Great blouse! It does look really nice on you. If you don't mind me asking, what ready-to-wear size do you usually wear? I usually wear an 18 or 20, but in pattern sizes, I'm like a 26 or so. Basically, I really want to make this shirt, but I don't think it's big enough for me. Does anyone have an idea of how easy it would be to alter it a bit? (Maybe I won't mess with it But, anyway, lovely job! very jealous. Robin
Want...make...mittens...:-) I love ocean-y-themed things. And if the pattern is available soon, I'll start right away, since I've never really done...intarsia? or is it fair isle? Shows how much I know! I'll have a few months to get it straight before it gets cold!
Also, I'm thinking, maybe not the best pattern to be trying out intarsia/fair isle? Aw, but I always jump right in the deep end.
Thank you so very very much for taking the time to make the pattern available!
ack ack ack! I'd appreciate any pattern stuff too, I just started the other day, so I have a while to find the rest of the pattern. I googled the designer/their website/etc, but I only found references. I wish "Strange But Trewe" were still around, the penis cozy was funny and I wanted to try the doknit.
Thanks so much for your opinions, everyone! I got all the materials free from my mom, so I'm not sure I can price them that way, but I'll figure something out. Mostly I just wanted to know if anyone liked them. Thanks for all the compliments! Robin
very nicely done, they look very professional and very pretty! Even the ones I wouldn't personally like look great (turquoise isn't my thing). I make beaded stuff (I'm amateur, not pro), and your stuff looks well-made. My favorite is the blue and white/silver skittle necklace (great name, btw), and if I weren't so goshdarn poor I'd totally pay $20 for it. Good luck with everything! Robin
I've heard that you should take the cost of the materials x2, then give yourself at least minimum wage for the time it took to make it. If, however, you're like me, and the stuff you made it with was free to you, then, it's a bit more tricky. I'd say definitely up the price the more difficult it was to make/intricate the piece is. Good luck!
