1  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"?
2  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 (:
