The ribbon tie is off to the side and there are slits on both sides.

P.s. - ignore all the messiness behind me.

I think this is the one.  I went looking b/c I couldn't see it either.

If you'll be hand-sewing all this, WOW!  Good luck & mucho patience!

24  Tan Cowl Neck Sweater in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by loreleiariadne on: February 18, 2006 12:54:56 PM
My dad had a huge roll of this tan knit material in the attic and he hadn't touched it in 5 yrs so ... I stole it!!! (shhh! don't tell!)

As for the actual making of the sweater, I just took a sweater that I liked and kinda traced around it, added 1" extra on my drawing for seams.  The neck is just one big rectangle of material that I just draped around my shoulder and pinned it how I liked.  I'm *not* a skilled seamstress, so it took me about 2 hrs. The big buttons I also stole from my dad.  He's an unending source of random odds and ends, I love it! Smiley

25  Scarf and sheer material --> Nightie in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by loreleiariadne on: December 21, 2005 09:34:13 PM

Scarf to soft cup bra top thanks to this site:  http://www.max.hi-ho.ne.jp/hotaru/underwear/how_to.html .  The straps are ribbons with mesh flower designs on them.  I had to hold the back closed b/c I don't have any black ribbon.  Angry

Thanks for looking!

26  Christmas Apron for my Mawmaw in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by loreleiariadne on: December 21, 2005 11:17:51 AM
This is for my Mawmaw (grandmother) for Christmas.  I made this out of green holly leaf w/ red berries patterned cotton for the main part and cream with poinsettias and gold swirlies pattern for the details.  It's not obvious, but the edging is pleated.

Thanks for looking!

27  Another Sushi Pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by loreleiariadne on: December 05, 2005 12:18:49 PM
Here is my take on the sushi pillow.  I used some awful polyester & gauzey material for the textured center bits.  The outside is a soft polyester, I think.

Hope my brother likes his x-mas present!

28  Re: Necktie Corset Belt - Now with tutorial on page 4 in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by loreleiariadne on: November 23, 2005 01:14:38 PM
Hey thanks for the great idea! I was going to make this for my cousin for christmas, but I like it so much I'm going to keep it Smiley

The front part is a little crooked, but I don't think it is terribly noticeable.  I'm a size 6-8 and used 8 ties and the top width of the ties are 4".  I didn't use the really wide ties, I could only find more modern(read skinnier) ties so I had to measure out the ties, iron them flat and re-hem each tie, which took a lot longer.  I laced it with the only ribbon I have right now.  I think I'm going to go get some forest green or maroon velvet ribbon (it's thicker and keeps the laces looking nicer I think).  Thanks so much for the tute, I had loads of fun making it.

29  Scottish Terrier top in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by loreleiariadne on: November 22, 2005 12:31:36 AM
I forgot to take a before picture, but the top was a high-necked choke-you plain knit top.

here's the re-con.  I added a v-neck and a scotty patch that I made w/ the zig-zag stitch.

a close-up of the patch. yah I haven't sewn it on yet.  I'm debating wether I should hand sew it on or get that no-sew iron-on stuff.

I'm thinking about making the straps smaller to look more like a vest to wear a button-up under.  Maybe take it in around the torso b/c it's huge.
