2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Does anyone else have a problem with Wists? on: January 23, 2010 08:32:30 AM
I read that they are powered by Gawker.com so I went on there and posted an issue in their troubleshooting section. http://getsatisfaction.com/gawker/topics/what_happened_to_the_wists Everyone should go complain on there and maybe that will get it fixed faster. It's worth a shot

thanks madgypsy! i posted there...getting nervous though because i didn't "backup" my bookmarks on wists anywhere else Sad i had some AWESOME bookmarks too! Sad :::wishing wists comes back up soon:::

About Me
My name is Tiffany; I'm 25 and I live in NJ, just outside of NYC. I live with my boyfriend in my parents' basement, with the most awesome little kitten ever! I love all things vintage, forensics-related, history-based and mythology-related (specifically Greek, Roman, and Egyptian). I love to research. I love, LOVE books and I love to travel. I'm obsessed with vampires (no surprise). I'm a Gemini. I'm always eager to learn new crafts!

Allergies
I'm not allergic to anything in particular but I strongly dislike smoke and over-powering scents.

Notes On My Style (I hope this helps!)
I love pearls, mermaids, peacocks, vampires, cats ("big" cats included) | I love toile fabric | I love swirls (I have examples if necessary) | Favorite colors - black and white  (and teal or plus red) | Favorite color combos - all colors (except brown) with black and white | I love goth/Victorian style | I love argyle | I love the ocean and I love Italy | I'm an 80s rock child | I LOVE to collect things

I would LOVE the items in green! Smiley

CRAFTS
Sewing
- needle roll for my knitting needles (size should be roughly 12"-15" tall; i dislike having to tie a bow though so preferably snaps or frog clasp)
- wrap around pincushion for my sewing machine
- drawstring bags for WIPs (Note: I would say my WIPs tend to take up medium- to large-sized ziploc bags)
- punk inspired wallet in black/white plaid: http://www.wetseal.com/catalog/product.jsp?categoryId=106&productId=21866&color=BLACK&altImageId=1
- pleatness bag: http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x179/perlabella5/OngoingWish%20Swap/IMG_1010.jpg
   (Ideally, the outer fabric should be "tough" or at least easy to clean since i'm klutzy and tend to spill stuff on my bag...ALL the time... Tongue)


Beaded Items
- shawl pin: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_16&listing_id=17597683  |  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_16&listing_id=17258507
- clay-based stitch markers: http://s180.photobucket.com/albums/x179/perlabella5/OngoingWish%20Swap/
- cameo inspired necklace: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25927139&ref=sr_gallery_9&&ga_search_query=black+and+white+victorian&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title


Misc Crafts
- hand carved peacock stamp
- hand carved tiger stamp (elegant tiger, not cartoon-y)
- altered Altoid tin needle "carrier" with magnets for the needles - I'm trying to find an example of the one I saw :\
- fused glass item
- kanzashi flowers: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=325966.msg3763984#msg3763984 | http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=318912.msg3673062#msg3673062
- detailed pin cushion + needlebook set - pin cushion, preferably slightly larger than a bottle cap but in that style (similar to this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278958.msg3180137;topicseen#msg3180137)
- dress form pin cushion: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278958.msg3189035;topicseen#msg3189035
- something from my wists that's not on these lists: http://www.wists.com/perla/handmade


SUPPLIES
- starter stamping kit w/ pads/markers and a couple of stamps - basically, I've always wanted to get into stamping but am at a loss when I get to the craft store, I really don't know what to get, how to use them or what's the "best" to get so this would be an AWESOME thing to receive!! Smiley (btw, i have a few stamps already but more is great!)
- starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)
- scrabble tiles
- starter rubber stamp carving kit
- beads! I love beads! (but I don't like plastic beads too much or painted wood beads)
- starter book binding kit/supplies


EXTRAS
- postcards from your locale
- teas (I love blended teas with black, green or white base. I don't like Chai and I don't really like berry-based teas)
- bookmarks (if paper, something difficult to rip lol Smiley )
- inchies
- ATCs
- fabric inchies or scraps
- buttons
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Altered McCalls M5806 for Rehearsal Dinner on: December 17, 2009 07:51:34 PM
Hey all! This is my 2nd biggest project ever! My first was this same dress for my friend's wedding (still unfinished).

This is going to be my other friend's rehearsal dinner dress. BUT, question - first, what is this "technique" called? pleated? not sure. secondly, how do I go about achieving this type of bodice from the pattern for McCalls M5806??

Here's what the bodice and midriff should look like (directly from Jim Helm):


And this is the original McCalls M5806 sketch:


I'm totally lost on how to -
1. expand the pattern piece to accommodate this "pleated-ness"
2. pleat the bodice in a similar fashion (it looks like it slants upwards on the side seams...right? not sure)

unfortunately that's the best pic of the Jim Helm dress I could find! Sad

please help! any suggestions or advice is much appreciated! Smiley
