Yeah, a circle skirt is simple in theory - but less simple when you want to make it longer/wider than the fabric allows if that makes sense.

Well, you could cut half circles or quarter circles and sew them together to get your full circle if the fabric is too small.

Oh man, I hope I'll have time to finish up the stuff I'm working on now before the swap starts. I can't miss it. As for questions, I'd like to know favorite characters, episodes, maybe quotes. But mostly, I hope I get paired with someone who is as hardcore a fan as I am. I never miss an episode and rewatch them all the time. I love me some Adventure Time.

For anyone asking for a pattern, she sells it on her site.
134  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help sewing top - where does the hole to turn it go? on: September 29, 2011 04:33:21 PM
The fact that I have to ask this question probably means I have no business attempting what I am at this point, but it's too late to turn back now. I'm making a satin top that is lined with cotton. No sleeves, but there are straps. There is also a ruffle coming out of the bottom. I am attaching a sketch to hopefully explain better.

Okay, now my problem is that I have no background in sewing garments and for some reason just can't wrap my head around this. I don't know where to leave a gap in the seams to turn it right side out. I've tried it 3 different places and keep ending up with bizarre tubes that aren't even close to right. The closest idea I've come up with so far is to sew the satin and cotton into their respective tubes, then sew the tubes together at the bottom to sandwich the ruffle and then I'd have to leave the entire top open and...uh, I guess hand stitch it after that? Is that right?

This is one of the best looking unicorns I've ever seen. I love the personality and character that you packed in here and of course rainbow unicorns or sort of my favorite thing ever anyway. This is awesome. You are awesome.

This is so amazing, yet again. Do you ever do socks like this?

Hmm. I guess where I got hung up was how the circle would attach to the V shaped fin part but I think I'm over complicating things again so I'll just go cut out a circle and play with it. Thanks for the help, guys. I really appreciate it.

Okay I need some advice, but I'm not sure if I should post it in the general sewing questions forum or whatever. I am pretty dead set on how I want to do my niece's mermaid costume's skirt but am having trouble figuring out the shape I need to be cutting for the fins.

http://www.costumesupercenter.com/girls+costumes-clearance/IC7011-elite-magical-mermaid-child-costume.html

That's basically what I want. I know I don't want the fin to be gathered along the bottom of the skirt because with three layers, that would be too much bulk and I don't like gathering anyway. I want it to have the fluttery sort of edge and extra volume, so I know the front and back of the fin will probably be circular in shape with the inner circumference matching the edge of the bottom of the skirt. But...I don't have a ton of fabric for trial and error (I'm working on some ugly stuff that was given to me right now) so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction before I waste any more. I've already made 3 different fins before it clicked that I need to be doing a circular shape. I just can't wrap my head around how it should be short of "vaguely circular". Help?

You designed all of those fabrics? That's so cool. I really like the last two; it's one of my favorite color palettes. So cheery. The first pillow is really cool, too. Almost reminds me of a paint-by-number but not quite.

That's really cool. I admit to not being as big a Nick Cave fan as you are (I love the song "Loverman" but haven't heard anything else. I'm afraid it wouldn't live up to how awesome that song is.), but I like what you did with the pillow. Did you machine stitch around the hair or do it by hand? Either way, awesome pillow. You know what? You've inspired me to go listen to some more Nick Cave. It's past time.
