11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to make this dress ? on: July 12, 2014 05:05:43 PM
How to explain this without pictures?
Ok, if you pattern draft (I am assuming you do) you would draft the pattern for this on tissue with the appropriate details for inserting the darts into the front fold portion and also the extra fabric needed for that twist. Cut the tissue down center front, invert one side (turn it upside down, both pieces with the right side facing up but one shoulder up, one down) and tape back together at centre seam. When cutting you will cut 2, sew neckline and arm holes, then you'll have to figure out how to sew the bottom part of the bodice to the front skirt and hide the bit where the twist is.
I really hope that made some sense to you. You'd sew side seams last and that would just go as any other dress once you'd gotten that twisted bit attached.

I want to try all of these but have a problem with 4-5 hr recipes. I work all day and use the crock pot for a hot meal that's ready for dinner time when I get in the door. That's over 8 hours most days. I can try these quick (relatively quick anyhow, lol) recipes on days that I'm hope I guess. I just with there were more all day recipes out there Tongue.

Lime, where do you find the juice to make such things at the end of the day? Your list sounds delicious and... exhausting to prepare!
I'm realizing that meal planning only works insofar as I've got the energy to actually make what I've planned. Sometimes I am So tired after my jobs that there is just no way. I have to stick with big-batch cooking so there's ready made stuff, that's about the only sort of planning that's going to be manageable for me.

If you are growing zucchini in your garden you're probably in for a glut as they just seem to keep coming and there's never enough to do with them all. I came across these 2 recipes today that look great, an entre and a dessert. I'm going to try them both out on the kids, wish me luck!

OH YUCK. You know when you get back from holiday and have nothing much to eat in the house? Frozen gluten-free gnocchi is undelicious no matter what you prepare it with. Ugh.
I'd like something like this portable fold up grill, I don't have space for a char-b-q le sigh http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/napoleon-travel-q-scissor-cart-grill-0852201p.html#.U7sukukU-9A

I know just what you mean!! What part of the country are you in, CLM? I'm in the PNW where a 90 degree day KILLS us (or me, at least!). 73 degrees is about my max Smiley.

We r in southern Ontario, Canada. It's parallel with northern Cali/southern Oregon so wine region, our fruit belt, lots of farms outside of the cities. Frikken hot the last week, my goodness. Then we left for camping (in southern Michigan) and the weather broke so I had way underpacked, lol. At least the cooking part was bearable without running the AC in the RV the entire time, ha. We roasted weenies and marshmallows last night, it was SO fun! Back home tomorrow and will have to work really hard to figure out meals now with my work schedule and the kids being off school. I don't know how other parents do this :/.

Perhaps if you share that recipe for mint julep iced tea AIMR, that might help me get through this summer Wink.
It does have liquor in it, right? Say yes...

OMG it's been SO hot I just have no appetite. We've existed on cheese and crackers and pepperettes and fruit and chocolate and light beer (for me anyhow). La, the humidity just sucks all the juice outta ya, doesn't it? We're going camping at the lake for a bit, at least we can grill outside. Goodness, this summer is a beast already. I will have to figure something out. What are you doing when it's super hot out? I am afraid to even turn on the stove, never mind how sluggish the weather makes me feel, lol.

Oh, I just threw out a lot of food. It's my own fault for bringing home so much stuff that's just at it's best before date, I could not possibly use it all up in time without a marathon kitchen session and more room in my freezer. I just do not like to see it go to waste at work. Oh well, I'll get this process more organized in time. I hope.
