1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / the dress that ought to be a skirt (first completed project) on: May 20, 2010 10:06:51 AM
I saw a couple of those high waisted skirts here on crafster and i thought it would be cool to have my own.. so i started sewind, without any patterns and without knowing what i'm doing..

guess what happend?Huh

i messed it up =) =)

But i found out that the "skirt" is long enough to become a dress (don't ask me how that happened).
i changed it a little an now it is a dress!

it turned out better than i expected and i think i'm going to wear it this summer...

here are some pics:

the front:

the back:

(this pic makes me look really really fat)

the mess and a almost close up of the fabric i used:

thanks for having a look

c&c is welcome

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / card for mothers day.. on: May 06, 2010 06:30:25 AM
hello crafsters..
i just started crafting a crad for my mom.. its mothersday very soon, so i thought it's about time..
i was inspired by a video i showed her..but i'm not happy with what i made...
here's what i got so far:

i only like you when you give me cookies....

dunno.. don't like my work..
any ideas for saving the crad or shoud i start again?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / felling a little helpless about the dress, tah ought to be a skirt.. on: April 13, 2010 11:07:08 AM
i got a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig problem..
i started making a skirt, a high waisted one, but found out that it's to big.
it's to long and wide and all..
so my mom and i decided to make a dress out oft it, it's still long enough an looks better.
The skirt of the dress fits, but the top of it (former waistband) is still to wide (11cm)
the prob is, that i need to tighten the top but leave the skirt the way it is..
And i don't know how...
does anyone has an idea?? you would save the dresses live Wink
