    The original design was supposed to be 50s inspired, since I thought it would go well with the fabric pattern. I switched it over to something lolita-like and had made various changes to the initia…

    >>> BUST – I think that you can take the Contour Bust pattern and replace the top center piece with a rectangle that is gathered along the sides and bottom, plus in the middle. >>> TOP (in general)…

    happycontagious commented on the project "Pink & Red"

    I’m sorry, but I don’t know if I can post a tutorial for this! I didn’t go off any pattern and just did it all off the top of my head. I re-did the skirt part about three times, I think. I’ll try t…

    0123100421-01_listing

    I love the fabric, but since it was found at the thrift store, there wasn’t much supply. I made the most basic skirt ever, and added a tiny pocket, big enough to hold my cellphone. I took that apar…

    0124100212-02_listing

    I used the pattern from “(Afternoon) Tea Top” posted by Ichigogirl. I still need to make adjustments for a better fit. I did decide to leave out the satin pleat along the top though. I was planning…

    happycontagious commented on the project Pajama Set
