1  Cute Psychobilly/Pinup Inspired Summer Dress!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by maehem on: June 09, 2010 05:13:24 PM
So I've sewn most my life, but I hardly ever use patterns. I just always kinda wing it Cheesy

But I decided to buy a couple patterns that I could use this summer, to cut down on my spending. I buy wayyy too much clothing Roll Eyes
Well, I am HOOKED! I was SO happy at how nice and easy it was to make something with a pattern! No frustrating myself and ripping a bunch of seams! haha.

This dress was Simplicity 2362, view E. I slightly modified it... which I will go into detail about below.

The front has a sweetheart neckline, and little gathers. It fits sooo well! I added 3 limeish-pinkish buttons.

The buttons match the lime cotton lining in the top. YEP!! Fully lined, and faced! BAM! I would never do that on my own Wink

This is where my modification came in. The pattern called for a 12" hidden zipper, but I wanted the raw, metal zipper to show. It was from a pair of bondage pants that an ex wore in high school Tongue

Oh, yeah! What's this?!?!

My first real pockets!! I danced around a little when I finished this part! I have never made pockets like this before, and I'm soo glad this pattern taught me how! Plus, I HATE dresses without pockets! Cheesy

So yeah, this pattern was pretty easy, and the result is SOOO flattering. I wore it out for a friends birthday and was just feeling SOO awesome from the complements. I think I will be making my own clothing a lot more now, it reeallllly pays off, and makes the end result so much more special and worth the money Grin

7  Ideas for a daycare or a spa? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by maehem on: January 12, 2010 06:14:57 PM

Sooo I have to design a spa or a daycare for my final project in school. I'm getting my degree in Interior design.

But I'm having a hard time coming up with a good theme for a daycare... and the spa seems daunting. What sort of cute themes can you guys think of for a daycare? I've thought of a zoo theme, circus theme, and a fairytale theme... but they all seem so overdone!

And I've never been to a spa! I don't know where to start on that one... any ideas you guys have would be amazing!

thanks so much!!
