1  RenFest bodice pattern? in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by sari_clark on: May 29, 2011 07:44:58 PM
So, I don't have the $100+ to drop on a new bodice for RenFest but I do have most of the stuff for making one. Thing is I don't have a pattern D: The type of bodice I want is like this

Like I said I don't have a pattern so I don't know how to go about this. Do you know a patter for something like this or how to draft my own?

@ Alexus1325 - Thank you very much for the patterns. Unfortuantly I'm on a very tight budget for this and while they would help me I'm gonna have to try and do with out. As for the shirt, the more I look at it the more I am starting to get an idea of how to do it. I guess it's just the idea of doing puff sleeves that scares. me. Again, thanks.

@ mummynat - Thanks for the suggestion. I actually have 2 long full skirts with good elastic waist bands. Actually, I did what you suggested for Halloween this year. Only downfall was that the back looked too flat in comparison. Though, if it gets to where I can't make my own I'll just have to make a bustle for the threadbanger tutorial and wear that.

@ Radmom - Well, I have been told I have very lovely calves! Tongue Actually, I have! Strange, I know. I like it too but I'm still a little weary about it. Thanks for the input though!

Alright, I now have one more option but keep in mind, I will be wearing the bloomers to make it a little more school appropriate. Maybe for prom I'll show of this much skin. Tongue Also keep in mind, it would be all black instead of striped.

3  Need help with witch/winter formal skirt in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by sari_clark on: November 30, 2009 04:52:40 PM
The winter formal for my school is coming up in 3 months and I figured I better get a head start on making my dress. Thing is, I've hit a little snag before even starting to make the dammed thing!

What I'm making is this:

It was made by HarleyQuinn1121 on Deviantart
It's a long sleeved shirt, an underbust corset, bloomers, and a skirt.

Bloomers and all...except the wand and hat. My problem is the skirt. I'm not sure if I want to go with a skirt like that one or one of these styles to show off the bloomers.

It would all be made of black fabric and the skirt would not be lined if the third option is chosen. I was hoping that you people could help me chose as well as help me figure out how I would go about making the skirt (if the second or third choice is picked) as well as the shirt. Specifically the puffy part of the sleeves and the neck line. I know, I'm a noob at sewing.
