1  okay, so I'm addicted to sewing (4 tops in two days...)... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by astronautine on: May 28, 2007 06:54:57 AM
but I just can't stop it.

This red fabric was just so cute that I had to sew something of it. This is what it became,

The red sleeveless-top was kind of inspired by the dress that Beyonce wears in the "Deja vu" video. The pattern would be really great for a prom dress or something too, but unfortunalety we don't have a prom at our school and otherwise I wouldn't have an oppurtunity to wear something like that.

And the other one :

Can also be worn as a dress

Must stop sewing now ;-)...well till next weekend :-)

Love to hear some comments.

2  unfortunalety woman were slimmer in the 70's...[sorry the pics are really big] in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by astronautine on: May 27, 2007 02:49:26 AM
So I got this old Burda Magazine from the 1970's of my granny and decided to make a cute vintage-shirt.
 Usually I wear size 38/40, so I took that size, but... women in the 1970's must have been really slim.

 I could hardly get in the shirt and when I wanted to get out my mum had to help me. It took like 10 minutes and it really has hurt in the back, so in the end we had to cut it open. First I was really sad and thought that I'd have to throw it away, but then I thought about and found a solution. I've left open a large part of the back, so that it show now my beautiful back. And in the front it looks just as it should be.

Here are some views of the back.

Now, I love it. And I still got a lot of the fabric, so I'll make a really cute dress of that.

3  2 new summer tops in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by astronautine on: May 17, 2007 08:34:19 AM
hey guys,
I'm on holiday at the moment which means plenty of time to sew. So this is what I've made today, I guess other garments will follow within the next days ;-)

This top was inspired by some Prada tops of 2005 but unfortunalety I haven't found any pictures of them so far. It's made out of an old tablecloth that I got from my grand-ma and the buttons are spraypainted so that they look exactly like I want them.

This top kind of came into my head one evening. It's made by some leftover fabrics.

I really love them, how do you like them ?

4  you can't have enough jackets right ? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by astronautine on: May 13, 2007 07:41:58 AM
These are some of the jackets and waistcoats that I've sewn so far. All of them are done with Burda patterns from the magazine.
Has anyboday ever tried to sew jackets without a pattern ? I think that has to be really difficult.

great for summmer

5  people in school start being jealous...skirt,dress,top and waistcoat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by astronautine on: April 30, 2007 04:42:38 AM
all of them were done in the last weeks. Every morning somebody else asks "Have you done it yourself !?".

Everything is made with Burda patterns that I've changed in some little details.



I'm always open for comments.

6  Revamped granny shoes in Shoes: Completed Projects by astronautine on: April 30, 2007 04:20:52 AM
hey guys,
I made these shoes a year ago but I just recentyl found craftster.org.
My granny gave me some old shoes that she didn't need anymore.They fitted perfectly, we have to have the same feet  Smiley. But they were in a really odd colour, well you know such a beige, light-grey granny-colour. So I took the spray can of my brother and revamped them.
Here they are... after I took the pictures I added straps to hold the shoe around my ankle. Unfortunalety I still haven't brought them to  the cobbler to get a new gum heel, but anyway I can wear them at home.

Here are the links:

What do you think ?
