October : Project runway

Post  Offgenemi on Sun Oct 02, 2016 9:14 pm

Designers, I will be posting different challenges every Sunday. I hope we all bring out our creativity Smile
I will follow most of the regular project runway rules.
Except there is not limit on time. You have till the end of the month to finish any of the challenges.
I will make a poll for each challenge and the forum members will decide who wins Smile
Winner of each challenge will get a gift from me Smile

Here is challenge #1
Designers, this week we want you to design a dress that is made of paper or paper products. You can not use any fabric, but you can use regular sewing supplies such as thread, Velcro and etc.
You can use the supplies you have at home but if you need to purchase anything for this challenge you can't spend more than 10 dollars.
Don't forget to style your doll , half of the project runway is about styling Smile I am very excited!
Make it work! Cool

Mina since you like to see I am sure you would have loved the show, at least the first a few seasons.
I will make an outfit to inspire everyone Smile

It sounds like fun, but also very challenging! I will try to participate, but since I have so many other things to work on for Halloween (both work and at home), I might be pressed for time.

The paper outfit was new this year at PUDDLE, the night before. It seemed quite popular.

I didn't participate in the contest at PUDDLE, so I'm definitely going to try to do this one! But not this week, so I'll be off to a slow start.

I made a simple dress to inspire you guys. it is really not that hard. it takes much less time than actually making a dress.

I'm planning to...I just have to get started. I have the supplies I'm going to use, but haven't quite found the time to work on the idea that's in my head. Things always pop up and cut into my spare time...

Challenge # 2
Maybe this challenge would sound a bit easier Smile it is fun for sure.
In one my fav episodes of project runway they took the designers to a flower shop and told them they can use anything in the store. They we allowed to use muslin underneath the flower.  We won't make it that hard Wink also remember you don't need to make Velcro/ button / snap closures , it just needs to look like a functional dress Smile

In this challenge we would like you to make an outfit that is made of floral components. It can be a dress made of completely flowers, moss, leaves or mixTure of them. You can use the real flowers or fabric/ silk / plastic / paper kind. Anything that is related to a floral shop is fair game Smile Cool

CB I am looking forward to see your creation Smile
To give a bit of inspiration I made one Smile
I used a very simple muslin fabric to make the base dress. it is basically a tube dress. so first measure on the doll.
The dal house October challenge # 2 by goche moche, on Flickr
i got a piece a bit bigger than I needed but if you cut 4-4 1/2 inches to 3 1/2 inches piece you should be ok.
The dal house October challenge # 2 by goche moche, on Flickr
I hem the edges casually because no one will see these parts. i put a snap as closure for my convenience.
The dal house October challenge # 2 by goche moche, on Flickr
then I took the fabric leaves i have and put them in an order i like then stitched them on the simple dress. i stitched these leaves only at the top part of the dress close to the edge of the dress. so they are freely flowing at the bottom. depending on the image you want to create you can try to sew them on at different parts.

this dress became heavy to i put one strap on the dress using a satin rat tail ( yep beautiful name). then I embellished it with mushroom and a paper flower hair accessory Smile
i will try to take her photos after work in the garden Smile i guess this can be her halloween dress Laughing she looks like a forest creature Smile

Oh! I will have to try and work on this one. It doesn't need to be completed each week does it?  October ends up being so busy.

Nevermind. Reread, and caught the time limit.
