1  tutorial like this? apron shirt in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by jeljohns on: December 30, 2007 03:39:00 PM
I'm looking for a tutorial to make a shirt like this.  These are actual aprons, but I would like to make an apron dress type thing to wear over a tshirt and jeans.

Anyone know of any patterns or tutorials that are close?

Thanks!

Most of the skirts I like just say "Cotton" on the tag. Then I think...what kind of cotton? Because that quilting material is all cotton, but if I made a skirt out of that everyone would see my undies! Smiley

I really like this skirt...



It just says "Cotton, lined with cotton"

4  Help with finishing/seaming!!! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by jeljohns on: December 09, 2007 07:26:28 AM
I knit this baby hat as a gift. Everything was going fine and I'm pretty happy with the hat, except then I had to seam it.

As you can see in the pictures the seaming is terrible and crooked (the ribbing doesn't match up).  I really have no idea how to seam. I have watched videos online and looked at all the pictures in my books and I still don't get it. In its current state I don't feel like I can give this hat as a gift anymore.  Can I rip out the seam and try again?  Can anyone PLEASE give me some pointers and suggestions for finishing?  The hat was knit flat, the live stitches were thread with a needle and pulled tight to make the top of the hat. What I need to seam together is the right and left sides of the rectangle.







Update: I ripped out the bad seam in an attempt to start over, but I just am not getting it!

Here is a picture of the left side of the hat. The ribbing ends with purl stitches and it kind of curls over. The second picture is what it looks like when I flatten it. Do I seam the curled part or flatten it out?

This is so frustrating I'm on the brink of tears. It shouldn't be this hard, right?

6  Finally finished my circle skirt from hell in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jeljohns on: March 05, 2006 11:39:41 PM
This is a skirt made out of a tablecloth.  It took me FOREVER to make the waistband because I kept getting bunches. I have another tablecloth to try, so hopefully I can work the kinks out of that one.

Do you mean like this??  Excuse the horrible drawing....the green line is the cut re-sew line.
