This is the first garment I made myself and it looks pretty good.
The aim was to make something like the burberry prorsum spring 2010 collection pretty layers and stuff, but that was a bit too ambitious...

I'm going to make short sleeves, puff sleeves or shoulder pads, I do not know yet
what do you think?

I would love to turn this (dirty, sorry ) wedges:




into something similar to these lovely shoes:


(style.com)

I want to buy some nude tone of cloth (what material should I choose, btw?) and make the stripes and also cover the heel with it - or maybe paint it??, but I don't know how am I suppose to apply it... Anyone knows how can I find a tutorial on how to sew on shoes? I don't even know if that's possible. And if it isn't, what alternative method do I have? Some kind of special glue?

Would love to get help! Thanks a lot in advance.

I thinkt he material you need si some sort of chiffon, transparent knit or mesh. you should probably paint the heel first and see if you like it that way and then see if you want it covered, cause that would me a major change. It is possible to sew on shoes, specially if you are only going to add pieces of fabric to the top parts. You will need a thick needle, definitely and thick thread.

Do you guys think it would be possible to get a floral 60s dress with puffed arms, corset waist and big skirt (you know, that classic 60s look) sewed into a cool jumpsuit?

Any ideas if that would look good, and how the legs of the jumpsuit should be?

Depends on what you want to do and how much you have.
Do you want to turn it into another piece of clothing? If so, skirts are usually a really good option-esp if you can combine other denim washes for a really unique look. There's also: pillows, bags, yoga mat bags, hats...
What's your inspiration?
