11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Poor Man's Dress Form... on: April 29, 2014 04:04:55 PM
Oh man. I helped my mom do one of these years ago. I was taping her up and just going to town when all of a sudden she moved and I realized that there was a lot of extra tape in these "bubbles". It turns out that she was slouching the whole time and didn't realize it until we were almost done! So her form turned out... lumpier than we expected, but it was still fun. I think yours turned out a lot better than ours did.

That is an awesome story...I'm sure you shared some laughs!

You guys are the best. Thank you! Haha, looking at these pictures again I was reminiscing about my long braid being a whip the guys were totally scared of every time I did a spin.

I am SUPER proud of my latest creation! My boyfriend and I have been taking ballroom dancing lessons for a few weeks (we are THE WORST, but we have fun), so I finally have a reason to wear some of clothing I make. I was looking for some inspiration pattern-wise when I saw this one (it's V8908), and I fell in love. The best part is that it turned out exactly how I imagined!

I was really brave with this one. I've previously had bad experiences working with knit, but I just took my time, and that made all the difference. The Chantilly lace and knit are also separate fabrics that I basted together, so that added a lot of time and little bit of worry to the project. It ended up turning out just fine, though. The last step is to French tack the lining, but I actually love the look of the satin peeking out. What do you guys think? Does it look like it's meant to be that way, or should I tack it?

A friend of mine is dancing the Cha Cha in a showcase dance, and she wants me to make her one in red (I think I'll recommend black lace). I'm a little nervous, because I've never had to extrapolate a pattern before. But I think I know where to start. Wish me luck!

It's obviously been really long since anyone has posted on this thread, but I'd love to know if anyone else is willing to meet up in the Chattanooga area. I moved here recently and have no friends here except my boyfriend (who came with me), and I'd love to craft with someone.

Heh, thank you so much! It really was tough not to give up and just buy pre-made ones.
