New Fabric Stash!

Posted in Miscellaneous, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 8, 2013 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I got some new print fabric delivered today which I have so many plans for, but I only got a metre… just in case.

I’m definitely buying this again!

I want to make a elastic waist skirt with this and a corset. I think I’ll do the skirt first.

I've been looking for decent star print fabric for a while...

I cut out another Sorbetto too from the fabric above, will post when done!

I also got some nice Chinese silk, got all of them from Chawlas’ Efabrics.

Happy crafting!

Polka Dot Nails

Hi All,

I got these (rather cheap) nails from Primark because they looked a little Christmassy and cute.

They got me think thinking about fabric and garments in a similar pattern.

I've wanted a dress like this for a long time.

What A Beautiful Life

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.

Cape instructions

Hi All,

I have a fascination with capes, all types and styles, so I was looking around for a simple hooded pattern.

I’ve made capes before but I always find myself looking for different ways to make them.

I came across this one a while back

Here’s the link http://diyfashion.about.com/od/costumes/ss/Make_a_Cape.htm

When I have time, I will create plenty of versions of this!
