1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: A Beginner's Supplies.. on: December 22, 2011 04:15:23 AM
From the looks of it, that is a bead cap. I think the stone is only partially drilled and there is an eye hook glued into the hole. So it would go from bottom up: partially drilled stone, bead cap, eye hook glued into the stone, jump ring.

Hope that helps!

Ah thanks! I did find exactly what I was looking on ebay under "bead cap with loop". Sometimes it's just that easy!

Guys! I really hope you can help me!

I'm much of a n00b when it comes to beading/jewelry findings etc, (so I'm not even sure if I'm in the right board here  Cheesy) but I was wondering if these silver thingies have a name?



I tried searching for bead caps but those are for threading and not for like... Pendant making.

Sorry again guys as you can tell I'm totally clueless  Cheesy

Thanks guys  Cheesy

Alexus: I actually thought about funky draping effects as well! But the fabric of the top feels very fragile so I don't want to put too much weight in the back. I'll probably go with a lace insert in the back, mostly because it's such a light material (but also for prettiez, of course  Grin)

If anyone else has any tips ideas or advice feel free to share though, as I probably won't get around actually starting the little project for another few weeks  Tongue
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making this awkward fitted tank top bigger? (IMG heavy) on: August 17, 2010 07:27:07 AM
Okay so first of all, it's been a while since I posted here and the forums just keep getting bigger and more complicated so if this is placed in the wrong subforum, or I'm doing anything wrong, super sorry in advance  Cheesy

On to the business: I have this awesome tank top from ASOS that I barely ever wear (read: I've had it for about 8 months, worn it once, maybe twice) because I hate the fit. It's flowy and loose on top with low cut armholes (awesome) but clingy and tight in the tummy/hip area.

To demonstrate awesomeness:


So, I want to somehow make this top bigger, without screwing up the graphic. I came up with a few different solutions and drew them out for you because I suck at explaining things.


a.
I thought I'd cut out a square in the back, under the bit where my brastrap should be, then insert half of what you'd call a circle skirt for extra flow.


b.
Make a slit, then insert a triangular shaped patch of fabric, or some pretty lacey stuffs.


c.
Do two slits on the sides, and insert triangular shaped patch of fabric.


My main concern (besides just screwing the whole thing up  Cheesy) is that the front will look very stiff and boxy, instead of having a nice flow, and a bit of an empire line to it.
I don't really care what the back looks like, as long as the front isn't boxy and shapeless, I'm fine with any of these three options or some other kind of solution.
Suggestions? Comments?

I KNEW I'd seen a pattern similar to this one on Burdastyle. But unfortunately it's not one of the free patterns. It is pretty cheap though and their patterns are very straight forward.

Ooh that's super! Thanks!  Grin

Okay sounds pretty much out of my league  Tongue

Thanks everyone, I think that when I find some nice fabric, I'll try the 4 x chest circumference thing.  Cheesy

Okay so I've been lusting after this dress for ages now, and I've been hunting it down on ebay (where I got these pictures) but it always sells at ridiculously high prices.

So I'm thinking about making it myself.

However, I'm pretty much of a noob (I've done a few things like strapless tops, and I made a dress once, completely hand sewn and there's no way on earth I'm doing that again) so I could use a little help  Cheesy

- The fabric. It looks a bit stiff to me, I suppose jerseys or any kind of t-shirt fabric would just drape instead of stick out like that?
- The pattern. Is it just a giant rectangular that has been gathered? Or is it a mega-sized circle skirt?


Virtual cookies for those that can help!  Cheesy
