gloves complete (Posted 7th May 2012)

i finally finished my gloves!!! i made the pink sleeves seperate and added the extensions to the gloves

stocking complete (Posted 7th May 2012)

here thet are completed! the gold wings are made out of pink suede that i painted gold with fabric paint and then sewed on, they are a tiny bit too long which is why they look a little bit baggy around my knee. i will play around with then a bit to make them better.

stocking progress 2 (Posted 7th May 2012)

next i sewed on the other details arounf the tops and bottom of the stockings. i then painted the zig zag pattern on the gol strip

stocking progress (Posted 7th May 2012)

i started making my stocking by cutting out a pattern on paper that was the right size to my leg, i did front and back pieces, i then sewed the ribbon down the leg.

bag progress complete (Posted 4th May 2012)

i finally added the rest of the details with some parts i had lying around. all thats left to do is make the belt for it

i put some nice brown buffolo fabric around the bottom of the bag and then sewed it all together on the machine

bag progress 1 (Posted 4th May 2012)

here is some nice white leather pieces for my bag!

front plate complete! (Posted 4th May 2012)

i spray painted the fimo gold and then painted the craft foam black, the i super-glued it altogether! now just to attach to the dress

front plate remake (Posted 4th May 2012)

i was not happy with that front plate, so i decided to remake it, i made the raised detail out of fimo on top of a piece of craft foam

necklace (Posted 29th April 2012)

i made this out of polymorph and a big bead

dress back detail (Posted 29th April 2012)

gold applique!! :)

Dress progress (Posted 22nd April 2012)

i hand stitched the side panels on, next job is to add the details

side panel progress 4 (Posted 22nd April 2012)

finally i hand painted over my sketch with black fabric paint

side panel progress 3 (Posted 22nd April 2012)

i then free hand drew the pattern on with a marker pen

side panel progress 2 (Posted 22nd April 2012)

next i added the burgandy edging, i had to do this in sections to make it rounded

side panel progress 1 (Posted 22nd April 2012)

i made the toilet shape side panels with the white fabric 1st and then appliqued the gold edging on to it

gloves progress (Posted 15th April 2012)

i made the gloves using grey leather and then added the detail using white leather, black cotton and yellow pvc for the details, i still need to do the wrist parts

dress details (Posted 15th April 2012)

i decided to make the details out of some spare plastazote that i have, i cut out the basic shapes and then raised them using hot glue or 3-d paint by freehand drawing the pattern

dress progress (Posted 15th April 2012)

the base of the dress is now complete! i now need to add all the details

dress progress ribbons (Posted 9th April 2012)

those darn ribbons!! i bought lots of a wine coloured velvet ribbon for the decoration, pluse some light pink ribbon for underneath, it is near impossible sew two velvet pieces of ribbon together so i decided in the end just to use the wine coloured ribbon but zig-zag stitch along the edges with light pink cotton, it works well and looks good too! once i have finished sewing all on the ribbon on i will be able to add the zipper and take up the skirt as its not quite short enough at the moment

dress progress (Posted 9th April 2012)

once i finally made the base dress i started to sew on the pink

dress progress (Posted 9th April 2012)

AHHHH this dress is more complicated than i thought! i decided to buy a pattern for a mini strapless dress to help me make the dress but then i had to change alot of it to make the holes in the sides, here is the fabic i chose, its a faux velvet for the pink and a thick white satin for the base.

shoe sides (Posted 9th April 2012)

here is a pic of the sides and they are complete!

progress - shoes 2 (Posted 9th April 2012)

i made all the pieces on the sewing machine out of white leather for the bottom and light pink suede for the other pieces. i then tried to hand sew it on but its very difficult so i glued it all on instead lol

progress - shoes (Posted 9th April 2012)

here is what i startd with for the shoes
