1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Making a store bought top bigger?? on: February 25, 2009 09:48:36 AM
Hi,

I am going to be in a belly dance show, and the required bolero for my costume is way too small. It is a size Large but it is too small everywhere especially in the bust  Sad

Is it possible to take the top apart and add fabric to each individual piece and then sew it all together? I bought an extra top to use for fabric. I am a novice but I am willing to try anything.  I haven't had much luck with local alterations shops. I am desparate because if I can't make the top work, then I can't be in the show.

I noticed someone had a similar issue with a t-shirt, but in my case, the top has to still look the same as the original.  Here is a link to what the top looks like. All suggestions are appreciated!

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My favorite gift! Journal Set & Greeting/Note Cards (IMG Heavy) on: December 29, 2007 10:53:26 PM
Hello fellow Craftsters... This is my 1st post! A very crafty coworker of mine made some lovely Christmas gifts for me. They are really beautiful, and the pics don't do enough justice!  

The first is a set that includes a journal, flower pen, and a jar. The jar contains folded slips of paper with topics for me to journal about. My friend instructed me to blindly pick a slip from the jar, tape it to a page in the journal, and write about it. For example, one of the slips reads "What were your favorite places to go with your family when you were young?" This was such a perfect gift for me-- it's an easy and fun way for me to get back into my writing.

Once I use up the paper in this jar, I plan to refill it with something different, such as different words cut from magazines. Each day I could pick a few words from the jar, glue them to a page in my journal, and come up with poetry that includes those key words. I have tons of other ideas of what i can do with this set! As a gift, it can be easily altered to meet the recipient's individual tastes and interests.

The 2nd set of pics are the greeting/note cards that this same friend made for me. They are for different occasions, such as Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You, etc. Two have vellum paper inside with quotes or  poetry stamped on them.

I couldn't have asked for a better gift! Thanks for looking Smiley
