::goth dress::
onlyinjapan

First completed project of May!! I finally got lining for the bodice of the dress on Wednesday. That night I got the bodice completed inbetween episodes of NCIS (I love Abby!). Yesterday the skirt came together in 2 hours (maybe sooner?) I *really* like the dress! Sooo happy with how it came out.

So the bodice is held close with hook and eye tape (I wanted to do it this way, but Alyssa liked the tape hidden) and the skirt is left open. It's meant to be worn over skinny jeans or tights. I'm already planning to make another one too! The new one will be white with black lace over it, something like this but instead of fishnet, lace). I don't know what color to do the lining in...? Black? White? Suggestions are welcome!

I will be repeating the "corset lacing" in the back, and this time I'll line the skirt too. I don't like how you can see the seams on the inside of the skirt. And besides, if like the wind catches the skirt it'll look soo much better to see lining than the seams ^_^;;
 

::close up of the corset lacing::peek at the lining:: I really like how the brick-red color looks with the black. I was a little worried when I picked it up at JoAnn's. I tought I should have gotten a more blod red color, but I'm really happy with the first choice :3

Rosie!!! I think this would look TOTALLY cute on you with my boots you stole borrowed; maybe to wear to club?? =]

A  few more pictures can be found on my flickr page. As always, C&C is always welcome!! Let me know what you think =D I gotta go work on turning this sketch into a wearable outfit. ^_______^

::WIP::Goth dress
onlyinjapan
Thanks everyone for your nice comments on my previous post! Now I'm really excited about making the costumes!

I'm finally getting back into my groove of things since the Break Up (Rusty still isn't talking to me, I think I've lost my friend forever) in regards to my sewing. I began making a dress for Alyssa. See below for the pictures of the test piece:


Front of the dress


Dress back

The front is closed with hook and eye tape (that will be sew to the front and not pinned so the pulling wont be there) and the back is going to have faux corset lacing down the back. The actual tape of the d rings will be hidden in the seam:


Back of the bodice.

Excuse the electric blue ribbon. It's the only thing I had on hand. Nice, ne??

So far I have most of the bodice taken care of. It's fully lined, and instead of using a nice (thin) lining like I should have, I used the fashion fabric...BIG mistake. I can turn it right side out to form the should straps. >Damn!!!</big>

LOL So I'm going to take it apart and get some real lining in a few days. I have the skirt done and hemmed, so once I redo the bodice I'll attach it to the skirt and be done!! I'm going to be making another version of the dress in hite with black lace over the top. I might skip on the corset lacing in the back. Ideas??

I'll be posting pictures of the completed dress in a few days. =D†

::Project Steampunk::
onlyinjapan
So, many, many months ago I planned on participating in Sac City's Steampunk fashion show, but it ever happened. I had to take a semester off, and decided instead of getting my degree in Costume Design, and then *hoping* to get a job, I'm going to school for Medial Coding, where I *know* I can get a job. But... I still wanna make the costumes!!

My cousin Alyssa came over a couple of weekend ago, and did the sketches for me!!


::Rosie's Costume Design::

For Rosie I'm planning:
::Mini skirt that swoops up into a bustle train::
::Over bust corset top::
::Shrug with Mandarin collar::
::Thigh high spats::

Her color theme will be black and red (of course) with maybe accents of white

Ellis, Josie, and other sketches behid the cutCollapse )

So what does everyone think?? I don't know if I'm going to make everything, but I think I might! I'm really looking forward to making the corsets!! I've been doing a lot of research and reading on different techniques about what kinds of boning to use, etc. Once I get some more money in I'm going to get the corset supplies I'm missing (bones and busks) and at least start on them.

I'm planning another sewing post for tomorrow, but this one is mainly normal clothes I've made for my friend Amy....AND I'll be posting about the new embroidery machine I got!!!! (EXCITED!) OH! and I still have to post about the kimono top I made for Alyssa.

Well...let me know what you guys think!!! <3 And I hope to see everyone on Saturday <3 <3 <3

Rusty and I broke up and aren't talking.

I'm sorry for all the pain I caused Rusty and hope we can mend our friendship.

I don't know how I feel.

Sorry to everyone since I haven't been around for a while. I gotta do some soul searching and get back to the old happy Cammy.

I miss and love all of my friends.
