Mirv's sewing stuff

Mavi's Sewing Room on FriendFeed - where I've been posting links for patterns, sewing, supplies, &etc

Mirvana Makes Stuff - you're lookin' at it. I'll keep posting photos of my creations and other interesting stuff here. This blog feeds into Mavi's Sewing Room, too. - same old address, but I have repurposed the domain for selling military and tactical uniforms and accessories. Yes, I know that's a far cry from corsetry and Medieval costuming, but we are catering to airsofters, paintballers, and LARPers who do military/scifi themes. Http:// is my blog devoted to that space.

I finally posted a creation to my profile over at! It's been a while since I made myself something that wasn't SCA garb or a costume of some sort. These are just regular old casual pants for work, using Burda Mode pattern #9305 Ellen Pants that I downloaded for free :D. I used a cheap piece of stretchy brown denim that I found at Walmart. I guesstimate that it cost me less than $10 in materials, and they fit pretty well. I like the pattern and might reuse it, but the instructions were dodgy. I just did it my own way.

I can't wait to make more pants!

Back to costuming, I also recently finished making another kimono and obi:
I used Folkwear's kimono pattern with purple silk dupioni from The obi was a piece of satin brocade from mystash.

In politics, absurdity is not a handicap. ~Napoleon Bonaparte

I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes, - and the stars through his soul." ~Victor Hugo

An author is a fool who, not content with boring those he lives with, insists on boring future generations. ~Charles de Montesquieu
