1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / wool sweater- too small on: April 25, 2004 08:38:39 AM
sorry for posting this, there is a few other posts about sweaters being too small. i've imed almost all of them trying to see if they ever found something to do with it, a few of them had, but the ideas were different that what i was going for.

i have a blue wool sweater from j. crew that got shrunk. i'm in love with it though, but the arms are too tight on me and the bottom is too short. i don't want to turn it into a skirt, i don't really think the material would work with that. plus, i'd like to keep it as a sweater. if worse comes to worse, i think i'll make it into mittens, but i'd really like to keep it as a sweater. i would just try to reconstruct it but i'm not sure how wool takes cutting and such. any ideas? if you need a picture to help form better ideas, im me and i'll give you one.

thanks!

i love outkast and love their embroidery on the sweaters they wear. so i practiced embroidering last night and i'm all set to go. i think on the front i'll have my initials in a nice fancy cursive font, but what should i have on the back? any suggestions?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / skirt into tube top on: March 27, 2004 02:18:40 PM
today i tore up my closet to find a bunch of clothes that didn't fit me. i've been attempting to fix them with some success. i decided that a skirt i have wasn't right for my legs. it was black and white and went to the middle of my calf, it just didn't flatter me. so i decided to turn it into a tube top. i cut the side to make it smaller, but here is my question, do i need to re-sew it to make it fit or can i just cut it and put velcro on that side? i don't know if the velcro would work.. because it might come undone when wearing it or if it would be too bulgy on the shirt.. i was hoping since you all are experienced clothe makers you could give me some help!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Broken zipper on: March 13, 2004 10:25:19 AM
My friend gave me these great pair of jeans and they fit my perfect, except i need to cut the bottoms. but somewhere between her and i the zipper on them came undone, so it's only attached to one side. my mom said there was no way to fix it, unless i spent money on it and went and got it fixed. and since i'm broke and trying to be cheap, i'm trying to figure a nice creative way to save the jeans. they're perfect rather than the zipper. they don't have a flap, but i was thinking about ripping all the seams for the zipper out, taking it out completely, added a flap and then putting buttons and button holes in. the holes might be hard.. i just feel bad cus it's hard to find jeans that fit me. any ideas?
