Since I'm away at college now and own no sewing machine...I've been giving hand-sewing a try! It's a total pain, but I've persevered and now I have a tiny neck-piece thing to show for it.



This was a project full of "let's cut here and see what happens" moments. For once, that didn't lead to disaster.

The front:


The back:


The fabric!!! I used some rose-patterned black fabric for the front. The back and ruffles are lightweight plum jersey. And the black lace is the selvage of some nice thick lace I used to make a shrug jacket (which I'll post pretty soon, as I looove it). The burgundy ribbon was in my stash.


Next time I make one of these, I want to make it just a little shorter and narrower so that it has a tighter fit. And I think I'll use some interfacing so it's not as floppy. Still, I'm pleased with the result. What do you guys think?

Ooooh, very nice. Just one ickle thing though... couldn't that double as a lolita headdress? I dunno about the sizes, but if it does you have one very cute and verstile accesory. Love it.

Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone!! Smiley

skull+crossbonesstitch: When I finished it, I thought the same thing! So I plopped it on my head -- but was too long to be a lolita headdress. It practically covered my ears. So it's like...a gothloli earmuff headdress? Cheesy Great for cold weather, no matter how I wear it.

oooh, lovely! I've started on a bit of a neo-victorian/steampunk obsession, something like this will help it along nicely! I've got lots of scraps of fabric rather similar to the rose-patterned fabric you used and have been wondering what to do with the little strips of it!
