11  Granny's Upholstery Dress and Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by goonie on: May 21, 2011 07:23:29 PM
Another one of my weird obsessions - floral fabric.  60s and 70s upholstery has some of the best patterns and colorways in my personal opinion.  I made this dress a couple years ago from some daisy fabric, with floral piping and white rose buttons.  I finally got some good pictures...

and I just made this skirt from watercolor floral upholstery and teal and black striped taffeta (the stripes are velvet!)

12  a rose is a rose is a rose... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by goonie on: March 24, 2011 08:18:02 PM
Made of all vintage fabric, the top is a decadent bejeweled rose print, with a black velvet bow.  The skirt is a golden taffeta with black velvet stripes.  I went for a more classic 60's victorian look this time, instead of the usual kitsch.  any thoughts?

16  The Classic 50's Housewife, Twisted (IMG GALORE) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by goonie on: December 19, 2010 12:43:24 PM
A few years ago, I posted a housewife dress that I made, and you can see it here:
But, I can't make the same thing for too long, but I can't get away from the beauty of the button-up front.  so I've moved on to using vintage button-ups as a basis for the bodice, putting lace cutouts in the back, and using vintage prints for the skirts...what do you guys think?
1. Tuxedo Style Mod

2. Rodeo Floral Cowgirl

3. Gingham Housewife With Bow Sash

4. Diamond Lace Cutout with Striped Sheeeeer Goodness

I was going to put up another, but I don't wanna crash all yall's computers.  Any suggestions for how these could be made better?  I can take critiques!

Here's a couple new dresses I've made - all from recycled/vintage materials and my own patterns.  The first one is vintage upholstery, eyelet, brown cotton and fabric printed with a 1970s stuffed doll pattern...and the second is vintage florals, lace, with a hand quilted skirt.

19  Black Floral Tapestry Backpack in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by goonie on: August 14, 2010 12:30:31 PM
About a year ago, my friend gave me a small piece of tapestry, which I finally decided to make a backpack out of.  It's got black corduroy on the sides, green cotton lining, a salvaged buckle and lace trim on the flap...I'll be making a lot more of these, so if you have any comments/criticism, it's welcome!

I've been gone for a while - busy sewing up a storm and not having computer access....but here's my most recent creation, a dress made out of a Jesus tapestry I found at a thrift store...the bottom band is burgundy velvet with lace trim, and the tie in the back is polka dotted cotton...comments/criticism?
