3  Rockstar Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by epilepticlemur on: April 01, 2007 05:32:16 PM
I made this dress for a Rockstar themed costume party.  The bodice is so shiny, it shows reflections. 

My hair is blowing in the wind, it's not really this messy. 

At the party, with "Marilyn Manson"  I really love the different effects that lighting makes on this dress. 

edit 5-27-07:  The fabric style is Liquid Gold.  The color is of course silver.

4  Mccall 5177 badly drafted sleeves in Sewing Pattern Reviews by epilepticlemur on: November 01, 2006 02:32:11 PM
I made view c which is not quite as long as it looks, my model refuses to stay heightened.  
The instructions on this dress are very easy to follow, and the end result is beautiful.

I used wonder tape to apply the trim before sewing on, best stuff ever.  It made things a lot faster and easier.  I have never had my trim come out so nicely aligned either.  

However, there is one major problem.  This dress was drafted for zombies.

This is as far as I can lift my arm.  

I have not determined how I'm going to fix this problem yet.  If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

5  Ironing Spraypaint in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by epilepticlemur on: August 07, 2006 12:34:16 PM
Can anyone tell me how bad it is to iron something that's been spray painted?
I have a piece of muslin that I spray painted years ago, and I was thinking of using it to make part of a bag, (unless I can think of something better.  The whole piece measures 12'' x 48'')  but I need to get rid of the creases first.

I spray painted over leaves if anyone is curious.

7  Re: Record bowls, easiest gift ever! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by epilepticlemur on: October 06, 2005 04:30:46 PM
My first record bowl...woo!  I used the boiling water and hand form method.  I printed my own lable for it.  It's a jitterbug, a logo from where I go swing dancing. 

I can see how these would get addictive, and I have the ultimate source for free records...the dumpster behind this record store.  Most of them are unknown and no one would ever want to listen to or else badly scratched.  I wouldn't want to hurt any good records.

8  Romanish dress and icecream skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by epilepticlemur on: September 28, 2005 01:04:07 PM
I designed both of these myself, and actually didn't have this dress form when I made either of these. I just got it in the mail a couple days ago!

This was a dress I made from some huge scraps left after making a big cape for the Renn faire one year.  I just sewed pieces together, cut it apart on seam lines, gathered and draped places that fit funny, and resewed it together again.  It was kind of toga inspired,

I love icecream.

Well I sewed the top together on Thursday.  I'm not doing piping on this one, because it was mostly meant as a practice to see if I liked the style enough to use for some other fabric I have.  I sewed the zipper into the back of the top, so I could see how it would fit before I sew the skirt on.   I haven't gone further because I'm debating on what adjustments to make, since I don't want to wear it somewhere and find myself continually "adjusting" the front so that I don't accidentaly flash someone.  It doesn't seem as though a  bra will be possible with this dress.   Undecided which I had figured, but it does make things more complicated.

I need to learn how to starch things.  The tulle part of  my underskirt is not stiff anymore, because it had been through the wash.  It now hangs like just any other piece of fabric, so the poof factor in these pictures is extremely minimal, but better then nothing.  I'm planning on making a bigger underskirt sometime.  (This one wasn't very big to begin with, but pretty good for getting at some church's second hand sale.)

I still haven't gone to get  my belt kit yet.   Roll Eyes
