11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / sneak peak: red riding hood jacket/dress! on: October 21, 2007 06:15:35 PM
okay it's not complete, but i was so excited that i had to post it. it's my halloween costume, but i will definately wear it wayyy long after halloween passes. Cheesy

it'd made of red flannel and is fully lined with red gingham check material. i'm using mccall's m5531. it's still needs buttons and to be hemmed! i'll post the finished product and action shots at a later date Smiley

12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / i confiscated tuxedo shirts to make a dress. sort of a TUTE added! on: September 03, 2007 05:21:24 PM
i took home some tuxedo shirts from work that were being thrown away, because they accidently ended up at the wrong laundromat. that would have been a waste of some good poly/cotton! haha


after  Smiley


13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / i have a habit of buying things that fall apart. help? on: July 01, 2007 07:28:05 AM
i once bought a dress that fell apart when i got it dry cleaned. completely dry rotted. i might actually post it to see if it can be saved. anywho.. i bought this sailor outfit at the thrift store and i was wondering what would be the most gentle way to wash it? it is very old. and i certainly do not want it to fall apart  Sad

if anyone has any helpful hints, they would be greatly appreciated  Smiley
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / baby, baby, don't say navy!: a tank top on: June 30, 2007 09:19:57 AM
i'm finally finding some use for my free thrifted fabric thanks to sherbert!

the fabric has bows on it, no clue what kind of material it is? the navy was a poly/cotton t-shirt i found at work and confiscated because it was so soft and stretchy! i work at an industrial laundry, and hopefully who's ever shirt that was, doesn't miss it too much. haha  Cheesy

thanks again to sherbert for the inspiration  Smiley
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / second attempt at sundress! simplicity 3882 on: June 04, 2007 08:34:20 AM
i made my last dress 2 sizes too big. this one seems to fit just right!  Smiley

the fabric had absolutely no stretch what so ever, even though the pattern called for the stretchy kind.
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / sundress made from vintage fabric! on: May 22, 2007 06:02:04 PM
i believe the pattern is simplicity 3882. the fabric was free from an owner of a local thrift shop! i made the dress too big, but the belt takes it in. it is my first completed project with a pattern. hopefully i'll get better! i actually just realized i forgot to hem it...

close up of the fabric!

17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / spaghetti or princess? on: May 01, 2007 04:29:14 PM
i found a machine washable prom dress at the salvation army, exactly a week before my prom. oh, and it was only 6 bucks  Smiley  haha. i took the puffy, lettuce-like sleeves off.

with the scraps i'm going to either make spaghetti straps or i was thinking toned down puffy sleeves that slightly go off my shoulders. any opinions?
