3) When replying to a post, remember this is NOT the critique section.
4) Comments like " I love your eyes/ my god you are hot" are not helpful! Include them but please comment on the item/s being shown off too!
5) This Show Off section is only for showing off non hair related products, not making sales. Please make no references to eBay, A and P, or any kind of sales. You may offer the same item for sale in A and P, but no cross linking between A and P and Show Off. Show Off should be a place to comment and encourage each other; we don't want Show Off to become a billboard for sellers.

It's prototype stage atm, I've learned things purely from making this one & I've trimmed the bit around the wrist.....but I need to fashion a closure of sorts, I have a press stud thing or I was thinking maybe a little zip. I'd have to find the tiny zips though.
Well Sarah that just looks fabulous, I might have to actually allow myself to buy a pair if they look that good. Very well done, lady.

I'm so impressed with how far you've come one Sarah. You're making some amazing things!

Do you buy your jersey locally or on-line? I'm thinking of having a play about myself as I can't find anything in the shops that fits my inner vision of clothes :|

Normally on-line Liz, from 3 different sellers on ebay mostly: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/infashionfabrics, http://stores.ebay.co.uk/thewonderfulworldoffabrics & http://stores.ebay.co.uk/minervacraftsandfabrics

The second one is where I got the fabric from for the collar top & basque. You can normally find the odd bargain in Boyes too if you have one locally.

Thanks Ladies - I'd hate to think how many hours I've poured in to those two items.....I've been off work for 7 days & started them on my first day off. I'm glad my grafting shows! :D

Thanks. I'm half decent with a sewing machine, I've just never made anything without a pattern...unless it was a lined bag or something, but they're a piece of piss.

You can normally acquire free patterns on line - great if you have access to a printer. I originally cut the seams out of a top & used the parts as a template for other things. I had some failures & some pretty awesome wins :D

Loving that bike.

I've been busy on a few wings lately, this is for new baby niece, obviously too young to wear wings so they hang on a wall
Image

These for my niece who adores purple
Image

Didn't get chance to take any good photos of these as had to get them sent out, pair of ivory flower girl wings
Image

Purple, black & rose wings made for my friends forthcoming hen weekend at Tatton Park, she doesn't know about them yet :D
Image

And finally, black feather wings for an 'angry bird' costume for Beatherder festival
