1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Plus size mods dress? on: April 02, 2011 10:46:51 AM
I'll be in a 60's mods themed photo shoot (I'm not sure when...), and I realized that finding clothes will probably be quite a challenge, since most vintage clothes from that time are either tiny, or really expensive (or both!), so right now I'm thinking of sewing something...

Does anyone have any good pictures of plus size mod ladies? Or perhaps just has some general tips of how to make a simple knee length a-line dress look as flattering (but still 60's) as possible...

Oh, perhaps I should mention that I tried to do a search, but I just found about a thousand pages about mod podge or things that had been altered (or things about moderators...)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Reconstructing. Help/ideas please? on: April 11, 2008 05:40:40 AM
I have a red t-shirt, and I quite like it. It fits me, except that it is too short. I have a black t-shirt that's also too short, and I've been thinking of turning the two into one. 
Does anyone have ideas or tips on good ways that would work?

Here are pictures. The first pic is so you can see how it fits/looks now, and the second one mostly because it's closer to the actual colour of the shirt.



I'm also reconstructing a hood sweater (or whatever they are called in English.) I'm from Sweden, and we call it "huvtrja".
Anyway, it's beige, I'm not crazy about the colour nor the overall look of it.
I got enthusiastic and cut the sleeves off. I've also removed the front pocket and cut it open in the front, I'm going to add a zipper, and maybe two large pockets. I need to add more width in the bottom, since I'm one of those big bottomed girls. Should I use fabric from the sleeves or maybe some contrasting colour? What do you think? Please let me know! I'm thinking of dyeing it when I'm done making the other changes... Maybe green.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hedwig and the angry... mittens? on: March 29, 2008 07:12:56 AM
I got some wool sweaters at a thrift store more than a year ago, and I felted some of them (washed them in a washing machine), and finally I made something out of one of them. This used to be a gray lambs wool sweater. It was nice, but way too small, even before i felted it.
The mittens are all hand sewn, and I embroidered with some lovely thin wool yarn. I'm in love with that blue colour.  Grin
I have just recently seen the film Hedwig and the angry inch, and I was inspired while making the embroideries.  Wink
The mittens look quite wonky and strange, but feel real nice, and I can see the embroideries on them perfectly when I'm riding my bike.
Anyway, here are some pictures (I struggled with my mothers camera for ages, but I can't seem to be able to get one decent photo...)
