1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Bra Sewing Bloggers by Size on: October 18, 2014 01:39:34 AM
I've compiled a list in case you want to find your twin. http://iammsfrizzle.blogspot.com/2014/10/bra-sewing-bloggers-by-size.html
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / recycled baby pants on: October 03, 2014 03:44:31 PM
I made pants out of polo shirts for an acquaintance.



Pattern (3 M) and tutorial are on my blog. http://iammsfrizzle.blogspot.com/2014/06/tiny-pants-pattern-and-tutorial.html
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: New vs. Used: How long before top of the line becomes more affordable? on: June 27, 2014 10:16:42 AM
I assume most of their new features are patented. Based on Babylock sergers, it'll take at least five years to knock $500 off the price. If you want these features on a vaguely affordable machine, you have to wait until the patent expires.

Ignore the size chart on the back. Measure your bust, waist and hips. The finished measurements will be printed on the tissue. I choose the size that is two inches bigger than my measurements, which makes a fitted dress. You can also measure a dress you already own and compare it to the measurements. This size will be larger than the size you would buy in a shop. You'll need to make a muslin (practice dress) first to work out all your fitting adjustments. I suggest getting a flat sheet from the charity shop to cut up for this.

As to choosing a pattern, never pay full price. Joann's will eventually have them for cheap, check your local sales flyer: http://joann.shoplocal.com/joannsalesflyer/Default.aspx?action=entry&pretailerid=-99845&siteid=228&storeID=2412188

I suggest a Very Easy Vogue pattern: http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/very-easy-vogue-pages-856.php
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Skirt - alternatives to a dart? on: February 01, 2013 02:01:04 PM
Did you make one 4-inch dart? That's bad news bears. Try pinning eight 1/2 inch darts, that might suit you better.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: 50s style dress pattern on: January 10, 2013 01:12:24 PM
Vogue 8556 has a similar ruched midriff, but not the shelf bust.

I think I can do this, thank you both so much!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make pleated/gathered dress on: December 10, 2012 01:35:58 AM
I've been dying to make a dress with these pleat/gather type things, but don't even know what to call them or how to make them. Any advice?

They're both so pretty! I noticed the second one doesn't cover your bra straps so well. If that bothers you, this  is what I've been doing to all my dresses lately: http://offbeatmama.com/2011/08/how-to-fix-slipping-bra-strap. I usually just sew the snaps in directly and use doubled thread instead of the ribbon.
