1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Sleeve ideas for Batwings... on: June 18, 2006 01:53:55 PM
Hi Ladies,

I've lurked for a few months and posted a few times, and now I have a question for the curvier girls ...

So I've made a cute little dress that is essentially a tube cut to fit my extra wide hips, and so far I like it....

One problem - I'm making this to wear to a party where I know it's going to be melt in your shoes hot, and I need a way to cover my upper arms.... add to that I want the top of my back to be exposed to showcase a lovely tat....

Any ideas? I'm using a pseudo-silk sari as fabric... the best thing I've come up with is to get/make some kind of wrap or shawl in a more sheer fabric....

Thanks for reading! Smiley

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Organzamana! Finishing question on: June 10, 2006 07:54:23 PM
Hello there! I have a question about finishing organza...

Has anyone tried burning the edges of organza to give it that neat ruffly effect? Did you baste or hem it first or just light the candle and let 'er rip?

Thanks for any advice you might have.  Cheesy
