1  Maxi Dress Mission - Dress 2 - Purple Maxi in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by KylaStrong on: April 22, 2011 06:07:40 PM
I have started a Maxi-Mission.  I want to wear nothing but maxi dresses this summer.. I've got a lot of sewing in my future.

I based this dress off one I saw on Urbanoutfitters.com that was roughly 250$.  Here's a link to it: http://images.urbanoutfitters.com/is/image/UrbanOutfitters/18862417_036_b?$detailmain$

It's a bit more distressed looking and obviously the holes cut into it, I am thinking about doing that but don't want to perhaps ruin the dress.  Opinions and comments on this would be great.


Back - I tied the racerback with a tiny piece of scrap fabric, I think it looks pretty neat like this so I may sew it into place.

Again, comments on going for the more distressed look would be greatly appreciated!

2  Maxi Dress Mission - Dress 1 - Tribal Maxi in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by KylaStrong on: April 22, 2011 05:59:38 PM
I recently picked sewing back up, after a year or so break.  I fell in love with maxi dresses because they are so simple to throw on and you're ready with a couple accessories.  I have so many clothes that it often takes me forever to match a top with bottoms, thus why maxi dresses make my routine much quicker haha.

Thanks for looking!  Comments and critiques welcome.

3  Backless Formal Dress Questions in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by KylaStrong on: January 23, 2009 06:22:03 PM
I am in love with this dress:

But I am baffled on how to go about making it.  The front seems simple enough, but how would you make the back straps?  Would it have to be an elastic type of material so it stays up? Could I maybe use hook and eyes somehow?  Also, do you think it would need a zipper.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I'm at a loss here!

I love these!  I've been making them since I was a little girl Smiley  Here's some of mine I made last year, they are fun to decorate with glitter and what not haha.

5  Drab to Fab Fedora in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by KylaStrong on: September 21, 2008 07:28:40 PM
Very simple project.  I bought an extremely boring Fedora at K-mart tonight for only 10$ believe it or not.  It was too dull for my style, so I had to revamp it.  It came with a very cheesy faux leather trim.  I ripped the old trim off (it was hot glued...) and added a bright blue trim with a matching bow, accented with a decorative button. 

Finished product:

Before trim:

6  Cheezit Pillow Cases in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by KylaStrong on: September 21, 2008 12:35:03 PM
I've seen a couple of Cheezit projects around the internet.  A friend of mine is addicted to Cheezits, so naturally I had to make him these for his new house! 

(Note: These were made for HIS pillows, not mine.  The only pillow I have that somewhat fits into the case is round, hence the weird shape.)


Stuffed and un-stuffed cases:

I blanket stitched around the edges, to give the look of the indents that are on actual Cheezits, same number of them too!

7  Hugh Laurie (House M.D.) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by KylaStrong on: September 20, 2008 08:11:24 PM
I am secretly in love with Hugh Laurie.  Not only Hugh Laurie, but his character in House MD, Dr. Gregory House.  I started this painting a while ago, and just got around to finishing it.  It's acrylics on a canvas I stretched myself which is about 5ftx4ft.  I'm not sure if I'm too happy with this project.  I've been working on it for so long, that I can't tell if it actually looks like him or not.  I would love to hear everyone's opinions/comments/critiques. 


In progress:

Ruler for size:

and a picture of the man himself, for reference:

10  Simple Glittery Cupcakes in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by KylaStrong on: April 15, 2008 04:48:18 PM
These aren't really 'fine art' but I don't know where else to put them.  I got the miniature canvases at Pearl Paint supply store.  The 'sprinkles' have glitter on them.  Enjoy!

and for size reference (came out a little blurry):
