Ok, so i'm guessing like most craftster i have soooo much scrap fabric waiting to be turned into something, but while its waiting, what do you store yours in?? currently mine is sat in colour coded bin liners under my bed, but i was wondering if anyone had any ideas of other ways?  x x
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ball / Prom Dress :) on: May 10, 2007 06:08:53 AM
Ok, so along with a bazillion other coursework i decided to make my ball dress, i used Butterick 6463, and wanted to add some detail, but realised that if i added anything else it wouldn't look right. so this is how it turned out. the lining on the inside is a slightly lighter pink.

This random woman came up to me and asked me where i got it because she loved it Cheesy that made my night.

However, after an extremely drunken ball the slit is now 7inchs higher  Shocked Shocked yes indeed, therefore i have to repair it before i wear it again Sad
Let me know what you think?! x x x

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A.S Level Jacket on: April 06, 2007 07:21:47 AM
So, for my first year of a-level our coursework was to design and create an item ifluenced by fashion in the 20th century. i chose the 1970s, hence the big collar and big sleeves.... the lining is the hot pink you can see in the inside of the collar and sleeves and the buttons are made from the same material, as is the piping around the sleeves.
Pictureeeeeeeeees Smiley

Overall last year i got a D Sad but oh well, life goes on!! x x x x

So i brought a long sleeved top to reconstruct, black and boring, but i turned it into a top like an old one i used to have *that i grew to big for ...sob... * i then stencilled the words and the picture on, which was a mission, as this is the first stencil picture i've ever done!!! I used a mix of acrylic paint and fabric medium....

Ok, so it was going to be a dress *except i took the pattern from a stretch dress - and silly me didnt allow for that ;p* then it was going to be a pinafore * ala https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107286.0, however on me it made me look like a sack of potatoes* so we opted for a high waisted skirt instead - >
