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.


4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Dress (Tutorial Link) on: March 25, 2013 02:39:53 PM
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!

5  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!


6  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/

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hammer Time!!! (Tutorial link) on: February 23, 2013 10:45:06 PM

I made the harem pants from a medium weight black jersey.
The crop top is some ridiculous poly/spandex blend.
It's a loud combo. Gonna save it for my next 80's party.
Or maybe for tomorrow when I visit my grandma after she comes home from church  Wink

If anybody's interested in making the pants for themselves, I posted a tutorial on my blog. It's the first tutorial I've ever made using adobe illustrator, so I'd love to hear what you think! http://www.mollytov.com/diy-harem-pants/

Thanks craftsters. Kisses!!!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Peplum Skirt Tutorial Link on: January 07, 2013 06:44:38 PM
A quick and easy peplum skirt with an elastic waistband. It only took me one afternoon to make, no pattern required. I made this one out of a synthetic taffeta, but any double sided woven fabric should work. It can be worn with or without a belt, but I find that it looks a bit girly when I wear it without. Heh, even with the belt, it might actually look better on a little girl Tongue

Anyways, here's a tutorial from my blog for anybody who might like to make the skirt themselves. http://www.mollytov.com/ruffled-peplum/

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lace Back Top with Matching Skirt (Tutorial Link!) on: November 11, 2012 12:52:00 PM
A lace back crop-top with a matching high waist maxi skirt, made of soft jersey and black stretch lace.

I posted a tutorial on my blog for anybody who might want to make the top and skirt themselves. http://www.mollytov.com/lace-top-maxi-skirt/

The skirts an easy project, a good intro to drafting custom fit garments. It can be sewn with a regular sewing machine or on a serger.

The top might be more of an intermediate level project, its takes a little more intuition to draft, and requires stretch binding on the neckline and armholes (which can be a pain in the butt to do) but I have links to great binding instructions if youre willing to try it. Oh, and the top really does look way better if you sew it with a serger, since the seams will show through the lace.

But yeah, let me know what you think! Im always looking for constructive criticism and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 50's alien doll on: November 04, 2012 06:20:13 PM
A cotton sateen blouse and skirt combo with lace trim and cheap plastic buttons. I wanted something vintage, girly and a lil bit extra terrestrial.
