1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / difference between dressmaking quality and quilting quality fabric? on: May 26, 2008 03:09:04 PM
hey, just wondering if any wonderful knowledgeable creature would know the difference between quilt quality and dressmaking quality fabric and if indeed there is one. Just browsing ebay and they often say something is one or the other quality and wondering if it'd be okay to use quilt quality for a skirt or dress or something. Thanks in advance for any replies Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / replacing the bust on a dress? please help :) on: May 23, 2007 01:18:01 AM
Okay so I fell in love with this red polka dot dress on ebay. It fits beautifully everywhere but the boobage. I'm uploading a crappy doodle of the dress in case this helps anyone help me.



(my first time uploading a pic so if it doesn't come up. please let me know)

 as is hopefully apparent from my crappy doodle the bust is sewn into the dress as sort of a seperate part. the bust is gathered in the middle and has a strip of the fabric going over the gathered part. It's very beautiful and lovely but it's far too tiny and it's so frustrating because the rest of the dress is so parfectly beautiful. Well the bust is too but it's just the wrong size. I   adore the swishyness of the skirt and I do love the way it gathers. I want so much to be able to wear this dress. It just feels so me other than the whole not fitting thing. I found the EXACT fabric in the sewing shop yesterday and I was wondering if there was anyway I could make a new bust for this dress and reattatch it where the old one was? Is that possible at all? I've been trying to get my head around the full bust adjustment thing on the other thread and trying to apply that to this but not sure how... Any help would be really appreciated so much. Thanks guys
3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / carded wool? on: March 31, 2007 02:32:17 PM
Hello all. I've never done any felting in my life but it's utterly beautiful and I'm really intrigued so I'm trying to figure out what it is and what I'd need and that sort of stuff so I've been reading through all the tutorials and lots of the other questions and what not and I keep coming across the phrase "carded wool" and was just wondering what it meant. Thank you  Smiley
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / any way of printing on transparent paper? on: August 24, 2006 01:30:48 PM
I'm doing a collage as a sort of letter of application for a job at LUSH and I want to put text onto the collage without it overpowering or taking away from what's on it already. I was wondering if maybe there's a way of printing onto some sort of transparent paper or anyy other suggestions you have would be great Smiley Thanks Smiley
