Beautiful! Smiley
I got the new "beaded bands" Klutz book for Christmas so have just learned to do the simple version of these. I love the way you've made the beads into the loop.

I do like the way you've got the clasps on them. I used to make these things but my kit is sadly neglected as I couldn't work out how to fasten them in a neat way!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the lovely comments!!! (especially from the stalkers  Tongue ).
The dress is fun. At the moment I really need to wear the outer part though. The under-dress started off as the prototype, so is made from an old sheet - I made two though and layered them together so technically it's reversible (but both sides are black) - and I didn't get around to working out how to change the thread on the machine until later so the stitching around the bust shows white. Maybe I should get a sharpie and colour it in... Smiley Smiley Smiley
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Not quite the Butterick 4790 dress... on: March 08, 2009 06:45:23 AM
(Apologies if you've seen this twice, I put this on sew_hip on Livejournal too but in a different order!)

I saw the Butterick 4790 on here and LJ, and fell in love with it. Despite not being a standard size (I'm 4'10"ish and scaled to fit) I bought the pattern anyway, thinking I could change the size a little. Hahaha... On the trial run using rubbish fabric the neckline started off my shoulders, the bust was too low and way too big, and the waist, also too large, started somewhere around my hips. And that was just the underneath bit. So I chucked the pattern to the other side of the room and had a think. This was last summer...

As this was my first pattern, I didn't fancy learning how to redraft it. Instead I found a shift dress I liked, and took the shape of that to make this, then chopped the back off and buttoned on some straps,

Then I made a separate outer part in the spiderweb mesh and added some buttons to the shoulder,

And added a pocket and some vintage mis-matched buttons,

And yay! a version that fits and also that can be two separate dresses!

Hope you like Smiley Smiley Smiley

How many years has this taken me?? I finally found fabric that felt right for the dress on a trip to the US (the conference was 5 minutes walk from Vogue Fabrics in Chicago, how ace!!) and found some $2.99 a yard stuff in their pirate sale. I cut the skirt waist a bit on the small side, put it on, and it was too big. Go fig. So I swopped the waist band for some wide elastic. My other-me (one of the duct-tape dummies, I made a cover) is modelling Smiley

I made the skirt as long as possible and went from demure to not so, and also hitched it up higher so it was shorter. The pattern on the straps helped in some ways and hindered in others!

They're really great Smiley

My friend has a similar problem, she's just too small for maternity stuff at the moment but too big around the belly for a lot of her clothes. I'd love to make her something like this but she's on the other side of the world to me, so it's too hard to get measurements Sad
