1  Hotpants time! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by miasu on: October 20, 2010 01:33:25 PM
So, I haven't posted in forever and ever and ever! Well, I haven't sewed in ages, so it's not like I've had anything to share Sad Buut, I got the crave again and whipped up these hotpants. They'd been on my mind for a long time before I finally hunkered down and made them. I love in a dorm now, and a lovely friend modeled them for me in her (so charmingly messy) room. I don't know, I just really liked the nonchalant feel of having a messy backdrop.

These are made with a damask knit (I've made some underwear from them as well) with black knit for contrast.

I got the plaid/houndstooth lycra a while ago, but this is the first I've used it. The metallic spandex was a gift for helping the girls across the hall with their togas.

And finally, my favorite thing to work with: animal print! If I could, I'd deck out everything in it.

That's all for now! Hopefully I'll be a bit more active with my sewing Wink

Where can I find high-quality craft felt? Or at least what terms should I be looking for that indicate it? Here are some images of what I'm looking for:

It looks so nice and smooth!

3  More and more playsuit pajamas! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by miasu on: January 05, 2010 04:09:31 PM
Okay, so remember that elephant playsuit jammies I made a while back? It got featured in BUST magazine! I just had to share with ya'll Smiley

Check it out (item #5):

Since my debut into the world, hah, I have been busy coming up with others.

Here's the first one. It's got cute heart apples and a bright, green trim.

This one I made custom, so I didn't actually model it:

This one is actually my favorite. It just turned out super cute and cuddly!

Then finally I grabbed a dinosaur thermal knit find at Joann's to make this one:

That's all for now, yay!

4  Tunic Dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by miasu on: September 30, 2009 03:37:51 PM
So, I've been wanting to create something with a lace inset since I first began sewing, and I just hadn't yet! Finally, here are two dresses/tunics/whatever with pretty lace insets. They each have a peterpan-like collar and a sweetheart bustline.

7  Dresses and thongsses (and a whole load of pics) now linked to the TUTORIAL in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by miasu on: August 08, 2009 11:46:43 AM
UPDATE: Here's the link to the tutorial I created for you guys! http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/contour-bust-dress-and-tute

So, lately I have been super productive! That is very unusual.... Anyway, I have made 2 dresses and some thongs to share. The 2 dresses are very  similar 'cause I used the same pattern for them. I just created this contour bustline that is incredible! it's so supportive and flattering. Yet, each dress delivers such a different look just based on fabric choices! Man, I wish that I could not only keep them, but have places to wear them to! Then, the thongs are T-back style, which, for me anyway, are the only comfortable thong. I had a lot of fun making them--they are unbelievably quick to make! So onto the pictures!

Here's the first dress made from leopard print (I have an unusually avid love for animal prints!) and this super soft black twill. I think the lace straps give it such a dainty feel! (I love lace too!)

Here's the back. It dips quite low, and I loove it! The

Here's a close up of the bodice (and me looking not so yummy). It's painfully difficult to see the construction, which is sort of sad, because it's so intricate! Ah well...

The next dress. As said before, it uses the same tulip design. I actually scored the paisley at the thrift store, and I think it looks great with the satiny burgundy. Ah, I so wish the construction wasn't so hard to see! It looks just like your typical sweetheart bust, but really it hugs your curves perfectly! I am so proud of it Smiley

A close-up of the whole dress. If you squint reaallly hard, you can see the details of the contoured bust!

And, finally the back. Boy, I LOVE lace!!!! If I could, I'd put it on everything! Oh wait.. I nearly do  Roll Eyes

Okay onto the thongs! These are such great uses of scrap/stash fabric!

Here's them all:

Then a close up for each:

These were made from a light-weight, almost burnout, gray knit. All of them use the same picot elastic edging

Then, a ribbed polka-dot on a cream background (I have boatloads of this. Thank god I finally found something to use it for! Of course, it would be something that hardly takes up any fabric at all...)

And then one from the same damask I used for my other panties. And if you look closely, the crotch piece for this one is a little surprise!

And a final picture of them all again! (I have way too much fun with my camera)

Haha, okay, thanks for spending time looking at all these pictures! I really, really love craftster in that I am able to share all my creations with others that are interested. It's so much fun making stuff, but even better when I can show it off somewhere!

8  Pantieees! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by miasu on: July 23, 2009 08:11:55 PM
I love underwear so much, I could eat them! But, don't worry, I don't actually eat them...

These were both made with the same damask knit (you can find it at hobbylobby) and pattern, just with different trimmings.

These have pink lace and elastic additions:

Here's me booty Wink

And these were made with black lace and red knit:

What? You wanted to see my butt again? Well, if you insist...  Grin

So, basically, I love making underwear... It's so satisfying because they're quick and easy!

9  Slip Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by miasu on: June 13, 2009 06:36:11 AM
So I found this slip at the goodwill, and I reconstructed it into this dress! I loved the roses fabric, and I thought it was the perfect way to use it. It's real light and airy and super summery!

This was my first slip reconstruction, and I have to say, I love it!

10  Playsuit for JAMMIES! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by miasu on: June 11, 2009 08:49:35 AM
So, playsuits are SO the rage! Anyway, I was asked if you slept in them... And I have actually made one specifically for snoozing/lounging. While you could sleep in any one, it would sort of be like sleeping in a dress... Cheesy But, people DO sleep in slips, right? So, this is the slip of playsuits!

It's made from thermal knit with little red cherries all over. The sleeves are extra long to be extra cozy Smiley plus, it's really practical- you know how when you wear a tank or slip to bed, in the morning, somehow it turns a 360 on your body and the left strap is choking you, while the right is all up under your armpit? That doesn't even include all the extra parts of your body exposed....  Grin But, with this playsuit, things stay where they are supposed to be! Score!

Smiley I hope you have enjoyed all my playsuits, despite the confusion of where and how to wear them! (Don't worry, I'm battling with that myself too!)
