11  Re: rihanna's green dress in Designer Clothing Homage by shleybee on: September 16, 2006 03:12:06 PM
ok. so this is my theory as to how this dress is going to work out. the only thing i'm not sure of is if the bottom part is somehow one piece, or if it's 2 pieces the way it's shown here:

the front would be gather up to be sewn into the diamond, therefore the bottom would end up being straight, not diagonal.
would this work?
thanks to all who have replied!

12  rihanna's green dress EDIT: I MADE IT! in Designer Clothing Homage by shleybee on: September 10, 2006 10:38:13 AM
any idea how to make it? im pretty sure i know how to make the top, because i can see that it ties with a bow in the back, but as for the bottom, i really have no idea how to make it - i've searched everywhere and can't figure out how it would close. i'm guessing a zipper, but i'd like a second opinion. thanks!


MINE: i'm not too fond of it, and i don't think i'll wear it, but it was worth a try.

13  chiffon babydoll dress [3 pics] in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by shleybee on: August 21, 2006 05:26:26 PM
i had this green scarf/wrap thing laying around, and i'm not one to use wraps, much less kelly green ones, but my homecoming is coming up and i wanted to make a dress for it, but figured i should probably do a tester in case i messed up some super nice, expensive fabric hehe...so i used some black spandex type material laying around for the top and underskirt (is that what it's called?) and then the chiffon for the body of the dress...
the thing with this is that it was just a strip of fabric, so i sewed it up the back, therefore it's not really as twirly and flouncy. i think when i make my actual dress i'm going to use a circle for the body.
sorry, do i make sense at all? i tend to ramble. haha. anyway, for the pictures:

ok. i was obsessed with this dress. but then i thought hey, wouldn't a top be great too, to wear with jeans and such? soooo i substituted a waist band (that ties in the back) for the skirt, and ta-da!

Rostitchery, i still can't thank you ENOUGH for this amazing tutorial   Smiley
And Timaria and Bnanca, thanks so much for your comments!

i made one i made one i made one!!!!
thank you sooo much rostitchery for this amazing tutorial. i've never sewn a dress before in my LIFE and this was so easy and came out SO well.
i used black for the bottom part and blue for the top part however because i did not have enough black. the skirt waistband came out wayyyy to big so it sits at the waist, and i still have to take it in a bit more  Undecided butttt i think it came out pretty well anyway  Grin

**PS!! i know that i would NEVER wear this without a bra. however i recently bought these cup-like things that kind of just stick there. and then there's a clip in the middle so that they clip together. so there's no back, and theyre skin colored. they're really awesome  Smiley

16  padded laptop sleeves! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by shleybee on: August 24, 2005 09:32:44 AM

school's tomorrow, so i was set on figuring out the best way to make a laptop sleeve that would protect my laptop, yet still look adorable (because i am NOT going to spend 40 bucks on the laptop sleeves that i see everywhere else)
i experimented with alot of different ways to make it, but in the end i used this tutorial

i pretty much just cut the fabric to the dimensions of my laptop, leaving about 1/3 of an inch seems (which i later cut)
after turning the bag right side out, before sewing up the little hole that i turned the bag right side out through, i stuffed pillow stuffing into it, and kinda worked with the bag to get the pillow stuffing where i wanted it.

i am planning on stenciling something onto the right hand corner of this bag, or the right hand corner of the flap, but have yet to decide what, i'm thinking of either a cute little cartoon owl, a blue bird with a few flowers (orange to match the lining), or just a few stripes going every which a way...

i made a tester to make sure the dimensions would fit my laptop out of some hideous fabric haha, any ideas how to make it any less hideous so i would actually use it?

17  not exactly the greatest, but my completed stuff...VERY img heavy in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by shleybee on: July 27, 2005 08:38:28 PM
these are just watercolors, theyre actually framed, but i cropped them cause they really would take much too long to load...and they were taken at an angle cause that was the only way i could get the lighting to be ok. ok, enough of my schpiel (or however you spell that, haha, here they are:)
