Ooh, they're cute! They'll be easy to do from a pants pattern - if you can't find one very high waisted then you should find it pretty easy to extend them up! Also, give them a try on non-stretch fabric, it should be pretty simple.

Good luck!

I don't know of any patterns, but you could always get a high-waisted-pants-pattern and just make it shorter to make a pair of shorts! That way you might be able to avoid using stretch fabric, which often doesn't last as long.

If you do end up going with a stretch fabric, I'd try for a stretch denim or corduroy or cotton drill. To make them fit correctly you might will probably still need to put in a fly, which can be hard on a stretch fabric - but you can do it!

Good luck!

What lovely dresses! How fun!

The difference between a six-panel and a two-panel skirt is basically that the six-panel will have much more shape, be much more fitted, and for the style that you're looking at with the fishtail it will look much more spectacular and professional. You'll get a much more effective fishtail with six panels, and it's not that much harder.

Cutting on the bias does make a big difference for the drape on some fabrics and for anything with tones in it, it can make the colour appear quite different. I would recommend that you follow the pattern that you use!

You could use a variety of fabrics for the second one. It looks like it's silk dupion or something similar (other craftsters will know!), but you could use satin.

I'm not heaps of help, but I'm sure you'll have plenty of people with fabulous suggestions coming up! Good luck!
10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Question about Hummus / Chickpeas on: May 16, 2008 03:06:28 AM
Wow, so many recipes for hummous! How exciting! I LOVE chickpeas, and think you really should try them again!

I'm married to a Lebanese man, so here's the traditional recipe for hummous:

Put a couple of cups of cooked chickpeas into the food processor. Add a few tablespoons of water, the juice of one lemon, one clove of garlic, 4-5 tablespoons of tahini, and 4-5 tablespoons of excellent quality extra virgin olive oil. Pulverise it until it's creamy and smooth.

To serve, put it into a bowl and pour more of that excellent olive oil over it. Eat with beautiful fresh arabic bread.

The excellent olive oil is absolutely essential, and really lifts the flavour. Same with being generous with the tahini! In arabic the word for chickpeas is hummous, and they call the dip "hummous with tahini", so that explains the way the flavours are meant to be. Tastylicious.

Enjoy!
