181  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: I'm a milkmaid? Summer time dress. TUTORIAL ADDED!! Warning- Very PIC HEAVY! on: August 15, 2005 10:28:27 AM
Such an adorable dress!

I made a shirt with the same material http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47746.0.  I think it looks wonderful as a dress.  Great job!

Thanks!  What quick responses.

NellyPie: That's a great idea. So simple, but it never crossed my mind. Thanks!

mrs.benjimadden:  I love long fitted shirts too, as long as they aren't to tight around the bottom.  I think you could probably add little ties to the side seams of any shirt to make it more fitted.

Debbie Brookman: Just make sure if you lengthen it, that the peplum (the bottom part without the buttons) isn't too tight around the seam that joins it to the shirt.  I think it's fitted more for the waist than the hips.  Hope that helps!
                           I love to see your's when you make it.

This is the first shirt I've ever made.  It's from simplicity 5194 and wasn't too difficult.  I would probably recommend lengthening the shirt (although I don't know how) because it shows my belly button which seams wierd for this style shirt.


This halter was very easy to make.  It was Simplicity 5507.
     

Thanks for looking Smiley
184  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Young Frankenstein & Robert Smith on: August 11, 2005 10:33:07 AM
Wow, thank you for all the nice comments.  As far as "technique", all I did was find an image online and have my sister help me make it a solid black-and-white in photoshop.  Then I printed it on regular computer paper.  For the Young Frankenstein stencil, I cut out the black part (with scissors and a straight edge) and discarded it.  The remaining white was now my stencil.  Next, I rolled up pieces of tape to fit underneath various parts of the stencil and taped it to the shirt.  After I had the image in place, I used the bleach pen to cover all of the open space of the stencil.  The shirt begins to bleach rather quickly, so when it looks like it isn't turning color any more, I carefully peel off the stencil and rinse off the bleach under running water.  After drying the shirt, I touch it up where needed with a black sharpie and the bleach pen.

For the Robert Smith stencil, I used the same method as above, except I cut out the black part of the image and used that as the stencil.  That's why he's outlined with bleach.  Also, I didn't do so well connecting the parts of his face, so his nose disappeared and his mouth got really small.  This was my first stencil, so I didn't try much to fix it.

Overall, this method is pretty quick and easy, but hardly flawless.  The paper gets very soggy, so the stencil is pretty much useless after one use. Next time I will probably try freezer paper, or card stock.

I hope this helped.  Thanks again for the positive feedback!

My sister and I stenciled this shirt for our dad for father's day.  We used a clorox bleach pen and an image printed from our computer, hence the fuzzy lines.

I also stenciled this Robert Smith shirt in the same manner.
186  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: creative halloween costumes on: August 24, 2004 03:46:11 PM
I went as an autumn fairy last halloween. I stitched a bunch of fake leaves onto a tank top and a few to the skirt.  The wings were wire hangers.  They are attached at the center with electrical tape then i shaped the two rectangles into wings. I hot glued the fabric and used straps to a convertable bra to hold the wings on.  The shoes were my clear prom shoes, I used a hot glue gun to attach leaves to them.  As a group costume, each person could go as a different season or element of nature.  Not a very good quality picture, i'm new to posting pictures.


A few years ago I dressed up as dirty laundry.  I cut a hole in a laundry basket (not a hamper, but a shallower basket) and put it around my waist (hurts a little to get off and on).  I hung clothes and dryer sheets on it.  You can wear anything you want and add things like detergent containers...
187  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stuck on an increase on: August 20, 2004 05:59:40 PM
Thank you very much for the help.  It sounds like it won't be a huge problem if I just disregard the increase on one side (especially since this is my first non-scarf and pattern project).
188  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Stuck on an increase on: August 20, 2004 04:01:25 PM
First time poster, sorry if this is in the wrong place.  I'm knitting a toddler cardigan from "Knitting For the First Time" by Vanessa-Ann.  I'm on one of the front pieces and have knitted six inches in garter stitch.  The next step is armhole shaping which I have already successfully completed on the back, but the shaping on the front says: K1, inc 1, k to 1 stitch from the end of the row, inc 1, k1. 

If I knit to 1 st from the end of the row, I take that last stitch for the increase and have nothing left to complete the last stitch.

I would greatly appreciate any help, especially if someone has worked this pattern. Perhaps it is an error in the pattern.
