31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cutting jeans into diagonal strips on: July 06, 2013 01:42:22 PM
I want to make a denim skirt from old jeans. I want the strips to be diagonal like in this pic:

(sorry it's sideways)  What I need to know is if I should cut the strips on the grainline or on the bias or does it even matter? Thanks for looking.

I have been saving them for years just because I feel wasteful and guilty throwing them away. I . recently decided to shove them all in a big bag and donate them to a craft thrift store and let them be someone else's problem.   Undecided

Usually I don't care for color blocking, but your skirt is so pretty. I love the lace

Thanks, both you. Lol it's so obvious now, I'm embarrassed!  I did trace the pattern pieces onto some other paper. The last time I made a dress the pattern was in pretty bad shape from all the changes and cutting and taping and whatnot. But making mistakes is how you learn I guess.
37  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help shortening dress bodice on: March 08, 2013 11:15:14 PM

I want to make Butterick 4443 view F

My problem is shortening the bodice, I've done this successfully before on a dress pattern, but I think it was a simplicity pattern so it was, ya know, simple. On this pattern I don't know what the foldline is,  I didn't see anything about it in the instructions.  Does the foldline affect how much I can shorten the bodice? And does 'for petite' mean that's the foldline for the bodice after I shorten it? Here are some pics to clarify my rambling.

I tried to rotate it idk what happened.

Close up, very sorry that this one is also upside down.


I'm really tired, I hope this made sense.  If not let me know and I'll try to make sense tomorrow. Thanks for looking.

So cute! I love the neckline and I'm impressed that you can make an adorable dress without a pattern
39  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Got a dress form, how do I use it? on: February 06, 2013 08:32:38 PM
So , I made a duct tape dress form and I'm so impatient to use it, but I don't know how! I have started so many dresses and only finished one. I would cut out the pattern pieces and try them on, then take them off and make adjustments, try it on again, etc and eventually I got frustrat ed and quit. Now I have this lovely copy of my body to work with and don't know how to start. Should I cut a muslin using the pattern and tuck and pin until it fits? Do you know where I could get info, a website or book or whatever? Or just tell me your own experiences with dress forms, wether they were successful or not; they'll be helpful. Thanks!

Oh, it's so pretty! I feel like this should have gotten more attention when you posted it.
