Thanks guys for all your wonderful comments...

During that semester project, my actual goal was to make it as far away from duct tape as possible.  One thing I really didn't like about duct tape is the texture it takes and how it looks when its all by itself.  By layering it and making it virtually invisible it really gave me the material without the same 'look' Smiley

Is it ruffles? No, when I layered the streamers on the dress, I put them all very straight and flat across.  What I did after I was done was very gently stretch every row in little increments so that it looked a little ruffled... Smiley

Is it comfortable? Well...if you're just standing there sure, it's okay.  It's pretty heavy though and the edge at the bottom of the dress, though you can't see it, is kinda rough so prolonged walking isn't really ideal as we found out during the photo shoot.  hah Smiley

But really, is making a duct tape dress even typical at all?  This one I made for an independent study.  I used a garbage bag base, covered with duct tape and then streamers!  Whatchu think?

wow, this is a great tutorial...My readers digest guide to sewing didn't have how to do an invisible zipper so i came on here to search and this is really awesome.  I'm not super worried anymore...heck, it looks easier than a normal zipper.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Stoopid question about boning! on: July 08, 2008 04:17:53 PM
I've actually never needed to use boning, but i draped a strapless dress and think it needs it. When using boning, you just sew it into the seam allowance, right? And...all the way up the princess seam? it doesnt stop under the bust, right? lol
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Tissue Lame? on: July 02, 2008 02:21:40 PM
So, I draped the pattern for a dress and the fabric I had in mind was a golden tissue lame.  I'm kind of nervous about the lightness of the fabric, and was just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for giving it a little more structure.  Should I interface it? If so, what kind? Iron on or sew in?

Hehe, I've had the same thoughts/concerns as you Miss Violaceous.  I was worried that people would want to see the earrings hanging...Tongue I plan on getting a frosted acrylic stand for them sometime in the near future...Tongue Thank you everyone for your comments! Smiley

So I had a lot of fun making this, I really love how it turned out, almost exactly how I had envisioned.  I wish I had moved the flower up a little, but I like the placement from side to side.  Any comments? 

Oh, and it was intentionally uneven haha, for effect.  I thought about making it all the same length but it seemed a little boring & too everyday for my current stylee.

Hiii everyone Smiley  So, I'm finally adjusting and settling into etsy after the first 3 months and stuff.  I was wondering if I could trouble you guys for some feedback on my overall appearance of my etsy as well as my products themselves?

Heres the link: (ooops! sorry, put the wrong one the first time!) http://Http://ohmygoshkiki.etsy.com

I'd also love some opinions on my new blog, I just posted the first entry tonight Tongue  I'm trying to feature artisans on it Tongue  Any & all feedback/comments/cristism is greatly appreciated.  Smiley

The link for my blog is: http://Http://www.ohmygoshkiki.com

Have a nice night!

Hey, thanks everyone for all your sweet comments Smiley

As for the price, it's still brand new and I'm pretty happy with the price, a lot of time went into each one, from the sewing, to making the bracelet and making it sturdy enough so it wont just break.  I think maybe in a few months if they don't sell I'll try lowering the price.  I'm not advertising much, so when summer starts and I try to advertise more, I think maybe they could sell in the 20-26 range Tongue

Thank you though! SmileySmiley
