3  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / fashion show.. what to wear!! on: January 14, 2007 05:39:13 AM
so on january 22nd, the museum of fine arts in boston is having this exhibit on fashion, complete with a designer fashion show, meeting with stylists, and a sort of party.. what do i wear?!? i think a dress would be a little too formal. maybe some black dress pants, but i have no idea what shirt to wear.

MY IDEAS:
- a kimono-style top, in a solid color, long enough to reach my butt.. the only problem is, i want to make it tighter around the belly area than a regular, loose kimono... any patterns/pictures/suggestions?

any other ideas would be great. im looking for a nice, flirty top that would just stand out, but not too over-the-top, and also warm enough!

thanks guys!!!! <3

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / SEWING MACHINE HELP PLEEASE on: August 21, 2006 01:44:57 PM
so the past couple days when ive been using my sewing machine the thread keeps on breaking on me, every couple inches of sewing or so. i adjusted the tension but nothing seemed to work... the tension can be set on 3, 2, 1, auto, -1, -2, or -3.. i tried each one, but still --- the thread breaks every couple inches. i thought that it could be the fabric, so i tried thinner fabric, and that didnt work either. can anybody help me??  Sad
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pink prom dress! on: April 14, 2006 07:16:49 PM
so i wanted to make a pretty dress for easter as sort of practice to make my prom dress this year.. however, when i came home from the fabric store i realize i never even got the pattern i picked out and swear i placed in the cart!! so, patternless, and only 5 days till easter, i thought id just save the pretty fabric for somethin else.
but today i was oh so bored, so i made this without a pattern or anything. i think it turned out pretty nice, what do you guys think??
