1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My First Puppet-Making Results! on: February 27, 2019 11:21:33 AM
Hey, Craftster! It sure has been a while. I'm glad to see this place is still trucking; I regularly recommend it to people as a place to start their sewing self-education.

Recently, I've been getting into puppet making, and this is the result of my first full venture. My husband and I did the puppeteering and I made the puppets.

You can check out the video I made here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXHHrZqszG4

Hope you're well nd thanks for your time!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Lady Gaga Pointed Shoulder Pattern/Technique on: March 06, 2012 12:37:03 AM
For some reason, I can't get my head around how the pointed shoulder/puff sleeve look is achieved.

I want it to look like that. Anyone have any light to shed on the subject?
Love always,
Hayley Jane
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Patchwork Tinkerbell! Last minute costume success! on: October 30, 2010 09:38:33 PM
The last few days have found me obsessed with Tinkerbell, mainly because I am a faerie and have recently returned to blonde. I started planning a Tinkerbell burlesque number, which I am currently saving up to costume correctly.

So, I found these shoes.

Which I easily turned into perfect Tink shoes with the deconstruction of my white ostrich boa that I never use.

Well, I had a party to go to last night, and no costume.
So Tink obviously had to happen, not for use as a burlesque costume in the future, but just for now.

I didn't have a lot of green fabric in my stash, so I patchworked a bunch of various green/blue fabrics together and drafted a pattern.

The blue in the front is blue/green iridescent dupioni silk that my mother bought me for Christmas. The big green patch at my waist is from a pair of leggings I wrecked to get more green fabric. The leggings got turned into boyshorts to wear under this EXTREMELY SHORT dress and got cut into strips for the dangly bits at the bows and the straps. There's also some striped knit fabric gotten on sale at Joann's [because I ALWAYS buy black/white striped fabric when it's there because I can usually never find it], some multi-green/blue/brown stripes with gold lines in it, some green plaid, and some multi-colored batik with a green base.

The back is elasticated at the waist to make it easy to put on and ties on either side of the elastic to cinch it in like Tink's dress does. It's pretty much an apron with some shape and a skirt.

I really like the pattern- it was easy to make and didn't threaten to come off at all during the night. I think I might make a couple more to wear for festivals and to slip on after burlesque numbers. I could totally rock some garter straps where the skirt comes up at the front panel.

Love always,
Hayley Jane

P.S. Might put together a tutorial when/if I make another one. Anyone interested?

I just need ONE GOOD PICTURE so I can figure out how to make one.
Google image search has totally failed me.
Does anyone have any images or pattern help for a 1940s dress flight hats for the ladies?

You know, the kind that are pointy and at a jaunty angle.

PINTSIZE!  That's great. Gotta love the monocle.

You need to make a Winslow one now.
Because if you don't, I will....

I'm not even kidding, you made me love the exaggerated high collar.
I'm going to be moving to Michigan pretty soon, so you're a huge inspiration to me right now with designing jackets and such!  These are amazing, as usual.

Those are so beautiful it's offensive. Really. I love sugar skulls, and then you had to go and add a key and lock, and that's just putting it over the edge of awesome and into the pit of SO AMAZING THAT IT'S PAINFUL.

So take your painfully offensive awesomeness to Etsy and sell us all some sugar skull shoes!
