If you're into fashion, you can always check style.com and look at the fashion show coverage.

Pantone is also a good predictor of color trends. Here's their report for Fall 07: http://pantone.com/pages/pantone/Pantone.aspx?pg=20367&ca=4

Ooh, yours is lovely. I saw it on Dress a Day, too, and it's the next on my list of projects to make. I just have to find two prints I like together. I may end up putting a zipper in it, too, I don't like my dresses too billowy.

I'm in the middle of making this, too! And it is super easy, but just too hot to iron the hem in right now. I'm doing it in a green quilting print with white trim and little white rabbit buttons.

I bought the new Butterick pattern and am in the middle of making it. I just finished cutting it out, but the whole thing seems really simple. I'll post pics when it's done!

So, it's comfortable then?

It's really comfortable, actually. It won't last forever, I imagine, as the peanuts do get gradually broken down, but it's good for now, and absolutely free.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Morton Salt Girl Pillow on: January 29, 2006 06:09:44 PM
People are always hanging out in my dorm room, more often than not on the floor since seating is at a premium, so during Winter Break I thought it might be a good idea to use up some of the packing peanuts we have tons of to make beanbag chair-like pillows. This navy/white stripe fabric was just something I had lying around for forever, but the pillow itself turned out really comfortably.

Here it is in its natural habitat. There are other pillows that I need to make covers for (I'm a throw-pillow-aholic) and some other oddly shaped pillows that I made in the same way, but with fake fur I had.

(Excuse the horribly messy looking room, that dark red rug is a magnet for lint from my beige shag rug)

To spruce it up a little, I did a stencil of the little Morton salt girl (don't ask me why, it just seemed to fit) on another scrap of the same fabric and whipstitched it on. Everybody agrees that it's really cute and it spends a lot of time getting sat on.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can I wear pleats? on: January 04, 2006 08:07:24 PM
I have the same issue, but some styles can look really flattering. I'm giving you skirt examples, but I imagine they could easily be changed to suit a dress. If there's a separate yoke and the pleats are small, like in this one:
http://www.fossil.com/jump.jsp?itemType=PRODUCT&itemID=23597&iMainCat=1056&iSubCat=1069&PSID=YHOSHOPFEED000000FO0000000&PBID=999990087
it's a nice, slimmer silhouette than most of them.
Another, sexier, style is stiched-down pleats like
<a href="http://images.overstock.com/f/102/3117/8h/www.overstock.com/images/products/MLB414862.jpg">this</a> or <a href="http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/product.do?BV_SessionID=@@@@1728183874.1136433107@@@@&BV_EngineID=cchhaddgjhgekgjcegecegjdghldgfk.0&vertical=SEARS&sid=I0080602340004200085&pid=007A1191000">thiis.</a>

I really like that second style because it can balance you out if you're heavy on top, like I am.

Oh, thanks for posting those pics! I kept meaning to do them but it's been a hectic week, school-work wise. I used the bag yesterday and everybody asked me where I got it, it's fabulous. I'll do some action-shots for you this weekend!

I received my package today from Jesintexas! It has probably been here a few days, but I just got back from Fall break, and it was a wonderful suprise. The knit bag is now my new favorite purse, I'll post pics as soon as I can. Thank you so much!

My favorite to do is button-down shirts. In high school, we had to wear white oxford or polo shirts, and I had a great time doing skulls and crossbones or martini glasses or whatever where the logo should go on the chest. I think it's a great way to dress them up.
