1  Latest Sewing Projects **IMG HEAVY** in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by babyphunk on: October 20, 2012 11:50:20 PM
I have been busy sewing, and decided to take pix of all my new sewing projects Smiley To start off:

1. Stretchy Knit dress with gathering at front - very flattering, and easy to make. I enjoy wearing it out, and can easily wear a belt with it for an extra oooophhh of something good!

2. Dip Dye Skirt - this was lots of fun to make. I had this awesome black and white fabric like beetle juice, and dip dyed it in black (but only dyed to grey I dunnooo), and added an elastic waistband.

3. Another fun elastic waist skirt, this one is in a black and white print. I lined it with a white fabric under it as it was semi sheer. If you view my other posts you'll see a black version of it, plaid version and tulle version.

4. Speaking of versions - the plaid version. What I love most with elastic waist skirts is, if you happen to eat, or eat too much super comfortable. No waistband skirt digging into my gut!!

5. Wrap dress in recycled fabrics and ribbon

6. Draped black skirt with two layers of fabric

7. Polka Dot Skirt with tulle - a stretchy knit fabric with draped tulle on it, loved making this one

8. 2 layer maxi skirt, with a mini skirt under it and a long sheer black skirt (no peekaboos)

2  Skirt time!!! **IMG HEAVY** in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by babyphunk on: October 20, 2012 11:43:07 PM
So apparently I have a skirt addiction problem, and have ended up with too many skirts. I thought I'd add them in here for you to view, and may be good ideas to update your wardrobe. It's now Summer in Australia, but these skirts can be worn with or without leggings, and look great with either heels or boots! Shocked

Bandage Skirt - strips of cotton/elastane sewn in panels, and with an invisible side zipper. Lots of fun, I chose Black but you can alternate colours.

Tulle Skirt - Black wide elastic waist band with layers of black polka dot tulle on a black cotton underlay. Lots of fun, a real party skirt.

Floral Pleated Skirt - A skirt that has pleats on the front and pack, a fitted waistband, and zipper at back. I added some embroidery detailing on the hemline.

Patchwork Cotton Skirt - I had two lovely vintage fabrics that had florals on it but not enough of either to make anything out of, so decided to cut them into panels and add an elastic waistband.

Fitted Skirt - This is lovely, I purchased the fabric from Lincraft and knew I had to have a skirt, and jacket, and potentially a dress! I made this fitted skirt, added darts in front and back, and a zipper at the back. I did not do a good job with the waistband under the skirt and will need to refit the waistband.

3  Polka Dot One piece - first swimwear piece! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by babyphunk on: October 18, 2012 05:23:44 AM
So I'm going overseas next month to Bali, and decided to make myself a one piece swimwear. Although this one may be alittle more conservative with a pair of jeans I love the retro vintage feel!

I had some poka dot 1 way stretch fabric (not super stretchy, but with some stretch) and some left over black mesh fabric with little black mesh dots.

I had a pattern I found on Burda Style, theres a free one for a t-shirt dress, and used the top halves of the patterns and traced a pair of knickers for the bottom.

My first fit was bad, I did not allow enough room to go over the bum and around the crutch. Not only did I have camel toe, but it turned into a massive g-string that even I had trouble pulling out - not pretty at all.

This was easily fixed by inserting another piece of fabric and rejoining the crutch area.
