1  Eco-friendly a-level project (IMG HEAVY) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by she on: September 01, 2007 05:37:27 AM
I was waiting until I received my exam results before I posted this one. I didn't want to jinx myself or anything :S

My brief was to design original, eco-friendly clothing and I decided to make the outfit out of second hand clothes and fabric scraps.

Sorry about all the pictures...

The whole outfit

The front of the jacket - each panel is made from a different fabric and most panels have been decorated or manipulated in some way. There is an off-centre zip.

The back of the jacket

The sleeves can be ruched and tied in place using the ribbons

The skirt - which began life as a large size skirt. It was resized and reshaped into a pencil skirt. Then I added applique detail.

Close up of rosette-style applique. The leopard print fabric was sewn randomly to create a crumpled look. My logo was stencilled on and hand-embroidery was added. It's probably my favourite part of the whole outfit Smiley

Thanks for taking the time to look Smiley

2  First proper embroidery attempt... in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by she on: May 12, 2007 06:31:54 AM
The only embroidery I'd ever done before this was pretty poor and very simplistic, but I fell in love with sublime stitching patterns and decided to include them on my dress for my birthday party.

Here are the results...
(sorry the pictures are big)

I'm happy with it and my guests liked it too Smiley

3  AS Textiles Project (4 pictures) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by she on: August 10, 2006 07:13:30 AM
So I haven't posted anything in a while and since i haven't got any pictures of my prom dress yet, I thought "what do i have to show my fellow craftsters?" and lo and behold i remembered my AS Textiles Project for school. The brief i set myself was to design an outfit for Vivienne Westwood based on the Theme of Alice in Wonderland.

The pictures aren't very flattering as i have a problem with looking decent in photgraphs, but here it is...

The Whole Outfit

The Corset Top

EDIT: ooh i forgot to tell you that the twin-needle stiching that you can see down the skirt is in a UV thread that changes from white to purple and yellow when it is outdoors or under a UV light. there is more of it on the waistband of the skirt, but you can't see it under the pointed part of the top xxx

The Back of The Top

The Back of The Gathered Skirt - Three Frilled Inserts with red embroidery

Any comments questions? I'm a bit nervous about showing this to be honest  Embarrassed But please tell me what you think or ask any questions you might have... Thank You xxx

4  Re: Tarot Card Table + Barrel table: what to do? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by she on: June 11, 2005 11:58:28 AM
oooh yeah treasure maps would be cool.
or a big map of all the world with all the names of oceans in fancy writing and stuff...

.. the only other pirate-related things i could think of without it being a bit Gwen Stefani is a ship's wheel on the top surface

hope this link works

anyway keep us updated on what you decide to do. i really like the tarot table

5  Idea for a T-shirt in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by she on: May 31, 2005 12:17:52 PM
I saw this mega-cute tee today and I thought it was really cute, but since if I copied it it would probably be defeating the object of the girl's originality, I thought I'd share it will my fellow craftsters and see what you guys make of it.
She hadn't made it herself and as the design was printed on fabric and then the top just made out of that fabric like a camisole, if you choose to re-create it, you'd have to come up with your own idea of how to (but that what craftsters do right?!?!?).

So here goes... as i said it was a camisole. The background of the fabric was like a blue sky with a few fluffy white clouds dotted about and then it was covered in lil pictures of sherbert fountains:
hope the picture works.

And then in the middle, in swirly cute red and white writing it said: "I'm dippy about you". I thought it was really cute and I hope you do too. If anyone decides to make it, please post it on this board. Maybe you won't like it and think i'm loopy (or dippy hehe) but it was worth a shot....

What do you think?

I just realised that i said "cute" about 4 or 5 times during this post. oops - my friend fred tells me off for saying cute, but then he also tells me off for owning too many bags... so whatever... but he can jump REALLY high!!!

6  Yearbook - hope this is the right board - my first proper post in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by she on: May 12, 2005 02:04:59 PM
In the city where I live, there are only a couple of affordable stationers and since we are leaving school this year everyone is buying notepads to use as yearbooks for their friends to sign and put photos in, but everyone is buying the same ones because they are on a "buy one get one free" offer...

...but I thought why not make mine a little different?

so i bought this plain book

and covered it, adding lace rick rack and my school badge and I'm quite proud of how it turned out. exactly how I planned anyway...
what do you think?

7  Pony Beads in Beads: Discussion and Questions by she on: May 07, 2005 08:44:56 AM
Hey I have just bought some metallic pony beads but I don't know what to do with them. i saw a girl on here had made a belt from them, but I have abandoned that idea since I don't have that many or any leather straps to weave it with, so I am calling upon you my fellow craftsters for your ideas...

Any suggestions?
