Zero Cool, your stuff looks...well, cool! I love the corset belt.
I have a cupcake-update from down under...I finished the front last night, pinned it to the back (which was in a different size), it seemed to work, so I sewed them together and they look okay! I'm astounded. And it seems I probably didn't need the extra ease of the next size up.
So I am working on the sleeves today and tomorrow and will hopefully have a finished garment next week. I've come up with a plan...mark a paper, do a row, mark a paper, do a row, mark a paper...
I read through the pattern for Frou Frou last night, and the instructions for the cuffs on p.215 stumped me. How do you draw up a loop? Definitely not using Rowan for it, either. It's about 30 bucks a ball down here!
Update - I finished my Cupcake!
(That link is to the flickr photopage, but you can see the photo below!) I'm horrified at how badly it photographs, because it looks great in the mirror
