so, i searched and there actually was a topic on this, but nobody replied! so i decided to try again on my own. this is what happened: i found a fantastic pair of pants, except they're total granny pants. so i need to resize the crotch so it's higher up. does that make sense? there's about an inch and a half between the zipper and the actual crotch so i figured there's room to work with, but i don't know what to do exactly. please help!! thanks!!
SO, after reading through all the posts here on bbw 4111, i still can't figure out what on earth i did wrong. my collar/neckband thing is all... well, wonky, i guess, and i can't figure out why. also, after steps 9 & 10, my shirt looked nothing like anyone else's, mostly due to the collar that wouldn't lay down flat like it was supposed to. please help!!
i just got the simplicity bbw 4111 pattern, and, after coming back from the store, i realized that the pattern wanted interfacing. would it be okay if i just didn't buy/use interfacing at all? because from what i understand (and that's not very much :] ) interfacing makes fabrics stiff, so would i want my shirt stiff? thanks!
sorry about the fact that its a link. i'm just lazy, is all. anyhow, the problem is that i can't figure out how i would cut out the fabric so the collar would look like this folded over. does this make sense? i'm assuming the collar and body is one piece, but maybe i'm wrong and that's the problem. please help! thanks!!
i just got the free burda pattern, the one with the empire waist, and i'm super excited. however, i do not get their sizing at all. i'm 5'2" and pretty much really tiny, i guess. their chart says i'm a size 16 in euro sizes, i think. but there are no instructions for that size. can someone help me?
sorry if there's already a topic on this; i didn't find it. i have recently picked up knitting, and all i've done so far are some ribbed scarves and cabled scarves. so, lately i've been wanting to knit something, you know, more advanced. i was wondering if any of you guys have any suggestions for a beginner, preferably a vest or sweater with a deep v. thanks!
i LOVE making bags, but i can't cut any of my lines straight. somehow, all my rectangles end up being tapered or funky looking (not in a good way.) i don't have one of those cutter mats (or whatever they're called) so i was wondering if anyone knew any tips about cutting straight. help!!
so you see, there is a story behind all this. i had an adorable shirt, but then i somehow got nail polish remover all over it (i really don't know how! i wasn't even painting my nails!) and then it had weird splotches all over it. i've been searching for a replacement, but have yet to find one. so then, one day when i was browsing online, i saw this shirt at forever 21: http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=Casual+Tops&product%5Fid=2032750917&Page=7. does anyone know how to make this? i mean, besides the obvious rouching and whatnot? i should rephrase my question: does anyone know what the shape of the fabric would be before i rouche it? please note: there are no separate sleeves. i'd really appreciate your help, if anyone has made something like this before. and thanks for reading all the crap i wrote. i tend to ramble. THANKS!
does anyone know a good zip-up hoodie tute? i just got the most adorable sweatshirt fabric, and i want to make a zip-up hoodie. all the zip ups i've seen on here are bought then reconned. so if anyone can help, please step up!!!
