2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Marathon Completion Party Ideas? on: April 22, 2009 11:27:06 AM
My mom is running her first marathon in a few weeks and we're having a big party to celebrate. We've tried to find some running-themed party decorations, but they don't seem to exist. Does anyone have any interesting ideas for decorations we can make?

So far we're making a "finish line" to hang up, we have cones that have the name of the race stenciled on them, and we bought 100 chocolate sneakers. What else can we do?

Philly AIDS Thift is at 514 Bainbridge (one block away from South St.). They have amazing stuff--vintage, new, etc. all at really great prices. They have more than just clothes, too. Very cool place. And all the money raised goes to a local AIDS foundation, so it's even better.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / the IKEA skirt (lots of pictures!) on: March 23, 2008 09:33:41 AM
My friend is the president of our school's FCCLA and she persuaded me to join. There's a conference every year that has competitions in a lot of areas, including fashion design. I wanted to come up with something really unique, since she said most people use solid colored fabric and generic looking patterns.

So I did my fabric shopping at IKEA.

Yeah, the Swedish furniture store. They have fabric downstairs, and they cut it for you and everything. It's probably meant for curtains and pillows and reupholstering chairs, but I thought they would make pretty sweet skirts. So I bought a yard of this bright, springy fabric and got to work!

I created the pattern myself, making the edges at the bottom circular and the tops rectangular. I have sketches if anyone's interested in seeing them. I put an extra seam in the back to make it flow a little more. I made a waistband with a pink knit, and I also put a zipper in the side. I made a bow out of sheer pink fabric. I really love this skirt and can't wait to wear it! The judges loved it too...they gave me a silver medal and kept telling me how interesting and creative it was to go fabric shopping at IKEA.

See how much I stand out compared to some of the other participants? Even though they all made BEAUTIFUL and amazing garments.

This is me on the runway: (we actually had to model...it was...weird.)

Here's the skirt and my silver medal!

I hope you like it! And if you want a tutorial, I'll be glad to scan my drawings and explain the pattern pieces a bit more!

As per request, here's my drawing!
