111  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hello Sailor II :: A Bustier on: October 10, 2006 02:59:15 AM
Alrighty, say hello to the little sister of the  Hello Sailor blouse!https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=125643.0;topicseen

Just a basic panel-lined bodice with a ruffle along the bottom, seperating zipper in the back, two rows of white bias binding and three little ship-wheel buttons! HURRAH! It's a little big for me in the boobage area, which is fine because then i won't fall in love with it and not want to sell it! Hahah

112  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / I need opinions on which font to use on: October 08, 2006 07:03:36 PM
I'm having serious issues trying to decide which font to use for my business name.

My label is 50's inspired clothing with a, well i guess you could say 'hardcore' edge to them. ((You can check out stuff I've posted up here to see exactly what I do))

Here's all the fonts I like::

Please let me know!
113  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / "Hello Sailor" sailor-collared fitted blouse:: Finished! on: October 07, 2006 08:27:40 PM
So I attempted to make a sailor-top a few months ago, it was very difficult as I didn't have any bias binding and used ribbon as the contrast. it looked like shit, but was a good enough toile to see what to do next time.

Here's the front. I was concentrating very hard ((i usually have my boyfriend to take the photos of me and i had to do it in a mirror))

The back::

This is the back. Before I put white bias binding around the edge of the collar. ((Look at my cute model Alice))

And here's a close up of the buttons!

All-finished!!!! Grin

EDIT:: So i wore it today, just to see how it would stand up. I have to seriously rethink the button positioning! Oh yes, it seems all very well and good to place the buttons evenly down the line, but my god! I have to remember to put a button level with the bust line, as this can cause serious gaping! So instead of taking all the buttons off and trying to fix the buttonholes ((pretty much IMPOSSIBLE)), i discovered a nifty idea that my boyfriend had suggested. He said I should put press-studs down the line to do the blouse up and then put the little buttons as falsies down the front. I was in Spotlight today, and coincidentally found some press-stud TAPE! HURRAH! So I've stitched the press-stud tape behind the buttons and their partners over the buttonholes. This mean the shirt does up opposite now, but i don't mind, it's only a toile!


((But i know you guys thought it was perfect anyway Smiley ))
114  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Leopard-Print collared shirt made from a vintage dress pattern on: October 03, 2006 05:46:38 AM

This shirt was made from a too-big-for-me vintage dress pattern.

I didn't have enough material to make the skirt so i decided to drop the waist and make it in to a shirt. It was really hard, gave me a lot of grief and i stil don't wear it that often. The bust is still a bit too big ((i could take it in easily, but i couldn't be bothered)) and the shoulders stuck out too far. So when i tried to bring the shoulders in and reset the sleeves i went to the other extreme and too it too far in. So it still feels right to wear, but because i know all its faults i don't wear it. Silly Rabbit.

And just for good measure. My friend gave my rat Alice a bath today. She looks really spiky and scary <3 <3

115  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Motorbike Jacket on: October 03, 2006 05:24:42 AM

I made this last lot of holidays from tafe. I went to visit my parents and stayed for a while. My dad got a new motorbike so I went riding with him alot. A few years ago at a garage sale we bought this awesome leather motorbike jacket that is a tiny bit too big for me ((it gives me shoulders like a a footballer)).

Inspired by that jacket, I found a pattern for a trenchcoat. Unfortunatelty i couldn't buy a cool metal zipper ((but have since found where i can get them!)) so I had to make do with a chunky plastic one. Anyway, I had to redraft almost the entire pattern and shift the zipper to an angle.  The thing is fully lined and pretty much reversible ((not that i'd be caught dead wearing a white flannelette motorbike jacket with black hearts all over it)). Heh heh
116  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / More Rockabilly Goodness!!:: Chicken Drumstick-printed Strappy Top ((7 Pics)) on: October 03, 2006 04:35:12 AM

Hurrah! I'm A rockabilly ((or maybe redneck)) machine! I just whipped this one up today. The fabric is the best part I think! Red quilting cotton featuring tiny little perfectly-cooked chicken drumsticks, some are so good they've had bites taken out of them! This top has a seperating zipper in the back, cross-over straps ((lovingly positioned by my very good-looking strap-positioner Tim)) and two big black buttons. I also ran a strip of cm-wide black bias binding around the top. It's a little funky in the shaping, but it was my toile, so I will learn Smiley.

((there's my shirt in action today. I wore it to tafe and after lunch everyone finally noticed that it was chicken legs, hehehehhe. Anyway,my cat likes it, and he is not a curling-up-on-your-lap sorta guy!))


here's the good-looking strap positioner. We were on our way to Greazefest and he hadn't had breakfast. He's the dark haired one.

((My friend made her boyfriend's shirt and I ironed the patch onto Tim's shirt... hehehe))

Here's a much better picture of him, He's very adorable

EDIT:: Oh yeh, much more flattering picstures Smiley
117  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From Pvc SHORTS to a rockin Tutu *new pics* on: September 29, 2006 08:38:42 PM

I got given a pair of pvc shorts... shorts!   I know.   So i cut the legs off and added lotsa tulle. It's funny coz when i sit down for a while, then stand up, the tulle stays up and you can see my butt!


I put this pretty lace ribbon the inside so the seam where the tulle joined the pvc didn't scratch my littl bare legs.


or one... lol
118  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Circus Pants on: September 29, 2006 08:26:12 PM
I don't know where the sketch is, but for my first day at studying fashion we had to just draw crap. So i drew a cute outift with a cropped tuxedo jacket and these pants. I'm the only one in my class that actually makes stuff and wears it. Kinda surprising, i thought i'd have competition.

Anyway, here's my circus pants. They make my butt look amazing!

I'll put up the sketch when i find it

120  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cropped Rockabilly Jacket to got with the sundress on: September 29, 2006 08:05:49 PM
Here's a little jacket i made to go over my sundress ((https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=123616.msg1192769#new)). It also goes so good with jeans.

At tafe in garment assembly we made one the same out of this cute blue fabric ((like a cleaner's uniform.. heh heh)) and when i got home i ripped it apart so i had the pattern pieces and made thiscutie!
