1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: PATTERN NEEDED--- dress with skirt starting at hip? on: February 12, 2011 09:56:43 PM
I know i have an out of print simplicity pattern from 6 years ago that has a dropped waist and full skirt, but I don't see anything like it right now. 
This pattern has a longer bodice that you could attach a full skirt to.
This pattern has a similar sillhouette to what you are going for I think, even though it is one piece.

Thanks a bunch!

I posted a few different styles, because I am more concerned with the silhouette. Fitted bodice, flared skirt.

I am looking for a dress kind of like this, but the skirt starts at the hip instead of the waist... anyone know of any patterns?

No belt or embellishments in the middle, and if the skirt is longer, that is not a problem. Strapless and sweetheart neck preferred. Thanks! Smiley

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Anyone need help finding pieces? :) on: January 27, 2011 08:51:48 PM
I know this sounds weird, but I have a lot of cosplayer/shadowcasting friends, and am known in some small parts for my "Google Fu." For some reason, I have a strange and amazing ability to find great pieces for costumes, and am relentless in my persuit of them.

I have considered making a pay site for this service, but right now, I am offering it for free.

At the moment, I am quite bored and feel like helping some cosplayers!

If you'd like to ask me for a helping hand, please send me a PM filling out the following:

Costume- be specific! I need character, scene, etc.
Reference pictures- please provide. I can look if I need to, but would prefer not to.
Pieces needed/pieces you already have covered, or own
Budget for entire costume
Budget for individual pieces
Which piece is most important to you?
What details of the costume are you okay doing without, and which are essential?
How willing are you to alter, sew, dye or embellish? This includes altering wigs!
How willing are you to buy used clothes (from eBay?)
Is there a deadline?

That's about it! Smiley

Please comment letting me know you sent me PM.

Byeee! Smiley
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Pattern companies online? on: January 26, 2011 01:49:41 AM
I'm surprised there isn't a sticky subject about this.

Other than McCall/Butterick/Vogue, Burda and Simplicity, what are some non-specialty pattern companies whose websites allow people to explore their pattern styles- particularly ones that do not require sign in info?

Thanks. Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Easy way to change zipper placement? on: January 24, 2011 01:26:14 AM
Is there a trick to this? I want to change a back zipper to a side zipper, and am sewing from a pattern.
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Looking For Print Used in Beckerman Sisters Collection on: January 23, 2011 08:55:51 PM
The Beckermans used this print in several different fabrics. I am looking to find information on it, if not a link to purchase it.

Anyone have any tips?

Oh, well there ya go! That 4th one is great Smiley

I think it might be the winner.
I just have to get rid of the darts, add a second seam, and change the zipper position to the right side.
