I have been trying to make a peasant dress from a pillowcase. I followed the vegbee tute here http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/07/peasant-blouse.html for the armholes and sleeves...but for some mad reason that I can't work out the sleeves just don't fit the armhole shapes. So I thought, no worries, I'll have it sleeveless...
So my question is: how should I join the shoulders in order to still have the elasticated neckline?
It was her dance school presentation night on Saturday so I made her an outfit! The fabric was 99p in a charity shop and I drafted the pattern myself. I found some matching ribbon and trimmed an old T shirt.
The turquoise socks were her addition to the outfit!
I was lucky enough to get about 4yards of gorgeous sari fabric for 99p yesterday (about 50cents) and I have an image in my mind of a skirt I'd like to use it for.
It would be ankle length, using the width of the fabric with no hem at the bottom as there is a finished edge there. It will be very full, but the fullness is at the bottom of the skirt, it isn't bulky at the top.The effect is of it flaring out, but with folds and folds of fabric swooshing round my ankles.
The fully skirt patterns I have seen are a little too conventional and not swooshy enough. I'm sure I could do it without a pattern, skirts are easy enough, right?
If a retail outlet wanted to sell your items - buy them, mark the price up and sell them on - would you give them a discount on your normal price in return for a minimum order? How much discount and what quantity of order?
