1  Pikachu Commision in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Lamby on: November 20, 2009 08:15:45 PM
I made a pikachu hoodie for a friend! It took me about 2 days, but it was on/off sewing. Smiley
I feel good using my sewing bones again.
She requested it to be long to mid-thigh, tighter at the thigh, really big in general, and huge hood! I'm happy she loves it!!! <3
Everything was made out of fleece, and I used cable ties in the tail to help it stand up and out! You can wiggle it. There are minor mistakes that annoy me a bit, but overall I'm very happy with it.

2  Re: Making Your Own Corset? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Lamby on: May 20, 2007 08:48:09 PM


I finished my corset and wore it to prom. It was absolutely killing me by the end of the night. When I took it off, I had indention of lines going down my body from the cable ties and 2 bruises on my underbust area near the sides.
I used the popular tutorial on craftsters and intead of the milk cartons, I used cable ties with 2 on each side of the seams.

I'm not too sure what I did wrong.

I really do want to use a corset, but not something that would do that to me. >_<;

Hello everyone.  Embarrassed
I've read every single page so far.
It has really inspired me to make a corset.

I have been studying a bit on corsets for a few hours, but the only thing I can't really seem to grasp is where to put the channels. I know it's best to put it in the middle cloth, but is there a pattern of some sort?
For a Elizabethan corset, there's this pattern:


But I want to make a Victorian corset- how would that go about?
Since it would be my first time making a corset, I don't really want to use OHGEEEXPENSIVE! material- so I want to use cable ties. It seems from all the pictures I've been looking at, that the majority is steel and it comes in a slab- how are you suppose to use cable ties then?

My boyfriend (who I dragged to help me research) is just telling me to sew in a cable tie at every inch of the corset, and I'm pretty much like "Noooooooo. I don't think that's how it is." He asked me why not, and I can't really give a justified reason. It just doesn't seem so.  Embarrassed

Another question is when you tape yourself and cut yourself out and make the seams area, what about the boobage area? Won't it curve out? How are you suppose to draw that onto a flat pattern?

Sorry for so many questions- I'm too used to sewing with regular fabric where you can just pin/cut/pin/cut.  Lips sealed

Help would be most appreciated. Smiley
Thank you!

I would recommend you to save these images because sometimes I go on random cleaning frenzies and clean my photobucket- so this probably won't be here forever. Smiley
ALSO: If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
When you finish making the dress, PLEASE post pictures. I would LOVE to see it!<3<3<3

Have fun!

5  Re: "growing out bangs" support group in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by Lamby on: December 25, 2005 02:10:42 AM
My mom just messed up my hair.
I had a side-swept bangs going with my new haircut and she decided to trim the bangs.
I didn't really want to be mean so I let her do it anyways and told her not to take off much or if, at all.
She didn't listen.

She cut my bangs the slant-straight style.
I feel really really bad now.


I can't clip it up because the top part is too short and it sticks up badly, and even if I can clip it back I'll look bad because I sort of have a big forehead.

6  I hope this is the right place- hair problem in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by Lamby on: December 25, 2005 02:06:05 AM
I had my haircut. After I was finished, I loved it so very much.

Then my mom decided she needed to cut the bangs.
I didn't know it was going to be this short.
Everyone says it looks cute and I look Japanese and all.
But one guy disagrees and says I looked better before.

I need to know yall's advice and what I can do to fix it if it does look really bad to you.


My hair right before the cut.
Don't mind the make up and clothing- I was just playing around

My hair after :

This I wanted- an A-line cut. I didn't really want it to be very short so yeah.
I'm planning on teasing the back later when I have the time to.

This is the front-

My mom decided to do that whole "slant-straight" dealie.

I really have mixed feelings about this haircut.
On the positive side- I do look younger than before. Eh.

What do yall think?

7  Coat help: Image heavy..ish? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Lamby on: September 07, 2005 03:37:00 PM
I have just found this wonderful, cute, red coat that I used to wear when I was younger.
Sadly now...it doesn't fit my anymore, but I still want to use it as a coat or something that'll keep me warm (caplet or yeah).
I could wear it just regular, but would that look weird?

Here are some pictures! Cheesy





You can't see the back that well, but in the back it has a strap and two buttons to make it smaller, well..more for design.


I could possibly just add lace on it and wear it regular, but do you guys have any ideas?

Thank you! <3
