1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tartan love part three and four O_O on: September 14, 2008 03:54:35 PM

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.
4  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!
5  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
7  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?!
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My Picture of Autumn on: September 05, 2006 08:54:21 AM
This is my idea of autumn! I painted it then altered the contrast on my computer. I really like the colours! Nice and bright.  Grin

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / I Wall-Paper-ed My MP3 Player...with the inside of an Envelope! :D on: August 26, 2006 01:35:04 PM
So this might sound slightly nuts... Cheesy but if it makes you happy! I found this great grey pattern inside and envelope I got in the junk mail. I thought OOOH pretty. Then my eyes glazed over.  Grin What to do with it?   Roll Eyes Huh Roll Eyes Well I had been decorating my room a week ago and thought, why not do my MP3 player??! I didn't really like the silver colour anyway because everyone has that kinda thing. This is probably why I don't have an I-Pod; everyone else has one.  Undecided

I painted PVA glue over it after I stuck the paper on to make sure it doesn't get damaged and voila!

Before I found the envelope...

After the wall-paper-ing incident...

Different huh?  Grin
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Season - Autumn. What better than conkers? :) on: August 24, 2006 02:03:44 PM
I did this picture last year on what my teacher called "fancy expensive paper" Probably about 2 a sheet *chokes*. Glad it didn't go wrong! It is painted in inks and I've used bleach to get the orange-y effect.

In real life it's HUGE! When I get the chance to take it home, it's going straight on my blank wall, finally Cheesy

It's also on my artwanted gallery, it's got bigger pictures:
