That is gorgeous! I had no idea you could do something like that with fabric pens!

That is awesome. I've really been into western graphics and iconography these days.

Flannel can be a great choice, and I've noticed that there are a lot of cute options out there these days. I recently made a dress out of some Maywood Woolies II flannel that looks and hangs like wool, is super warm but isn't itchy at all. This stuff is what I used: http://www.eeschenck.com/default.asp?SuperStore=348&s=348

It's also easy to work with.

Thanks for the link! That bunny print is super cute.

You are in DE, correct? There are some discount brick and mortar stores in Philly (not to mention NYC) that also carry inexpensive wool fabrics. I am more familiar with the New England fabric situation (or the DC fabric scene) and can't advise specific stores in Philly or Delaware.  But I used to live near some jobbers (they sell offcuts, mill ends, stuff from designers and manufacturers and often get their stock in NYC) with a brick&mortar store that had all woolens for $5, wool/cashmere blends for $7, including the really high end stuff - there are probably some similar jobbers in the Philly area.


I have been to JoMarr in Landenburg, and I know there's also one around I-street in Phily. They were really great as fas as prices go, (especially because I caught them during their huge summer sale with 4$ a yard 100% linen of all weights. That ruled) it's just a matter of motivating myself and finding a day to drive up there.

Awesome costume.

It's great to see you on craftster again.

Ok. So my house is freezing, but I'm trying to keep the thermostat on a lower temp this year for financial reasons as well as just trying to consume less. I need to find a way to dress warmer with clothes I will actually wear.


Well, if it's just for home-wear, why get fancy? My place is dead cold, so mostly I wear long johns I made out of fleece,men's wool socks and secondhand sweaters at home!

That's the problem. I'm so vain that if I don't like how the clothes look, even if no one else will ever see me in them, I won't wear them.

Le sigh. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.

Nice.

Though I know this was not your intention, I like that this costume has stirred up feelings. Too many people are completely apathetic these days, or scared to death to utter anything even resembling an opinion in public.

Also, I agree with your original point in one sense, that the sexualization of children is an extremely disturbing trend in our times. It should not be done, and it's so disheartening to see thongs for nine year olds.

What I think is a bigger problem though, is the way that promiscuity carries a much bigger stigma for women than for men. I completely agree that 1000 slutty nurse and cop and bunny costumes gets old and lame really quickly, but I dislike how our culture immediately devalues someone for "showing off". 

I'm not saying that you personally are putting down people who show some leg, but I mean society in general.

This is a very interesting debate.

That's hot. That makes me want to drop everything I'm doing and go sew. Right. Now.
