Good job! I like it and your "Just do it" attitude.

Oh my gosh! That's so not from a sheet! That is a really great creation of a dress! I love the full(?) skirt and the New York City theme. That dress sets the standard for cheap chic sewing!

I like the belt. That is nice funky fabric. You've reminded me that belts can be sewn from fabric! Doh!

It's really cute. Jumper's are alwyas cute.
You could always go back and line it...I think....
What pattern did you use?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Corny shirt - first ever finished clothing on: November 04, 2006 04:25:19 PM
Opened Collar
Closed Collar
This shirt is my first completed garment ever! And I made it in less than 12 hours straight! (That's sad...)  And most of all it looks like a shirt!!

I made it the night before Halloween as part of a costume for my boyfriend for Halloween. (Yeah, it's a costume, but it's not really a costume, it's just a shirt...) I never finished the costume because I ran out of time (4am on Halloween day is about as late as I will work!)  The costume was supposed to be Barth from You Can't Do that on Television. So I was going to make the chef hat and apron, but never got to that part the shirt took so long.    So my boyfriend wound up going as an interpretation of an ear of corn. Check out the olive drab green pants. The shirt he is wearing under it is for the most recent Marine Corp Marathon we both finished on Sunday 10/29. So I was recovering from running 26.2 the day before. It's our 3rd marathon!  

The shirt is made out of a cotton cloth from JoAnn's with corn cob print all over it. You know, corny! Pretty interesting print anyway! It uses McCall's M2233 pattern, which is an outfit for a chef (perfect for the would-becostume.)  The pattern did give me trouble. It didn't mention that you had to do the same thing on the edge of both front pieces, but I figured it out eventually.  Some parts were confusing. After a certain point I just went full steam ahead and just did what made sense according to the pattern. It's amazing how if you just follow the pattern it just makes sense rather than reading it and trying to figure it out in your head.  At a certain point I stopped basting, like it said to do. It got me into trouble once when I sewed fabric together incorrectly, but otherwise pinning was ok.

Yes, the shirt is not even at the bottom.  I'm just surprised it wasn't worse. Like the buttons actually fit together! The back made me totally believe the major issue of cutting perfectly on the fabric grain! The back hangs a little off, but I definitely notice it.

The buttons  and buttonholes were all done on my sewing machine Huskystar C20.  The machine can be unkind sometimes, but it definitely did the job.

Everyone at my boyfriend's job loved the shirt. However, I beg to differ. Fortunately, the print hides the crooked sewing. And whatever other oddities one could find.

I'm really proud that I did it since this is the only real sewing I've done in a while. I have started a skirt and shorts, but never finished. (The only other thing I've completed was pillows and bean bags all over 10 years ago!)  I can't want to do other things. Maybe even finish the stuff I never completed!  Next time...I will not overestimate my ability and underestimate time  Roll Eyes

Very authentic looking!  I love retro/vintage clothes. The more authentic the better. It takes me back to a time....that I wasn't alive!  But wish I could look on like a bird! Mmmmm...old clothes!

That is a really nice top. The silkyness of the fabric shows through in the pictures. It must be really comfortable to wear!
