    b-ella added the project Ribbed Bustier Top
    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_15_26_2_listing

    I used a ribbed jersey fabric for this bustier. I like the way it turned out, but I think the pattern itself has very large holes for the arms, and is very low cut. I may make this top again, and I…

    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_15_23_listing

    I have this long sleeved American Apparel tee that I wear all of the time (http://store.americanapparel.net/product/rsa0316s.html#). It’s basically the most comfortable shirt ever, so I wanted anot…

    b-ella added the project Bright, Striped Kasia
    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_15_18_2_listing

    I found this fabric while I was traveling in Mexico. I loved the multi-colored stripes, and I was really into the idea of wearing it as a pencil skirt.

    I made it into a version of the Kasia. But…

    b-ella added the project Plaid Vogue Dress
    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_15_10_2_listing

    I used Vogue Pattern V828o for this dress (http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8280-products-6705.php). This was actually the second time I’ve tried to make this dress. The first time, the bodice ende…

    b-ella added the project Lightbulb Dress
    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_14_57_listing

    I found this waxed cotton fabric at AKN Fabric in Manhattan (http://www.aknfabrics.com/) and fell in love with it instantly. I mean, who was this brilliant human being who decided to put lightbulbs…

    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_14_46_listing

    I found this patterned fabric at AKN Fabrics in Manhattan (http://www.aknfabrics.com/). I’m not great at creating patterns, but I basically used a tank top I had to make a very simple tank dress pa…

    b-ella added the project Anda in Retro Synthetics
    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_14_49_listing

    I found this fabric at a thrift store for like 50 cents. There wasn’t much of it, but I loved what was there. I like the weird sort of quasi art deco pattern, mixed with some seventies flower power…

    b-ella added the project LBD in Silk (Upcycle)
    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_14_32_listing

    When I bought this dress at the thrift store, it was a t-shirt dress, in this amazing black silk, but was several sizes too big for me and down to my ankles. I turned it into a tank dress, shortene…

    b-ella added the project Jersey Cowl Dress
    Photo_on_2013-08-16_at_14_listing

    I love this fabric: it’s extremely soft and cozy. But I don’t love the way the dress itself fits and I think part of the problem is the fabric. It clings and drapes in the wrong way. Initially, the…

    thanks for your comment, and your advice on the corset top. sounds like a good idea, to start with a fitted base that works. i was a little nervous about how to make it a perfect fit with all of th…
