2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / getting ready for fall with frillies on: August 06, 2007 06:50:22 PM
so this was a little kids tee with a stain on it and a washed out big sweatshirt.. added lace and the yellow ribbon.
now we have a fall top.... with an overdose of lace. not sure if i overdid it framing the picture. but thats why i cut out the top (to get rid of some of the lace and show some skin). and i was thinkin the pearls help distract some of the attention away from the lace...
anyway, here it is

in action:
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Green/Yellow/Red Hoodie -thanks gnacissej on: August 04, 2007 02:11:06 PM
A big thanks for this tutorial --> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177602.0

I was not fortunate enough to find Veggietales print or anything relatively cool, so I picked up this green cotton/flannel and made my own design by sewing on yellow ribbon (which took some time!). I'm soooo happy with how this turned out and definitely credit it to the handy tutorial Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A shirt to match the matchless pants!! on: July 22, 2007 08:04:35 PM
So I bought these wicked pink and grey checked pants for ten bucks... But without a shirt to match. And they're dressy by nature but I wanted them to be casual.
Grey jersey + pink jersey material = this new shirt. I freehanded it (without a pattern) Yay.

haha gotta love the hand in the air , mid pose, clearly didnt expect the camera to go off right then... Tongue
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Venezuela Parrot Tube Top on: July 21, 2007 09:27:30 AM
Again, another old t-shirt of my mothers.
As I cut the shirt up, I used the remaining pieces as a template for the inserted pieces.

Dont ind the backwardness of the writing... its a result of photographing in the mirror.


From the sides...

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Exotic parrots + Leftover jersey material. on: July 19, 2007 11:02:40 PM
The parrot part is from an ooold shirt that had marks, holes, and pitstains.  SO, I cut away, sliced up some leftover ornage jersey material, added straps and bands and taaaaa-da! A new tank top!

I didnt use a pattern but I understood how to freehand the upper band and the straps cause I followed the same idea as Simplicity 3882 (a bubble dress) which I have sewn from twice.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 80's print + bubble dress + Simplicity 3882 on: July 17, 2007 10:24:47 PM
Ooookay so, this is my third go at Simplicity 3882.  Can't get enough of this pattern (evidently).  I've done both styles, A and B, this is my second time doing the bubble dress style. My first one was an orange bubble dress...THe post is somewhere around , I dont have the link on me tho.
Anyway, here it is. The only diff btwn this and the orange one i made was that I made this one a little smaller and the material is slightly thinner so it hangs nicer.

And then with the waist belt.........Black is a bit harsh with it, maybe a pink waist belt would be better.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity 3882 AGAIn... :) ORange Bubble dress on: June 16, 2007 12:19:05 AM
Sooo many others have done this pattern too - Easy to find , just search Simplicity 3882 and you'll find many forums for it.. This is pattern A.. I've also done pattern B which you can find in another thread..
Anyway, the pattern is pretty much a maternity dress and has thep otential to make ya look 50 pounds heavier from the side. Hence the little tie below the bust i added to give some shape to it....
It is a really easy pattern but I struggled a little adding the top badn to the body but relatively speaking it was still simple. I might just be retarded.  I wanna make this pattern again but the short version of the dress - the top. Itd be uber cute with jeans.
Oh and for anyone thats interested.. I didnt adjust the patterns dress length and Im about 5'6" if that gives u an idea how short it is and you plan to make it... I think this is a decent length. Bubble dresses can't be too long anyway
And here it is

Aloha! My newest creation, from Simplicity 4230, #C.  The chains were my own addition (the pattern didn't call for them).  Ya think I should add more chainage? Perhaps on the arms? Im not sure...

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Denimtastic Dress! - sliced, diced and patched - on: March 07, 2007 06:33:20 PM
I intially was going to make this a skirt for my portfolio to get into fashion school but decided to turn it into a dress.. Thus, this is the result of both a skirt and a dress pattern.  All sewn from old scraps of jeans (I had a lot!)  The waistband is patches sewn together, the skirt itself is panels sewn together.. The body/top part is stretchy denim and the top band stiff denim - the dress pattern called for straps, I think I'll have to add some b/c it's too loose at the top...

Oh and I haven't totally finished the top band so in teh third pic it might look a little uneven

Any suggestions what I can add to it? I feel like something's not quite right, I think its the length but otherwise... ?  And any ideas for straps? Im thinking something delicate.
Thanks and don't ask for a tutorial Cheesy iit took way too long to make

Okay, i roughly pinned up the bottom, and added suspenders and i think BIG improvement, yes?
