1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 18th Century Boy on: March 29, 2017 04:31:15 PM
My son's newest suit, for our Family Portrait this year. Used Burda (2461 2452) patterns to do it as a base and adjusted the pattern as I cut while looking at historical patterns online. The fabric for the frock coat is from Hobby lobby, and the waistcoat and breeches are ups-cycled kimono from Yoko Dama.

More details on the sewing on my blog, but most of the pictures are all here Cheesy

Ohhhhhhh waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when (Last October) I went to Disney and had a whole Me-made wardrobe to reflect my (lack of) maturity, grace(lessness) and poise(d to fall down). Here are a few of the dresses in action! 

Wore this one to meet Winnie the Pooh!

Ever since I watched The Little Mermaid I've been obsessed with this dress. Its everything a princess should be in my eyes. Anyway, I did a walk-through of how I made it on my blog, using one of the Big Four Patterns, if anyones interested. Smiley

5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Disney-ween! on: November 07, 2014 12:31:29 PM
For Halloween this year I went all out. I mad my very first trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth, DISNEYWORLD. And I caught a terrible disease. Disneyfever.

I must go back next year.

Anyway, I bought tickets for my nieces and sister and went to Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party. We Tricked and Treated and walked around and it was amazing. I took the opportunity to use my sewing skills and made costumes for the whole party.

A little More Detail, yes? My sister and I were Morgana and Ursula. I, being the more talented, took on Ursula. Ariel had a blast with it!.

Niece number one became a historically (less revealing) Jasmine and Wow'd Jasmine and her street rat:

And so Did I!

(I might mention here I ATE IT UP! There are so few oportunities that my particular brand of crazy is socially acceptable and this is one of them!!!)

Niece number Two chose Cinderella, which I did. (After a fashion. I like to put my own spin on things) At the Villains Club she met her long lost stepmother who decreed she was 'head to toe'.

I've got to do my walk throughs with them but Im still in Disney Depression. All four costumes were made by tweaking some Big Four patterns.

Anyway, Ta!

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Cinderella on: August 30, 2014 08:05:31 AM

For Halloween this year I surprised my nieces with a trip to DISNEYWORLD!! I also got us tickets to Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party, one of the few times that older peeps can dress uu. Since my nieces are 12 and 13 respectively, itll be one of the few times they can actually Princess it us.

Niece Two's favorite Princess is Cinderella. So I made this for her, in secret. I'll get better photos after our trip on the far end of October.

For a more indepth tutorial on my trials getting this thing together, visit my blog!.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Three new dresses! on: June 29, 2014 06:30:09 PM
Well, not new. New to me. More like, three recent sewn retro reprints! Yay! Anyway, these are some Butterick Retro Reprints I picked up on sale. Two patterns, three dresses. Smiley Definitely recommend for some wardrobe fillers!!

Also, a moment of Victory.

Victory ROLLS!

Which I totally did. All by myself. And only had to redo like twice because they fell like undercooked souffle. Oh yeah. Cheesy

Thank you so much for checking out my work! Enjoy your day!!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Playsuit From Modern Patterns! on: May 11, 2014 05:49:02 PM
So this is me. I made a playsuit selection from some modern patterns. This is as finished as its going to get, because of some minor but inncessant fit issues, lol.

and the back:

Patterns used McCalls 6969 (Playsuit) McCalls 5431 (skirt) and Simplicity 3921 (Bolero)

Many liberties were taken with these patterns. Lol. More photos and a couple other in progress updates found on my blog:

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / I must tell you how ardently... on: April 22, 2014 06:02:47 PM
...I admire your dandylions.

This is part of my yearly job as sewing obsessed mother to dress myself and others in historical clothes. This year is regency. This particular costume is Burda 9528, wherein I made the coat, the vest (waistcoat) and the fall front pants. Im hoping having my adorable son fully clothed will encourage me to sew my sisters, moms and own dresses. They're a bit more difficult.

REDICULOUS amount of photos on my blog. (Mainly proud mama photos very few construction ones)

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Retro Rose on: April 22, 2014 03:04:19 PM
New shirts
So I have been mentally preparing myself for attempting to sew my summer/fall wardrobe. Hopefully my plans will come to fruition but so far when I plan things out I tend to well, ditch halfway.

This will be my first official planning post as pertains to wardrobe.

So I have planned approximately seven shirts. I have had really good success with two retro patterns which seem to flatter my figure and am chancing it with the final seventh.

The first three are variations on the pattern Simplicity 1692.

The first is a large rose print with rose buttons, fully lined in pale pink cotton, version D.

Simplicity 1692 Front View

When I first saw this fabric, I knew I had to have an article of clothing out of it. I mean, Hey! The huge cabbage roses are gorgeous, and the print is so lively but at the same time, soft and feminine. I decided to line it, I forget why, it probably would've handled being unlined.

Simplicity 1692 Back View

Mayhap the facing was too much for me? I dunno. Anyway, I cut out a 20 hoping for a 16 1/2 to 18 size but it came out a bit small. Instead of scrapping it I unpicked two of the pleaty-dart things in the front.

Unpicked innermost tucks

 Left me with a bit of blue marking but it fits! These are absolutely lovely pink roses at the shoulder.

Pretty. Smiley

Im working through two more shirts of this type can be found here::
