Thanks all! I hope I have saved someone some sandal buying frustration at least Smiley

I don't know if anyone else has this trouble, but every year when its time to buy sandals I can never find any I can actually walk in the women's section of the store is always filled with flip flops that are much better suited to beach wear than going a few miles with your dog.Wink Seriously I almost dropped about 100$ because women's walking sandals seemed to be such a rarity. For some reason cheap walking sandals only exist in the men's section, so I decided to turn men's sandals into women's sandals with some purple tulip fabric paint.

Here is what they looked like pre-paint

I have not done a swag in a long while but this would definitely be very tempting! I agree there definitely is a need for more Trek crafting out there...Smiley

It doesn't seem like it should be too hard (though everything for a wedding has a degree of added difficulty!) If it were me I would start with a muslin-mockup of a pattern like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/108301064/pattern-style-1187-strapless-dress-with then cut off the bottom and measure the circumference in order to make a circle skirt at the hem.

Then for the gown itself I would simply flat-line the lace. Hope that helps - and makes sense! SmileyWink

That sounds like an interesting idea -- do you have any pictures?

Thanks for all the ideas! I just assumed it was a metal because of the stiffness/shininess of it, and this show (Game of Thrones) seams to have alot of metal things included in the costumes.....Smiley

I had considered starched lace but as has been pointed out the...trim? in question is also on the shoulders and the lace would fall flat if the dress was ever washed.

I like the leather idea, but wonder - would it stand up at all after I had cut so many holes in it?

Does anyone have any ideas how I might go about making this belt?



I hope this is the correct place to put my question, it seemed to me to be more of a piece of jewelry rather than a functioning belt.  Wink

Sounds like fun - I was disappointed to be so busy at the time of the last Zelda swap.

I loved reading your post, congrats on getting married and completing beautiful dress!
I have also emailed Joanns with complaints and have gotten no response (they sent me the wrong color fabric which cost me both a customers time and the money to ship the darn stuff back to them) :/

The fabric looks like a stretch woven rather than a knit to me - as it is keeping alot of its shape. Its hard to tell without actually feeling it though. Wink
