That's a great point about a side zipper. Good idea about testing it out before hand too. I've made a short dress the same way I'm going to make this long one, but with cotton, so it's probably a good idea to give it a try.

Thanks so much for the advice! I really appreciate your responding!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Chiffon prom dress-More questions! on: July 25, 2009 08:36:59 AM
Hi, I am going to be attempt to make my prom dress for next year. It is going to be floor length, and I am going to try and paint the fabric in a watercolor sort of way.

First-How much fabric would you recommend? I'm only 5'2''. I was thinking 5 yards. Do you think that's enough?
Second- Do you recommend sewing the zipper in the back, or on the side? I've never sewn a zipper before, so I would prefer the easier method.

Third- The fabric is pretty see through, so I want to do two layers for the skirt part. Should I cut the two layers, sew them together, and then sew the front to the back? Or should I make it so that it's like two skirts, one on top of the other?
Fourth- What kind of hem do you recommend for chiffon?

Thanks so much!!

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Decoupaged Bangle on: July 09, 2009 08:00:58 AM
I am teaching a jewelry project at the library next week for teenage girls. Usually I do a beaded project, but this time I decided that we would decoupage bangle bracelets. So, I got a bunch of plastic bangles and cut out hundreds of designs from magazines and wrapping paper.
This is the example I made. It was originally a green bracelet, but I covered it with bits of yellow magazine, and then I decoupaged post-it notes over it. I cut a long strip of paper and put it on the inside of the bracelet to cover up the raw edges.

And another view:


Thanks for looking!

Hello! This collage is based off the backdrop at the end of the movie Raise Your Voice.
The palm tree and black grid are connected, and then I cut out different colored squares of magazine and glued them behind the grid.

Sorry for the bad photo!
Thanks for looking; feel free to comment!!
