1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mexican folkart inspired frame on: February 04, 2012 02:11:12 PM


I made this frame for the awesome Gocco print of a calavera Buddy Holly my friend gave me for Christmas. The sacred heart/microphone is glitter craft foam. The bottlecaps are filled with old 45's labels and black glitter. I am proud to say that the only purchase I made to finish this project were the epoxy stickers in the bottlecaps. Of course, the rest barely dented my stash... I think I have to make more!

To give credit where credit is due, the print was made by Jose Pulido and purchased on Etsy.

What do you all think?

It does take some basic math, but the rest of the pieces are cut to your measurements.

On the RTW dress, all the parts are cut on the straight.  The Vogue pattern incorporates a lovely pointed midriff band that is cut on the bias, but the bust and back are on the straight as well.

It sounds like you need to do a full bust adjustment (FBA).  Here's a tutorial and a list of other tutes from Sew, Mama, Sew: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2008/05/full-bust-alterations-or-adjustments-fba/

Perfect!  I thought that was the too-easy solution.  Thank you!

I own this dress: http://heartbreakerfashion.com/dresses/aimee-dress/aimee-dress-dandy.html and am working on recreating it in a different colorway.  I am using Vogue 9668 (OOP) which is nearly an exact match, but it calls for a bias cut four panel skirt.  The dress I own has an a-line skirt cut on the straight grain.  I like the way it hangs and would prefer to save a little material. What should I do to convert the skirt pattern piece (other than the obvious elimination of the center seam)?

If you want to make yourself drool, you should pore over Kendra's costumes.  They are mouthwatering.

If you don't have access to a theater or costume supply place, try using eyelash glue from the cosmetics aisle at the drugstore.

I bow in awe to your mad stripe-matching skillz.  You have the patience of Job.
