Oh, and my mommy made the little purse thingy for me from the extras.

^I'm pretty sure we used the same pattern, except i had to tie knots in  the straps cuz i'm at a loss for boobies.

The dress came out OK, but the sash around the middle could have been better in the front. I looked nice from the back though. lol.


Here's a nice butt shot:

Wow, those are sweet. I like that the tongue is still white, but maybe silver laces? Great job on making rainbow/tie-dye look cool. My boyfriend would LOVE those shoes.

Ew. I hate manuals. Not enough colors.

For me, my mom taught me how to actually use the sewing machine and the basics of sewing, but for actually techniques and things forums like this have been really helpful. Remember, sewing is like anything else: driving, drawing, sports. Practice makes perfect (or close enough), and don't go too fast your first few times around.

For the first fabric i'd go for the woven cotton, not only because it's not stretchy but because most times it's harder to see where previously removed stitches have been  Wink.

You don't have to make clothing either. I'd sugest starting with a and easy bag because you can make some pretty simple bags that still look really cool with inexpensive fabric.

Alright, so i'm a little early for prom but since i'm a master procrastinator, i'd better get an early start.

So last year's prom was sort of a disaster. So i spend almost $200 on this wonderful dress and i get to prom and 2 other girls have the exact same dress. Bad for me, worse for them (I was a junior, they were seniors). I don't want for that to happen again so this year i'm really gonna do it, i'm going to make my own dress.

Here's the sketch i've come up with:


The black and white sketch next to it is the back. The body proportions are a little off for my figure (I have no boobs), but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to get this started, because pattern-wize, i have no idea what to do. I've sewn some things before (with patterns) so i'm not a complete novice.

 It'll have a really flowy skirt with that gold (-thing?)  tightly wrapped under the bust. I think my main problem would be the top of the dress, like how to give it some form or stiffness (= gives me some shape).
