Ehh, I guess I just have this weird thing where I associate elastic waist bands with my Grandmother's jeans... And I know it's weird, because most of my shorts have elastic waist bands. It's just me being a brat and saying "I don't wanna!" Oh well.
I like the idea of the snaps, I may do that! And I'm not worried about it slipping down, I would just rather have it in one piece because, as I said, I'm a brat. And a little particular/obnoxious about this.
I'm not sure if I have time for a zipper is the thing, but I may end up going out really quickly the day of or something to get one.
Hey people! My homecoming is in a week, and I started my dress yesterday. Ha. Procrastinator. Anyways, I am making it pretty simple, but I'm having a bit of trouble. The top will be like a corset but with no boning, and it will lace up the back. That part I'm fine with. The only place I'm having trouble is the skirt. I don't want to have a zipper, so my question is this:
How can I make the skirt attach to the corset so that I can get in and out of it easily?
I mean, I'm really thin, but I want the skirt to sort of poof out from where it's attached to the corset. So I know I'm going to gather the skirt at the top. But if it's a dress, I'm just worried about being able to get in the corset and skirt... If I'm unclear please let me know!
Well, I have been in love with the original "Big Girl Cheytown Dress" for a while, and I have been wanting to make my own version since I saw that topic posted. Unfortunately, my sewing machine is broken. So when I got to take home my friends sewing machine for a school project (we're making a quilt for our "Final Conference"... it's really neat! I'll post pictures when it' finished), I knew I wanted to make it. So I went in my Dad's closet, found a shirt I really liked, and cut it up without his knowing. I really liked the dress that gatling gun had made, but I wanted a strapless beachy dress, more of a cover-up. And now for my almost final product!
And Wha-BAM! The back.
As you can see, I opted for strapless, and I made it sort of an empire mini dress. I love it! Now I just have to sew up the last side. Tell me what you think!
Ok, so I have been admiring Suzi Blu for months and months, watching her videos on youtube and trying several "playshop" ideas on my sketch paper, but I always wanted a journal to try them in. I finally got a pretty good one at Borders, even if it's more landscape-y than I would have liked. It's very... rectangular. Anyways, that's not the point. The point is, I finally started it, and I have the first two pages done. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for me. I showed my Mother, and she got excited, but I don't really trust her opinion, because she HAS to like it. Anyways, here are the sub-par pictures:
It's really cool, I've always wanted to make an altered book. I've been "studying" (which consists of stalking crafters on craftster whose books I really admire and googling pictures and techniques constantly) for weeks, and I plan to make my very best friend one for Christmas.
