thank you!

tickle-me-emo, i really couldnt say how long it took. i definitely sewed it in stages, but probably quite a few hours is my guess. haha commissions...ohh no i can hardly sew a dress for me. i practically sew it on to myself. once i made costumes for me and 4 of my friends (we were the von trapp kids from the sound of music, completeeeely different story) and it's just really hard for me to think that way. but im flattered!. haha

thank you! tiny_teesha, the girl who's modeling the dress is a model, the magazine says her name is Caitlin, at the agency NEXT.

chan g- i found the dress in nylon magazine, the designer is mina stone.
about the silk, i was told it frayed a lot, which is did, so i just made sure to keep extra seam allowances in case of a fray attack. other than that, it went through my machine fine and didnt snag or anything. woo

aw thank you everyone

lupin bunny- i believe the original dress had the button down straps, that was my favorite part about it, actually. but i wasn't able to incorporate it into my dress. i bought the perfect buttons too. i think i'll turn them into earings for the dress instead.

i'm really pleased with how my prom dress came out. i modeled it after one that was 300 dollars, mine was 30 and i like it just as much.

i didn't use a pattern, but the skirt is a circle skirt, because thats really the only kind i can make that don't look dumpy. the blue is organza, the white is silk. i was dying to buy some of that silk forever and never had a reason, until nowww.


and my dress, which i did change quite a bit, just for my taste/preference.

thank you. umm i just wrapped the strip of white fabric around my back and then around under my boobs, tied it in the front in the middle, so it was tight and then pulled the tie over the top of the black skirt so it pulled it down to the level of the white part, sort of cinched i suppose and then tucked it in and it stays okay.

i hope that helps, i really don't know how else to explain it
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / velvet skirt into semi-formal dress NOW WITH TUT. on: December 03, 2005 12:27:11 AM
i had just a plain black velvet skirt with elastic that was wearing out, and i needed a dress for a winter dance. soooo

i hitched the skirt up and then took a strip of white cotton and wrapped it around, tied it in the front and pulled it through the middle of my boobs for the shape of the top. sewed that on.. then i sewed a bra into it, well sort of, but just at the end of the front straps, so then i had straps and they match alright, becuase both are black. it worked out alright, and no one will notice, so allll's good.

here it is. god knows what my face was thinking when i took this. umm so just ignore that part

i absolutely love balloon-esque skirts like these (i dont know the proper name)
but i've never seen a pattern for them or really have any idea how to go about making one.

anyone have any ideas or have seen a pattern? i would love to make a formal dress with a skirt like this.

thanks so much!!
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Making your own halloween costume-along.. on: October 15, 2005 07:11:32 PM
i'm making my own costume too. well, actually, five of them.

my friends and i are going to be the von trapp family kids. i know there's seven of them but there's only five of us.

i'm making three dresses and two pairs of liederhosen. the only thing i've used a pattern for was for the shorts, and i'm just attaching overall-type fronts to those.

i'll definitely post pictures when i'm done. i am so excited. i've finished my dress and a pair of liederhosen already, but i dont have pictures yet, but things are turning out well!!!!

the fabric i found is sort of a paisley print in gold-ish green on an off-white background. it's SO CLOSE to the actual fabric i was astounded. i found it on fabric.com and bought the whole 15 yards (I HAVE SO MUCH LEFT but i just didnt know how much i would need)
