which is challenging when using a T-shirt. However, after seeing this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=103577.0, I realized I could make a vertical opening and it should hold its shape fine. (Thanks Jesse!)

I made the one below from 2 XXXL T-shirts from the dollar store, so it totaled $2.12. I made the upper part by tracing a loose shirt of mine on one T-shirt, and sewed along the lines. I cut the bottom to make an empire waist (not too high because it's a nursing gown). I cut a slit and attached a panel made from leftovers of the other shirt. It's attached at the top and the middle bottom only. The middle part is gathered at the back. I did pin the parts before sewing. I pinned the part in the back for the gathering.
I meant to add some fabric to the sleeve to make it longer, but it's OK as is. It's not a good picture, I didn't notice I was stretching it while holding it, but you get the idea.
9  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: how do you make mushrooms appetizing? on: December 01, 2009 08:08:47 PM
Try different types of mushrooms. I don't like the white ones.
Fry some mushrooms with diced spanish onion on low-medium heat, in a little bit of oil, until nicely caramelized. Put in the blender with a hard boiled egg, some salt and pepper, and maybe garlic. It makes for a nice spread.
(I'm sorry, I don't have an exact recipe.)

It looks so yummy!
I've never tried steamed buns before, but with this looking so good, I'll have to try Smiley
