131  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / please help.. I need FUR!!!! on: November 06, 2006 07:52:27 AM
Hey, I could really do with your help..

This is my final design: for my college second year project on 1920s clothing.

Now - - this is going to be showcased on a catwalk in june next year and I do NOT want it looking cheap or tacky, so for the fur, I don't want to spend 1.99 on that horrible fraying cheap rubbish that seems to be the only thing you can actually buy in the 'fur' department...!

As you can see in the picture I want it quite long fur, and I don't think short fur will look so nice, but the only nice long fur I can find is bright orange and pink..!

I was wondering if anybody was aware of a shop (UK), online (that posts to the UK) or not, that sells good quality faux fur that's not too expensive (as I'm a student!).

If not, is there such thing as brown marabout feathers?

I have come across a few websites but no luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated..!

133  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / London college of fashion.. anybody been or going? on: September 27, 2006 09:43:46 AM
I'll be off to uni next year and It's not likely, but I'd LOVE to go here.. only the prospectus doesn't state how many ucas points you need.. so i'm guessing you just need a good entry profile and portfolio.. but I just wanted to know, if anybody else had been or is there, how did you get in?? thanx  Grin Lou xx
134  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / cute printed tablecloth thingy... what the heck.. impulse buying.. now what?!! on: September 25, 2006 10:35:46 AM
okay, so I took a trip into town today for some retail therapy, (much needed as had been doing college work since 9AM til 3PM then carried on when I got home!  Sad ) so anyway.. I went into the local cheap crud shop, only to find this kind of.. thin plastic table cloth with a gorgeous print on it:

it was only 99p and it's HUGE! but now I don't know what to do with it... I'm going to cut some of it up to stick in one of my sketchbooks for college, but there'll be a whole load left and I just don't know what to do with it.. it'd make an awesome top or some kind of clothing thing, but it's too thin and only cheap so can't imagine it lasting or being particularly waterproof etc!

Any idea = much appreciated  Grin

135  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / UK swaps?? on: September 05, 2006 05:04:08 AM

136  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / transferring lace pattern onto fabric.. possible???! on: September 03, 2006 01:41:57 PM
HI! I had this brainwave a few weeks ago, which was to use the legs I cut off some camo trousers (made the rest into a skirt!), and make a tote bag. My idea was to lay lace over the fabric, and sponge florescent fabric paint over it to get the lace effect onto the fabric. However.. the paint was tooooooo thin.. WAY too thin! lol, and the lace wasn't thick enough.. hence I ended up with a trouser leg with a splodge of yellow paint that looked like erm... vom!

Basically my question is.. would this be possible? the fabric is dark and I thought the colours would work well with the florescent so I'd effectively like to use this, but perhaps lighter fabric and thicker paint.. plus thicker lace would work better..??

OR - is there such thing as "SPRAY ON FABRIC PAINT"..?!

Or is there a way I can coat the lace so it's kinda waterproof..? hmm would that even work.. my guess is... no!

Any help would be much appreciated!  Grin

137  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 1920s daywear.. any help!? on: September 02, 2006 01:37:31 PM
Hi  Grin I've been given a project at college to design and make a 3 piece outfit inspired by 1920's day or sports wear but NOT evening wear...! I'm finding it really hard finding inspiration, so I was just wondering if anybody had any ideas of what I could do?? I thought about a coat but everybody seemed to do that who had this project last year... any help would be GREATLY appreciated! lol Lou xxx  Grin
