1  Red and polka dot retro dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sirvinya on: May 28, 2007 11:17:08 AM
Yet another incarnation of the Butterick 4790 dress. But it's such an awsome pattern, does it matter if everyone's already made one? Mine's made with polycotton for both the plain red and the polka dot section. I've used vintage buttons for the hidden one at the back and the 3 red ones at the front. It does look a little rumpled at the top as I'm really short waisted and didn't make any alterations.

2  The vintage Jordy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Sirvinya on: May 15, 2007 02:23:04 PM
First bag ever! I followed the Jordy tutorial but used the variation someone mentioned about leaving the hole in the top of the bag, rather than the bottom corner.

The outer fabric is late 1960's, certainly before 1971 as it had a price tag for shillings still attatched. The lining is some poplin I had left over from a top.

I take mini kits to work to do during my breaks. These are some that I have finished recently:

4  Dress from 1970's green floral sheet UPDATED in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sirvinya on: October 07, 2006 03:36:26 AM
I used New Look 6557 for this. It was so easy!! It's only the third project I have done  Grin.

I'm wearing this tonight as my boyfriend and I are celebrating 2 years together and I suspect he's going to be asking a certain question  Smiley.

Last night, 2 mins after finishing:

This morning when I convinced the boyf to take pictures for me:

I'll be wearing it with that pashmina since it's freezing now!

EDIT: He proposed and I said yes  Grin

5  My new top! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sirvinya on: September 17, 2006 08:37:25 AM
This is the first top I have made! It's New Look #6515, view D. It's made from an old 1970's duvet cover that I got for 4 in a junk shop. Excuse the funny expression on my face, the Sun was right in my eyes.

And laid out on my sewing room floor:

6  Re: this is your brain on fabric... dealing with our addictions in Stitch And BOTCH by Sirvinya on: August 29, 2006 10:55:07 AM
This is my latest stash addition:

I got the whole lot for 7. I should really avoid going to that shop for a while now.

7  But is it ugly enough? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Sirvinya on: August 12, 2006 01:48:33 PM

It's very very shiney, probably polyester.

But I can't decide if I like it enough to make anything with (or even what to make). One minute I think it's so ugly that it's actually fantastic, the next I think it's definitely going on the ebay pile. There's about 2 1/2 metres. Any ideas?

8  I made my first thing! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sirvinya on: August 10, 2006 12:15:00 PM
This is the first thing I have made since I did GCSE textiles 8 years ago!

This is the pattern:

It's New Look #6462 and I did look B. I was really easy. I probably could have got the whole thing done in an afternoon if I had a better attention span. It has a zip which I'm really pleased about since my new machine didn't come with a zipper foot and the machine shop in town has decided not to open at all this week. So I have to thank the random woman I harrassed in Boyes yesterday at the pattern table who told me how to put in a zip without a zipper foot.

This is what I am planning on doing next:

It's New Look 6515 and the fabric is a 1970s duvet cover from a junk shop that cost the grand total of 4. I might even have enough to get a top and skirt out of it.
