Found this lovely Pirates of the Caribbean fabric for $1.50 a yard. made a skirt, it took forever.

The top inside is lined and it has a full black petticoat with black lace on the bottom.

(i have to wear boots and tights, we have three feet of snow on the ground. sorry the picture is so small)

here's the fabric before i cut into it.

demonic johnny and davy jones, was dissapointed that there wasnt a Barbossa.

bonus picture of me eating ice cream with three feet of snow out my door.


(coloradoens stay safe and warm inside)

3  A Fearsome Pirate Yarrrrrr!!! (no stripes or fishnet in sight) in Halloween Costumes by spindle on: October 26, 2006 06:11:37 PM
Yet another pirate costume  Wink. I know there's a million of them out there, but what can I say? I'm a pirate at heart.

Now a major disclaimer:
I had full intentions to make this completely by myself with just a little help with resizing from my mother. But, I came home form school one day and suddenly I had pantaloons! I went to work and when I came back I magically had a pirate vest! Thanks Mom!

(notice the blow up Pirates of the Caribbean dagger)

(I did make the hat)

Thanks for looking, Happy Halloween!

4  Fricken huge Pirate hat (should I change it?) in Halloween Costumes by spindle on: October 24, 2006 08:21:38 PM
Well I'm going as a pirate this year and I decided that I defintiely need a hat. I made one using this wonderful tute http://dunbarnebraska.blogspot.com/2006/10/aaaaaargh-how-to-make-3-point-pirate.html

Sorry I look retarded in EVERY picture.

And I don't even know how I took this picture, I was trying to take a picture of my skirt  Embarrassed

(I  actually decided it was a cool picture Wink)

For the rest of my costume I'll have pantaloons, a pouffy shirt, lace up boot, and a "leather" vest thing.
BUT I can't decide if I should do something else to my hat, it looks kind of. . . lifeless?. . . dumb?

Anywho post any sugguestions.

5  stripped circle/tulle skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spindle on: August 22, 2006 05:26:10 PM
This is a circle skirt I made with a layer of black tulle over it. The hem is really crappy because the tension of the thread was messed up (completely my fault) so it doesn't look very professional. I didn't have enough fabric to make a circle skirt because it was a long rectangle so I cut off the end of the rectangel and sewed it to the side to make it wider. Hope that made sense and if it didn't, that bit of info doesn't really matter anyway.

Anyway. . .

 My legs aren't actually black like the picture makes them look I'm just wearing a pair of lace tights I cut off at the ankle like all those ones you see out there now.

There is no zipper, just a big black button I'm going to sew a tab underneath the opening so it doesn't show my skin. The skirt is kinda short so I probably won't wear it very ofter, I'm just proud of it though.

And yes it's the same fabric I used for my first post  Smiley

Much Love,

6  iPod sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by spindle on: August 22, 2006 05:07:12 PM
Ok, it was the night before my friends birthday and I had no idea what to get her. Then I had a flashback to a conversation we had earlier this year (Me: Why do you always have that clip on your iPod? You never use it.
Her: It just looks naked without it
Me: I should knit you a sweater for it.
Her: You should ha ha ha (she won't actually do it). )
With this inspiration I found one of my scarves I began but never fininshed, hacked it up, and sewed it together and got this.

It's not the prettiest and you can see some of the stiches. If I ever made one again I'm sure it would be a lot better but I am kinda fond of the outright Bill-Cosby-bad-sweater look of it.

7  teal stripped tunic in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spindle on: July 10, 2006 09:16:49 PM
This is one of my first projects, and I must say I'm rather proud of it Smiley I kinda have a thing for stripes, so when I found this fabric I was thrilled.

The black lace at the top is actually a tank top I was just wearing underneath. But I think it looks pretty cool.

The back (obviously).

And my Pirates necklace in celebration of the movie!
(You all had better go see it!!)

NOTE: It took me fricken FOREVER to get these pictures up, so you had better comment.

Thanks for looking!
