Made from exactly one skein of Lion Brand Microspun in French Vanilla. Stitches used are broomstick lace (modified) & good ol' single & double crochet. Completely winged, therefore no available pattern, sorry!
I've decided to turn this into a let-me-talk-about-my-life blog as well as a craft blog for those times where I feel like writing something. Though it will still mainly be a craft blog.
But anyway, WHO ELSE IS AS EXCITED FOR THIS AS I AM??
I also have to apologize for the poor picture quality. The family camera is an inch away from death.
& one more thing I should mention: In celebration of turning 18, I opened up an eBay account. Just because I can now. I'm planning on selling some handmade items (along with old clothes, bags, accessories, & whatever else I can find) on there sometime in the near future. When I get that started, I'll let you know.
Enjoy! headband by natiux. I made these in the time it takes to watch Back to the Future & Top Chef.
Both headbands were made with Patons Classic Wool Merino in Dark Grey & used single, double, and front-cross stitches. The first I embellished with beads from a broken necklace. The second I paired the grey yarn with Lion Brand Trellis in Copper Penny. They tie in the back for a more snug fit.
I made it straight out of my head, I had no time to draft a pattern. But it was fairly simple. The fabric is a lurex blend I ordered from fabric.com about a year ago. My only regret with this one is I wish I had made it for my own prom.
It didn't come out perfectly, but it was alright for my first pencil skirt. & a bitch to walk in.
Inspired by Vera Wang. I don't know the name of the fabric I used for the bust, but it has a beautiful floral design embroidered in. I had to interface it to help hold it's shape. The waistband is made up of green velour with some trim on top. The skirt is a golden satin material covered by sheer black chiffon.
All in all, the materials cost about $30 in downtown LA's Fashion District. & the time it took, well, I'll just say it took a lot of time.
