1  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: Mccall 5177 badly drafted sleeves on: November 01, 2006 03:18:15 PM
That is really tough.  I guess my initial thought was that the material you used should have had stretch in it.  My second thought was that perhaps you could switch it to raglan sleeve and give a little more fabric in the top of the sleeve area, so basically completely remake the sleeves. Using a fuller sleeve at the shoulder won't give you the look you want, but I don't see how you will get out of that problem unless you use a stretchy fabric.  Good luck!

I like. You could also use it maybe as a bookend if it stood up, or use it to hang something from.

Oh gosh I think that would be a bad idea. Milk crates or pallets don't sound sturdy to me, since they are made to be broken down easily, right?  Those plastic crates would be really sturdy and could hold up a matress nicely, but that might end up being kind of pricey.  I think when it comes to your back you should definitely build something that will offer enough support.

The cork board does tend to absorb the paint, though, so you have to use a fair amount. Other than that it works perfectly, doesn't get crunchy or anything.

I just received my stuff from seaofstars, so cool. It's a gray woolen shawl with pink lace and a beaded pin. Also there is a belt made in a similar way but it may not be a belt and might be just a smaller shawl. Pictures soon!

I still haven't sent my stuff out yet due to finals this week but it promises to be neat.

Thanks seaofstars!

Such a cool blanket. I love the slight difference in the colors, it almost looks painstakingly placed that way.

Just in time...

I made a Halloween dress out of some velour-ish fabric. It's pretty much complete garbage, but it looks good from the outside. First, here's the fabric: 

This dress is basically a circle skirt that I made too big, so I folded the fabric over in the back to make one big center pleat and sucked the pleat into the seam when I sewed the top and bottom together.  I cut the back longer than the front.  I ruched the center of the bust and added criss-cross straps.  I didn't use a pattern, but next time I'll make one so my dress comes out more even.  Here's the dress:

With the leftovers I made my cat a vest:

That's my October-a-long!
