1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pink and black striped string bikini - with boy cut bottoms! on: July 02, 2006 01:38:22 PM
I haven't posted in so long, so I decided to get off my butt and do it. The pattern is from Kwik-Sew. Both cups are lined, and part of the bottoms.
It was definately EASY! The hardest part was lining up the fabric to cut - ughhh it took me about 30 minutes. But the rest was fairly easy, and all together it probably took me two hours ish.



yep, it is gathered at the bottom.




Comments? The bottoms elastic only took about 10 minutes, so its crappy in some parts ( I was excited! )
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Mm Mm cherries! on: January 01, 2006 10:47:24 PM
I FINALLY found cherry fabric. And it was even on sale.

This would be my first creation with it:


I'm thinking of adding a bit of lace to the bottom, because its a tad short.

I pretty much love it to death already.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Striped and green skirt? Fantastic. (imgheavy) on: December 20, 2005 09:26:27 PM
I made this last night out of boredom from 2 am to 4am. I LOVE it.
the waistband is stretch, and the stripes are cotton. I'm tempted to put a black lace I have on the bottom, but I'm not sure yet!
The seam is in the back, I'm sure you see.
Sewing the waist to the cotton was the hardest part. since I didn't hem to top too, I had to go back and fix alot of places that had accidently unwraveled.
My table wearing it..

Yep, I wore it today and I'm prettyyyy happy!
Happy Holidays Cheesy
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Christmas gift Tote (picheavy) on: December 20, 2005 09:19:38 PM
A reversible tote for a close friend. She loves pirates! The flag was my first transfer on, and the black pockets were added because I messed up on the ironed text so I need to cover it lol. I spent about 3 hours on it, and 15 bucks.
Orange Side
Flag and Pockets
My first pleated pocket. I sewed this on a dumb way, and it really made me mad. It had to be seam ripped, ironed, and cut for thirty minutes. Angry
Star side. Its got no pockets, just plain stars. Halloween fabric! On sale, yay Smiley
It fits about 9 videos in it.

Happy Holidays Cheesy

Edit: BTW, she LOVES it, and brags/shows it off everywhere lol
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Urgent help please! on: December 13, 2005 10:20:53 PM
Okay, so tonight I did my first iron on.

Well, I did the first picture (JackRackam flag) right, and I was putting some text under it, and half way through i said to myself, "oh ASEIYJSIHJISLJ! ITS NOT FLIPPED!"
So, I ripped it off. Half the transfer came off, and I managed to pick alittle bit more off.
I know this wasn't the best approach, but yea. Too late!

Does anyone know how to get this off? I picked some of it off, but I can't really get anymore! Is there a secret trick i can use?

EDIT: By the way, I don't want to try pour boiling water on it or anything, in fear of melting the other one that worked perfectly. The fabric is an orange cotton, and the text black.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pink, black and lace! Who wouldn't love the combo?!(picheavy) on: November 09, 2005 09:23:31 PM
Yay for stretch tubes.
The pink is actually from an old ripped tank - but I just it out and just used the old seam for the hem on the top. The lace was bought weeks ago, and the black was spare material from my tutu waist band.

Please excuse my dirty bathroom mirror!
Also, if my boobs look slightly lopsided to you - its actually the seam that i sewed crooked in some parts haha.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From pillowcase to lovely shirt! on: September 22, 2005 04:03:12 PM
My first pillowcase top Smiley
Someone at my school told me theres a designer who makes shirst just like this, apparently. But I don't know the name!


It was my first zipper attempt too. The top kind of sucks, but I still love it Smiley
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I'm not sure what I could call it, but its awesome! on: September 22, 2005 03:13:53 PM
I saw the orginals on a website for $20. I figured, hey, I can make that easily and for less than half!



The back was reallllly hard. I had to restitch it three times and I ran out of black thread lol.
Comments welcome Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / I have a top - I just need the skirt! Any ideas?! on: September 17, 2005 06:16:47 PM

How do you think I should go about making that skirt? I thought maybe just strips of fabric, but I don't want to do that andn screw it up! lol. Anyone have any ideas?

Oh, just pretend its not attached to the top Smiley
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Kind of circle skirt and shirt. on: August 12, 2005 03:42:41 AM
Yes, these are made of the same material. The skirts actually a lot poofier, but its hard to tell.
I like the shirt too, except in the second picture it looks like a suckass tie, well thats because my ex tied it up and he was rather not so talented in theshirttyingup area, lol.
Feedback negative and positive please!
