You totally don't post too much. It's inspiring. Smiley

also, I really like the work and thought put in to the design of fitting. the back waist gathers were a brilliant way of making that skirt shape look awesome in the front, without adding a lot of bulk. Do you ever use circular ruffling?

I have no idea why this has no comments, but I absolutely adore it. really well done! The blue ruffle just adds a little something extra, and the stitching for the boning is something I love about working with t-shirts. It just appears so clean yet comfy.

I've seen your other work as well, I really like your aesthetic. I feel like we would have fun revamping old band shirts together. Smiley

this is fantastic! you did a really swell job of sewing something bias to something that looks like a simple straight weave. i love that green, looks super comfy!

YESSSSS! i love these, i also make myself a rediculous amount of skirts... one of my favorite things to use is old sheets... you can find so many awesome prints as well as weaves of fabric. I found this one amazing portuguese cotton set with striping, like this:
and used it to practice bias sewing, and made myself a jumper and skirt, both on the bias. it was so rad, i feel like i leveled up.

I'm curious, are those a 4 panel a-line? they look wonderful on you.

did you use a serger or sewing machine? often times on a serger, you can change the differential to accommodate a knit, and prevent puckering like that. it might be worth your time to either: needle felt the edges together and then remove the stitching, or change the tension and needle and stitch length on your sewing machine using a scrap of the sweater, and then re-sew the seams.

these two peices are of the few that i did this semester that are worth showing y'all.

jungian archetype, water soluble oils, 3x4 feet

and here is le narrative, acrylic, 3x4 feet

i feel really good about these. the polar bear just came along so smoothly, under pressure. almost a fluke, but really, i always work best under pressure.
y'all like?

my good friend monica is having a baby two weeks(ish) from now while i am in europe, and im pretty bummed about it, since i was going to help out at her home birth. so i made her Peanut a couple of squishies to keep em company till im back.

these are the same style i used to make with me mam back when i was a kid. i could never get over the simplistic cuteness of 2d squishies.

i made an elephant and a lil daruma kitty to stand guard.

lookit! he has a tail! Cheesy

the daruma is re-purposed t-shirts, and the elephant is an old turkish cotton sheet with watermark-style jacquard striping. (im making a bias cut dress out of the rest of the sheets, so in <3). next time around for the daruma, i think i will put beans or rice in his butt so he can stand up better.

at any rate, im pretty stoked, and monica got all teary eyed with glee and asked if she really *had* to give them to peanut. mission accomplished/qua'pla!

this is epically amazing. like, whoa. hell yea for all your work put into making the pattern for this! i know for a fact that you could market the pattern, hella people would wanna make one!

if you dont want to deal with the curling on the edges, just hand stitch it to a piece of flannel, and knot it down like finishing a quilt. itll also make it so you dont have to weave in all those ends! Grin

omg, you are so awesome.
