That's me, Yes I'm lady Rambo! lol and da da da daaaaa I made the monkey outfit that the daddy is wearing, all by myself, it was the first thing I've ever made using the old cut'n'sew technique (ie.. no pattern or anything!!) and I think it turned out PERFECT Cheesy I also made his belt out of some leather scraps left over from re-doing the interior of his citroen DS, and decorated it using paper fasteners and gold card..(last minute thing!)!!
AAAAAAAAAAANd I made the neckachief thingy!! lol

113  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / "Pirates" or "Desert Island"...??! on: January 23, 2007 02:37:00 PM
HI Grin So after MUCH MUCH MUCH consideration about this fashion collection I have to design or make, I've come up with two choices... Pirates OR Desert Island...Huh I'm doing a womens collection, I'm thinking DESERT ISLAND - floaty dresses in tropical colours, VERY feminine... PIRATES - fitted/baggy contrast, neutral colours, lots of fastenings and bits and bobs, bit masculine...

Any pro's/con's that you can see.. ideas.. opinions etc.. please let me know Grin

Thanks alot, Lou xx

115  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / DAMZEL IN DISTRESS.. please help with my collection.....!! Lou xxxx on: January 20, 2007 08:39:56 AM
Okay, I posted a question similar to this a few weeks ago about a collection I have to design and make at college, as my final major project.

I now know what I want to make, or have a slight idea, but I have to fill up an A2 sketchbook with research, samples etc etc on my chosen theme, however... as of yet, I don't actually have a theme..!

My ideas so far are, loosely fitting dresses with different length skirts, made out of chiffon or a similar sheer fabric, in bright colours (similar to those found on tropical fish etc, the colour blends too), the dreses will be shaped using ribbon or ropey stuff to hold them up... see the picture to kind of get an idea of what I mean...! this dress is by donatella versace, and used in beyonce's crazy in love video...

basically it's the band/ribbon/rope that structures the dress, and the loose bits drape really nicely!

The dresses will be worn with black or coloured cut-off tights, heels and lots of dangly jewellry that I might make myself.

Does anybody know any areas of art/design/fashion/culture etc etc, that I can research to get more inspiration for these designs??

OR does anybody know a theme to base these outfits on, or what I can call my collection??

I'm so unbelivably stuck with this I have no idea!!

Any help, even if it seems WAY off mark, would be GREATLY appreciated.

thanks..!  Grin Lou xx
116  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / what goes into a uni portfolio?! on: January 16, 2007 07:05:27 AM
So I'm applying for Uni soon and still need to put my portfolio together. So far I have like 13 or 14 strong pieces, but I still need about another 6 or 7 to finish it off.

I'm planning to carry on with fashion, so some illustrations would be good I guess, and at the moment it has some life drawing, and some observational/mixed media drawings in it. what else can I put in there?

Any help GREATLY appreciated... Grin lol.

117  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / can anybody help me analyse this cavalli dress.. pretty please!!?? on: January 14, 2007 06:15:47 AM
so I have two descriptions of this dress, the site you can buy it off, says it's silk, and the runway review says it's chiffon... can anybody identify which??

The bottom is chiffon right... or not?? I don't know, but the top looks abit different, even thicker so makbe it's made out of both.. silk for the top, and chiffon for the bottom??? AARRGHHH!

Also, can anybody help me analyse it? Sure, I guess it has been draped when making it, and it has LOTS of pretty gathering (how is this done??), Chilan - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=108480.0 thinks the top of the dress is made from several parts

At any rate... The closer I examine this dress, the easier I think that it will be.  The top seems to be several parts that are hidden with the belt in a way that it looks like one piece.  The bust is one piece, there sides of the middrift are two pieces, and then there is the back.  I guess depending on how far you want to take it, you could break it down even more...

I think she's right, and also that the back is either one or two pieces, that are attached at the side of the bottom two pieces of the front (top)... make sense??
Also, it has been died... gradient?? (pretty colours Cheesy). The skirt has been draped on the bias, so it has that lovely flow, and also it kind of a handkerchief hem... it's definately only one piece of fabric, that meets in the middle at the front...
Have I missed anything???

Thanx Cheesy Lou xx
118  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / What's your DeviantArt?? on: December 29, 2006 12:03:42 PM
Hi, I thought it would be nice to have a topic where you can post your DA page, and let people know abit about your work so they know what they're looking at Cheesy

mine's:  http://loukr.deviantart.com/

Recently I have been experimenting with various techniques and have started my own DA to show people what i'm about. I wouldn't say my art work is brilliant, or amazing, but when I finish a piece, and I feel satisfied with it, then it goes up on DA.

There's still lots more to put up on there though.

Enjoy, and looking forward to seeing everyone else's DA too Grin

Love Lou xxx
