11  Nana and Papa's Nursery in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by SnowfallDesigns on: August 01, 2007 03:37:44 PM
With my nephew about to turn 1 year old and both of my sisters pregnant, my mom wanted to turn my old bedroom into the nursery.  I didn't have to do much - I had painted it before I moved out (about 5 years ago) and decided to try my hand at stenciling the walls! 
My inspiration for the stencils came from the book "Organic Baby" by Kimberly Rider.

Here are the sencils I made, which killed my fingers to cut! -

And here's the finished product!

(I need to take my paint mixing poster home!)

This is the wall where I'm going to stencil the names of each grandchild as they are born (Lillie is due in October and Cecilia is due in January!)

12  Jersey tunic with flower applique!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SnowfallDesigns on: June 27, 2007 11:27:14 PM
I just got finished making this
It is cotton jersey and my own pattern - soo simple to make.
I've had this jersey knit for about 7 years and so far have made a skirt, shorts, pants, long jacket, and now this shirt!  I don't wear the skirt or jacket anymore though.
The applique fabric were squares and scraps that all came from my grandma.

Full shot

Applique detail

I'm going to wear it tomorrow!!  Yippee!

13  sunset and stairway in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by SnowfallDesigns on: June 25, 2007 01:48:58 PM
Alright, so it's been a few years since art classes but here is my final drawing for the drawing course I took.  It is one of the staircases in the admissions building on campus...

The shading looks a bit off because of the flash but I just loved the details of the railing.  My favorite part of working on this was the comments and questions from the groups of people leaving for campus tours who would walk by me, sitting in the corner of a landing on the floor! 

This one is my first oil on canvas I've done in a really long time (I think my last one was like 8 years ago) so I didn't make it too complicated - it took me long enough to get up the gumption to start a simple landscape!

Any comments/suggestions are appreciated!  Again, I haven't done much art in awhile so I know my work isn't great but I'm trying to work on it a bit more.  I've been devoting a lot of my time to selling my clothing instead.

Here are a few of my favorites I've done....

A lot of pics, I know but I have lots of favorites I guess!

15  1950s day dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SnowfallDesigns on: May 04, 2007 01:51:03 PM
This is my first challenge I've entered!
I made a 1950s style day dress in cotton, fully lined, with a lower ruffle for fullness, and boning. 
It's pretty hard to see the details but the most upper part of the bodice is sew pleats as well as pleats under the bust and on the waist. 
I was going to make a jacket to go with it but I ran out of time!
I get to wear this to a teaparty themed bridal shower tomorrow!  So excited!

Here's a pattern that you could start with
Butterick 4665

The larger collar and buttons are simliar - you could always extend the collar out.

Another for inspiration

I love the fabric of the one I got so I finally got around to taking a picture - I look terrible and the dress makes me look pregnant but this is the easiest way to wrap it - imo.

The bottom fabric has cute little flower and butterfly shapes.

19  Re: knee length jacket - crazy print!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SnowfallDesigns on: April 25, 2007 09:45:17 AM
Wow! do I look tall?? Yay!.... Okay.... I'm 5'4" too!  Kiss
If you pay attention to Stacey and Clinton (sorry, watching What Not to Wear right now) then a knee length jacket doesn't work for shorter gals like us...I tend to disagree though!  As long as it has some shape it looks cute.  And you can always wear heels!
Here's a pic (though quite shoddy) of an outfit I like with the jacket!  Sorry about the really messy closet!

Okay, bear with me here...

Start with this pattern

View D

Front piece:
You may need to shorten the width of the front overlap and move the botton holes to make it look more like the jacket you are looking at, but it will give you an idea of the shape of the front piece.

You can use the pattern's collar and make it a bit more square.  Possibly make it a bit longer as well, then add the buttons.

I don't think there are pockets in this pattern but they are simple to add - just leave a slot open between the front and side pieces and add the pocket (look at a hoodie or something you have for an idea on how to put in the pocket.)

Bottom gather:
It looks to me like a separate piece.  An easy casing with a wide elastic.

If you want to use this pattern as a guide and make the upper back one piece by connecting the pattern pieces. Cut the piece in two at the upper mid back and make the lower back a few inches wider so it can be gathered.

Does this make any sense??  I have it all in my head but have trouble explaining it so if you want to ask specific questions, I can help some more!
