Thank you! The sequins on the hearts were quite messy when I was constructing the garment. I am still finding sequins in little nooks and crannies of my house. I am very happy to hear your nice comments about the collection! I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know what you think.

Thank you so much everybody. I am so happy my dress was a featured topic. Because I am so short, I had to make the skirt above my knee. The heels are actually extremely comfortable. I originally imagined the dress with the same shoes but white, but as I only had the black I made due with what I had.

So for my knitwear class I designed a 23 piece line, but I only actually patterned and completed 5 pieces for the class. We had to design a lot more to make sure we had a cohesive line and then we picked the ones we actually design. After I designed the pieces, I draped a couple of the garments to create the patterns and I pattern drafted the rest of them. The biggest challenge was the crotch on the leggings. I made five samples before they did not gather and bunch terribly. Everything else came together very easily.

My knitwear line is called Lovely, Creepy, Daydream. It is based toward the creepy/cute genre of clothing, kind of an homage to pastel goth.

I hope you all like it!!!!

The first image is my concept board. I will write descriptions above all the garments

The first garment is a dress with a heavy "ooze" peplum

The second is a shirt that is sheer and has an opaque bow on the front. This is made to be worn with a set of leggings which will be in the next photograph. I did not make the skirt in this picture, just the shirt. I dyed the fabric for the collar and the bow.

Here are the leggings. They are a 4-way stretch, and the tights at the bottom disconnect so you can wear different tights depending on your outfit for the day.

Here are the leggings paired with the shirt. Sorry it is kind of blurry.

This is a bathing suit. The heart piece is hand stitched on the front, as well as the little one on the back of the bottoms.

This cobweb dress was made as a cover-up for the swimwear. I dyed the fabric and it has a slight purple tint which does not show up in the picture. I also dyed the collar and cuff pieces, and the bow pockets. Oh yeah, the little bows on the side are pockets.

I took a couture class for school and decided to make a wedding dress. I am not getting married, but I did make it to fit me because I could not afford the fabric to make it for an actual model's size. I am short enough where I could use a lot less fabric. I hand appliqued the lace pieces on the bodice. I also did all of the beading on the bodice by hand, and I attached the scalloped lace by hand as well.

The design process was all me as well. I came up with the idea, draped the garment, made the pattern, and then did the mock-ups until I was happy with it. The skirt has a petticoat, and then there are three different layers of double circle skirts. The first layer is silk dupioni, the second is silk organza, and the top layer is silk taffeta. The bodice is a satin and has french lace appliqued on, as well as glass beading.

They very last photo is before the dress was complete, but it was the best picture I had of the applique and beading on the bodice.

Thank you so much everybody!!! My friend does plan to wear it out and about, so I think as long as it was styled correctly it wouldn't seem costumy. Another detail which I forgot was I used the zippers from the sides of the pants down by the feet to attach the front and back on either side. She has a small waist and big hips and carhartt doesn't stretch, so she can unzip those and put it up, and zip then back up and it fits snuggly at her waist again. I definately think you could do a childs version, especially if you had two pairs of pants to work with. I managed to get it out of one pair because she got them in mens sizes and they were huuuuuge. But i did use every last scrap of fabric but one. In fact, I am editing this so there is a side shot with the zippers.

Hey everybody! Well my friend was entering a relay race, and it was constume themed. She runs a brewery, and the town we live in is a scenic german themed town. She wanted a St. Pauli girl type of outfit, but more like Icicle Brewing Company girl. She came up with the idea to make a dirndle out of carhartts and enlisted me to create it for her. She also gave me a regular flannel which I made more like a dirndle top. I also made a petticoat to wear underneath the skirt. I literally had a 10x3 scrap left over from the carhartt material and that was it. We got a mens size L overalls. The front fly and pockets are fully functional.  Please tell me what you think?

I edited this so I could add this last picture. There are zippers starting at the top of the skirt on the left and right side and they unzip all the way down to where the skirt meets the ruffle. This was so it could still be a tight fit on the waist, but could also become large enough to fit over shoulders or hips to get it on and off. The zippers were part of the carhartts as well. They were on the outside of each pantleg, at the bottom. You can just see a hint of the zipper, but I realize I don't have very good side shots, and the dirndle now belongs to my friend, so I had to make due.

This is soooo sick. I love everything Mario, and the egg elbow patches and hood liner was such a clever idea.
