2  So, I Wanna Make a Princess Dress But..... in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by iluv2laf573 on: February 21, 2009 08:24:26 AM
Alright, for prom this year I decided it would fun if my friends and I dressed up like various Disney Princesses.  My Princess is Belle, and I really want to recreate the dress she wore in the dancing scene with the Beast.  Anyway, I was searching the internet to see if I could find a pattern or tut or something, and I found this  gorgeous dress on Etsy:

Close-up of the skirt:

But unfortunately, it's $500 and I kinda wanted to make it myself.  Anyway, I found a pattern for the top part of the dress (http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2717.htm?search=2717&page=1), but I couldn't find anything for the bottom.  If someone could find a pattern with those ruffles, or a tut, or just some advice, that would be great. I kind of understand how they work (ruched), but don't know what to cut out to achieve that length or if it's two skirts or something.

Thanks in advance!

3  Margarita Cake [Warning: Large Pics] in Dessert by iluv2laf573 on: January 24, 2009 09:03:26 AM
So, it doesn't have any actual alcohol in it, seeing as it was for my 18th b-day party.  My party was a luau/Margaritaville theme party, and I saw this idea online.  I used a devil's cake cake mix and white/food-colored dyed green frosting.  For the 'salt' I dyed sugar with green food dye.  My mom found these awesome Margarita candles at Michaels. Anyway, here is the cake.

6  Just in Time for St. Patrick's Day! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by iluv2laf573 on: March 13, 2008 06:42:55 PM
So I saw this tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0 a long time ago and knew I had to make it.  I made this one with ridiculously cheap St. Patrick's Day fabric, and now I'm addicted to making these!  Anyway, here are my 'artsy' pictures.

7  Indigo Pencil Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by iluv2laf573 on: March 13, 2008 03:17:11 PM
So I'm  really proud of this dress.  I drafted the pattern myself and everything.  There are some things I'd change, but this dress was kind of a practice, and I have enough fabric to make another (only required 1 yd.  of fabric and the fabric was only $2 a yard!)  Anyway, here it is!

8  So full of awesomness you may not be able to handle it [PIC HEAVY] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by iluv2laf573 on: March 13, 2008 02:15:08 PM
Okay, so I decided to finally get off my bum and actually post stuff.

So this was a gianomorous blue t-shirt from Michaels.  I saw this:  http://i32.tinypic.com/2r4ndiw.jpg and thought, 'Wow, I could kind of make that,'  And then...I did....kind of.  It's pretty much the same but I had three buttons on each side (you can't really tell in the pics due to my crappy photography skills, but one button kind of fell off.  oops) and it doesn't criss cross in the back.



Buttons (the good side Tongue):

Bodice close-up:

Onto the next surgery.  So, I made this dress.  Cuz I was bored.  That's pretty much it.  Oh, well, I used 1 giant black t-shirt and some rad plaid fabric I had.


Bodice (or as my friends and I like to refer to it:  the booble region):


This one was for V-Day.  Um, I used a big pink t-shirt, and I wore a shirt under it and this belt.  The binding is from the rib knit in the original neckline.  Um, the straps aren't finished cuz I was going for the 'punk-edgy' vibe (actually, I was too lazy to Tongue)




Okay, this one has a story.  I bought this shirt in a thrift store and was like, 'I should make a hoodie out of this.'  So I cut the shirt in half on the non-graphic side and tried to put a zipper in.  then my machine decided to eat my t-shirt.  so then it was all holey and too small to make a hoodie, but I had already cut it.  So I set it aside, and behold, I found it again and came up with a solution!.......


And then VABAMM!!!!!!!!!!  Add another t-shirt to the back and you're good to go.

And so you can see the awesomeness of TWO colors (At ONCE!-kinda):

And now just for your amusement, my dog wearing a little hat I made for him out a Post-it note, and clearly not too happy about it.

What do you think?

9  Starry Corset in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by iluv2laf573 on: January 15, 2008 03:28:28 PM
Ah procrastination....midterms are next week and I probably should have been studying instead of making this.  Anywho, I used some cottony star fabric I had lying around (I was gonna make a skirt, but yeah...never did  Tongue)   I used Roethke's tut, but instead of using plastic from cartons, I used the tops of old hanging file folders.

Anyway, here is the results of my procrastination:

Comments welcomed Smiley

Okay.....so I finally took pictures of stuff I made a long time ago, and I made a bunch of new stuff becuase I had the past few days off work.  So, here they are:

From an old Brewers T-shirt:

From an old ribbed t-shirt and cute flannel fabric:

From an old striped Amereican Eagle shirt (from the thrift store) and a another thrift store t-shirt:

Also from two thrift store finds:

From a striped shirt and 14 eyelets (I still need to finish the sleeves):

From a huge ugly XXL thrift store tee:

And finally, from a polka dot blouse:

Whew!  That's a lot.  Anyway, comments and critism are appreciated!

If anyone wants a tut, just let me know.

I got PMed a couple of times for a tut for this shirt:

So I did a quick tut in Paint.  If it doesn't make sense (first time writing a tut), let me know!
