21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: A shirt from well... a shirt on: February 01, 2008 05:42:57 PM
Looks really good! I feel like button up reconstructions have so much potential and it's fun to see all the ways that people discover of making them new/better. I haven't seen anything like this before, and it's totally inspiring me. Thanks!

Ahh, simple reconstructing at it's very best. The pin is gorgeous and it does improve it so much. (If only more projects were content with a pinch-n-pin resize and pin!) Thank you for sharing!

Here here, with the state of available fashion today! Everyday I'm thankful that I know how to make clothes (can I get an amen?) so that I'm not limited to what's trendy and at stores.

This whole project is awesome. It looks great now, and the preview "finished" shot looks SO SO GOOD. Plus, an unfinished sewing project done by your mom in the 80's? That outfit's going to have an amazing story when you finally take it out for a spin!

Do keep us posted and good luck with the move.

PS- "old fashioned shaped" LAWLS, I'm totally going to use that from now on. I'm too much of a tomboy to refer to myself as "hourglass shaped" without making a face. tee hee!

Congrats on your first serger conquest! It's an exciting landmark as a crafty-type person, huh?

The shirt looks great! As for finishing touch, I keep looking at the neckline. Give it some shape? Maybe some complimenting or contrasting color from a trim or an applique?

What utter cuteness. Your kitties may not be overjoyed with their new sweaters, but at least they look flipping adorable!
Seriously, wonderful job!

Wow to;

a) The gun! Great job changing something boring into something AWESOME. What fantastical evil does it shoot upon its victims?

b) The party! What a kick ass theme. I can has your friends?

Oh, very cute! Any craft that involves lollipops is aces.

Those are gorgeous, I can't wait to see the tutorial. I saw similar jars and bottles at Michael's, but they were so cheesy and the labels looked as if they'd fall off just by looking at them. Yours are infinitely cooler.
29  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Halloween Aprons! on: September 20, 2007 04:46:25 PM
dang those are cute! they're solving a conundrum for me, too. every year i ogle costumes with aprons or pinafores, but never wear one for a variety reasons. an apron made with Halloween-y fabric would probably satiate my apron lust whilst allowing for an apron-free costume. *rubs chin thoughtfully* yes...

anyway i hope you wear those outside of the kitchen because you'd definitely inspire some Halloween spirit  Cheesy
30  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Halloween Skirts (new skirt + new pics) on: September 20, 2007 02:46:56 PM
How many times have you said to yourself "I really want a cute (fill in the blank) but I can't find one anywhere!". I've wanted a unique Halloween skirt for like, ever, and since no stores in the world (save for Etsy!) have any awesome ones, I just made my own:

UPDATE: Here's the newest skirt I made this year. I finished it on Halloween and wore it out when I visited the haunted Waley House in Old Town San Diego on the big night.

Simplicity 5005 was a good pattern choice, but all those curves were kind of a bear. They can never be too smooth for me, so the few tiny puckers drive me nuts. You have to look up close to see them, though.



This was the skirt I made a couple years ago. I used Simplicity 4705 which was a great pattern. It has a side zip, witch fabric with glow in the dark eyeballs, contrasting green stripe waistband fabric, 2 rows of grosgrain ribbon at the bottom AND some gathered black tulle. Oh how I love this skirt.

My sister and I are huge Halloweenies, so this past May we had "Mini Halloween". We dressed up, put on a little gore makeup, went to the candy store for treats, the grocery store for ingredients, and came home to make Stuffed Intestines and watch The Shining. Best Day Ever. I can't wait for Halloween!

A couple years before that, I made this skirt! This one I did on the fly, no pattern, and adding details as I went on. It was my first experience using interlock as a waistband, and it turned out pretty good. I love the teeny bows and sheer, glittery bat material that's underneath. 

PS- If any of you crafty peeps would like to see your creations featured on my Halloween website, please see this post. Thanks!

PPS- Yep, we got some strange looks that day, but also made a lot of people smile and congratulate us for doing something "so creative". Score.
