i love this!!! is the purpley stuff just lace?

Thank you! Yes, the purple is lace. I was kind of worried it wouldn't quite match with the plaid, but I have very low standards for coordination...

Thanks, everyone! I really appreciate the kind words!
Was the plain bust part originally the waistband of the skirt, or did you add that too? And what do you mean by 'twisting the top part into submission'?
Your questions are completely valid - I am a master of tortured English and can't bring myself to write simple sentences.  Wink The blue top part was originally there. I seamed it together so it fit my chest, then instead of cutting off the excess I twisted it into a flower shape and sewed the plain blue button in the middle.

I know, hearts are a terribly original theme. Meh. 
This was such a simple recon I ought to be ashamed posting it. It was a very long skirt several sizes too large. I just gathered the excess in the middle, twisted the top part into submission, then added a button and (nearly matching) straps.

It's oh-so-summery and is clamoring to be worn every day. I have to politely refuse. Thanks for looking!

Excellent title.  Cheesy    I'm making a covering for my sister's huge dog (a few months too late...), and this shape and style looks perfect.  I hope you don't mind if I borrow it!

This is my first time posting pictures, so I'm positive I'll do something wrong...So apologies first off!

This is the dress I reconned for my college graduation the night before the ceremony, a trend that characterized my entire college career. Now pictures! (Hopefully)
Before - one sleeve had already been sacrificed:


Close-up of bodice (but not too close, I am a sloppy sewer.)

It is made of some awful polyester-like material, but luckily quite stretchy as I realized after completing the upper part that I apparently forgot I have breasts... I meant to reattach the sleeves, as well, but lack of time and rare foresight made me reconsider polyester sleeves under a nylon gown in an 800 degree room for 6 hours. Approximately. Thanks for looking!

Pics should be working now - sorry! I am what appears to be a bonehead. Thanks for the heads up, WIPs! !

Thanks, guys! I saw an ad for this place while I was at work the other day and I think I actually squealed out loud...I've been putting off going until after finals, but now I am giving myself full knitting privileges!

This looks so good! I was just thinking of doing something similar, as the last album cover is pretty much a ready-made stencil...Cheesy  You're very patient to deal with all those little lines!
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: i-cord on: March 14, 2007 01:42:54 PM
You can also use regular needles, just slide all the stitches to the other needle after finishing a row. I know that's not a very good explanation; there is a great video tutorial on knittinghelp.com. For some reason it took me forever to learn how to make i-cord; I thought I must truly be an idiot!  But I think it's just because I could not comprehend how someone could think this is how to knit...
