1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Tartan love part three and four O_O on: September 22, 2008 12:03:03 PM
Thanks for all your comments! the top was modified from the Jane pattern on burdastyle ---->http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/221 i took inspiration from one of the Jane creations with the "flounce" detail. You just sew the extra fabric at the front in between the front panel and inner facing. I used a triangular piece of fabric and pleated it Smiley

MORE tartan and checks and general squares...

I adapted the Malissa pattern from burdastyle.com

And a cami with frill detail on the front made from the same fabric:

OK so i haven't made anything in a few years because alevels completed and degrees started...but i was made redundant so did something productive instead Tongue as in selling my wardrobe, then after doing so realising i needed some clothes. so many stripes/lines/tartan/checks etc. later:

on the hanger

i used a pattern that i found on holiday in a prima mag..i added darts in the back and front as the a-line cut didn't suit me. theres piping detail along all the seams. haven't yet decided whether to add buttons as i usually just belt up instead.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HAVE FOUND THE FABRIC (although its already in top form...) IN NEED OF IDEAS! on: March 28, 2007 03:27:43 PM
OK. I bought this top:
[imghttp://www.missselfridge.com/wcsstore/MissSelfridge//images/catalog/156057046_large.jpg[/img]http://I know that I don't really want in this style, but I fell in love with the fabric. I got in the sale in a size which will...lets say give me room for reconstruction. It's a UK size 16 and i want it down to an 8 so you get the idea of how much spare fabric is going to be left over. I'm not really into the idea of a smock top; in need of something which defines the waist better, and I don't wanna turn it into a cami. Any ideas from my list of demands??!?!

I had a top like this in my mind:

but is there any way of incorporating the "angel sleeves" they call em!? Huh Will attempt anything, even if it's stupidly difficult!

WOW! I LOVE THE FABRIC. I've been looking for something like that for AGES...could you tell me where you got it? Plus love the dress. So pretty! Love all of it!!!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ultra-Floofy-Dress: We Have Stripes! ||||||| on: October 06, 2006 11:33:32 AM
AHA! So it has taken me a while to get round to using this fabric...I stored it away in early February and hasn't seen the light of day for months...Plus I kept on starting and stopping. I kept changing my mind! Ah well. Now I have made some progress: it's finally finished.

The stripes are white, yellow and grey. The yellow makes the grey seem slightly green-ish. But it isn't. Definitely grey and yellow.

The pattern is my own, and has top-stitching on the front panels and sleeves/shoulder. My aim was to create a dress that was flattering to my straight-up-and-down "figure"...

The front:

The Back:

At an Angle:

p.s. the skirt isn't wonky, perfectly symmetrical. It's just that I had to keep on walking too and fro with the useless camera Tongue Plus it has a square neckline, it's just the cami underneath is showing.

I painted this using poster paints at college. It is a BIG picture. It's four A2 pages stuck together...no idea how many metres or yards that is, but it almost covers an entire wall! We had to draw around each other so that's a real sized me.  Tongue

Here's a link to a bigger picture: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/39850054/?qo=21&q=by%3Acpeters+sort%3Atime+-in%3Ascraps
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dress that needs a Little extra :P on: September 11, 2006 11:54:53 AM
Hey! I haven't got any pictures of the new dress I made a start on yesterday...well it's almost finished.

The description: It's got a really full skirt, more than a typical circle skirt if that makes any sense Cheesy It has a fitted bodice and is made from a stripey yellow, white and grey fabric. The length is above the knee so the neckline can't be too low... Undecided

What I need ideas for is the neckline. Do I go for a typical straight lined box type line or more of a scoop neck? I tried a cowl neck but the fabrics just too stiff...

It is going to have a couple of inches added to the bottom, preferably lace or chiffon. What colour?!

I drew up a tut. If you can't read my dodgy writing just email me and I'll try and translate it for you!
