the sash definitely kept the style asian!
> You're making me realize that "asiatic" is not an english word. Sorry about that. Actually, english is not my mother tongue Wink

Thanks for all the compliment ! Make me want to use my sewing machine more Smiley
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Altered monsoon dress on: February 21, 2010 05:51:28 AM
I found a monsoon dress for 5 euros in a german thriftstore. The fabric was beautilful, and the construction was interesting... But the fit in the bust / sleeve area was terribly WRONG.

BEFORE  Roll Eyes

After much cutting, sewing, undoing, redoing, and creating a sash (intended to emphasize the asiatic style of the dress), it became this :
(I couldn't resist to show you the alps in background  Wink)

Bonus side view

The dress got shorter in the process, I hope I didn't destroy the "silhouette". The sash is based on this tutorial http://www.petitcitron.com/index.php/Accessoires/Ceinture-obi.html just a rectangle with strings, nothing sophisticated !
Hope you like it !

I don't usually make jewels... but well recently, I fell in love with knitted radishes and decided to make myself a necklace.

Hope you like it  Kiss

I followed this tutorial : http://www.mediatinker.com/blog/archives/cat_tutorials.html
to make those thai pants :

Very easy to sew. Very confortable Smiley and I guess... it could even fit a very pregnant woman Wink
Not so easy to take a good picture of it  Undecided

Here is a crocheted hat made from the 15 january 1934 "penelope" (a french magazine, I had laying around ^^) :

The process is quite easy. Start crocheting a rectangle in treble stitch : 28 stitches width x 41 rows = 13 cm x 44 cm (44cm or more accurate your actual head size). And another one still in treble stich : 8 stitches width : 4 cm x 25 cm long.

EDIT : crochet size : 3,5

Close the biggest rectangle in sewing one side :

Close the top edge of that tube (gather a little bit) :

Add the small rectangle at the top (gather a little bit also). It's finished !
