1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Beginner Knitter trying to Knit a Cable Knit Scarf! on: November 30, 2010 09:44:25 PM
Does anybody have a pattern similar to this cable knit scarf?
There's tons of cable knit scarf patterns out there, but I can't find any as thick and long as this scarf ! I really love the width and the fullness of the scarf!

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / I need soooo much help just in reading the pattern envelope!!!!!!! on: October 10, 2009 11:33:53 PM
http://www.simplicity.com/p-1643-misses-special-occasion-dresses.aspx

You can find the pattern envelope on the same page, next to product details. So I want to make the yellow dress above, Dress B. Exactly how much fabric do I need yardwise? Because I noticed it talks about interlining/bodice, do I need more fabric for that...or does it just mean the 3 7/8 yards?
I measured my bust today and it said I was 41...and my waist was off the charts...but I'm a size 6 normally...i'm confused.
It also says 45" and 60", is that the height of the dress? 45" the shorter dress? If this is so....why does the 60" require less fabric than the 45"?

sorry about all the questions. but you have answered all of them (:

last question: for the lining, what kind of fabric should I use under the organza?
btw. i think I will use a little tulle at the bottom to poof it if it falls to flat (:
Thanks!

this is actually the dress. i found that someone else had posted it on this site, and i wanted to do the same (:
but i have some skills in sewing, but not much in dresses, just simple things like fixing a patch or whatever (: i know that's not much but its something.
thanks for everything!
but i was wondering mainly how to make the dress poofy and crazy at the bottom, not just straight across at the bottom.

NOT like this: http://www.fashionproducts.com/articles/blue-prom-dresses.jpg
see how its just straight across on the bottom, i want it more like the dress on the top link, so do i just gather it?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making a prom dress! Fabric/sewing help! on: August 17, 2009 02:40:56 PM
Trying to start on my senior prom dress for next year, but I have soooo many questions. Even if you just answer one, it  would be great (:

1. I am a size 6/7, and about 5"4, and I want to make a short dress, how many yards of fabric do I need, I'm making my dress out of organza, so how much of that would I need to wrap around the dress twice? And how much liner would I need?

2. Which color of liner would match under an ivory/yellow organza?

3. How can I make my own pattern, I have heard making strapless dresses are freaking hard because they can look extremely awkward if I do it wrong, so how can I make my own pattern???
 
4. If I use organza, will the dress become poofy? I don't want it to fall flat!!!

5. I want to pleat the dress, not a perfect pleat, but all over the dress at random places, how do I do this? i dont want the dress to be like exactly straight and cut at the bottom.

6. And lastly...if you would reccommend a dressmaking/sewing book, what have you found super helpful in making clothing?(:

THANK YOU (:
