1  Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! in Clothing Sewalongs by stargirl52 on: March 30, 2008 01:01:10 AM
Okay, so, I have 3 formals (the Kiwi equivalent of proms) this year. And to at least one, I plan on wearing a dress similar to this one:

Isn't it wonderful?! But yes, I'm looking for a similar pattern, or a pattern with a similar bodice shape. I'm going to et rid of the pintucks, so it should be easy enough? Any help would be very much appreciated!

2  Pattern matching help for super-cute dress?? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by stargirl52 on: March 30, 2008 12:00:37 AM
For at least one of my formals (the Kiwi equivalent of prom) this year, I'm planning on makng a dress similar to this:

I plan on it being pretty much the same, except without the puntucks and rick-rack on the bodice. So, does anyone know of any patterns with a similar shaped bodice? Or any patterns that are similar in general?
If you can help, I'll be forever in your debt. Thank you in advance!

3  Belle & Sebastian, skeletons and dancing dogs (a fair few pictures). in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stargirl52 on: March 20, 2007 09:39:16 PM
Hello world of Craftster!

I used to be madcore active here, but I took a very long break. I'M BACK! BAM!

Crafting escapades over the past few months:

Here we have a pilot's thumb, wrecked as he did homeward come. I mean, a wall hanging pattern that I bought last halloween and made into a skirt.

Aaaaaand I made a skirt a little shorter than the above one from this fabric:

It's vintage, 1930's reproduction fabric. I got less than a meter of if and had to be super careful.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, my Belle & Sebastian tshirt. The tshirt is from a little boys clothing store (there are advantages to being tiny!) and the print is one of their old tour posters that I altered slightly and made an iron-on with.

The iron-on, however, sucked ass, and has cracked and flaked after 2 wears.

Iiiiii also made this skirt:

from some really grossly awesome fabric I got for $2/meter. THERE GOES MY CAMERA AGAIN. It's so modern it hurts. Ow.

Here we have (sadly) the only half-decent photo I can find of the black pinafore dress I made:

(And my super rad pink skinny jeans!)

SO YEAH. There's more that I am too lazy to photograph/upload. Next on the menu is many stencilled/screened tshirts. Give me ideas!

4  My chucks are better than yours (CAMWHORE) in Shoes: Completed Projects by stargirl52 on: March 19, 2006 08:43:12 PM
What do you get when you combine five hyperactive teenage girls, these plain shoes...

(the green and white ones)

a new 12-pack of Sharpies and a helluvuhlotta bubblecup...


You get these, my friend.

You know you love them.

During'd! Dresden Dolls lyric'd!

Crotch shot'd!

Yes, that's Pikachu.

Close up of such witty phrases as 'Pants Party' and 'I <3 Beards'

And, yes, that is Jesus's green house. No offense meant.

I have one happy tongue and one emo tongue.

5  Where to find vintage-y keys in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by stargirl52 on: February 21, 2006 09:27:52 PM
Recently, I've developed a crazy obsession with keys. Why? Dude, I have no idea. But I need more. Namely vintage looking ones like these...

(picture stolen from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=26507.20 )

Now, does anyone know any websites from which I could get me some like that?

Thanks times a million in advance,

7  Dorothy-santa-elf shoes. Happy fun time! in Shoes: Completed Projects by stargirl52 on: September 17, 2005 09:48:06 PM
K, so, I went to Kmart (I guess the Kiwi/Aussie version of Walmart) and got me some granny shoes. They were hideous and grotesque, but only $7.43. I had to do something with them, and came up with a plan. Muahahahahaaaa. So, anyway, I cut them up, painted them, added some elastic, and now I lurves them.

In their original fogey state (note the socks- I really love dots). Aren't they icky?

Them now- the coolest shoes on earth! The photo kindly exaggerates the poor paint job and splodgeyness, which is always nice. They are kinda like vans crossed with mary-janes crossed with ballet flats I guess. They are cherry red with leafy green dots, elastic and little bittys on the sides (which you can't really see).

Peeking out from the bottom of my jeans. Yep, I'm pigeon toed.

Please comment, I would love to know what y'all think.

8  Re: Any idea how to make this Marc by MJ dress? in Designer Clothing Homage by stargirl52 on: September 06, 2005 08:38:10 PM
Oh, that dress! That is one of the ones I admire every day. That fabric! That cut! Those puffy sleeves! We are twins, I know it.
Oh, I love his use of tied layered belts and clashing patterns. And this dress and jacket are some of my favourites...

(Go Stam!)
Also, this by LVRTWss05 is gorgeous..

(Diana Dondoe is underused)
I'm such a fashion nerd.
Now I want this dress more than ever.
To all others that aren't IAte86Crayons...
Sorry for clogging up your thread Smiley

Ok, once you ahve hosted a pic and it says "no more images found" go back to the main page, a'ight? Now, click your image, and you will get a page with lots of flash gibberish and your picture. Ignore most of the gibberish, apart from the one at the veeeery bottom that says "UBB Code". This is what really matters. Copy and paste this code, which should look something like this (without the spaces)  [i  m   g] htt p:// www.craf  ts ter.org /pi ctures/dat    a/500/240  89 payton-    paint ing  -2-me d.jpg   [ /im g]  .That will work perfectly. Or at least it SHOULD. If not .....I shall help.
See..... here's your bracelet hippie...

Any questions?

10  Heart Charm Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by stargirl52 on: May 31, 2005 11:17:48 PM
Well, this is my take on those charm necklaces that are everywhere (here in NZ at least). They are usually a bunch of nicknacks and doodaddys strung onto a chain, maybe with a theme.
I have a catchall bag, with lots of charms and beads gathered from so many different sources.
On this necklace is...

-A silver heart outline with little faux diamonds in it. I found it on the ground somewhere ages ago. THis is showing the wrong side.
-Big red oval sequin. The light in my lounge makes it look a dull shade of pooey brown, but it is very bright and shiny.
-A little silver heart with yet another faux diamond in the centre. You can't see it very well, but there isn't that much to see. It came free on the chain with Girlfriend magazine.
-A weird crowny one that my awesome science teacher Mr. Phillip gave me. It was sitting on his desk today, and i said "that's pretty," and he said "have it."
So I did.
And that was that.
-Woody one. Hard to see, but it has a rose engraved on the side you can't see, and the word "love".
-Silver locket. I paid a whole $1 for it.

When it is worn, all the charms hang at different levels, as I attatched wood, Mr Phillip and sequin to a loop with knots at intervals, made from clear fishing wirey stuff.
Do comment, 'twas quick but easy, and I have many a charm left in my catchall to make a few more.
