Glitzy Flowers

Hi All,
I sewn yet another dress for my mom for a birthday party, the theme was black, gold and silver.

We hunted around The Fancy Silk Store and she found what she was looking for (eventually)!

I altered another dress I made using McCalls M6465 and flared it out, cutting it free handed.

Here the result

I made a matching tote bag but she stuffed it so much the handles ripped!

This fabric was fun to work with, it also cane in gold if anyone is interested.

Happy crafting!

Fendi Frills

Posted in Accessories, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 25, 2013 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I cam across this lovely accessory while browsing Kollabora, it’s a Fendi Frill inspired by the designer it’s named after. I thought these looked so bold but feminine and they’d go with dresses as well as shirts so I wanted to try the pattern (which is free).

Well, it’s fair to say I may have gotten carried away.

The punk/goth/Halloween frill (my favourite)!

I made this with what was left over from my Hood Rat Dress, I’d actually wear this one as it’s not too “in your face” and it suits my style. I’ll wear it with whatever colourful clothes I have (which isn’t many).

This is yellow, it didn't show up

This yellow frill is made from fleece, I like how the red thread stands out, and it feels so soft.

 

The Elf/Christmas frill

Now for the “Christmas Frill”, I originally wanted an all red frill but didn’t have enough felt in that colour so I thought I’d sew up some “Christmas spirit” (ugh… I know it’s early but I’ve typed it now!)

I can see more of these to come, they are quick and simple to sew and you can add whatever you want to them. You can finish the edges for a neater look. As I’ll be a cat for Halloween I want to stitch some cats on the black frill.

I’m also thinking about tiny baubles or buttons for the Elf frill.

I would like to see other people making these because there’s so much that can be done with these.
