1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a tutorial on: May 11, 2012 11:03:51 AM
Hey Smiley

Was just hoping some one could help me out.  I've been invited to go out in fancy dress next weekend, and I've decided to go as a zebra.  Only problem is I'm not quite sure how to make the costume....  I was thinking of making it cave girl-esque,  maybe either a one sleeve dress or shorts and a bralet top.  I was just hoping some one could point me in the direction of a useful tutorial or just give us some advice??

Also all this will be hand sown as I no longer have a sowing machine at uni Sad

Thank you! Smiley

I was just wondering what you guys use for bag straps
I'm taking about in general here,
I sometimes use ribbons (but they don't feel strong enough,)

Basically I was just wondering if you guys had an useful information when it comes to making handles for bags
Thank You

So recently I've gotten a job,
And weridly it's given a burst of energy,
And all i wanna do is make make make,
Also summer is just around the corner and I have no dresses

So after finding this tut

Out of cheap (99p) curtains

Mid shot,

The skirt

(It's not wonky it just appears it)

I'm so pleased with it  Cheesy
This was my first time attaching a zipper,
And although I forgot to add a picture of it,
I adore the stiching on the zipper,
And for once its straight lol

And please tell me what you think

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Mummy,, There's animals around my crotch (Pic heavy) on: April 01, 2007 11:26:32 AM
I've noticed alot of people have lately been making circle skirts,
Thought I'd have a go at it,
Seen astho it's turning into skirt wearing weather and I only seem to have one skirt =[

I found this adorable fabric for 99p per metre,
And thus had to make a skirt from it =]
So here it is,,,





And finally,,
The front

The Back

I'm soo pleased with it =]
It's just a wee bit big around the waist but I'll soon sort that out
(First skirt I've ever made =])
Oh and sorry bout the longness of the post
Please excuse what I'm wearing lol

Recently give me these,,


2 problems tho,,

1- He is a rather large character, against petite me, so the pants are slightly balloonish on me,

2- I would like to make the pants into a skirt, posaiable a 'circle' skirt,
  - Hmm I'm not a huge fan of short tight skirts,,
  And from previous attempts of making skirts from jeans (aged 9) cutting from the crotch just doen't work,,

So any help would be grateful


Sorry if this is in the wrong place,,
