1  Hippie-Vibe babydoll top! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MODELxBEHAViORx on: June 29, 2008 11:47:48 AM
One summer day.. I was bored and had a sudden moment of creativity. For some reason, I really liked this fabric when I found it on sale at Joann's. It's kind of crinkled, and it's very light. I'm pretty proud of this one, because I made it without a pattern, which is a first. I also really wanted braided straps, which was basically my inspiration for the top.

The front... the hem's a little wonky because my machine and I were not on good terms, so I handsewed the hem.

Not the best picture, I know. There's a lot of little imperfections, I know that too. But it's wearable and I like it enough! haha

2  Tie Dye was too boring... so I added lyrics! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MODELxBEHAViORx on: June 29, 2008 11:39:10 AM
Okay. So I tried to tie dye this white shirt, and even though I soaked it with dye, it didn't saturate enough of something and barely any dye got inside. I tried to make the shirt a little cooler by painting lyrics on the back :]

That's the front... you can see how little dye actually soaked in.. :/

There's the back with the lyrics. I'm pretty sure that the lyrics are illegible, but they're a part of "All You Need is Love" by none other than the Beatles.

Sorry the pictures are so tiny!
Opinions? What shall I do about the front?

Oh, and I wasn't really too sure where to put this. But I do hope this is the right board. Anyway..

3  hooodie =) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MODELxBEHAViORx on: February 02, 2008 06:06:41 PM
Okay so nothing too original or special, and i know that this fabric has been used before as a hoodie, but before i knew that, i saw it at joann's and knew it needed to be a hoodie. last weekend, i decided i NEEDED to make something. with the help of gnacissej's tutorial and some pattern drafting of my own, i came up with this:

there are a lot of imperfections and such, but it's my first project that i can actually use without embarrassment  Smiley

any comments are welcome, thanks for taking a look!

4  PLEASE HELP!! (w/ pictures) in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by MODELxBEHAViORx on: July 12, 2006 12:14:58 PM
hi all...
so two days ago, through ideas from both the clothing line Primp and forums topics (especially the designer homage!), i decided that i'd try to make my own unicorn-applique(sp?) kind of thing. only now i'm having a little bit of trouble and figured since there are so many creative and knowing crafters on these forums, that maybe you guys would be able to help me.

ANYWAYS.. i made the appliques out of a linen-like fabric and traced the design and painted them with fabric paint. all was well until i tried to sew it on to the shirt.

Problem #1: The fabric doesn't hold to the thread very well (as in the thread cut through the fabric and stitches "fall out", if you can understand what i'm saying?)
Problem #2: It's difficult to sew onto a shirt by hand (was wondering if there are any good techniques?)

Here are some pictures:

^ This is one of the appliques I made...

^Another applique, pinned to one of the shirts that i'm trying to sew it to

^The other kind of shirt (tank top) that I want to put the applique on...

sorry to complain/sound annoying/vent/for the long post...
does anyone have anyone have any suggestions?
thank you all so much!!
