11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: My baby blankie for my bestie from childhood! on: October 20, 2012 10:39:15 AM
That's a funny story! Cheesy And a really cute blanket.
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 1950s-inspired Little Black Dress of Win on: October 20, 2012 10:17:58 AM
Sorry I forgot to write anything at first! Cheesy

A LBD made of my own pattern (though based on a free Lekala pattern, the modifications were so extensive it's really my own now). The fabric, ribbed, is mostly rayon, with some stretch but also enough body for the skirt to hold the shape nicely.

My favourite feature, though, is the V-neckline in the back and the shaped sleeve hems. And topstitched facings.





The jacket I'm wearing it with is a 70s thing I got from my friend's mother, with buttons that my grandfather made.



And the sleeve!

They're beautiful!
May I ask what a Pongal dress is?

There actually are handsewing stitches with some stretch in them. I just don't know the names in English---with most of them not even in Czech. I just experiment with it.

Sew by hand? Roll Eyes
That's my solution when my machine drives me crazy, but I don't know whether it would work for you.

I'm glad it's still helpful... even though I shudder at some of my old English now. Cheesy

I've just realised that a narwhal is exactly what I want to sew my friend as a gift for her birthday... which was yesterday. I wanted to sew her a cat, but that would be too complicated and would take too long. This is quite simple and yet adorable and unpredictable, perfect combination!

too bad it is sold out

Yeah, I love it, too. Also, it was exactly my size. Wink
