3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need this shirt (now with links) on: May 08, 2008 12:12:44 AM
I posted this in the needlework section but I figured someone here could help me so here we go...

After seeing this video I went to check out Girl Popcorn's esty shop were I stumbled upon this awesome top and I fell in love. Problem is... it's not my size but I figured I can make it. So I run out and bought an embroidery foot, stabilizer, sharpies and tape.

side note:I did make a bootleg butterfly (I think its kinda cute...but bootleg none the less). So not a total waste of money. I even printed out a dragonfly for my next freehand embroidery project.

Now I want to attempt this top and I am not sure where to start. I do know that you use the stabilizer to keep the shape but not real sure what happens to the fabric. If anyone could help (something with pictures would be AMAZING!) I would be forever grateful.http://

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Wanting to make a skirt like this... on: May 06, 2008 09:38:53 AM
a while ago a girl posted some egl skirts and she had a tut for a skirt that ties in the back with ruffles... you could adapt that by adding more layer and tying it in the front.

here is the link to that thread. the tut is further in the thread like on page 3 or 4 but u can see the actual skirt in her pics

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Home made dress makers dummy on: November 12, 2007 10:30:28 PM
I tried the duct tape dummy and I didn't like it but I will say mine was kinda flimsy(cheap duct tape and my self diagnosed ADD) So you may have better luck with it. If you do decide to try it here is a link for a stand made out of pvc pipe that I think will be easier than the hanger stand (my dummy was too heavy for that stand) I gave up before I tried this one but I think it would work better:

I also have a full belly and I make most of my clothes without the dummy. I do full tummy adjustments to patterns that come out fine with some tweeking and measuring. Here is a link to the lady that helped me when I wanted to get more serious about sew for myself and if you need any help I will be willing to help the best that I can.
