Greetings, ghosts and ghouls! Today’s project is this spooktacular bleached ribcage shirt which is perfect for the Halloween season… but also for everyday wear.
(In my humble opinion, one can never have too many articles of skeleton-inspired clothing in their wardrobe.)
This creepy skeleton shirt was a staple item in my shop for years, and now it’s your turn to make one of your own.
Well, so far I have not met my New Year’s Resolution goal of one new pattern a month. But I did at least meet the goal of having this pattern ready before Halloween!
The newest WhatTheCraft Pattern is the Ruffle Bustle Skirt!
This voluminous tie-on bustle skirt is the perfect accessory for any steampunk, burlesque, or Halloween costume- complete your look with a corset and a pair of bloomers or leggings!
The skirt has an open front with three lace trimmed, ruffled layers that cascade around your hips, emphasizing your feminine curves. The satin ribbon ties at the waist allow for flexible sizing.
The sample I made is Queen of Hearts inspired, now I’m thinking versions for Alice, the Cheshire Cat, and the Mad Hatter are in order! These bustle skirts would be so awesome for a group costume theme.
Any seamstress with a taste for the out-of-the-ordinary has likely been disappointed by the offerings of most pattern companies, which tend to cater to the mainstream. If you’re hankering for something a little bit on the dark side, then look no further than Be My Goth Patterns!
I had the pleasure of reviewing the Lucinda top and Lucinda skirt patterns, seen below:
Both pieces are stunning and are the types of garments that people will stop you on the street to ask, WHERE DID YOU GET THAT? I can’t wait for a spare moment to sit down and make myself the Lucinda skirt- I love the fitted high waist and the pleated pockets.Read more…
Pardon my lackadaisical posting habits, I am experiencing an unprecedented custom order boom. Usually the first few months of the year are slower for me, but good GOD, not this year. Plus it’s nearing the end of March and I’m not trying to panic over how much garden prep I have NOT done yet.
Also I know I have already totally failed at my “one new tutorial and one new sewing pattern” per month thing. BOO! I actually have things mostly ready, but I just haven’t had time to finish them. ARG!
Yeah, that’s right. BOO and ARG!
Anyway, here are some of my new designs that I’ve been working on!
A new sweater coat called Absinthe- I had planned on designing a whole bunch of new coats, and then got completely overwhelmed with all these orders, so I only got one out in time!
The TARDIS dress! Featuring my custom designed fabric:
The Party Animal dress. Or as some people call it, The Lisa Frank dress.
Keeping up with my New Year’s Resolution to have at least one new sewing pattern in the shop each month, here’s the new pattern for January!
Fingerless Gloves! This is a super easy pattern- PERFECT as a beginner’s first project, or as a quickie project for a seasoned seamstress!
You can get this pattern AND my Cheeky Bikini Panties pattern for $15! That’s $3 off!
