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.
35  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
37  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.
39  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Simple quilt for my darling mother on: December 28, 2012 12:53:58 PM
   My mom has been asking me to make a quilt for her for years and I've always been busy, but this year I'm not in the middle of baby quilts or anything that has a deadline. So in September I decided to make a quilt, in late November I decided on a very simple design that wouldn't stress me out, early December I bought the fabric, December 22nd I panicked and finally put the damn thing together almost in time for Christmas. My machine went on strike so I had to finish it at her house after she opened it. Whatever, it's done and she loves it.
     I used polyester batting for the first time, I hate it and will gladly spend extra for cotton batting in future projects. I used symphony broadcloth from Joann's for the dark brown border and also don't care for that. It smells weird; and it feels weird next to the 100% cotton fabrics.

Here it is, not quite done, but done enough to wrap up and give her.

It was supposed to be a lap quilt, but ended up being about 65"x75". Too big for a lap quilt and too small for her bed. Meh.

Creepy Kitty wasn't happy that the quilt was taking attention from him.

And here it is, not quite done, but done enough to wrap up and give her.

***Update: I made this to match her living room and a wall hanging I made for her birthday so she could use it while watching tv in her favorite chair. Instead it's folded up at the foot of bed. She says it's too pretty too use. I know people mean that as a compliment, but it irks me when I spend so much time making something and then it doesn't used.  Angry

I just went through a bunch of crap to recover my email and password so I could tell you: I freakin' love it! It fits you so well and it's a perfect balance of sexy and cute.
