1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / French mini dress with giant white collar on: May 28, 2008 12:26:07 AM
Now I just need to go to France. See also the dress Max made. Max is FANTASTIC. go comment.

It's a simple A-line dress with puffed sleeves, white cuffs and a ridiculously large collar, all made from a bunch of patterns.

Black drill and a white sheet make up the dress, and a blue zip, because we had no black ones.

I wore it to school today, it was a bit cold. because i refused to wear a jacket. It's not supposed to be so cold and overcast in Brisbane in the middle of Autumn. Even though it should be getting cold, the day I want to wear a dress it's extra cold.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Striped dress - !!It's so Stripy it causes Epilepsy... on: May 16, 2008 05:30:57 AM
I love dresses. and Sewing without patterns. So i combined my loves into one work of... sewing goodness.
I went on an Epic bus adventure to Spotlight for fabric for pants for my friend. and also tulle for tutus.
And i came away with this striped stuff which I've seen and loved and it was like $4 a meter so I had to have it.
I kind of measured across the boobs and made up where to put darts and gathered in the middle.
Added a black edge. + waistband to define..
Aaaand straps.
The back has elastic at the top. and pleats when it attatches to the waist band. It has a short side zipper in navy, because i couldn't find black.

Ummm... And it's all serged and hemmed good.

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cutest Kitteh in the land on: May 04, 2008 08:21:48 PM
I made this kitteh for a birthday present. But it turned out way too cute to give away.
My friend was mildly offended when i wasn't making him anything for his birthday. I laughed at him. But i made him this, and i was like  "you can't have it.. it's too cute" then i cried.
Look how cute he is.

He's made out of black stretchknit, and stuffed with old pillow stuffing.
It tooklike... 15 minutes.
His head s too big for him to sit up unassisted. That was probably a mean thing to do. Butstill. so cute.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / B-Grade Horror Hoodies ((A Rachikus + Sindoll Epic Adventure))((LOTS OF PICS!)) on: April 28, 2008 11:11:09 PM

So one night, at 11.30pm, Max + I decided to sew something epic.

She had a tonne of the most ugliest coloured stretchknits you could ever imagine, and didn't know what to do with them all. Somehow we nutted out the most awesomest idea since they invented the wheel! ((ok maybe not That Awesome, but it was Epic))

We'd make hoodies that looked like Mummy shrouds ((Inspired by b-grade horror films + one of our favourite bands songs "The Mummy's Shroud" -By the Bloodsucking Zombies from Outer Space))

Five hours later ((YES THATS RIGHT! We didn't finish until way past 4am)), and much serging, we finally came up with THESE ((We thought taking photos under the hosue would be scary))

((Oh yeh that's a little mummy doll Max made for her friend. He's wrapped in bandages))

We cut the ugly fabrics into strips ((we only had one pair of good scissors)) Then serged them ito what seemed like endless lengths of fabric. We were hyper on coca cola + made up stupid jokes. Really stupid. They're not even funny if I tell them to you now. Anyway. They are pretty similar, except hers is lined in this horrid creepy medical-bandage fabric ((Which she has plans for leggings with)) and I lined mine half with leopard print and half with ugly fabric. I also have an ipod pocket on my sleeve Cheesy

Anyway, we were out the front taking a picture, and this man for Origin Energy asked if we were twins.... wow... so not.

Here's some W.I.P. shots we got Betty California to take::

The beginnings... ugly fabric.

A shirt... sort of..

Keep on keepin' on.

Which one is the front?!!??!??!  Shocked

((Piles of two))

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Rad dress of Plaid. on: April 27, 2008 07:56:08 PM

New dress!
I made it for my Prom afterparty.
Which was hectic.
But i wore it the other night.
I love it a bit.

Oh right, I haven't done the craftster thing for ages.
I'll tell you how i made it, eh?
So, i used my favourite pattern.
The simplicity one from the 70's.
Which i use in a bunch of variations for a lot of the things i make.

And then just cut it off around the hip and added soem pleatedlyfullyness.
And lace, and Strapping for the halter strap, and cotton tape around above the pleats.
And a red zip.
Because you need to get in and out.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Prom dress with purple and Lace and Velvet and pictures! on: November 17, 2007 02:32:38 AM
The Kepnock SHS prom was last night, Friday the 16th of November.
Unlike almost everyone else, I didn't get hair extensions. [ha ha ha]
Me and My friend who I arrived with tried to conince the Year 11's who were running the announcements that we were the Veronicas. But they woulnd't say it. If you don't know who The Veronicas are, look it up. They're from australia.

Ok, so Arrivals, big thing for everyone, but I didn't care and It started raining just as we got there. and they had these giant unmbrellas and it was fun. I'll find a picture of this later.

Rachel Pre-prom.

Thats us and our car. It was Manly purple. Oh yeah.

This is the Rachel and Ashley are the veronicas pose.
I look superly Fat.

This is the front side of my dress. Which I constructed myself, from Satin, Lace, 2 colours of tulle and a bunch of boning and Some velvet ribbon. It was quite lovely.
The boning was stabbing me for most of the night. And it was fun to spin in. When We did our circle dancing and we had to dance with everyone.

Back of the dress

Ok, right, I stole some of the pictures from my friend mikey, most of them are my own.

Most people liked my dress.

Look and laugh at my loserness.

Me and best friend.

7  COOKING / Dessert / Popcorn? on: October 19, 2007 11:30:32 PM
I was wondering, how everyone likes their popcorn.
I personally like to be particularly unhealthy and coat it in butter and icing sugar.
It tastes good.
but yeah.
Just wondering.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / black and spotted super sash dress on: July 06, 2007 11:16:08 PM
This dress, i made in an afternoon using Simplicity 6327 from 1974.

It has a fake black and white spotted sash that i sewed on the front and added ties in the side seams that match up.
and then put spotness around the top.
It's pretty schmick.

my description makes little to no sense. just look at the pictures, k.

[don't laugh at my socks. I'm loosening up my new docs.]

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Black hoodie with purple velvettyness. on: June 15, 2007 09:50:17 PM
Well since my personal country is going into the winter months. [ok winter started 16 days ago] I got cold and decided i needed a hoodie. something i didn't posess.

ok i posess many. just not a black one.
ok i have a black one.  Uncle Matt gave it to me. [he's in a band, its a bit of merch, because we're best friends, he's not really my uncle, but i also call  his girlfriend aunt erinn Cheesy he's just  little old. he's 23 not really that old. but we only see each other twice a year(when his band decides they need t come to bundy). um go check out his band, they're very good. from brisbane. www.myspace.com/repeatoffendermusic] but he said i have to share with Ashley and Frank because he could only give one to me and they wanted them too.
so like frank has it and not me.
But now i do have a black hoodie, and mines like totally cool.
errr. its from this nice thick fleecy fabric. it claims to be cotton rich. and it was rather expensive and i bought quite a lot.  tee hee. and the zipper is plain rad.
and theres purple panne velvet inside the hood and pockets.

I cut bit out of the sides because i wanted inseam pockets, but i didn't want panels. and i didn't want a kanga pocket.

it was my first attempt at a bunch of stuff but it turned out pretty well. i think.

the photos are kinda bad and boring.
yeah so.
whaddaya think?

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Plaid Pleaty short skirty-ness Ruckus Style on: June 01, 2007 10:45:11 PM
Ho hum. I made a skirt. Its the same fabric as some top i made a while back.
my mum thinks its short. i think i'm brilliant because i made the pleats and the yoke longer at the back so it covers my butt.
oh yeah.

and again...
