1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Brown Alexander Henry Summer Dress on: May 28, 2009 12:07:21 PM
I make things but never post them. Boo.

I made this over the last two days. I don't have anything going on, I'm living with my husband in the in-laws house, so basically....there's not much else to do.
This is from Simplicity 3875, but I combined the two top/sleeve styles. I like the set in sleeve much better. And I'm in love with this fabric. : )
Also, please forgive me for these fugly photos.( I just woke up. Ha)

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I procrastinate posting- some dresses on: March 25, 2008 09:22:05 PM
I made these both FOREVER ago. I should probably post them though. ha.
The first is a teal stretch knit. I kind of messed up on the back. Sorry its so blurry!!

This was a New Look pattern. 6657 I think. Its labeled easy, and it really was. I kind of wish it was a little less full. But I used a kind of stiff linen. I plan on making it again with on of the variations, in a lighter fabric.

 please excuse how much of a joker i look like. ha.
3  UNITED STATES / Utah / Thrift stores in Central Utah? on: March 13, 2008 02:19:17 PM
Hey! I live in provo but i was looking for some thrift stores. I've been to the DI and Savers near here, but are there any ones that aren't so...mainstream? Even if they're way north like in Salt Lake, thats ok. I'm die-hard. Hahaha. Let me know!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making a Sulu / Lavalava / Tupenu? on: November 21, 2007 03:01:45 PM
Hey craftsters!

I want to make a sulu for my friend for christmas but I'm just not sure where to get started. For those of you that aren't sure what a sulu or tupenu is ( I didn't either until recently) it's a traditional (ish) garment worn in the polynesian islands instead of what dress pants. It's made out of a dress material and resembles what westerners call a skirt, which wraps around and ties on one side.

I found a few pictures here under 'tupenu':


Has anyone made one of these? Hahah, does any one know what these are?? I'm having trouble figuring out where to get started, or really how to tackle this. So if you've made one or similar, let me know!!

Much mahalo!!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ready for some Wintery weather on: February 16, 2007 08:40:54 PM
I got this teal THING at the thrift. It was shapeless, but so so soft. And it basically had the worst, most horrid shoulder pads ever. Ugh.
I took it in, shortened the sleeves and made them gathered and banded just to give them a little shape. Made it more fitted and of COURSE took out those darn shoulder pads. It became this. (PS, i'm not preg, just fat from winter. Ha, ew)(PSS- sorry they're blury, I guess i got excited, ha)

This was HUMONGOUS, seriously like a 3x. I just made it smaller and more fitted, the gathered raglan sleeves were a pain to figure out though. Silly me forgot to take a before sorry...(the belt's not part of it)

6  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Did anyone watch the "eyebrow transformation" on OPRAH?... A blue dress? on: December 28, 2006 03:18:55 AM
I just happened to be flipping through channels last night and came across a late night showing of Oprah but what really caught my eye was a dress that one of the guests was wearing. The segment was called "Shannon's Transformation: an eyebrow makeover" or something close to that. The dress was a blue and white "duro"style (I think) ...kind of kimono-esque. It was really cute and I was wanting to maybe recreate something similar but I can't seem to find any pictures of it.

Did anyone else see this or maybe know the dress I'm talking about?
Or know the designer? Anything?
