1  Re: Allsaints Celestina Skirt... <3 in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by apest on: August 10, 2011 01:28:04 AM
Thanks for the pictures!!

I think that the panel (at least those in front) have an uneven seam rising from one side to another like this draft. I counted seven panels all around the skirt, three in front and four in the back, so adjust the upper side of the panels according.

Meanwhile i received a message on flickr by Enchantedviolin that bought that skirt and explained
".... you are right, there are no pleats on the top or underskirt - the underskirt is made of triangle and rectangle panels and that is why it gathers and flares out at the bottom. It goes triangle, rectangle, triangle, rectangle etc so that the waist of the underskirt is flat and the same size as the overskirt but much, much wider at the bottom."

this in fact is really helpful, so in a bit of photoshop creativity i produced this draft also for undergown. I think that adding two triangles between rectangles will add up even more fullness at the bottom. Rectangles also are slanted. However I think I should carefully make a muslin playing with bottom circumference, as adding more and more fullness will reach the tutu effect and have too much fabric under the upper skirt (which seems a full circle one)

What do you think?

2  Anthropologie Caden Blouse in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by apest on: June 12, 2009 03:43:11 AM
So I'm in love with this nice blouse from Anthropologie site:

it shouldn't be so difficult to draw from a simple bodice, but I can't figure out how to insert pleats in the neckline without enlarging significantly also the front bottom.
any idea?

3  Cosplay - PIC OBESE!! Utawarerumono for Luccacomics 2008 in Italy :) in Costumes: Completed Projects by apest on: November 05, 2008 05:53:36 AM

I made all sewing stuff, brown dyed juta for shoes and so. My friend made the mask out from Das clay and the fan is made from cut stained steel pieces.

I also post two pics at the end of the post of my attempt of Cooking Mama light cosplay (The second pic with Tracy and Laura Hickman!! Cheesy )

Comments extremely wanted!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

4  Simplicity 4020 :) (two pics!!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by apest on: July 23, 2008 08:43:09 AM
Here I am, after an afternoon of tracing, resizing, cutting and sewing.

I recommend this pattern over and over, also on the view with no sleeves, it's so comfy that I've used many times last week when I was on holiday at the mountains.
Fabric is a medium weight jersey I bought on ebay, and has spots here and there of silvery freshness Cheesy

Sorry for the funny face (I just scratched my eyes because of some dust)
Comments? It's my third piece of clothing!!

5  Eruru cosplay, help on sleeves in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by apest on: April 08, 2008 06:50:02 AM

I'm planning to make this cosplay (Eruru from Utawarerumono-The One Being Sung) for a convention in October, I have a clear idea about the bodice and the beige apron, but I was a little confused about the sleeves.
The sleeves are attached to the under dress a plain sleeve near the armhole and descending large like a bell sleeve.
Assuming A is more or less a sleeve (sorry, no mouse at the moment, only notebook touch pad!), to get a full sleeve like the one in the pics above, do I have to cut straight down (B) or  alter from the elbow line large down to the wrist (C)? 

In the second pic it seems large also at the elbow, but I can't understand if it's only because she's skinny or the sleeve is baggy itself.
Hope this make sense.
