that definitely looks like the kid from malcolm in the middle!  Check Vogue, I've seen a floor length version of this dress.

ditto on the sitting question!  does it just bunch up around your lower back so you can't use the back of a chair or what?  OH and both exhibit excellent sewing abilities, very impressive!

I agree with PinkyK.  If I were on the show, knowing nothing of mens wear, I would've stuck to something that's do-able.  Also, how did they not know how to make men's pants??  They're easier than women's, men's pants drape instead of fit like a lot of women's pants.  Lastly, How the heck did Eliza hand sew all of that? (didn't she say she only handsews?)

Oh gosh!! These are just stunning.  I hope I can make things even half as cute as those dresses for my future kids!

Holy Crap that was SCARY!  I was using my page down key looking at your pics and then BAM zombie vampire!  geez.  The jacket's awesome.  You totally rocked that recon!

First of all, the dress is gorgeous!

I have also run into that problem with newer patterns.  If you get patterns from the 70's or earlier they're often a tad (less than an inch) smaller, which is sometimes too tight b/c the clothes are already designed snug.  The best solution I've found is to measure the actual pattern and compare the measurements and locations w/ your own measurements.  Good luck!

I guessed that Eliza would stay.  Anyone who watched tonight would watch next week's just to find out what Eliza's going to say next. "I'm just going to hand-measure you" .... mmmm, i've heard of eye balling things before.

That looks just like what I'm wearing today!!

It's a mild 50 something degrees fahrenheit here and I've got it paired with thick tights and little ankle booties.  You should definitely keep it a dress and wear it year round!  Another option would be wearing the dress w/ skinny jeans and flats.  The key to pulling it off is since it is a dress, keep the legs accentuated so you're not swamped in a bunch of fabric.  Hope this helps you transfer the dress into winter wear!  Cheesy

I love audrey hepburn.  What about studying her style and then modernizing it?

btw - I love the poofy sleeves on the paris university shirt, very chic
