Weekday sewing project.
I’ve been sewing again. Mostly as a way to procrastinate school.
Anyhow, this friday, instead of working on homework, I made this crop top from a couple items in my closet that don’t fit anymore.
The yellow fabric: this was a high waisted pencil skirt that I’ve had in my closet since about gr.11. Unfortunately, it was shaped in a very unflattering way, so I rarely wore it, despite loving the fabric.
The red fabric: a pair of H&M pants I bought a year ago that never really fit right.
The pattern: I used a pattern that was available for free download a while ago from here. It was in portuguese & didn’t seem to have any measurements for sizing. So I totally guessed which size would fit me & fortunately I was right! I used the front, side & pieces of the pattern & then fiddled with the back to get it to be what I wanted. It was a fun exercise for an afternoon & will be perfect for warm summer days.
If you were curious, here’s what the original pattern looked like:
SELECT PICTURES FROM THE PIZZA PUNKS PIZZA PARTY!!
Thanks to everyone who came out and ate my pizza! That would be… Kirsten, James, Ben, Madeline, Alison, Kathleen, Colin, Eric, Joel and everyone else who wasn’t photographed (PLZ, Brian, Rena, Ryan, Chad) or doesn’t have tumblr!!!
Thank you Nathan, for the opportunity to abuse the Couch Gallery space, as well as Fire Pizza, for giving me a deal on the pizza we ate and of course, Kirsten- for helping me set up, take down and just about every thing else in between. More photos of the show to come.
This was fun. Cole is rad. Go check out his comics.
I’ve been doing these comics for three years now, and this feels like the NOW OR NEVER moment to make a cool book of them happen. I’ve got some fun rewards up for grabs - and…
Man, Kathleen Jacques rocks & her comic is absolutely fantastic. 11/10 would recommend funding this.
Yeah. It doesn’t really snow here much. Except it’s been snowing non-stop all weekend. Please I don’t want to go to my monday class.
Goofy lil thing done for my illustration class. The assignment was to write a 5 panel, wordless narrative about an inanimate object without anthropomorphizing it. & the colour pallet was restricted to 3 colours.
