1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Prison Pirate Prom Dress Help! (Intensely Pic Heavy) on: May 31, 2007 12:44:07 PM
The only thing to watch with stripes is your size versus the size the stripes make you look. Horizontal stripes will make you look wider, vertical will make you look thinner.

You can use it to your advantage to accentuate the bits of you that you like, give yourself a slim waist or an hour glass figure, just by playing with the fabric. Don't get very thin and cut it on the bias, you'll look like a walking tornado and don't ask me how I know!

Good luck and yell if you need anything.

I'm in for this one. I've been trying for years to make cute softies and they always end up looking like Adams Family rejects:) This should be a walk in the park!

Citronella oil, lemon grass, orange or lavender can help to deter your furbag:) Buy lots of toys and a scratching post too as sometimes it's just boredom. If it's snuggles he's after then buy him a fluffy bed and a teddy bear, rub them with catnip to attract him, and put it somewhere warm.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where to find dressmaker form for gals like us? on: April 01, 2007 12:47:56 PM
I'm a big girl and got sick of being able to find costume for RenFaire and LARP events. I now specialise in making costume for Real Ladies Smiley

One of the main things you need to do when making your own clothes is have a good set of measurements. We tend to have extra bits to shape around:)

Heres another tip if your thinking of making your own patterns for clothes. Get some old wallpaper and stick a few pieces together side by side by side. Tape it to a wall and get a friend to draw around you. This will help you get the pattern shape closer to your own shape. If I can help with anything else then give me a PM or just ask:)

There is a group on Flickr that is devoted soley to these little bunnies. You should add him to the pool so he'll never be lonely:)

**Please ignore my bunny on there, he's the one that looks a little psycho, he's very sweet really.

I was searching for chemise patterns and came across a page I thought might be of use to you. It's got a free pattern for an old fashioned corset that is designed to hold the breasts flat. They used them under dresses when flat chests were fashionable. You need to scroll down a bit:)
