1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Two yellow purses I made. on: May 28, 2007 05:09:12 PM
So, I got this vintage mystery ball of yarn from my friend's mom, and I had no idea what to do with it.  What does one do with a single ball of impossibly fuzzly, variegated, synthetic, 70s, very yellow yarn, anyway?  Make adorable mini-purses of course!

So that's what I did.  They are very similar, being the same size and having the same i-cord handles, but they differ in how they close.  One is open on the top with a ruffle and the other has a ruffled flap that doesn't like to stay down.  I lined them with floral twill fabric.  They really are very little.  Only 3 1/2 inches tall.

Aaaand pictures:

Hey all!

This is only the second dress I've made, and the first halfway decent one.  I really like it.  Pictures!



And,



Do you like it?  'Cause I freakin' love it.  I'm gonna wear it all summer.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I have a ball to go to, and I need help. on: October 20, 2006 04:38:05 PM
I have a ball to go to, as stated, and I want Eliza Bennet's dress from Pride and Prejudice. Healthy Eliza, with pretty dresses. I can't believe how hard it is to find pictures of this one dress, but here are some:

Sorry it's so little.

Showing the neckline, very pretty.

Once again, not the best, but a bit more clear, showing part of the sleeves.

What I need help with is the neckline/bust bit. The rest is generic Regency, not hard, but I would really really appreciate any help with this.

Oh and, as a bit of happiness (?)

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I would dearly love to know how to make a middy collar. on: July 15, 2006 06:33:25 AM
Hello,
And thank you in advance for helping me. You see, I have a slight problem. I have this lovely little shift dress that just begs for a middy collar, but I don't have the slightest idea how to make one. Could anyone help me with this? I'd be embarrassingly grateful.
