11  Dress design help in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by raining_dreams on: September 23, 2006 11:18:38 AM
 Normally I know exactly what to make with a certain piece of fabric, but this time I do not know! It's really weird becuase I usually have like a million designs I have drawn up, but this fabric is not working for me :/
 So... my question is this: What style of dress should I make with this:

 I seriously have about nine yards of it from the thrift store.
 MY first idea was a shift dress, kind of sixties style, but I don't know what style of shift dress this type of print would look good on (yes, there are many different styles of shift dress Wink), but then I get indecisive.
 What I am hoping is that all of you lovely Craftsters can give me some pictures as to what would look nice. Just to let you know, it is almost fall here and so I want something with sleeves, can be worn year round, or looks cute layered. Also, maybe something babydoll style??
 I want to be a designer when I'm older and I can't even think of what to do with this  Embarrassed

12  Finding fabric in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by raining_dreams on: September 18, 2006 04:25:47 PM
 I looked at both Jo-Ann's and Hancocks for this fabric:

 I need to find a thick winter jacket/woolen type of a material for it. I saw a very small red and black version, but it needs to be large.
 Any color that has a black square constrast is great! I would prefer white, but I have not had much luck  Undecided
 If you know af any websites or possibly chain stores that would sell the fabric, I would love it if you shared  Smiley

13  Yet another 60's style mini-dress: STRIPES! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by raining_dreams on: September 14, 2006 06:24:12 PM
 I think I may be a tiny bit obsessed with this style of tops  Cheesy
 Again made from scratch, this one is a little bit simpler than the last. It has a contrast stripe crewneck, 3/4 length sleeves, and an awesome striped knit fabric.

 (that tiny bump is my bra strap getting all wonky  Tongue)

 So, comments/suggestions?

 Also, I forgot to mention this on the last one: I honestly DO NOT care if you copy my designs, but onyl for your perosnal use please! I do sell my clothing, and I would really appreciate it if you would not copy to sell in your store. Thanks   Smiley

14  Striped mini-dress/tunic with yoke in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by raining_dreams on: September 13, 2006 06:11:44 PM
 I am going to apologize before hand for the not so great/lack-of pictures. I had to take them quickly, and I haven't been feeling so hot as of late  Roll Eyes
 Anyway, it started out like this:

 (Size 2X which made me look like a bit of a cow.)

 After about 45 minutes I had this:

 (The camera does not take well to small repeated patterns, and I look like I have big hips. woohoo!)

 And one more just for fun  Wink:

 In a normal picture, this would look more like a mini-dress, tunic. It is another 60's inspired piece.

15  60's inspired jersey mini-dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by raining_dreams on: September 11, 2006 12:55:15 PM
 My very first, from scratch knit item! I designed this after looking through old fashion magazines from the 60's. It is a heather grey mini-dress/tunic, with a boatneck collar and a ruffled yoke. I made it out of a cotton blend jersey.

yoke detail:

 Comments, critiques?
  *edit* This item is something I designed and created to sell. Please do not copy it to sell in your own store! Thanks  Smiley

16  Red Polka dot babydoll dress *NOW WITH TUTE!!* in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by raining_dreams on: September 05, 2006 01:30:34 PM
I made another dress from the pattern I designed.




 I was very busy while making this, so the tutorial is still not ready. I am SO sorry to everyone who is waiting! I hope to have one ready my the weekend Smiley
 So, comments, ciriticism? Please be brutally honest everyone!! I have been very un-satisfied with every project lately, and I need a little feedback on what I can improve  Smiley

*edit* I am so sorry for the wait for a tutorial! I finally got it done. I know it isn't all that great, but it really is the best I cna do right now  Undecided

 Also, the computer messed it up a little as far as sizing and it moved the text around. Crap.. anyway, I hope you can still read it  Roll Eyes

17  Making a crew-neck shirt in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by raining_dreams on: September 04, 2006 12:13:22 PM
 I am modifying an extra-large woman's shirt, into a long tunic type shirt for myself. It has a high neckline, but I would like to modify it to look like this:

 Does anyone know of any tutorials, or have any tips for me? I would really like to have an idea of what I am doing before I start! Also, can I use the excess side pieces for the neckline band? Is there another fabric I must use?

18  Red Dots and Cherries in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by raining_dreams on: August 30, 2006 11:51:43 AM

 Yet another polka dot purse with a bow. I really like the shape of these purses. The top has a zip closure, and there is a small slit/coin pocket on the inside. The back is plain.

19  Re: simple but amazing dress design wanted!! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by raining_dreams on: August 22, 2006 02:13:10 PM
 That is amazing dress! I would say go with something like that.
 Here are some other ideas:

 Those are both pictures I found on E-bay. I don't have anything else right now, but good luck!

20  Up, Up and Away in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by raining_dreams on: August 21, 2006 02:38:28 PM
 I posted this in the challenge section, but I though I would psot it here as well Smiley
 It is a pale blue fabric with white cloud appliques and a red airplane applique. The abg has a red polka dot lining (hooray!  Cheesy) and red piping along the flap and top of the bag.


 There is a large zipper pocket, a cell phone pocket, and a large-ish misc. pocket.
 Detail. The windows on the plane are stenciled on with acrylic and textile medium.
