2  I made a hoodiedress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Heike on: April 10, 2009 03:23:23 AM
Hey all, I made a hoodie using the pattern by RHLS, found on threadbanger.

I'm really proud of this one, and the fabric used may be the most awsome ugly fabric ever.
I made it a bit longer with a big stretchy band at the bottom, so it fits well and i can wear it
as a dress. It's soooo comfortable!

Some pics:
posing with my sunglasses on because it was late at night already Tongue

the back is my favorite

3  fun with feathers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Heike on: March 22, 2009 01:11:08 PM
hey all, i wanted to make the cute feather things like http://kenleycollins.com/wp-content/uploads/wpsc/product_images/black%20net%20copy.jpg kenley wears on project runway...
I wanted to make them a litte smaller so i could wear them a little subtle.

i know a lot of people are making these nowadays, but i thought it would be cool to show them
to you none the less. The real shame is that it's so hard too find good looking feathers! I could only
find black ones.

some pics (ingnore my tired face, it is sunday...)

do you like it?

4  summer dress EDIT: close up shots of the bodice whooh in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Heike on: March 08, 2009 12:31:28 PM

i fell in love with this fabric at the store and at first did not know what to do with it. Then i realised it is the ideal summer dress fabric of course! I did not use a pattern for this one, used my head Smiley
i lined the inside of the bodice with black thick cotton for strength.

i'm sorry if this pic is a little too dark..it was getting dark as i took it.

edit: i added some close up shots! so you crafty chicas can figure out to make one of your own, the body consists of 6 pieces: one front, one back, and two side panels on each side. and a zipper aka the one thing i mess up always.

i was lazy and did not do the bias tape close to the zipper properly, so it bit me in the ass and started fraying in the washing machine...aw well.. shouldnt be so lazy!

this is the whole back

a close up of the back

aaaaaaand a close up of the front

please let me know if you girls have any questions or want to see more pics etc
