1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hot Head - Another Hat! on: November 26, 2007 11:12:07 AM
My second ever hat - made for a friend's husband for xmas.
I'm modelling it, and I actually think it'll look much better on a guy.
Really pleased with it though Smiley

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Beret - first finished item for myself! on: November 18, 2007 12:13:55 PM
Ok, I haven't been knitting for very long (only a few months) and this is my first finished item that I made for myself.
I'm so pleased with myself!!  Grin

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Terrible trouble reading a pattern on: November 18, 2007 11:50:47 AM
Can someone please give me a hand reading a pattern?
I've been staring at it for ages, and I just cannot work out for the life of me what needles the pattern requires!  Embarrassed

Now I think I'm in that zone where i've looked at it so long, I'll never see it, so if someone could cast their eye over it and let me know how stupid I'm being that would be fantastic  Grin

Pattern is here

Thanks so much!  Kiss
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Halterneck 50s style dress with shrug on: February 10, 2006 08:12:48 AM
I'm fairly new to Craftster - i've been lurking around for a couple of weeks now and i've finally built up enough courage to start my first thread about my very first sewing project!

My close friend is marrying in May, and i wanted to wear a fabulous dress, but one that will flatter my larger-than-average figure.
I'm going to be making McCalls pattern 4286 with a shrug (to cover my hideously fat arms) - McCalls pattern 5006 (the long sleeved one with the ties in front).

What I want to ask though - I would like to have a net skirt underneath the dress to 'poof' it out a bit and make it a bit more 1950s-esque (but still modern...) ....does anyone have any hints or tips about how to do this?
I've got some lovely blue tulle to match the fabric for the dress but i've been staring at it for half an hour now and nothing has come to me  Undecided

Any ideas you have would be very welcome Smiley
