4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Curvy Girls Dress on: August 19, 2007 07:17:45 PM
Hi guys,
I need your help. I am seriously thinking of designing a fashionable line for curvy girls. I want to start with dresses so I would like your input. What do you like/not like about the choices you have now? What can I do to make your life more comfortable without sacrificing fashion? What preferences do you have in colors, solids, prints, length, straight or flared, etc. Let me have it! I plan to draft the pattern and make the dresses myself.
Thanks so much for your invaluable input.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / What do you do with your oops? on: October 31, 2006 11:21:29 AM
I was thinking today about my oops and I do have quite a few. An example of an "oops" is when you realize too late that the pockets are sewn upside down. Once I do something like that I put it away and go on to something else but I keep them all because I hate to throw them away. What do you guys do with your oops other than the obvious, taking it apart and starting over again? What do you think about an "oops" swap? One mans trash is another mans treasure......

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Necktie Dress HELP! on: October 10, 2006 04:48:45 AM
Sorry! I haven't checked this post in a long time. I really don't know why you put the neckties in the fridge but I read that you ahould. I think it's because you iron them wet and if you don't iron right away, they'll mold. You can see some of my necktie stuff on my etsy site misha.etsy.com

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Ethical Question on: October 07, 2006 07:19:07 AM
I don't know if this is a new subject or not but I have an ethical dilemma. A local lingerie store is interested in purchasing my skirts wholesale. They are sexy enough to qualify as lingerie but the problem I'm having is the target market for the skirts are "dancers". I am not being judgemental about how a person chooses to make a living and  I know I have no control over who wears my product. I just know that I lost my enthusiasm when she told me this. Am I being hypocritical in making sexy clothing but trying to control who it is sold to? I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue and how did you handle it?

8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / What to charge? on: September 01, 2006 07:19:15 AM
I have been asked to make an American Indian dress with removeable collar and about 10 yards of trim for a coworker. She has the patrtern and fabric but I don't know what to charge her for my labor. It's a simple long sleeve pullover dress, no zippers or buttons. Any suggestions?
thanks

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Iron on vinyl problems? on: March 05, 2005 07:00:20 AM
Has anyone had problems with the iron on vinyl? I have used it on several purses and am not totally satisfied with it. It wrinkles when you turn the bag and I am concerned about the looks of it after being used for a while. I read a post where someone warmed it before turning but I still don't like the results. I have also had problems with it not sticking in ceratin areas even after following the laminating instructions. I even emailed the manufacturer but no response yet.
I've tried regular vinyl but found out the hard way that you can't get heat anywhere near it!
I really like the look of the vinyl. Any suggestions?
