Aww, that is so cute!  I would totes wear it with a black fitted t-shirt and my Doc Martens, just to go shopping and out for coffee/lunch.  It looks pretty comfy too.

I usually try Ebay/Etsy for past issues of any pattern magazine.  I'm afraid that's the only resource I have.  Did you try searching on Amazon?  Their used book sellers might have a few. 
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pressing tulle? on: September 19, 2008 03:56:58 PM
I want to make a tulle circle skirt with several layers.  However, most of my tulle has been folded up in storage (not crushed, just folded).  How would I make it smooth and press seams?  Should I even try?  I can probably cut it without pressing but I don't know what to do about the seams.

Awesome!  I always love your stuff.  I wish I could do bleaching though -- it never works when I try it.  I usually use the Clorox bleach pens, but they don't bleach the fabric enough.....maybe I'll try again with the tutorial.

Wow!  I would totally wear those, except they'd look dreadful on me. 

I agree, success is when you want to wear your creation out of the house RIGHT NOW.

I am officially jealous of your boyfriend.   Wink

I looked at the patterns and at the Simplicity 4055, which I think would be the easiest of the 3 to make.  In my experience, Simplicity has the most forgiving fit/instructions for beginners.  Since you have 6 weeks, I would take into account your time and patience because even for an experienced sewist, a gown like this can take around 15 hours to finish.  The patterns assume you WILL line the garment and whether or not you have put in a zipper before may be a consideration as well.  Puffy sleeves are actually easier than fitted sleeves for me because it's ok if they wrinkle a bit where fitted sleeves look bad if they show any mistakes.  

Personally, I'd pick an easier pattern and something I could have more fun with but to each their own!

Do you have scraps of the material left?  I would try experimenting on those first.  Otherwise, I second dry cleaning. 
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tiny Maternity Clothes? on: August 25, 2008 07:17:08 AM
If she is that small, she probably doesn't need MATERNITY clothes per se.  I would try regular patterns in babydoll or empire styles.  Look for tops with a crossover bodice so she can wear them after delivery, while nursing.

I like the idea of a jacket, but matching plaids with that many seams can be a pain.  I usually use them in skirts -- not only the pleated kind, but long walking skirts or hobble or trumpet shapes all look good.  A vest would be a nice option too.  Plaid is very hot this fall.
