My Sorbetto Top

Posted in Miscellaneous, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , on September 26, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I came across a post at http://reddthreads.wordpress.com which had a free sorbetto top pattern by collette.

I have made two unfinished tops and I am starting another, here are some fuzzy pics (sorry).

I haven’t put binding on any of these yet

The pleat is a little wonky here.

Damn fuzziness! I like this one as it look simple. I may use orange binding and buttons down the pleat.

Here’s a layout for my latest sorbetto.

And fabric

So do go visit http://www.coletterie.com for more lovely patterns.

Hi All,

I completed another baby cardigan a week ago and put some cute buttons on
(I’m doing this on my phone so please forgive the quality).

I’m going to do some bootees to match.

Stay busy!

A Dress For Mom

Posted in Miscellaneous, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , on September 18, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I have sewn a few dresses for my mom and they turned out better than expected.

Here’s just one of three, one is a w.i.p, hey! I said wip (work in progress)

S (my mom) picked the fabric.

 

Back view of dress.

S was wearing a pink mohair cardigan she knitted years ago, it matched nicely… should have taken a pic of it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Polka Dot Skirt: Completed

Hi All,

I have photos of the skirt I sewn for my sister, this is her modelling it 🙂

X was pleased with it when I gave it to her (although it doesn’t look so here lol)

 

These were shot outside our house as the lighting was better, more projects to come.

Hi All,

I have been doing a few designs involving star print fabric when I came across this website

http://www.spoonflower.com/welcome

It’s a site where you can create your own fabric as well as buy some that have been created by others.

I wondered onto the skull and anime sections which I have ideas for already.

Deadly Nightshade Hawaiian Quilt ( with bonus pillow fronts for larger bolts)  DOTD skulls black medium size  Skull Candy Box Pink

The green and purple would look nice as a scarf or a handkerchief top.

Here’s a tetris fabric and skirt made with it

    Tetris Border Print

My absolute favourite this one!

Icons of the Silver Screen

I could make some many things from this fabric, can you name all the characters here?

P.S. I’ve completed the polka dot skirt I made for my sister, will post very soon!

What A Beautiful Life

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I would like to share with you a fashion website I am TOTALLY obsessed with at the moment, the fact that I’m penniless is not helping at all!

This is a website I liked on facebook for a while, they sell clothes for pretty much every occasion such as:

Wedding dresses

Satin Organza Ball Gown Strapless Chapel Train Bridal Dress With Side Appliques  Satin Organza Ball Gown Strapless Sweep Train Bridal Dress With Embroidery Fresh Satin Chapel Train Empire Strapless Wedding Dress With Embroidery Queen Style Cap Sleeves Satin A-Line Wedding Gown With Luxurious Beadings

 

They do prom dresses too.

Fabulous Strapless Pleated Wrapped Satin Prom Homecoming Dress  Royal Beading Embroidery Satin Organza Prom Dress With See Through Wrap  Retro Burgundy Strapless Ball Gown Satin Prom Dress  Brown Ruched Bottom Floor Length Taffeta Prom Dress

 

But my absolute favourite are the lolita dresses, coats and outfits!

Square Empire Knee-length Cotton Gothic Lolita Dress With Ruffles   Low Cut Empire Knee-length Cotton Gothic Lolita Dress With Oblique CuttingAdorable Black Wool Long Sleeves Women's Lolita Outfit Black Cotton Long Sleeves Turndown Collar Lolita Blouse With Lace Trim

I know there are a lot of photos but there are so many to chose from.

They also do costumes, mascot outfits and evening dresses, here’s the website http://www.whatabeautifullife.com/ .

Until next time bloggers.
