41  Brand spanking new frocks... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: March 19, 2010 12:14:30 PM
After getting my butt into gear, I finally finished a good batch of dresses for my friend's shop. Only took me MONTHS to actually get around to doing it...Tongue When the day finally came for me to get them in the shop, I was running around like a chicken with it's head cut off and manage to forget one of them!! DUH.

Here are two of the items that will be featured on the rails :

The cherry one was made out of material that I bought aaaaaages ago and never got around to doing anything with it!! The tattoo print one was made out of leftover material that I had from making a dress for a friend of mine. So hopefully, they'll sell and go to a loving home. Smiley But I am mainly proud at the fact that the collars came out even! YAY!! Now I can have a pizza... Smiley

42  Scrummy Tattoo Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: March 15, 2010 10:44:27 AM
I love my friends. Once they've found out I make dresses, they've been making a beeline for me to make them stuff!  Wink But one of my dear, dear friends who is a d.j. at a club my boyfriend and I frequent asked me to make her a few dresses yesterday out of a bunch of Alexander Henry fabric she had lying around - and I can keep whatever's leftover! WHOO! I made this today whilst watching copious amounts of shyte daytime telly, but am proud of it because -

1. The zipper is actually hidden. I hate stitching in zips. A massive achievement.
2. I did my first interfacing on the collar. Go me.
3. The pintucks on the front and back are ALL level.
I can happily say I am well proud of myself. The picture doesn't really do it justice - my bodyform is rubbish and doesn't like modelling clothes anymore. (but shall be getting a brand new one tomorrow.)

Now I have about three more of the same style to make. Should be all right. I just hope it fits her. Shocked

43  All In A Good Cause... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: March 07, 2010 02:05:01 AM
I promised to make a dress for a friend who was sooooo kind as to send me some mole verde sauce from New Mexico. I grew up with the stuff *my mom made awesome food* and I totally miss tacos and taquitos! Smiley So, as a thank you, I made this for her:

The top is made out of cotton and bottom is made out of cotton stretch poplin. Pretty cool because the skirt is WELL flowy when you twirl in it! *Not that I did that when I tried it on.. Roll Eyes* And I added the skull and crossbones patch after thinking the dress needed a bit more pizzazz. I love the fact that it's so striking with the colour combo, but yet so simple in design. My only problem is actually letting it go. Wink

44  Gnome World Tour!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: February 25, 2010 07:15:21 AM
I needed a dress for my aunt and uncle's ruby anniversary party next month - I hate shopping for dresses because 9 times out of 10 they don't fit right. BLAH. So thought might as well make me a frock for the occassion! And I came up with this thing - it was supposed to be a sundress with straps, but I decided against it and chopped it off at the armpit. Smiley Personally, I like very simple dresses that don't require a lot of attention to detail. Just throw it together and away I go - took me about a few hours to make it. Smiley But I do intend to fluff it up with a petticoat and wear a cardigan over it.

Before you ask, it's Michael Miller fabric that I bought from www.hartsfabric.com. Oh my, I love that website - so much funky fabrics, it's unreal! Here's a close up of the fabric. Lookit the happy gnome chillin' 'round the world. He's like a pint-size Phileas Fogg!
FINALLY got a pic of what it looks like on. I'm surprised it fits the way it does - I guessed the measurements! Got a whole lot of boobage going on - boyfriend'll like that. So it's a dress for everybody's enjoyment! Wink

45  Zombies and Bowie. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: February 23, 2010 12:38:25 PM
Yup, you heard right. Imagine, though...a zombie Bowie?!  Shocked Anyhoos...

I was cooking din-dins for my lovely boyfriend and I this evening when I realised that I had a box of old shirts I can create with whilst our veggie roast was...roasting. So, whilst watching a couple episodes of My Wife & Kids, I put these two tops together from some shirts that needed some TLC. I cut the front 'patches' from shirts that didn't fit or had some wine spillage on it. *Don't ask me how THAT happened... Roll Eyes*

I love the green zombie vest - that's my fave. Smiley

46  Muslin cloth can be turned into a dress - who knew?! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: February 10, 2010 02:30:37 AM
I was commissioned by a lovely woman in Canada to make her a dress for her wedding reception in March, as I was very happy to do it! However, the dress she was after was that blue one Zooey Deschanel wore on '500 days Of Summer' - you know, the one every girl seems to be after nowadays! Luckily, the woman was very cool about changing a few things - skirt, colour, the fabric...

....which prompted me to find fabric that would be lightweight, easy to work with *chiffon is my enemy*, and yet be a bit feminine for a dress. Did my research and found out that muslin fabric is perfect for such situations. Cheesy JOY! So after about a month, god knows how many hours, many meters of muslin fabric later, I created this:

I am proud of it, really. I've never used muslin before for a dress, so I'm a bit chuffed on how it came out. I would've put it on a bodyform, but the measurements are so little, I wouldn't be able to fit the bugger on it! :| I just hope she likes it. Smiley

47  Bringing back the nerdtastic pinafores....werd. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: February 04, 2010 02:15:41 PM
It was my first ever attempt at pinafores with this beast, but I have to say...I am quite happy at the turn out! I'm a sucker for high-waisted things *skirts, jeans...* Polka dots are always in style, so I thought 'Why the heck not?!' The straps were killer to do - it was so stressy to make sure one wasn't shorter than the other! :S

Believe it or not, this was the by-product of a strapless dress that went horribly wrong. My sewing machine was going out of it's mind and decided the tear up a few stitches. ARF.

48  Little seester's prom dress.... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: January 14, 2010 04:47:17 AM
The youngest of the litter kindly asked me to make her a prom dress. I asked, 'Which one?' And she was all, 'THAT one!!' I had to drop the bomb that I couldn't find that fabric anywhere anymore! I'd give her this one, but it won't fit her. Sad Maybe if she holds her breath in for the whole evening, she'd be fine. Tongue

49  My pride and joy..... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TeenageRebelOfTheWeek on: January 09, 2010 10:25:38 AM
Finished this beast earlier this month - so happy! Took me about a couple of weeks, seeing that I am a bit of a perfectionist....but it's finally done! Whew!
