21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: befuddled on which is what with which! on: May 02, 2008 06:35:58 PM
"Lawn cloth or lawn is a plain weave textile, originally linen but now chiefly cotton. Lawn is designed using fine, high count yarns, which results in a silky feel. The fabric is made using either combed or carded yarns. When lawn is made using combed yarns, with a soft feel and slight luster, it is known as "nainsook". The term lawn is also used in the textile industry to refer to a type of starched crisp-finish given to a cloth product. The finish can be applied to a variety of fabrics, from print cloth to fine plain cloth."

Really nice job. I think being in tee shirt material you can dress it up or down. Good layering piece.

Ooh nice. I love the wide waistband, I think it's really modern and flattering. I have a basic pants pattern I have drafted per my measurements but I need to try and modify it to be something a little more hip.

I love them. I would call them long shorts. They are the only kind of 'shorts' you will ever catch me in outside of the house. And that's rare. Very cute thou. I love the fabric.

Nice job. I love the sleeves. Your title made me think of the song on the Grease soundtrack.

Great job. I think my hubby would be jealous. I think I should make us all one and then we can wear it while we play Lord of the Rings Risk! (you think I kid?). Smiley

Oooh nice thanks. Love the link in the original post too.. Another to add to my collection of fashion plate links.. /drools

I am obsessed with historical clothing myself particularly Victorian era (1860s - 1870s my fave).
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: to line or not to line???? on: May 02, 2008 05:45:08 AM
I agree with the others. Lining is not just for modesty.. Smiley It's for comfort of the wearer of the garment.. For example.. If you wore a wool skirt, you probably wouldn't want that baby rubbing right against your skin. Yuck. Plus other examples that were given..
29  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with Reading a Pattern! on: May 02, 2008 05:42:51 AM
Just break it down. I would make a list of what you don't understand, and let us help you little by little. Once you do one, trust me, the others get easy, and then after a couple, you'll be flying.. Smiley Don't give up.. It's not hard.. I promise! It can just be overwhelming at first.
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dress form tips? on: May 02, 2008 05:40:23 AM
Just remember, even if you make it your size, don't fit garments EXACTLY to the form, as the form does not move, and doesn't require the ease a human being does. Don't forget to try it on yourself before everything is done.. Smiley
