51  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Halp! Two pattern sizing questions on: July 16, 2009 09:16:57 PM
Hi! I'm trying to get back into sewing/Craftster, but hit a few questions in my pattern-hunting. One is stupid, one not (I hope).

1) So, high bust or full bust?  I feel silly for having forgotten which measurement to go by.  Everyone on the internet seems to have a different answer.  Undecided

2) I know that modern patterns tend to have a LOT of ease written into them. Would a pattern from the 1950's or early 1960's have more ease or less?? I was thinking less because the clothes are generally tighter, but than again they would probably be using fabric with less stretch too it.  Hmmmm.

When I saw this title I said "I hope this involves a GIANT bow" ... way to not disappoint.

This is really cute!  I feel like the bow should be worn a little more to one side though?

The construction on yours looks great, but I think this would work better in a more "serious" fabric to counterbalance the children's wear look.

This looks ridiculously cozy!

WHERE did you find that ruffle lycra??  What an awesome idea.

If you didn't say this was a quick project I would have thought it was really difficult.
56  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Working with ball bearings? on: March 20, 2008 05:17:34 PM
So, I have no knowledge about jewelry making (but kind of know my way around a soldering gun if that helps) but I want to make a necklace out of ball bearings.  Not ball bearing chain, but actual ones.  Has anyone here ever tried something like this before?

That's such a cute idea!

I have to go thrift some cardigans now...
58  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: just started with digital photography on: February 29, 2008 08:33:21 PM
I think the original photo is so interesting on its own that you shouldn't use the spot color effect.  You could up the contrast, or make the entire photo black and white if you don't think the original is bright enough.  When you do really obvious Photoshopping, people might assume that you also photoshopped the zebra into the picture in the first place, and you'll lose the whole impact of the shot. 

On a more personal note, making part of the picture B&W reminds me of those cheesy cards with the little kids kissing, its a fun thing to do with photo editing, but it looks amateur.  I think the key with starting out in a photo-editing program is to be as subtle as you can, because its really easy to go overboard.  IMO, the original print is much more sophisticated and artistic than the altered one!

I love how this is so subtle, but you can completely understand the inspiration.  And the construction looks great too. 

Where do you go to school?  (Is that a creepy question?? It just sounds like an interesting assignment)

I covet this.

I'm thinking plain fitted tee shirt.  Maybe white, grey, navy...
