1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / seeking super-easy hooded grim-reaper-type robe tutorial on: October 15, 2013 09:03:46 AM
Can anyone help me find a simple hooded cloak (like a grin reaper style cloak) tutorial with pictures to help me figure out what to do?  My son wants to be the "Red Death" from the Edgar Allen Poe story - and has asked me to sew a full length red cloak and he plans to use facepaint to make his face look like a skull (which should be only peeking out from a big hood).  I have searched and searched and there are a ton of tutorials without any pictures - and I've searched youtube too. Can anyone point me in the right direction?  I'm hoping the pattern will mostly have rectangles and very simple construction.

Thanks!!!

These are my absolute favorite colors and I love how you used them - gorgeous!

Adjustable sounds good although I'm not yet there with my sewing skills - plus it adds the cost/work of the hardware involved and I like to go for the most simple way of doing things - you are totally right though that adjustable would solve my problem.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / length of strap for crossover bags on: November 03, 2012 01:12:28 PM
I know so much depends on the size of the person and where you want the bag to fall, and personal preference too - but are there any guidelines?  If I am making it for myself - where do I want the bag to fall so it hangs in a way that doesn't make it bounce up with every step I take, but doesn't feel too short either? Hip length? waist?

also for cloth shopping bags - I always feel unsure of the length to make those as well. I usually make two handles that are 21' long each because I just cut a long strip from selvedge to selvedge - but depending on the depth of the bag - it can hit the ground - so perhaps I ought to be making my handles a bit shorter. Are there any standards?

Any suggestions would be so helpful to me. Thank you!!

anyone?? I'm desperate!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / re-size position of arm holes on t-shirts?? on: September 08, 2012 03:03:16 PM
I have lost a bit of weight (not too much - still very plus-sized) and my t-shirts are looking slightly hangy-down (not in a good way) but the real frustration is that whenever I raise my arms - one can see right through to my side and bra, etc....so I would like to try to alter a few of my t-shirts so that they aren't necessarily smaller - but they don't show as much through the arm holes.  I know there must be tutorials on the web or this board to help me know how to do this - but I've been searching and haven't found any I can understand (I guess I need pictures to help me know what I need to do - words along is not enough).  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  I'm not looking to make the fitted or fancy or even smaller over-all, just to somehow adjust the gapingly big arm holes.  Thank you in advance!!

Is there an easy way to do this? I tried a description I found online:  seam-rip sleeves off and add a seam to the top/shoulder seams, then re-sew sleaves so they fit in the now-smaller arm holes, then re-sew sleeves, and it was A LOT of work to take the sleeves off and on - and the neck looked crazy afterwards and he sleeve seems were wavy and 'frankenstein - y' - I am not sure my sewing skills are up for seams that matter like sleeves on knit fabric.  Is there an easier way? Please tell me there is!!!
