1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2 Dresses From Vintage Patterns on: February 19, 2011 08:22:35 PM

Both were made from sheets.  The blue dress I dyed.  I was hoping for something a little more robins egg, but I like the teal.  I tried to go back around the neck facing on the blue dress with my serger, and ruined it!  You can't see it well in the picture but I took a pretty good chunk off of it.  Oh well, ya gotta learn somehow.

Brilliant!  You have a good eye, whenever I see ugly black and wood chandeliers I just think ,"ew."

When you melted the wax in the oven, what temp did you heat the oven to?
I heated the oven to the lowest possible setting, which I think is 180 on my mine.  It took around 10 minutes for the little ones and 15-20 for the biggest one I had which was almost half full.   If you put it to high it gets smoky and stinky and your candles will smell like melted crayons.

I burn candles all the time and always have those ugly burnt up leftover jars sitting around.  The crafty packrat in me wouldn't let me just throw them away after they wouldn't light anymore.

So I bought a pack of wicks, which were super cheap, $2.oo for 1o.  Melted the candles in the oven, cleaned out the jars and decoupaged the outside.  Just some random stuff I found in Juxtapoz.

Anchored the wick with a dab of hot glue, poured wax in jar.  Added some simmering oil I had laying around.
Let cool, and voila.  And I get to recycle the unused jars that I cleaned out.

These were kind of my testers, so they don't look that great but I think the idea has tons of potential.

Those are so bad @ss!  Is the top elastic?  And are the pockets still on?

Brilliant!  I am usually anti-sequin, but these are perfect the perfect addition.  Totally looks like something I would see at Express.

Brilliant!  Using a curtain fabric is genius, as is the turpentine transfer technique.

Great fabric choice!  The pictures are awesome on so many levels.  Hoora

Cute ratty! I heard they are born with fur and then lose it, is that true?

Some are born naked, and others have very thin fur that falls out/grows back in random patches.  I've also had one that only had fur down the middle of its face.  Either way, I swear hairless rats are more intelligent than furry rats.

Brilliant!  I love doing stuff with doll heads/faces...it's instant creepy. This one kinda reminds me of Michael Myers.
