201  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can someone help me out with a summer dress ??? on: January 26, 2008 09:45:45 AM
Just start clickin' Girl!
There are probably 6 great dress ideas on this page alone. Don't miss
"Oatmeal daniela." The rest pretty much use the word "dress" in the topic title. Then there's the third topic from the top of the page. It's all about links to tutorials.
You'll soon be screaming "STOP! enough ideas already!"
Can't wait to see what you make...

Hi again,
I was able to brighten up your pictures a bit. If you save them to your computer you can use them to replace the ones you now have in your photo hosting and everyone will be able to see your nice work. Let me know when you get them for yourself and I'll take them back out of my photo hosting.
Good luck.

That looks great. Shocked
I love your comments about Coldwater Creek. It's so true. The quality is wonderful and some of the fabrics are so tempting but the styles! Oy! I feel like I'm being tricked into dressing like an old lady!
The covered buttons will be darling. I love your baby-doll pleats so I'd forgo the welt pockets for now, too distracting, and opt for putting pockets with light weight fabric into the side seams.
Rock on, Sista!

The brim is a GREAT original twist. Love it Cheesy

Thanks for your comments, everyone.
I cut the sleeves off and cut up the sides of the original shirt. Then I just laid it flat and used the body of the shirt as if it were yardage, lining up the neckline of the pattern piece with the button placket. I slid the sleeve pattern piece down the shirt sleeve to the place where the width was right and cut the new sleeve top there so it would fit in the new shoulder. After I put the front of the shirt together, I cut the back piece to match the length of the front (shorter than the pattern indicated) so I could use the original shirt hem.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions. Smiley
P.S. Don't forget to eliminate the seam allowances where you won't be needing them. In this case: the sleeve seam and the center front where a facing would have gone.

Not a lot of explanation needed here, I imagine. I used a pattern (Simplicity 5479 from 2003) and incorporated some elements of the original men's dress shirt into the new one (placket, hem, cuffs...). Kinda fun. I'm looking forward to really going nuts with the concept but this was just kind of a slap-it-together endevor. Wink

Thanks Ribble-icious,
I just took an old pull-over sweatshirt and used it as a pattern adding about an inch and a half to the back. I lined up the front edges because I used the skirt hem for that side. I would have added fabric there, too, obviously, if I'd needed to hem it.



If you look at the side view picture with the hood up (above) you'll see there is a gusset at the bottom front of the hood. That's because it didn't reach center front as it should have. Next time I'll measure the neck opening first and pivot the bottom of the hood pattern back enough so the hood reaches all the way around to the center front. Love learning from those mistakes!

Oh good! I just bought 50 old ties on eBay! And I have just got to see what a "toothbrush bracelet" looks like. I'm crackin' up over here Cheesy
Thanks!
