Currently I'm working on a never ending petticoat. Then on to spats. Smile

I'm at that icky stage of making the frock coat..... the sleeves aren't that much of a problem.... but right now, I just can't get motivated to draft, make and sew the coller.... once I get over that "hump" the rest of the project will fall into place......(well... I don't like hand sewing button holes either...)

I look at it at get mad at myself.... I know one afternoon, I'll just get it all done...(does anyone else here growl at projects?)... so in the meantime... I'm working on a canvas carpet bag.... (well the best part isn't the sewing , but how I want to paint one side of it....)

why thank you! funny thing is it cost me almost nothing to make them and so far ive had offers to buy them for 20 dollars or more (nope not gonna sell them sorry)

and yes asymmetry is the goal. so the other key will be similar in size but not the same exact key type Smile

Post  Miss Gaslight on Wed Oct 22, 2008 5:58 am

So I went absolutely mad at joanne because all their sari fabric was 50% off and I got six different colors of the stuff. As I was thinking of something to go with my Nautilus themed top hat and I thought a female version of Nemo might be fun so 15 mins and lot of pins later I came up with this.
Spoiler:
The front panel will be thinner and go to the floor and I have smaller buttons with filigree to use. I am not entirely sure about the drape. I think maybe it needs to be longer.
This is very close to fabric porn and less washed out than the first one.

Post  Mrs. Sullivan on Wed Oct 22, 2008 11:10 pm

Ms. Boo's post reminded me of an abandoned bustle overskirt project that is languishing in my closet. I tried to make a bustle/overskirt out of an old curtain- the bustly-y part in the back looks good, but I can't figure out what to do with the front. I used a shorter "apron" type piece that I intended to drape in the front, but it just doesn't look right. I also put in a tunneled elastic waist, and once you put on petticoat & bloomers, skirt & overskirt, it is just too much bulk around the waist! I am thinking about removing the front apron part and making a regular, flat button-on waistband to replace the elastic. Any thoughts?

currently mine is in the works. i havent yet decided what im going to do with the front. mine is intended to look sort of ragged and drab. so i may very well leave the front as it is. as it stands here are a few views heres the front:

here is the back:

its not done. eventually i will add on some little tiny torn ribbon bows. and possibly some old moth eaten lace. sorry for the blurriness... my battery was about dead and i didnt know it Razz Embarassed

I found the ultimate Victorian skirt fabric today. Taffeta with little ruffles all the way down it. I got some in black and purple because the purple matches something I already have almost exactly. Now I have to somehow make time to make the skirt before Thursday night!

I know I am hopping to get my nemo skirt done before a party on Thursday but I am too sleepy to keep working on it tonight. Maybe I can get a bit done before work tomorrow.

I finished a godzilla costume for a friends little boy.

had to rush since it was for yesterday he didnt tell me until thursday that I had a week less to finish it than I thought!

the head came out rather huge, more a Tyranosaurus size.

Excellent job, Ms. Dreadful! Your cuffs are full of girly WOOT!

I'm making a straitjacket, something like this:

http://i70.servimg.com/u/f70/13/20/10/80/strait11.jpg

Except it's in an off-white canvas with brown, leather straps and a crotch strap. I may put a "Champion City Asylum" insignia on it (in reference to the Mystery Men movie).

Will post photos later.

thank you ever so! hehe i spend alot of time throwing people off... i enjoy people thinking im a girly girl then pick them up and walk off with them! (ever soon a women holding up a 200 pound man whilst wearing a ball gown?)

by the by odd thing, i saw a straight jacket at my local fav thrift store! i kid you not. came from one of the hospitals locally that just closed down their phyc ward. if it wasnt for the fact that they wanted 50 buck for it i think i would have bought it!
