New Leopard Leggings & Little Black Dress

Woooo finally starting to wind down for xmas now after a MENTAL year. I'm soooo looking forward to a few days off, but one last post before I go...

New pair of leopard print leggings this week. I made these from soft black cotton with decorative panels of tan and brown leopard print velvety velour and black an silver glitter star print lycra across the front, criss-crossing at alternate angles and with plain black backs. They are currently available custom handmade to fit your own measurements for regular as well as plus sizes, up to a very maximum hip size of 50 inches! Visit the tights and leggings section of my clothing store to see the full details or for more of my handmade unique leggings designs.

Also this week, well technically last week but I only just got round to taking a picture, I made this rocker chick style little black studded dress. It's made from heavy weight black semi stretch fabric, with zipper fastening down the front and panels of black faux leather studded with silver pyramid studs running down the center and more strips of studded leather under the bust and on the shoulders.

I made this to wear as my new years eve dress although it's debatable as to whether I'll brave the cold! I like it because personally I've never been keen on wearing dresses and being all girly, but this one is perfect because while being feminine it still has a bit of a rough n tough feel to it, meaning I can feel sexy but still feel myself :)

Lace up Leggings & Custom Wednesday 13 Leggings!

I cant seem to stop making leggings lately! Today I made some new super glam rock style lace up leggings in pink sparkly leopard print (can't stop using this fabric-I love it!) with black fishnet side panels and overlapping black ribbon lace up detail which tie into bows at the bottom. The waistband is made from black leather look lycra and there are matching black cuffs on the ankles. These are available customer handmade to fit up to a hip size of 44 inches. The fabric wont be around for very long however so these are a limited edition, while fabric stocks last!

Also this week I got a rather exciting custom order for some Wednesday 13 studded leggings made from a band t shirt she sent me. They are an asymmetrical design with the t shirt graphics on each thigh, panels of silver glittery star print lycra and panels of faux leather decorated with round silver studs and pyramid studs, all overlaied onto sexy black spandex lycra. I love these!

Green Stripe Leggings & Pink Leopard Glam Leggings!

Last week I made a new one of a kind pair of pink leopard print leggings with black and white stars, which somehow sold before I even got round to posting them on facebook or anywhere else! I was quite impressed with that actually : ) Anyway when I did post it on facebook they seemed to get quite a lot of love, so I decided to make some similar as a regular item, for sale from the leggings section of my site. They are slightly different to the original but I think I prefer them to be honest. The upper body bit on the front is made from pink sparkly leopard print, with alternating panels of pink leopard and black and white star print overlaid onto black spandex lycra. The back is plain black and the lycra fabric is really stretchy and moulds to fit the legs like a glove!

Here's the new pair of pink leopard/stars leggings....

And the old pair...

And also from this week I have another new pair in green and black! I love the combination of bright green and black and I have no idea why I haven't done more stuff like this. They are also made from black spandex lycra with panels of vertical fluorescent green and black stripes decorating the front at alternate diagonal angles. Both pairs are available in regular and plus size from my shop. The photos didnt come out very well, they dont accurately show how bright they are, but take it from me-they are fluorescent!

New Gothic Mini Skirt

This week I decided to update one of my favourite skirts as the pictures were looking a bit old and the fabric I use has changed since then. It's a black gothic mini skirt with a stretchy cotton waistband with three tiers of black lace in gathers to create a tutu effect. The waistband features decorative eyelets which lace up with black ribbon. It's available to buy from the punky rah rah skirts section of my website in regular or plus size..

New Dress Tops

I made a couple new dress tops this week. Been a while since I had time to make anything new! One will be a regular item for regular and plus size and the other is just a one off. The first is a black cotton hooded dress top with panels of pink glitter sparkle leopard print on the bust and back and a leopard print pocket on the front. The hood is also made with pink leopard print and is lined with black cotton, as well as matching pink cuffs on the sleeves. Super comfy and the panels on the front and back give it a bit more warmth than just wearing a normal top. It’s now available for sale from the long sleeved dresses section of my website.

The other top I made was intended to be a regular item but it took me so long I don’t think I can afford to list this as a regular item for a reasonable price, due to the time involved, so I figured I’d just sell it as a one off. It’s a hooded dress top made with black and purple soft cotton lycra, with alternating panels of colour in stripes. The panels are overlayed onto the black base, giving it extra warmth and thickness. The front features a black and white star print pocket, star print hood lined with black cotton and matching star print bottom hem. It’s available in roughly a UK size 8/10 and the exact measurements are listed on my website under the one offs and custom clothing section.

Skulls, Roses and Stars Leggings

Wow this has been the busiest couple of weeks of my life! I've been doing 17-18 hour days, trying to get caught up on orders and have literally had no time for anything but sewing and a bit of sleep in between :) I made this a little while ago but only just got the time to write about them now! They are black cotton lycra leggings with diagonal panels on the front in grey/cream skulls and roses printed cotton and black and white star print cotton. These leggings are really quite unique, since the skulls fabric is so varied, every time I cut the panels for the leggings, they will come out with the pattern looking slightly different. I like this pair a lot since they are interesting to look at but also really comfy because they are cotton lycra :)

They are available to regular and plus size from the leggings section of my website starting at £31.99.

This dress top is now available for sale to regular and plus size from the long sleeved dresses section on my website.

These leggings also have studded strips of black faux leather on the front with round studs as well as pyramid studs. They are a size 8/10 and available to buy from the custom clothing section of my website.

New One Of a Kind Top plus Skulls Leggings!

I was bored yesterday and decided to treat myself to making a new one of a kind piece of clothing, which is always the thing I find most exciting and enjoyable to do. It's a studded bustier style top in red tartan and black and red cherries print in alternating panels. The front features black faux leather straps studded with silver pyramid studs and an adjustable lace up fastening with large silver eyelets. The back has more faux leather studded straps that cross over and the halter neck strap has a large silver buckle fastening that can be adjusted to fit.

It is a UK size 10/12 and the full measurements and details are listed on my website under the one offs and custom clothing area of my site.

New pair of leggings! I wasn't sure whether these would be a one of a kind pair or a regular item for all sizes, but after getting such a good response on facebook, decided to make them available made to fit, for regular and plus size. They are made from black cotton lycra with slanted panels of black and white skull and crossbones print and polka dot print on the front. As they are made from cotton they are super soft and comfy to wear. They are available to buy from the tights and legging section of my website.

More Wintery Wear :)

I have made a couple more wintery style things this week. First off, after years and years of my parents hassling me to wear a coat because I'll "catch a chill", but refusing to because a)they are expensive and I don't often treat myself to new things and b)I can never find any coats that I even like, I finally took the time to make myself one. ANNNNDD I like it! It's a cropped coat made from black cotton and lined with black fleece, the hood is also lined with fleece which feels lovely on my head. It's sort of like wrap around, with adjustable silver buckle fastenings and large silver eyelets for decoration. But it's also joined at the bottom, so it's more of a pullover than a coat. I made it short/cropped to emphasize my waist as I hate how frumpy and unsexy coats normally make me feel. I know, I know what you're thinking..."She'll still catch a chill with her midriff on show like that"....WRONG! I only shot the photos like this to make it clear that it is cropped, however it can, and will be warn with other clothes underneath. It's just a lot easier to see the actual length of it without clothes underneath, since all my clothes are black.

Anyway I'm waffling now...This took me agggesss! Although I haven't figured out yet if that's because of the design or whether it's simply that I haven't made any coats before, so once I've had a bit more practice, I would be up to speed a bit better. I'm thinking the latter. So I'm still in the process of deciding whether to list it for sale on my website or not, due to the time/money involved. However I had a lot of positive feedback when I posted the pic on facebook last night, so maybe I will...

And I made another long sleeved hooded dress top, similar to my tartan hooded dress top from my previous post. This one is also made from black cotton with panels of black and white skull and crossbones print cotton on the front and back. There's a big panel on the back to add warmth and thickness. Oh and I added a cute front pocket and extra strips of skulls on the sleeves. And the bottom hem or the dress as well as the sleeves are cuffed.

Haven't made any of these in a while....

This week I've been trying to accept that it's cold and it is only going to get colder, so it's time to start making some stuff that will actually provide some warmth while still looking good. I find it's difficult to look good in the winter, when it gets super cold I tend to just pile on the man jumpers, but this year I'm going to make it my goal to make some proper nice warm gear. Though since this is a bit of a foreign area to me, I decided to start of with some long sleeved tops and then ease my way into some warmer jackets and things :)

I was quite inspired by a recent custom order of mine for a Morticia Addams dress, so decided to make a top in a similar style to that. The dress is a floor length fishtail dress in black velvet with v shaped neckline and long caps on the sleeves. Luckily this awesome customer is the same size as me so I managed to get a quick shot of the dress. Anyway I liked the velvetyness and the long sleeves so made a long sleeved top in the same fabric which is now listed on my website, custom made to fit-regular and plus size.

Here's the Morticia dress...

And here's the top it inspired...

Long Sleeved Lace Up Velvet Top

I then went on to attempt a hooded dress top, which turned out great (jf I do say so my self). It's really comfy and snugly and I didnt want to take it off after shooting the photos for it. It's made from black cotton lycra with panels of stretch red tartan print, which add extra warmth and thickness to the front and especially the large panel on the back. The hood is plain black and lined with tartan which makes it extra awesome and gives the hood some extra thickness and snugglyness too. From the pictures it's not very clear but there are also silver D rings on the shoulders. I photographed it as a dress alone so you can see it clearly, but obviously could be warn over leggings or jeans to keep nice and cosy. This one is also available custom made to fit regular or plus size.

New Studded Leggings & Fishtail Skirt

Right I've finally designed a new awesome pair of unique leggings that are going to be available made to order rather than just one of a kind. AND these are available for plus sizes too! They are made from black wet look and sparkly glitter silver star print lycra. They have black faux leather strips on the front which are studded with rounded silver studs. I really love this design and hope my customers will too!

Purple Gothic Fishtail Skirt

Also this week I decided to add another colour option to my range of gothic fishtail skirts, I love this purple spandex velour fabric so thought I'd see how that would look. It's slim fitting from waist down to the knee and flares out at the bottom, hence the fishtail. Though I prefer to think of it as a mermaid tail as they are a lot nicer than fish!

Gothic Purple Fishtail Skirt

Skulls & Studs Wet Look Leggings

And lastly I made another one of a kind pair of leggings in a similar design to some of my recent one off pairs, made from black wet look with panels of stretch denim, studded of course, and black and white skulls print fabric. My supplier has discontinued this fabric recently so I thought I'd make use of the scraps I have left. They are a size 8/10 and you can view the full details and measurements to fit on my website.

I seem to have disappeared off the radar these past few weeks, things have gotten so busy I've been shackled to my machines constantly, hence my lack of bothering to post anything on here :( Anyway-catch up time, here are a few of my latest designs....

Rainbow Stripe Tutu Dress

This dress is made from multicoloured striped cotton with a fitted body featuring zipper front fastening and big decorative black bow and lace trim on the bust. The tutu part is made up of two tiers of stripe cotton and black lace. I love this dress! It may be a bit bright for some people's tastes, but I've always had a thing for rainbow coloured stuff! It makes me think of sweets and makes my eyes feel happy.

It's available custom made especially to fit for regular and plus size from the corset dresses and tutu dresses section of my website.

Punk Studded Tartan/Wet Look Leggings

These punk style leggings are one of kind and made from black glossy wet look lycra with panels of red tartan print and black studded faux leather. They are a UK size 8/10 and available to buy from the one of a kind clothing section of my site.

Leopard Print Lace Up Pencil Skirt

Lastly another lace up pencil skirt-I just love making these, I think they are super sexy! It's made from black wet look lycra with leopard print velour down the sides and black ribbon lace ups on top. It's available in regular and plus size and you can find it under pencil skirts!

Back (hopefully soon) with more new stuff as soon as I find time!

Wednesday, 12 September 2012

I've been having such a hectic time lately, juggling sewing orders, making new things and doing a load of internet stuff for my website, I've barely had time to stop and do anything else, much in need of a day off I think :) But for now here are a couple of new tops from this week.

This first top is a one of a kind punk style studded denim vest top. It has a lace up front fastening which can be adjusted to fit and is decorated with studded strips of faux leather, star print and wet look, with a studded mini pocket on one side. The back features crossover faux black leather straps studded with silver pyramid studs. I think this is a first, as it's already sold. Dont think I've ever sold something before I even got a chance to write about it, but hey, wanted to show it off anyways!

Stars and Studs denim Punk Vest Top

Studded Denim Star Punk Vest

This top is available handmade to fit many sizes! It's quite similar to one of my one of a kind tops that had a lot of positive feedback and also disappointed people who wanted it to be available in more sizes. Well this one I can make to fit up to a bust of 48 inches! Yes that's right, I even made it available to plus sizes too :) It's made from black wet look with a gathered bust and antique brass look studs. The main body is black spotty semi see through lace with black faux leather studded shapes on the front. The back is plain black wet look. Oh and the strap is halterneck to give a flattering shape to the chest ;)

The last pic is a close up shot of the top and me wearing my new leopard print hearts locket and hair pins from Glamasaurus Online Store. I wrote about her shop in a post recently and again I urge anyone reading to visit her shop RIGHT NOW! As her jewelery is just totally adorable and really original too! Love!!!!

I'm wondering what people prefer: something completely unique and individual to them that no one else has OR to have their choice of alternative clothing made especially to fit them but is a repeated design? What do you prefer?! This week I made a couple new pairs of leggings. One is a custom one of a kind pair of leggings and the other is a repeated design available in regular and plus size.

The custom pair are made from black leather look lycra with patchwork panels of denim studded with antique look rust coloured studs, star print and black wet look lycra. They are a UK size 8/10.

Stars & Studs Patchwork Rocker Leggings

Black Leather Look Studded Rock Leggings

Now these leggings are available custom made to fit any size up to a hip of 44 inches. They too are made from black leather look and feature sexy black lace side panels, which lace up with black ribbon and tie into bows at the calf.

Lace Up Leather Look Leggings

Leather Look Black Lace Leggings

While I love making unique one of a kind pairs of leggings as they are special and individual to the person that takes them home, I also love being able to custom make my leggings to fit, so that the customer knows they will have a good fitting pair even if they are between sizes and especially for plus size ladies who struggle to find any unique and fun pairs of leggings that are available in plus sizes.

I'd be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on this, would you rather something no one else has? Or something that is made especially with your shape and size in mind, but isn't a unique design?
