1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Prisoner of Your Luuurve [VD Goodness] on: February 16, 2007 11:54:35 PM
hah, VD. I used Simplicity 4070 (which I bought on wishelle's recommendation) and some great fabric I got at a great fabric store the last time I was in San Francisco. I made it for my Valentine's Day dance which I just got home from.

Strike a pose.

From the front.

The bubble skirt.

Gratuitous yet gratifying boob shot.

Fully lined top.

and bottom.

That's all. Feed back would be fantastic.

That's right, somebody paid for me to sew them something, oh yeah.

Well, technically they paid me in fake diamonds. But bling is bling is bling.

I used NEW LOOK 6615 for the bodice

I had to pin it to show proper fit which would account for some of the awkward bunching. Her chest is significantly larger than my own.

It's a little costume-y for my taste, but hey. It's her New Years Eve Dress. Add some sparkles and a coat and this baby is good to go

A detail/boobie shot, the tie slipped a little...but look how nice the neckline is! All even and straight and good.

I'm so proud

I love the feed back dontcha know?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pea Coat-An Adventure in Crafting on: December 21, 2006 10:44:48 PM
The most complicated and frustrating project ever

I used Simplicity 4403 (let it be known that Simplicity is freaking useless when it comes to finishing, and that mothers are the best sort of informants in that regard.)

The coat is fully lined, with snap closures.

It normally doesn't pull like that, but it hiked up as I rushed to get into the frame in time-damn timers.

zee buttonssss

The full lining of death, doom, destruction, and world hunger.

I tested it out on a recent trip to San Francisco, it kept me toasty...but only because of the four layers underneath. I'm from San Diego, and anything under 65 degrees in unbearable

Sup cuties?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Shiny Polkadot For the Win on: December 15, 2006 10:29:40 PM
This was originally supposed to be my Winter Formal dress, I wound up not going so it became my work's Christmas Party Dress.

All time best fabric ever. For real. I bought it the last time I was in San Francisco and I'm going back up on Monday for some more amazingness.

The Dress

How I wore it

I drafted my own pattern for this, there is a fully functioning zipper in the back, and a velvet ribbon tie for the cute factor.

So excited for break, because of all the sewing time. I'm also doing my first two commissions over break!

I've been going to quite a few parties this month (including my own) and any social gathering is an excuse to cut up another bedsheet to make a dress.

The theme for this party was black and white

Full length dress+catbutt


At this party I frolicked in a fountain. It was cold. But photo worthy

I busted this dress out in like in hour from two modified patterns, let me know what you think
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Happy Birthday Paisley Party Dress. Fabulous Tutorial Added on: October 08, 2006 07:54:34 PM
Sorry for the single picture, this is made out of one yard of a paisley fabric I couldn't resist, and black suiting.

It's actually one of the easiest things I've ever sewed and I love it!
It's short enough that I have to wear it with tights for a mod look and I can also wear it as a shirt over a pair of skinny jeans as well. The black band in the front ties in the back for some interesting detail

I've been really into Twiggy lately, can you tell?

Sorry for the all around...badness


7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Making gold look aged on: October 08, 2006 12:06:49 PM
I have several bright shiny gold rings, any idea how to make it look "aged"?

As in darker and not shiny?

Thanks for you help!
