Your dress turned out super nice. It's a really accurate recreation of the original, but I like that it's not exactly the same. I agree with stereoette, I like yours better!

Great job! I love how the bow contrasts the dress, it's a lovely pattern too. Plaid fills me with glee!

Oh my awesomeness! That is super pretty, and looks amazing on you as well.
4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Matcha Cookies on: May 18, 2006 11:17:16 PM
Okay, I noticed there wasn't anything on here relating to matcha cookies so I thought I'd throw this up. I made these tonight. My recipe is modified from the "Matcha-Matsu-White-Choko Cookies" recipe. You can find it at http://blog.jagaimo.com/archive/2005/05/11/389.aspx.

I left out the fancy parts and managed to "vegan-ize" the recipe quite easily.

Plain Matcha Cookies

cup Earth Balance Spread
tsp salt
cup Taikoo unrefined golden granulated sugar
1 egg replaced (1/4c. applesauce mixed with 1/2tsp. baking powder)
tsp. vanilla (the fake stuff because I'm not rich!)
1 tsp. matcha powder (found in the tea section at the Chinese superstore near my house)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup flour

Cream butter with salt and sugar.
Add matcha, "egg" and vanilla and mix until consistent.
Stir in baking powder and flour.

Drop in 1 tbsp. portions on a baking sheet with room for 3" diameters.
Bake at 375F (190C) 12-15 minutes until edges are lightly browned.
Rest before removing from sheet.
Yields 16-20 cookies.

I ended up with exactly 20 little cuties.

Unfortunately I don't have a before picture. Though I could pin the straps on and that would give a rough idea. Hmm . . . .

Okay, ignore the fact that I Just got in from school and look grumpy.

This is a rough approximation of what it looked like. Though there was about 1 and 1/2 inches more of the green part and it was not snug like it is now (at all, it was rather breezy in the bad way)

I got this amazing dress from a friend of mine at a clothing swap we had. I loved the fabric, but alas, the dress was too big for me in the bust area (oddly enough that applies to a lot of clothes). So after a few weeks of just staring at it trying to figure out what to do I decided that it would work as a skirt. I wanted to retain as much of the fabric as possible and this seemed to be the best way to do that.

So here is a shot of the full skirt.

And a detail one of the fabric which I obsess over every time I look at it.

And the waist band which I did by using about an inch and a half roll over to get the right level. I only wanted a certain amount of the green patterned part showing when I was done. And then used 3/4 inch no roll elastic just threaded though and sewn at the ends when I got it to around the right size.

And ignore the fact that I'm lazy and copied some of the text directly off my blog. Really . . . I'm supposed to be studying right now, not being an internet dork, but I can't help it!

That's so pretty. I love all the shades of green. Out of curiosity, is it stretchy or is there a zipper in there somewhere?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Bright scarf on: April 16, 2006 09:30:15 PM
alas, I have NO clue what kind of yarn it is. It's colourful. And thick. And lumpy. Those were my criteria for picking it. I'm not much into the knitting. That was really the last thing I ever made, and ever plan on making.

I think middle of May would work out well.

Hey, I would be in for this. As long as the end date isn't something insane like one week from the start date. I'm trying really hard to eliminate responsibilities and commitments in my life, but it's a toughie. Though if I could replace them with craft related commitments (versus work and volunteer stuff again) I think that would make me happy like a panda bear.

So that means that yes, I am in.
