1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / altering the crotch on a pants pattern on: November 13, 2009 07:38:35 AM
I'm still a beginner on sewing, and a problem that I have had on pants is getting the crotch to come out right. I'm a petite person that is still curvy because I have the hourglass hips. So when I get the pants sewn - the crotch is too low making the pants look huge and baggy on me. I know there is a line on the pattern piece to shorten it to match your height, are you supossed to do the same on the crotch of the pants as well? I feel like I am missing something.  Huh

Thank you!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Knit.101-The self help guide.... - crocheted bikini pattern error on: August 11, 2009 06:19:54 PM
I just started working on this pattern today and I swear that there are errors in the pattern. Is there any way that I can find corrections?

Row 7 ends at 30 stitches and then Row 8 is supposed to end in 16 stitches. That is going to make an odd looking top.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Exterminate! - Dalek Washcloth on: August 09, 2009 09:44:19 AM
I knitted this washcloth with Lily Sugar n Cream cotton - it's multi-colored. It was my second time ever making a washcloth with a picture knitted into it. It was my first time ever to knit baubles. Unfortunately I lost the link to the pattern - but I am sure you can find it if you google search it. If I find it again - I will be sure to post it. Thank you for looking!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / making lingerie, etc - where to start? on: June 08, 2009 02:02:54 PM
Lingerie can be so darn expensive and made to more general body types so they don't fit me right sometimes. I am petite and a little bit pear shaped. I keep looking at them in stores and then the price and think "I bet I could just try making some of this stuff myself".

Any tips on how to start, where to look, patterns, fabric. Just whatever suggestions you can give me! Thanks!
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Princess Jasmine costume on: May 09, 2009 08:10:28 PM
I am wanting to make her red or blue-green outfit. Also I want to make the little over cloak she wore when she went into the streets. Can any one give me some ideas on what patterns that I can alter for this? Also - ideas on fabric types. Also - I am at a loss on how to make her jewelry - I was thinking about using the super light sculpey. Any ideas?

Thank you!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dress form tips? on: May 01, 2008 08:32:21 PM
In hopes that it would make it easier to sew clothes for myself - I bought a Yamata Dressmaker Dress form - in Petite. I just got it today and started playing with it - I managed to match my height and measurements so far.

Anyways - I wanted to know if anyone could give me any tips and tricks about using it (if there are any). I have never used a dress form before - so anything you tell me would be a big help!  Smiley
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Poppet Fabric question on: April 06, 2008 07:16:15 AM
Okay - I am new at this and I have never sewn a doll before. I do sew though - I was wondering if you could suggest some good but low costing fabric that I could use to practice on for the skin? I don't want to get the good stuff and then some how ruin it. I want to be able to practice on something first.

Thank you!
8  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / fuzzy bunny slipper question on: June 12, 2007 07:33:52 PM
I am trying to start the upper sole - but I am completely confused on how to start the pattern? Can some one maybe explain it in an easier way or maybe draw out a diagram for me or something?

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Ready to start quilting on: April 02, 2007 07:07:51 AM
I knit and love to sew clothes, and I work in a fabric store - one of my co-workers hand quilts and she makes the nicest quilts for the store to display. So I have always had an interest in quilting - I love looking at them - and I love talking to quilters about their newest projects. I just recently discovered from my quilter co-worker that she is hoping to convert me into a quilter.

I think that was the last push I needed to actually decide to try it. What is the best way to go about learning? My co-worker learned how to quilt from books. I can learn from books fine, it just needs to have the information in a way that is easy to understand. Can anyone recommend any good books for beginners?

Thank you!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wheelie sub yarn on: March 19, 2007 07:09:26 AM

Does anyone know a good substitution yarn that I could use? That is easy to get a hold of? I tried looking for the cascade yarn and it's hard for me to find.

Any ideas?
