1  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Re: Anthropologie Homage Skirt - Seafarer's Map on: May 02, 2008 06:14:07 AM
I love it! Like, for real, LOVE it. It is currently my favorite skirt in the world.

Wow. Thanks!

Oh this is superb!!!!
Just the sort of dress I like is it jersey?

Thanks. It's a stretch knit, but more like a swimsuit fabric.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Yoga Mat Bag, McCall's 4261 on: February 23, 2008 07:05:16 AM
I made my first bag - hooray. I actually had made a coat out of this royal blue wide whale corduroy, but it was huge and unlovely. Embarrassed  I decided to turn it into a mat bag to salvage something from the fabric. This is an easy pattern with good results possible in a couple hours or less. I made the strap from the same fabric and added ribbon trim to the pocket.

Check out this month's Lucky, with Rachel Bilson on the cover, to see a great shot of Jenny in glam attire.

Everyone seems to love love love this pattern on Pattern Review, so I tried it. Turns out it is pretty easy and quite flattering. I think I'll make several more in different sleeve lengths. Wink

Comments and questions welcome.
7  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Anthropologie Homage Skirt - Seafarer's Map on: January 13, 2008 01:15:06 PM
I'm not normally one for nautical clothing or nautical anything for that matter, but for some reason this Anthropologie skirt spoke to me.
But I'm not paying $118 to indulge a whim.
I didn't want to copy it exactly, but rather take strong inspiration from it. This is what I came up with. Please comment! This is my first "knock off" project. It came in under $30 including fabrics, pattern and trims.

I did all the embroidery by hand as well.

Despite being named for Hilary Duff, a cute dress and fairly easy. What do you think?
