1  Purple Patchwork Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: August 16, 2018 02:03:19 AM
I finally finished this, after working on it on and off for about a year!  Now I just need to wait for cooler weather so I can wear it!

2  Cameo pins in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: March 22, 2016 06:15:35 AM
I've stared messing around with buying jewelry supplies on etsy.  There are so many neat things to try!  Here are a few I made the other day:

3  Chokers I've made in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: January 20, 2016 11:43:16 AM
These were made mostly from stash material.  I did have to buy the cameo, setting, and clasps though, so maybe I'm not busting as much of my stash as I thought!

5  Need ideas for a neckline in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Ashling on: November 11, 2015 04:26:16 PM
I'm trying to take this pattern and make it into a top.  I want to do view A and cut it to a shirt length.

I'm not sure how I want to do the neckline though.  I think the stand up lace would be too itchy, but I'm not sure how I could replace it.  Leaving it plain seems like a bad idea as it would probably look weird.  The stand up collar option they include would probably look fine, but it might still bother my neck, plus I'm on the short side so it doesn't take much for stand up collars to be too tall. Thoughts?

6  Valentine Print Lolita Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: July 16, 2015 11:20:48 AM
I finished this dress a few days ago.  I got a whole bunch of the fabric about 2 years ago (I still have 5 yards! Shocked ) and knew I wanted to make a Lolita dress with it, but it took some time for me to decide how I wanted to do it.  I also reconstructed the blouse underneath to make it fit and added the lace.

Close up of the front:

And here's the shirring on the back.  It took a little but of fussing with it, but I was able to make it so the whole bodice was lined, even with the shirring.  It still has a side zipper, it was too hard to put on with just the elastic, but it still makes it fit a whole lot better.

7  Valentine Print Lolita Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: March 01, 2015 06:19:15 AM
I had two weeks of vacation time I needed to use up before April, but am too poor to go anywhere and my husband used up all his vacation time anyway.  So what did I do?  Stay home and make a skirt it's too cold to wear!  I used some Valentine's Day print fabric from Joann's (which is now half price!) and this tutorial for the half-elastic waistband: http://egl.livejournal.com/14270972.html

8  Convertable Mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by Ashling on: April 17, 2014 10:23:44 AM
They're 100% baby alpaca, and so soft!  I started these last month in an attempt to make winter end before I finished.  I wore them once a few days ago though!

Thank you!

It's lace with ribbon woven through it on the front.  I took a close up picture in daylight to show it better, my phone doesn't do well with the low light levels we have at night.

And here's an awkward selfie!

10  Knit Peasant Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: January 17, 2014 03:34:32 PM
I started this last summer, but I've finally gotten the chance to finish it!  I ended up hand sewing a lot of it, the thin knit fabric did not get along with my sewing machine.  That made it take a whole lot longer than I anticipated.  But now it's done and I'll have a nice new shirt to wear once it gets hot again.
