1  Black and white striped corset (image heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by annamaria on: February 28, 2006 03:24:17 AM
I've made this corset with this free pattern http://www.dtta.dk/x/intro_uk.htm (thank you Krinil for posting that link!). I've made a few changes to it though - added an inch all around the bottom edge, made the straps wider and added a seam on the front piece.

So here is the pictures (and No, I wont wear those pants with the corset, it looks awful).
Oh, and please ignore the redness around my nose and my tired eyes, I've got a cold.

2  Skull shirt for my nephew in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by annamaria on: January 29, 2006 04:20:54 AM
I made this sweater for my nephew for Christmas. It's made of fleece.

I just had to show you these pictures because I think its so sweet - he is sitting on a pattern sheet playing with the measuring tape Smiley He is 2 1/2 years old and always ask if he can help me. I wonder if he will keep his interest in my sewing. I hope so!

3  Tutorial for the collar in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by annamaria on: September 27, 2005 07:54:32 AM
Tutorial for Peter Pan collar

You can make this collar for any blouse or shirt as long as it has an opening in the front.

Pattern drafting

1. Take the center front piece and center back piece of your pattern. If it has darts at the shoulder temporarily move it/them to the side (a).


2. Lay the pattern pieces shoulder to shoulder, overlapping 1-2 cm at the armhole (b).

3. Take a piece of paper and put it over the pattern. Trace the neckhole, but lower it 0,5 cm at the front (c )
Draw a line 6,5 cm from the neckhole and draw the center back and center front lie as the picture shows.


4. Cut out the collar pattern and make two folds, 1cm at the outer line and 0 at the inner (d). Make sure that the pattern still is flat.

5. Shape the front of the collar (e).


Sewing the collar

6. Fold the fabric and put the pattern with the side marked center back against the fold. Cut it out with 1 cm seam allowance. Do the same thing again, so that you have two pieces.

7. Put fusible interfacing on one of the pieces. Put the pieces right sides together and sew 1 cm in along the outer side (marked in pink).


8. Press the seam apart cut little triangles in the seam allowance at the rounded part, and turn it so that the right sides are out. Press the collar so that the seam isn't visible from top. Sew about 2-5 mm in all around the outer edge (pink). This will help the collar keep its shape.

9. Attach the collar to your garment.


I'm not very good at explaining things, but I hope you understand it. Good luck!
