1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Sew my own wedding dress? Am I crazy? Should I attempt? on: August 05, 2008 05:45:05 AM
As long as you give yourself plenty of time to work on it... no matter what happens it shouldn't be a problem.

I am currently working on my wedding dress (because I had a VERY specific idea of what I wanted and no one sells a dress like that)... only problem is the wedding is Friday (3 days) and it is no where near complete.

So, just give yourself plenty of time to toy with the fit and the pattern.  Having a dressmaker's dummy around should be beneficial.  And I say GO FOR IT!

Just try to at least start more than a week prior to the day... >.>

Sweetness!  Looks like you found a way to fix it.

I was showing this to my fiance, since he's helping me make my doll (well... not that's we're actually doing anything... >.> )  He wants to know if you've see the dollfie "excellent base model" its one of their 1/6 vinyl dolls.  It has a 3 part knee joint with the knee cap being a separate piece from either leg.  It allows for a prettier joint and the leg has more movement than the traditional joint.  If you like I can take pics of the doll I have.

You've made a lot of progress.  I don't have any recommendations for this specific problem.  I'm sure you'll figure it out through trial and error.  It does look really nice unbent. ^_^

No, I have not.  Its about half-way cut out... I think the battery just needed charging.  I haven't tried since I charged it.

Wow... the feet look awesome!  I think the joint tutorial will prove to be helpful to me once I get going again.  THANK YOU!!!

Oh, the wedding is 08-08-08.... b/c we like numbers.  A link to my not updated enough blog is in my signature. 

I actually was attempting to cut off the head cap of my doll.  Well, all she is is a head... the other day, but the dremel tried to die.  I was going to post pics.  I'm not sure I'll continue to do a whole doll from the head I have, I might turn it into some kinda artsy fartsy bust type thing.  Anyway... I don't really wanna ramble on and on about myself in your thread =^.^=

I'm really impressed with how she's coming along.  I'm going to try and check out that book, it seems like it would be really helpful.  Thanks again for the tutorial!

She is looking really nice!!!  So, you sculpted the legs in a single piece then cut it at the joints?  Are you putting a ball joint in for the ankle?

I wish I could work on mine, but silly wedding planning is in the way!

OOoooooOOO nice!  With all the hair the eyes look fine!  Have you tried playing with the position of the eyes?  Like making her look off to the side?  What don't you like about the eyes?

I realized yesterday... I don't have any pics of the head with actual features... LOL  I'll take some and post em for ya.  This might motivate me to going back to work on her.

It wasn't any problem.  Kept me occupied during class =^.^=

I didn't even think about the head cap... DUH! LOL

Definitely keep us updated.  If you're interested, I'll post pics of mine (she's only a head) and you can tell me what I'm doing wrong ^_^
