1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Homecoming Dress! on: September 22, 2009 03:12:59 PM
Ehh, I guess I just have this weird thing where I associate elastic waist bands with my Grandmother's jeans... And I know it's weird, because most of my shorts have elastic waist bands. It's just me being a brat and saying "I don't wanna!" Oh well.

I like the idea of the snaps, I may do that! And I'm not worried about it slipping down, I would just rather have it in one piece because, as I said, I'm a brat. And a little particular/obnoxious about this.

I'm not sure if I have time for a zipper is the thing, but I may end up going out really quickly the day of or something to get one.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Homecoming Dress! on: September 20, 2009 01:04:22 PM
Hey people! My homecoming is in a week, and I started my dress yesterday. Ha. Procrastinator. Anyways, I am making it pretty simple, but I'm having a bit of trouble. The top will be like a corset but with no boning, and it will lace up the back. That part I'm fine with. The only place I'm having trouble is the skirt. I don't want to have a zipper, so my question is this:

How can I make the skirt attach to the corset so that I can get in and out of it easily?

I mean, I'm really thin, but I want the skirt to sort of poof out from where it's attached to the corset. So I know I'm going to gather the skirt at the top. But if it's a dress, I'm just worried about being able to get in the corset and skirt... If I'm unclear please let me know!

Thanks! I'm not too crazy about the bottom of the back where it has a sharp drop or whatever, but I'm much too lazy to change anything now... Smiley

Well, I have been in love with the original "Big Girl Cheytown Dress" for a while, and I have been wanting to make my own version since I saw that topic posted. Unfortunately, my sewing machine is broken. So when I got to take home my friends sewing machine for a school project (we're making a quilt for our "Final Conference"... it's really neat! I'll post pictures when it' finished), I knew I wanted to make it. So I went in my Dad's closet, found a shirt I really liked, and cut it up without his knowing. I really liked the dress that gatling gun had made, but I wanted a strapless beachy dress, more of a cover-up. And now for my almost final product!

The Front...

And Again...

And Wha-BAM! The back.

As you can see, I opted for strapless, and I made it sort of an empire mini dress. I love it! Now I just have to sew up the last side. Tell me what you think!

Ok, so I have been admiring Suzi Blu for months and months, watching her videos on youtube and trying several "playshop" ideas on my sketch paper, but I always wanted a journal to try them in. I finally got a pretty good one at Borders, even if it's more landscape-y than I would have liked. It's very... rectangular. Anyways, that's not the point. The point is, I finally started it, and I have the first two pages done. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for me. I showed my Mother, and she got excited, but I don't really trust her opinion, because she HAS to like it. Anyways, here are the sub-par pictures:

Sorry for the blurriness... This is my first ever attempt at one of these, so obviously they aren't that great. But I like them. Smiley

Second Page. I burned some old cards that I liked, wrote a journal entry, and cut up a transparency. I then used Brads to make it a pocket. Also, my ticket to "Confessions of a Shopaholic".

Oh my Damn. It's a pocket.

Holy crap! That's sparkly! And really pink!

It's really cool, I've always wanted to make an altered book. I've been "studying" (which consists of stalking crafters on craftster whose books I really admire and googling pictures and techniques constantly) for weeks, and I plan to make my very best friend one for Christmas.

I love it. Can't wait to see more from you!

Just that the shirt changes are a bit to drastic for me.

I like the black thread with it, better than red! If only my sewing machine hadn't broken... *sigh*
