1  bday explorer dress! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by bombgirl on: April 30, 2008 09:27:14 AM
It was the boy's niece's bday recently. and since i've taken it upon myself to adopt his family and intrude on all their family activities, and because she's the cutest human baby thing i've ever seen, i thought it was fitting to make her a dress.

i had this really cute fabric that i'd bought last summer that i've been trying to find something to do with

i made it a bit big so no pics yet of her wearing it. it was some mccalls pattern. or simplicity...i think mccalls...
anyway uber easy. and i actually took the time to do blind hems since it was a gift

i got lazy with the buttons and tried to use my machine. which would've worked if i hadn't stepped on the foot pedal and snapped the button. sigh



button close up (i like them; i think they match nicely. though it was a hard choice between these and hot pink ones):

2  snakier than thou! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by bombgirl on: April 30, 2008 09:18:19 AM
sooo the boyface loves snakies. and is really into snakey skelingtons of late
and was having a terrible time going to school so i thought i'd make him a congrats! half way done! package
I made him 3 snakey shirts (and cupcakes but i ate those so...yeah...)

the day before i gave them to him he showed up wearing a new snakey shirt he had just made...i was unimpressed

here's one of them. i like this shot too it's very 70s rock in my mind

4  tank top - yeah thats right i'm pretending its summer in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bombgirl on: March 29, 2008 04:17:43 PM
sooo it's end of maaarch and there's quite a lot of snow on the ground. like a lot. like i tried to put out the compost today and the bin is buried under 3 feet of snow. but spring is coming! i know because the car on my boyfriend's street that actually was so covered in snow that all you could see was one side mirror? well i can see part of the hood now! it's rusty.

but yes anyhoo i decided I really wanted tank tops anyhow. and i found an awesome simplicity pattern. I am too lazy to turn around and get the number for you however so yeah...

I originally made this pattern in a really nice ribbed pink fabric. twas beautiful and i was in love with it. but for some reason when i washed and dried it it grew like 3 sizes and now doesn't fit me. it was a depressing discovery.  The next one i made (the one photo's here) is nice but the material is a tad clingy so...need to fix my leggings (why WHY do pattern companies size things so so weirdly. their idea of the standard woman is just creepy. why WHY would I have a 20" waist and 10" ankles!?!? HONESTLY!)

my cat's ass as he licks the soap (I have no idea)

my standard "i don't know what to do with my arms....oh god i'm awkward" pose. seriously what do you do with your arms?!?!

close up of ruching on the collar. I was pretty proud with how that turned out

5  orange my one and oooooonly i can't wait till i wear yoooou agaiiin (IMG heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bombgirl on: July 19, 2007 08:26:14 PM
aw so my fridge broke and flooded my whole kitchen and all i had to clean up the whole mess was one small not very absorbant sponge
but BUT i did not freak out or even get upset and for me that's a huge HUGE deal because I cry over EVERYTHING

i'm going to thank my recent sewing spell for my new zen

this shirt I made I drafted the pattern myself. It's my first time drafting a full bodice and my first time working with jersey. it didn't turn out fully wonderful - there's a gap in the back neck and i don't know why. and the hem band thingie didn't work that great and it's a bit too loose at the bottom and the cowl isn't draping all that wonderfully but I like it Tongue

my superhero pose

dark and flashless I know. i'll fix the levels tomorrow. i need to sleep before 12 tonight. can see the cowl better in this one

it's weird because as I took the pic (and this happens often) i had a clearly perceptable smile on my face, slight but still there yet in the photos nothing

as always comments appreciated and i'll love you forever for them (and just for being you)

6  jumper on the bandwagon (photo alert!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bombgirl on: July 18, 2007 06:19:22 AM
Alright I tried making a jumper style tank top
I'm still not sure how I feel about it...it makes me look a tad preggo i think

the idea was for the horizontal striped band to work as a bust enhancer and then the vertical stripes to have a slimming effect of my paunch but i feel like it slides up a bit

next time i think i might try making the band a bit wider
anyway here it is:

with waistband beltage:

no beltage (my least fave):

hip beltage:

boobie beltage:

thoughts and comments always appreciated

7  dart help! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by bombgirl on: June 17, 2007 11:59:56 AM
ok so everytime i make a dart, it doesn't lie flat
it makes a little pouchy thing instead
i make teh dart slightly curved, sew right off the edge, iron flat and still end up looking like i'm wearing parachute pants or whatever
