I thought you wanted to re-create the outfit shown...you are a lovely young lady and could pull off the blue beautifully!  I think any color that flatters your skin would be wonderful!  I prefer the jewel tones as well...do you like fuschia? It might be too bright depending on where you will be wearing it...if you need something lighter weight, you might even try a sturdy knit!  They make some pretty good ones now!

I hope you will post whatever you make...I love to see the young fashions here!
oh yes i most certainly do ^_^ but i have afew changes in mid and the color is too close to my skin tonation so i ot the royal blue might work.. and i willl.. after i have my baby in april lol Tongue

I agree with Alwaysinmyroom, also your not going to want to use anything like satin, because that is going to show every seam and mistake in an unflattering way.
Lol thank Gd ur here. i was actually thinkingof usng sati. but i aso dont want anything frail n wea i want pretty and stury fabric!

I remember jumpsuits like this from the 70's!  I would use a stretch crushed panne velvet, which is a flater, not so heavy velvet.  It would be strong enough to hold the eyelet trim...I know I have seen this fabric in Joann's but also at www.spandexworld.com, they have some pretty awesome stretch velvets! It would be lovely in brown or even deep burgandy!

I think if you go for too lightweight of a fabric, the outfit would not be very flattering...it is form fitting and would show off every bump and bulge!

Hmmmmm..
-scratches chin-
This is true! the colors you said are very nice.. but my skin is extremely dark [im black] i was wondering what you though of a royal blue ?

Are you doing freezer paper stencil? I would say that is the best option for this stencil.
  You can print on Freezer paper (my printer can do it) so I would say that you should cut the freezer paper to standard printer paper size, print the image, and then cut it out with an xacto knife.
  You need to make sure that as you are cutting, you retain the tiny pieces that will be needed (like all the insides of the loops and letters) and make sure that they are available when you are ready to stencil. Just iron on the freezer paper and then paint... voila!
   Freezer paper is the most amazing craft supply that I have discovered... I feel like I have missed out on opportunities in my life since I discovered it...
  I hope this is useful, if you have any questions, feel free to ask...
No question is a dumb question!
thanks so much i like that idea.. where can i get freezer paper ?

You can get freezer paper at the grocery store (probably at target or walmart too). It would be with the aluminum foil and plastic bags.
You just have to draw (or print) your design on the paper side, cut it out, then iron the waxy side to your fabric... then paint it on and peel off! It's like magic!
Ur Awesum squared. ^_-....
Im still a lil confused on which area to cut out and which area to leave..for example what are would icut out here.... ? http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2256/2463012832_175cc34a54.jpg%3Fv%3D0&imgrefurl=http://flickr.com/photos/8011745%40N03/2463012832/&usg=__9AEmqlkEtpbrxYAh9z7m94ccpcw=&h=240&w=199&sz=20&hl=en&start=48&um=1&tbnid=MCdD3e45vF4gjM:&tbnh=110&tbnw=91&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dbob%2Bmarley%2Bstencil%26start%3D40%26ndsp%3D20%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN

I would trace it onto a piece of stencil plastic and then using a heat tool (I have the Creative Textile Tool made by Walnut Hollow) and melt out the lettering.


u know i think i might try both! any tips on paint stenciling ? im want to stencil a picture of bob marley on the back of her bag
