1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Crushed Velvet (W/ Tutorial Link!) on: June 11, 2013 05:58:07 PM
A funky little ensemble that I whipped up over the weekend. The cropped sweatshirt and panel skirt were both self drafted and only took a day to sew up. Knits are the best, nothing like blasting em away with the ole overlocker!

So what's the verdict? Does the outfit work, or is crushed velvet just too tacky to live? Tongue

I also drew up a tutorial on how to draft and sew the panel skirt yourself. Visit me at http://www.mollytov.com/panel-skirt-tutorial/ if youre interested!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Librarian Blouse (Tutorial Link) on: May 26, 2013 08:55:42 PM
I refashioned this sleeveless top from a frumpy over-sized blouse. It only took a few steps I just cut off the sleeves, took in the sides, and finished the armholes with a bias binding.

For anybody might be interested in learning how to finish armholes and necklines using the french bias binding method, I posted a full diy tutorial on my blog at http://www.mollytov.com/short-sleeve-blouse-refashion/


3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pastel Bomber Jacket on: May 18, 2013 08:44:18 PM
This is my happy jacket. I wear it when I eat ice cream and go rollerblading with my bffs. Theyre so cool. My friend Kristy thought of the best idea the other day. Were going to start a baby sitters club!!  Cheesy Cheesy

But seriously, this jacket is just a wonderfully cheesy 80s throwback that I made as part of a school assignment.

That looks so comfortable and breezy. I've been looking for dress patterns to try this summer that will be compatible with my body once I hit the third trimester, and this looks like it might be one of them. Thanks for the tutorial!

Congratulations!! and yeah, it'd make a perfect maternity dress!

Wow, thanks for the replies everybody. Makes me feel real warm and fuzzy inside!

Might I make one tiny suggestion for the tutorial? I was a little confused, thinking that the darker pink corresponded to the wrong side of the fabric, and the lighter pink to the right side. (Similarly for the green layer.) It might make your point clearer if you were to add shading lines to the wrong side of the fabric, like on commercial patterns.

And this is great advice Nandra, The darker pink just indicated the piece that was behind the other one, but I should definitely figure out a way to do the shading which indicates the correct side/wrong side of the fabric. Thank you!

Super excited to share this with everybody. It's a reversible dress with a high low hem that I made over the weekend, and I've done a lil tutorial to go with it The method outlined in the tutorial is great because it can be used to line pretty much any sleeveless tank-top or dress, with a finish nice enough that it can be worn inside out.
I tried posting it here, but the tutorial photos were resized too small to be useful.

You can find the instructions my blog, http://www.mollytov.com/how-to-sew-a-reversible-dress/ along with a pile of other tutorials and projects. Anyways, hope you enjoy it. Constructive criticism is always welcome!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tulip Wrap Skirt (Tutorial Link) on: March 17, 2013 12:13:42 AM
A simple tulip wrap skirt. The fabric came from a smokey old microsuede curtain that I 'upcycled'. The rolled hem and the waistband are finished by hand, so getting it done took longer than necessary, but it could easily be finished in a couple hours otherwise. The pattern drafting instructions are posted on my blog for anybody who might be interested in making it themselves. Its a great project for a rainy afternoon!


9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Batwing Dress (tutorial link) on: March 03, 2013 12:29:48 AM
 Cheesy A bootilicious boatneck batwing dress that I made myself this morning. One of my favorite projects to date. It actually turned out how I imagined it would! Fancy that, eh?

Anyways, my fine craftsters, I posted a quick tutorial on my blog for anybody who might want to make their own version. http://www.mollytov.com/batwing-dress-tutorial/

As for whether or not hammer pants are back in style, I'm gonna go with a tentative yes...They've been popping up quite a bit in my tumblr feed lately. That's really where the inspiration came from.
