1  secrets: illustration in watercolour and ink in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by grapefruiit on: December 15, 2010 09:28:13 PM

recently, i've been reading mahn-hwa's like 궁. getting in touch with my korean heritage and all. you can see the oriental influence in her hairstyle, which is a traditional korean chignon-type style worn by the choson dynasty aristocracy.

and it's been raining lately. rain either makes me restless, or puts me in a peaceful/calm/productive mood. lately, it's been the latter. i like this girl so much i made prints, which i may give away as Christmas presents. probably not though! i'm thinking of opening an etsy store.

more on my blog! (see signature)

2  Pomegranates and Daffodils in Needlework: Completed Projects by grapefruiit on: January 22, 2009 11:17:41 PM
So I've returned to embroidery once again, and I decided I'd like to try a few traditional things before getting back to freeform/contemporary Smiley

The second one is still incomplete, hahah. They're nothing fancy, but I rather like them.
The patterns are from: http://www.blackworkarchives.com/

3  Aubergine-hued Cocktail Dress with Pleated Bodice (EDIT: pics w/ dress on) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by grapefruiit on: November 09, 2008 06:04:51 PM
Hi, this is the first time in forever that I've posted to Craftster but anyhoo, down to business:

This is the real colour of the fabric. And here's the dress itself:

Bust/bodice area:

More bust detail:

I know it's a pretty simple dress, but it's been ages since I last sewed, so I'm proud there weren't any major screw-ups. I messed up the front where the straps meet, but that was conveniently covered up by the rose! Hahah  Cheesy

EDIT~ As promised, here are the pictures with the dress on

Sorry, I know they're a bit dark, but you get the general idea..

The weather here has been so WEIRD.
Does this keep you relatively in between not-too-hot-not-too-cold?

It looks lovely!!

Completely off topic, but
I want some gumboots.

hahah! yeahh baby-pink ones with polka dots  Wink
ACTUALLY; even though I made it for winter, it's much too cold unless I wear it with a shirt underneath, leggings, boots, a chunky knit cardigan and a scarf.. O_o;;
And after that, it's really, really hard to actually see the dress.  How disappointing hehehh

what a perfect dress.
would you post a tutorial, please?
Umm, yeah sure, except I'm not really good at tutorials because I tend to just start out with a vague idea in my head, and improvise as I go.
But basically; (this is done on paint cos my Photoshop DIED!)

hope that helps  Smiley

i like!  Smiley ... one question though: how did you get yours so long?! i made one like this a while ago and even though i used up all the fabric, the skirt ended up really short!! (and that was a year ago so i think i've grown quite a bit since then...)  >>>

so i can't wear it.  Sad

6  Re: Did anyone make anything off of something they founf at Abercrombie ?? in Designer Clothing Homage by grapefruiit on: October 30, 2005 08:50:59 PM
heya.. this is a skirt i did a while back >>> im not sure if its abercrombie enough for you but it seems like the kinda thing they might sell...


just a normal pleated skirt.. but it was pretty easy so you might wanna try it out. you just cut the jeans below the crotch area then cut the leg pieces and sew them into one looong strip.. then you pleat that strip bit and then sew it onto the top bit of the jeans. make sense?? hope that helps...

wow ~! thats niCe!! it looked really short in the pictures and i was expecting it to be like, halfway down your thighs but that's a reaaaally nice length.. usually in my pants to skirt recons i run out of fabric and it ends up being really short.. like this one -->


i can never wear it out coz i refuse to wear skirts 10 cm above my knee in public.. your pleats look so nice though!! my are all wonky and uneven..
