I really like your front closures. They look great with your fabric and edge combination.

Nicely done. I have that same pattern I plan to make eventually.
3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Regency Costume for School Project on: March 27, 2012 11:51:34 AM
I recently finished a regency dress for my daughter for a project she was doing on Jane Austen.
I raised the bodice to make it more school friendly, I also ended up having to do some slight changes to the bodice for fit and until I was adding the skirt failed to realize I had to let out the skirt slightly too to match the seams. Luckily the trim and lacing help disguise the issue and isn't too obvious. It was my first dress that didn't have a gathered skirt.
I used Butterick 6630.



4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Marshmallows rather than Marshmallow cream? on: February 27, 2012 10:15:00 AM
I've had luck using marshmallows by turning them into marshmallow creme. Add a tbs of corn syrup to 2 cups of marshmallows and melt over low heat or using a double boiler. Two cups of marshmallows equal 7 oz of creme.
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Costumes for Variety show 3 weeks, 3 dresses, 3 corsets on: February 23, 2012 01:11:43 PM
My 13 year old daughter was entering a Variety show at school and volunteered me to make costumes for her and her two friends. From the time we found out she'd be in it to the time of the show I had three weeks.

My daughter designed the outfits and I sewed. There is a layer of tulle between the top of the skirt and the lining to add body. I used my narrow hem sewing foot for the first time and boy was I glad. It made it so much quicker.

I created corsets from some ultra leather. The bonings were zip ties. I also had to make 3 cloaks. I actually finished with two days to spare.

She is doing a biography on Jane Austen next month and I let her know I'd make her a regency dress for the presentation.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I have been enjoying the dressform immensely. I just completed 3 costumes for my daughter's variety show and wouldn't have been able to do it without it.

Absolutely beautiful. I love the victorian era. Those jackets are gorgeous and very well done.
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Beaded reversible tree skirt on: December 29, 2011 09:24:27 AM
We changed trees and my old tree skirt no longer fit. I decided to make my own. The front with the snowmen has small pearl beads on each of the snowmen's hats and small star beads scattered here and there. I made it reversible because I was afraid our pet rabbit would eat the beads. She decided she liked the ruffled edge even better, so unfortunately the skirt didn't spend a lot of time around the tree.  Undecided
Sorry the picture isn't better, but I wanted to show both sides. I made my own bias tape from the ruffle fabric and hand stitched the other side so no seams are noticeable making it truly reversible.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Basic sweatshirt to Zipped jacket on: December 29, 2011 09:18:08 AM
I saw a book recently on embellishing sweatshirts and thought it was a great idea. I only used the basic idea and created by own embellishment.
I took a basic Hanes sweatshirt and split it up the middle. I then cut off all the ribbing. I added my own borders in quilting fabric and added a separating zipper.
There are a few things I would have done different in the collar area, but I think it turned out fairly well. It looks large on my dressform because I made it for my mom for Christmas. I gave it to her as shown, but she brought it back so I could add pockets to it and the matching sweat pants.

Beautiful. I love the little lace up. It finishes it nicely.
