1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fringe Bikini Top on: April 28, 2013 08:31:40 AM
I had been dying for a fringe bikini top, and found one at target, but it wasnt fringe-y enough. I used Kwik Sew 2769 for the top, added two layers of fringe and criss-cross straps to the back. The bottoms are from Target.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Big Floral Mod Dress on: April 30, 2011 11:16:05 AM
Ok, so I saw this adorable Lilly Pulitzer dress a few weeks back, but obviously as a poor college student could not afford it. Fast forward to a few weeks later. My dad and I are in LA and fabric shopping, and I found a fabric sooo similar. And out came this dress. I got some adorable matching teal sandals and cropped sweater go with it and still came out cheaper than buying her dress haha

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Red Sparkle Vinyl Rockabilly Handbag on: April 13, 2011 01:10:05 PM
I'd been seeing a lot of bags similar to these but they are too expensive and I knew I could make one on my own. It was my first time doing tuck and roll and it was way easier than I thought. Its made out of sparkly vinyl and a mexican blanket from the flea market! I also made vinyl piping for the bag. To make it stand up I used cardboard but next time I will definitely look for something else that is just as sturdy but not as hard to cut! I put that underneath the lining. I love my new bag!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A Couple of Totes! (again........) on: April 03, 2011 10:30:21 AM
I had some really cute scraps so I turned them into totes!

The charms on the Paris tote are hand embroidered on felt and stuffed. On the strawberry it is actually a mini pouch that you can use to put grocery bags in! How cool!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 60's Pom Pom Dress on: March 28, 2011 06:17:58 PM
Can I just say that I love this fabric. I found it at Walmart randomly and knew it would be a simple shift dress. I got some ADORABLE mini flower trim to go with it.

Today was the first day of spring break and its starting to warm up so I figured Id start my break off with a cute dress.

Its made from a vintage 60s shift dress pattern, which literally has like three pieces, its super simple and always has great results.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Stacks o' Books Kindle Sleeve on: March 28, 2011 01:54:06 PM
omg how perfect is this fabric for a Kindle sleeve!!!

I was out shopping for fabric for bags and I stumbled upon this fabric, and knew it had to be an e-reader case. Its just a simple padded sleeve with a vintage wool covered button.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Garden Party Pleated Tote on: March 26, 2011 12:36:14 AM
I had some fabric left over from my Garden Party dress, found here:

so I decided to make a tote!

This was a lot of experimenting and creative cutting, but I love the way it turned out, especially the fabric flower left over from my belt! So cute!!

So. I have been dying for years to get my hand on a Lilly Pulitzer dress but literally cannot afford 258 bucks for a simple shift dress.

Instead, I made myself one. I want to order some of her fabric but not until I made a practice dress and figured out how much I needed.

I love this fabric, its Amy Butlers Midnight Water Bouquet from the Love collection. The belt is made from some scrap yellow searsucker that was lying around. I love the shape of this dress and the high neckline! Oh, and I cannot forget to mention my invisible zipper which I am super proud of, I am finally getting the hang of those suckers!

The dress pattern is Simplicity 3833, its a vintage 60s reprint.
