1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Prom Dress.. necklines.. on: February 26, 2007 12:14:46 PM
I'm getting my prom dress made (because i don't feel competant enough yet to make it myself) and i'm stuck with how i'd like my neckline

the dress will be drop waist with a full circle/swing skirt. white satin with bright jewel coloured satin panels to add to the skirt's fullness..

i was thinking of a cowl neck - but would it be best to keep it simple on top if theres a lot going on at the bottom?

4  COOKING / Dessert / Horrors Cupcakes.... on: February 26, 2007 07:06:11 AM
my friends and I are rather obsessed with these young fellows:

so i made some cupcakes in dedication to them for a little party i was throwing Smiley

i was really happy with how they came out (especially as the cupcakes were so dinky)

[joshua's amazing hair was rather difficult to capture with icing Sad]

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Op-Art Dress on: February 26, 2007 06:58:23 AM
for my last art project i decided to look at the 60s and 70s and the art and fashion styles of those periods (without my sketch book the shape of the dress doesnt make sense... but if you could see thw whole thing.. you'd get it Smiley)

anyway, its rather poor considering i had just 12 hours to do all the painting, stencil making and prints and sewing.

heres how it turned out:

(i was quite proud of how my "glaring twiggys" came out Smiley)
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Post-it note dress. on: February 26, 2007 06:54:14 AM
I am a prolific doodler.
and one day i was doodling tiny squares and they started to form a dress shape.

which i then decided looked like postit notes..
i coloured it in highlighters

and then decided i was going to make the dress for real.

so far i've just done it on a mini scale.

i had to glue gun the majority of them down as first time round they had trouble sticking and the dress started to mault.

next step: full sized dress (and/or having the guts to wear it in public.)
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Flower Dress on: February 26, 2007 06:46:59 AM
last year for my AS project (natural forms) I decided to look at the book Fairie-Ality

using the books concept [clothes (for fairies) made from leaves, flowers, etc.etc.] i made this:

took me a good few hours sitting in the garden last summer - but i think it came out quite lovely Smiley

basically its all held together using sellotape Smiley
