15  grad dress became grad skirt :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by dishwasher182 on: May 01, 2009 03:59:11 PM

so i had originally made a dress from this fabric... and i didn't like it at all.. the arm holes were too small and the top didn't fit right... and i had no patience to fix it..

luckily, i had enough fabric to make a skirt... Smiley i cut it on the bias so it would have some movement too it..

i finished the top with fold over elastic...

i like it a lot better than the dress Smiley

i graduate in two weeks from today!! so excited!

17  Awesome Messenger Bag (major pics!) Plus TUTORIAL :) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dishwasher182 on: April 18, 2009 04:08:50 PM
So i have been working on this design for just a simple but big messenger style bag for quite a while now... i even made a muslin one before hand to test out the design...  I've used a bunch of tutorials from craftster to make the zippered pockets, and the zip top, and the adjustable strap... and made my own directions for this bag Smiley

The outside is duck cloth--interfaced with fusible fleece and some med. weight interfacing, and the inner cotton fabric just has fusible fleece.

The size is about 16 1/2" wide, 11 1/2" tall, and 4" deep.

Here are the pics: let me know what you think!

Tutorial Time Smiley

Alright so i had made some notes while making a practice bag--i scanned them and added some notes as well as some pics i took...

I didn't go into too much detail--as long as you understand how to make a basic bag you'll be fine with this!  

I used these tutorials to help me :

zipper pocket tute:
adjustable strap tute: http://nicolemdesign.blogspot.com/2008/08/adjustable-strap-tutorial.html
zip top flaps idea from this tute: http://pinoyinoz.blogspot.com/2008/07/tutorial-messenger-bag-with-zip-top.html

I tried to make it as clear as i could without going into too much detail..... any questions just ask!

Oh and if make one please post it i want to see it Smiley

18  graduation dress help wanted! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by dishwasher182 on: April 12, 2009 01:48:59 PM
So i got the last two yards of this polyester fabric at joanns the other day and i was thinking about using it to make a dress for my up coming graduation!

i'm having a hard time finding a cute pattern for it though... and one that involves two yards or less!

any ideas!?

what about this pattern--i'm thinking the sleeveless one?

19  what do you think about this messenger bag? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by dishwasher182 on: April 05, 2009 03:14:51 PM
So i'm going to be making a 'real' messenger bag, but this time i wanted to plan ahead and make it perfect. I practiced and drew up plans/measurements and everything and made it out of muslin.  I didn't use any interfacing on it, so its pretty floppy... but i just wanted to make sure the size and everything worked well together before using good fabric/interfacing. I also 'drew' in where inside zipper pockets and snaps would be.   The final dimensions come to be about 16.5"x11.5x4".

So i was wondering if i should use really stiff interfacing, OR use not as stiff interfacing, and use polyester boning on the seams to help hold it up  without it being really stiff.... Huh

i'd appreciate any advice or thoughts on it? Smiley

20  t shirt to tank top :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by dishwasher182 on: February 15, 2009 05:20:04 PM
Sooo this was a mens XL t shirt, which i then chopped up to make this tank top Smiley

I basically cut a band for the top, gathered it in the middle, then sewed another band on the bottom... then i had to add some elastic in the middle so it fit better...then attached it to another piece for the rest of the top. easy Smiley the straps i kind of copied from a store bought shirt... they are 1 inch elastic and you make the straps to go over the elastic, but a little longer so it bunches up!

what do you all think?
