I finished the skirt.
I didnt have enough fabric so it looks a bit weird when i wear it but in all i really like it.

wikked, was just wondering how you did the sleeves really...

thanks a heap for that, lauren Smiley

I really wanted to do the kind of sleeves that dont close all the way, so i tried my best and that's how they turned out. I made a really quick drawing:

That's basicly the form of the sleeves.
Cut and sew them so they dont really close.
Cut the binding, fold it in half and sew with zig-zag or overlock, remember to streach the binding while sewing .. and that's it!
Feel free to ask my anything (i'm not good at tutorials lol).

13  Circles blue and teal top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ziabox on: August 21, 2006 10:38:46 PM
I made this simple top with the same fabric as this dress. Nothing out of the ordinary (i really should start taking more risks lol because i *love* all the wonderful pieces you all make).
So, uhm, here it is:

14  teal dress, it's too plain, dont know what to do.! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ziabox on: August 18, 2006 06:39:39 PM
I made this dress today, with the idea of a 'summer' dress, end of summer that is, and something i could still use in the fall. I wanted it with thin straps and flowy.
I really liked how it turned out but it's way too plain and simple. It kind of looks like something i could sleep in.
What i'm thinking is that it looks a lot better with a belt but i dont want to have to wear a belt every time i use it, also, now that i tried it on i feel the fabric is a bit thinner that what i thought and makes me think about wearing it alone.

Here it is:

Without the belt..

One thing i can do is silk screen something on.
Or i can sew a black waist band where the belt is.
(sorry the pics arent so great, it's the best i can do alone lol)
arrgh! i dont know .....

any ideas?
what do you all think?

15  Circles and dots blue & blue dress !! Now with tutorial in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ziabox on: August 07, 2006 07:00:19 PM
Finally, finally, finally!
I'm so exited that i finished my first summer dress! I really needed one and the ones i started, for some reason, i never finished them (didnt like them, weren't what i wanted, blah) lol, but this one i did like, i actually love it so much. When i saw the fabric, i wasnt so sure but i went ahead and bought it because it was the only one i liked that was light and streachy and cheap, it was $1.30 USD/ metter.
I started it this morning and worked on it on and off all day. It's a bit hard to sew when there's a little boy pulling on your leg hehehehe.

Here's the dress:

i'm still not sure if it fits my figure or makes me look weird.

sorry the pictures are so crappy, there's no one to take them and these two are the best of the bunch.

Here's a close up of the fabric (i think this one's the best pic Cheesy):

What do you think?


This is my first tutorial so bear with me  Cheesy

These are the pieces you will need:

-Skirt Length
-Top dress length, to decide where to put the waist band (mine's about 15 in. from shoulder to waist)

To dut the skirt part just fold your fabric in half and measure half of your waist in a corner, and the length as you would a regular circle skirt.

The waist band is about 2.5 in.

1. Once you have your pieces cut, sew the top parts, back and both fronts (marked in red), first neck to shoulder and then attatch the sleeves but dont close them, yet.

2. Sew together the back with the wrap parts (marked in green).   
   Attatch the neckline band:  fold it in half and while you sew it streach it a little.
   Nos sew the waist ban to the top part of the dress.  I found it easier to sew the wrap parts (or pin them) how i wanted them before sewing the waist band.

3. Sew the skirt to the waist band (in pink) and close the waist band and skirt together (orange)

Hem the skirt if the fabric needs it, and sew the sleeve bands to the sleeves gathering the sleeves a little (or a lot) to create puffiness (also streach the bands while sewing).

And ta da! you have a wonderful summer dress! (or all year round dress depending on the color and fabric!)

16  This is just a test.... but what do you think? in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by ziabox on: July 21, 2006 04:56:29 PM
I made this yesterday as a test of a 2 ink design. I'm still not sure what color t-shirts to use and what inks to go with, but i really liked how this came out, although i want to make it wearable for both guys and girls. so maybe pink wouldnt be so good lol

18  dressy black top (that i love!!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ziabox on: July 17, 2006 08:56:21 AM
i made this top a few nights ago, i was going to post it last night but the lights went out so.....
i made it from the fabric left from the 'infinity' dress. I didnt make a pattern, i wish i would've because i had to cut a sleve twice (it was too small hehe), anyway, when i finished it, i just love it. here are some pics.

19  Re: quickie dress that anybody can make in Clothing Sewalongs by ziabox on: July 13, 2006 01:33:34 PM
onecraftybitch- i had to read the instruction over and over too see if i was doing ti right hehehe.  I think rostitchery's picture explains the waist band very well .. here's the link http://rowena.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/infinity_dress_how_to_serge_close_up_1.jpg, i hope she doesnt mind.

and i took some pics (not the best sorry) to see if they could help you

you sew the straps in between the skirt and the band, the band is folded in half.  hope this makes any sense.

ok this is my version of the dress.
i had to read the instructions step by step, i didnt want to mess it up.

as soon as i started too see al the beautiful dresses all of you ladies made, i wanted to make one also. so today i got this great fabric ( i didnt know what color to choose so i ended up with black. i want to make it in a summery color but i dont know which, any ideas?) anyway... i made it and it only took me an hour, maybe less.

here it is.. i will get better pics as soon as i can get my boyfriend to take them.

thank you rostitchery for the tutorial!!
