1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / RenFest bodice pattern? 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?

This thread and all of you amazing people have been the last 'push' I needed to finally decide that I'm going to go for the hair color I want! Problem is, I don't know how to go about it  Embarrassed

I've always wanted to have orange/red hair. Something like these:

Middle picture for this one ^^

I've dye my hair about 2-3 times a year for the past 5/6 years. Currently I have dark dark brown hair. It's almost black with some streaks of a copper color because I didn't have enough dye to properly cover my hair. I dyed it at the end of July. It's pretty healthy and I just got most of the split ends and general 'bad-ness' cut off two weeks ago. So, now that I've told just about everything there is to know about my hair, any of you know how I can get my dream color on my own?

Something else you might want to consider is selling them on Etsy. I know I would love to have one (if only I have the money. Cry) Either way these are amazing, and I gotta say I do love the simplicity of the blue one but that's just my personal taste. Tongue

I've been wanting to make a homemade bread for ages! I have 1 question though, can I make this in a bred pan?

@ 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.


8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help with witch/winter formal skirt 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.

Thanks so much for the tute! I'll definitely have to make a few of these for Christmas.

I was wondering though, where is it that you keep the checkbooks? Just in the crease?

Thanks again for sharing this awesome tute!

Thanks to both of you but fortunately I found the right needles at JoAnns online store. Hopefully I'll be able to get over to the actual store sometime soon. Now all I have to do is find the right color yarn and figure how much I'm gonna need. Wish me luck!
