Cheesy very nice, i love epaulets! were these pictures before of after you added panels?

yea so do i Cheesy this was after i added them, it's not noticeable i think because it's black fabric. thank goodness for that.

Hey all, I forgot to post this! And it's way overdue since I made it all the way back in February. Roll Eyes This was for my boyfriend's 21st birthday, among other little presents like handmade card, brownies, graphic novels, etc. It's made out of lightweight jersey, with kangaroo pockets, epaulets and zipper down the front. I winged it mostly, because I've made hoodies before and I know the general pattern of one. However, I made it too small the first time round, which was really embarrassing; I ended up having to make new sleeves and add panels down the sides. It turned out alright though as you can see, I'm really happy with it! Though I wish jersey was easier to sew, and that zips could stay down flat like they're meant to. Grrr. Anyway, on to the pictures:

Sorry for the blurriness in some of these.

Thanks for looking guys! Comments welcome Smiley

aww.. that's super cute! did you use a pattern?

That's really cute. The print is so bold and daring, and you pull it off really well.
Since critique is welcome, one thought I had was that if you use a facing for the top of the dress instead of folding your raw edges under you could eliminate the need for topstitching which would give the top a very smooth appearance (if you want that, that is).
Anyway, this is a beautiful dress, and it fits you perfectly. Brava!

thank you! that's a good idea, i'll try it next time Smiley curved seams are such a bitch to hem.

Hi all! Been awhile since I posted. Hope you guys are well! Here's what I made out of some Spotlight fabric Smiley This dress reminds me of Bree from Desperate Housewives. It's stretch sateen if I remember right, and I am a complete sucker for florals of any kind so I had to get it. Here's an action shot and a couple closeups:

(Sorry for the crappy Photobooth pictures below, I forgot to charge my camera)

Cheers all! Concrit much appreciated Cheesy

thanks so much everybody! please do make one for yourselves out of the snuggliest, softest jersey you can find, it's like wearing a blanket everywhere you go Smiley i refuse to take mine off. haha. anyway it's dead easy, picture a large square or rectangle (depends on your preferred length) folded over. the middle of the fold is where you make a hole for your head and sew your hood on. cut it down the middle for a zip or button closure. then add pockets! you can optionally add seams a few inches from either side of the zip down to the hem, so it's not so drafty.

please post pictures if you're attempting one, i'd love to see them Cheesy

Hey all Smiley Long time no post. Anyway here's what I've been up to - a drape cape with hood, pockets and epaulets! Made from cream jersey that's such a bitch to sew but is oh-so-soft. It's pretty easy to make one, it's basically a rectangle folded over, with a hood attached. I added details to jazz it up a little. Ignore my tired face and general disheveledness, these pictures were taken when I got home.

What d'you guys think?  Cheesy

Cheers and happy new year!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / high waisted skirt and beach dress! :) on: December 11, 2008 07:17:55 AM
Hi all, ohmygod has it been a looong time or what? Tongue Anyway, this is what I've made so far. Nothing complicated, a high waist skirt with pockets for my online store that me and my friends hope to launch very soon. Fingers crossed that it'll be a success! This particular piece is linen if I remember right, and was a pleasure to sew because it's very sturdy. That sliver of grey in the 2nd pic is the pocket lining.

And this is a satin dress I made for a beach party this Saturday that I'm extremely excited about, it's once a year and it's HUGE - we're talking about the hugest in Asia. So I plan to look my best! It's a babydoll style dress with a sash, and is so unbelievably comfortable I never want to take it off. Sorry for the shitty Macbook photos Undecided

What do you girls think?
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / mini halloween post! :) on: November 01, 2008 11:08:54 AM
Hey guys, I'm bored so I'm gonna make a post about Halloween. I didn't make my whole outfit, but I did make my friend's. Here it is:

Made from fake suede, it's a simple cap sleeve dress with fringe that kept fraying. Urgh. It still looks pretty good though, especially on her Smiley

As for me, only my white shirt was handmade, but I just wanted to show you guys my outfit anyway! Cheers and show me yours too Cheesy

Beautiful dress - what a great fabric find!  Do you have a special occasion to wear the dress to, or is it a "just because" dress?  It definitely deserves to be shown off - it is lovely and you look great in it too!

thankss! well it's more of a 'just because', my friend and i were fabric shopping and we stumbled across this print, and i absolutely had to get it Cheesy i wore it out on a lazy friday afternoon, it's very comfortable.
