I'll Be Your Banana

Totally random title, I have been eaten ALOT of bananas though. My relatives often call me a banana. I'm cool with that....
alot banana bread...

So finished my mouldy jumper, which I've decided I don't hate anymore.
stripey jumper

messy looking neckline

I made a mistake on the neckline :(, so it looks a bit different to what it should look like. It took me around 12 nights to knit (not including the breaks I took from it)

skull leggings to skull stockings :)

I made some stockings from Marlena's tutorial, she's a friggin genius. You should check her out :)

Pastel Clash - heart hama bead buckle

I've nearly finished a Lolita skirt, I'm trying really hard to use up my fabric, but I bought some pleather, and some more wool :(

uber tacky shorts

I made some uber tacky shorts aswell. I drafted the pattern myself, all I need to do is master how to draft a sloper. I really, really love how disgustingly tacky these shorts are. 

draft, sew, cut and redraft, use redrafted pattern and sew tacky shorts.

I'm really proud, I hope I can kept building on my sewing skills, sometimes I feel like I'm just going in circles and never learning anything new :(

One of my friends recently got back from HK and got me some magazines and treats for my family, so sweet! Thanks Fran :D 

What's the most tackiest thing you own?
No offence, but can you trump my shorts :p?

Haha, Banana is cute! There's always bananas at my house because the doctor recommended many of my family members to eat bananas everyday.

Yay! Sewing and knitting projects! That's so awesome that you finished so many projects! I hope to start up sewing again.

Thank you for sharing Marlena's tutorial! I definitely love legging prints a lot, but I just don't like leggings... yay stockings!

That Pastel Clash -skirt is amazing! *o* Just love it!
And those shorts are pretty cool :)

Piperita Patty said...

I own a lot of tacky stuff, but maybe the tackiest is a vest that has a hot pink back part and in the front has violet, blue, pink and golden brocade like embroidery.
I bought it use at an open air market this winter, but I didn't manage to wear it yet because it's difficult to coordinate! Maybe black tee, black skirt and golden sandals would be ok.

Sam said...

Hi sweetie, how are you? Wow, you made ll these garments, Amazing! The pastel dress/skirt is so pretty!
