1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First sewing project: arm warmers! on: January 04, 2007 09:00:44 PM
I just rented a sewing machine and I wanted to start small, so I decided to make arm warmers. I used a black cotton rib knit, and I made a pattern from a pair of arm warmers that I had.

Any comments or criticism would be welcome! Thanks for looking.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Any tips/patterns for making a kimono dress? on: December 28, 2006 05:09:59 PM
I'd really like a kimono-sleeved dress made out of jersey, sort of like (or exactly like) the Paul & Joe for Target one (http://www.fashionologie.com/fashionologie/2006/06/paul_and_joe_an.html)--does anyone have any ideas for how to make the sleeves, or any patterns for it? I'm not very experienced at sewing (at all), so anything easy would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Amorphous Earring Blobs on: May 17, 2006 10:38:57 PM
I needed to do something with my hands tonight, but I didn't really have a design in mind, so these sort of created themselves:

Sorry about the crappy picture quality, but you get the idea. Opinions? I think I'm actually pretty happy with them; I'm actually going to post about them in my fashion blog (http://whatiwore.blogspot.com), I'm sure I can figure out a way to wear them.

Thanks for looking!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / First post! Two pairs of earrings on: May 11, 2006 09:25:53 PM
It's study week at my school, and I needed to do something that involved my hands rather than my brain this afternoon, so I made two pairs of earrings. The first pair (blue pair), I just kind of made up as I went a long, but the second pair (silver pair) was made to go with a dress that I wore to go out tonight.

Feedback is always appreciated! You can see the silver earrings against the dress that they were made to match on my blog. http://whatiwore.blogpsot.com Thanks for looking!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Printing on tees and tanks on: March 29, 2006 03:28:16 PM
I'm new to this, so I hope that this is the correct place to post this, but I was wondering about good ways to print designs on t-shirts and tanks. I'm an artist (in progress--I'm not brilliant), and rather than stencil or screenprint, I'd really like to put my designs directly on clothes for the sake of texture and the nature of the materials, but is there are good way to do this? For example, if I painted a design on with an inkwash, would if last if I just dry-cleaned the clothing item? I know that some designer does designs with permanent marker on his t-shirts, and gets something like $150, so that form of ink must have some staying power, right? What about acrylic paint? If I used a watered-down acrylic, would it go well on a cotton top, and would it stay through washing?

I have no idea about any of this, so if anyone has any experience with it, I'd greatly greatly appreciate it. Thanks Smiley
