1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to do 16th century style slashes on: February 11, 2010 06:45:33 PM
I've been thinking about doing similar (just with sleeves), and I think this is how I'd go about it:

1) Cut slits
2) Hem slits, so the hole ends up elliptical, rather than just a line.
3) Sew the top of the slashed fabric to the lining fabric.
4) Puff the lining fabric through the hole to the desired degree, and tack into place.

Bear in mind, I haven't attempted this..
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Fashion Fabrics Club Shipping on: December 12, 2009 10:01:13 AM
Fashion Fabrics Club has some very pretty stuff on it, but doesn't even give an indication of how much international shipping costs.

Have any of you fun people ordered from them, and how bad was the shipping cost?

This looks absolutely beautiful - and it's so nicely finished as well.

Do you mind if I ask what size you used?  I'm wanting to make this myself, and you seem to be a similar size to me  Grin

thank you!
nope, i don't mind at all - i cut it to a straight size 8, and the cup size is a C. for the record, i generally wear a 2 or a 4 in ready-to-wear, and a 34D bra. there was a lot of ease in this pattern (and i like to wear my clothes very fitted), hence the smaller sizing. just look at the pattern tissue, it will tell you what the finished dimensions of the garment are!

Thanks very much  Cheesy

I want to make a skirt out of silk dupion.  It's to sit on the waist, and be about 20 inches long, or so, so it finishes a couple of inches above my knee.  I'm debating how to make it.  I'd like it to be pretty voluminous, so I'm looking at doing a 3/4 circle skirt or a gathered skirt as per Gertie's tutorial here.  Which would work better given the fabric?  Should I use a lining, and if so, what?

Well, mostly, modern Scottish and Irish people eat the same kind of thing as the majority of the British Isles.

Traditional recipe-wise, you can't really go wrong with stew, for which there must be a million and one recipes.  Beef or lamb are more traditional meats to use, and the vegetables included would tend to be potato, turnip, possibly swede, carrot, parsnip, and other such things - root vegetables, basically.  With dumplings, this is  one of the loveliest meals going.  We used to have this for school dinners once a week at my primary school ^_^.

Also, soda bread.  I'm not clear on how one makes it, but it's really nice.

Apologies if my English English is difficult to understand  Smiley
