Can you post closer pictures? I like what I see, but it's hard to grasp the details.

I recommend using a tailor's chalk pencil to draw little dots where you want the rhinestones. It's basically a pencil but has chalk instead of lead, so it leaves a temporary mark that you can just brush off at the end. Makes life so easy! Temporary pens are great but can permanently mark your fabric.

I have never seen a more unique pair of heels. I want to pet them!

Oddly enough, I've had good luck searching through the Halloween section of pattern books. I have patterns for trousers, shirts, coats, vests... I can't remember which brand had the best selection, but they're out there! Just keep an open mind about fabrics and details.

Whenever I need to wash or preshrink fabric, I fill up my bathtub with hot water and soak the fabric for half an hour to an hour. You could even add a bit of laundry detergent if you want a thorough wash, just make sure you rinse the fabric repeatedly to get all the soap off. Then squeeze out the water and hang over a pole to dry. I do this with all the fabrics I work with- brocade, lace, denim, cotton.. works every time!

Have you thought about adjusting the pattern? I've found that I can eliminate that horizontal fabric bunching by taking the waist in. It's much easier than adding boning into the pattern.

Here's a suggestion- sell it to me! Man, that is a fantastic coat! 

Is it lined? If not, it shouldn't be too difficult to tailor to a perfect fit.
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do about this? on: April 30, 2009 12:07:19 PM
As long as the fabric doesn't have stretch, I don't see why it wouldn't work with that design. And at that price, no big loss if it is!
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Introducing myself - with a simplicity corset (many pics) on: April 05, 2009 09:27:04 AM
I am absolutely fascinated by that style of neck corset. Looks great! If you don't mind me asking, did you find a pattern for it or did you draft it yourself?

As far as the fabric, it really depends on what you want the end result to look like. If you have never worked with faux fur before, I personally recommend using one with a low pile. Make sure you have the correct needle and tension and sew with the nap, and you shouldn't have any problems sewing with a 'regular' sewing machine.

As for your own pattern, keep in mind whether or not the fabric you choose will have stretch.
