That dress is very pretty! Thanks for the tute! If I ever look good in a dress again, I may try it out  Cheesy

I've planned on making a corset, but and just too scared to even start lol
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Being Cheeky @ the WalMart Fabric Counter on: June 27, 2005 06:33:22 PM
CERULEAN do you live in tennessee? 

I swear.  I was in wal-mart on saturday night.  This lady was buying alot of fabric for a church program.  Honest to god.

Weird.

Actually, I'm from Ohio (near Cleveland).

Something funny is that I saw a post on craftster from someone looking for papier mache tips so she could make safari-type animals (giraffes, elephants, etc) and I was fairly sure that the poster was a girl from my church who intended to do that for our "Serengheti Trek" kids' program . And then I clicked on the poster's profile and found out she was ~30 years old or so. A case of mistaken craftster identity? Hah.

I guess now is just a popular time for churches to hold kid's programs.
Now, what's weird here, is that my mom lives in Ohio, also near Cleveland, and that's the theme for her church's VBS (I think she said for VBS)... but like someone said, it must be this year's theme.

Since moving, I haven't had any bad experiences at the WalMart fabric counter. In fact, there are actually 2 really nice older ladies that are extremely helpful and just plain nice. Maybe I just picked better times to go, but I hope they're there the next time I'm there (haven't been in a few months) ! Smiley
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: If you live with a Significant Other.... on: April 30, 2005 08:14:16 AM
Well my situation may be a little different... my husband has no sense of style or design. He grew up in a house where no one really did anything other than throw things around. And my mom was obsessed with the home interiors/very flowery stuff which was totally not my dad's taste, so I'm trying to work out things that aren't only 'me' but just plain comfy and easy on the eyes. So, I'm kinda lucky. If I want to do something he says "whatever" and I do it.

I just finished recovering a couch my dad gave us. It was upholstered in a southwest fabric and was UGLY (which, I think, is why my dad wanted it gone), so I did it in purple. My husband thought it would look too girly, but it looks really nice (a biased opinion, but it really does, and he agrees). Our bedroom is going to have dark purple everywhere with a bit of lighter shades and some other colors and the master bathroom is going to be a deep red. He thinks it will look bad, but he doesn't really have a choice because he was wrong about all my other ideas  Grin Plus, he's happy with flourescent lighting and plain, undecorated or sporatic, postered walls, so he loses out by default  Wink
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: What do all your dress forms look like when there not in use? on: April 13, 2005 07:23:14 PM
I used to just keep a wool coat on it. Now, though, it sits between a few boxes in a corner (we moved a few months ago and my office/sewing/craft room is stuffed with boxes and it's stopped me from being crafty lately).

Your daughter is a doll! and that whole outfit is screaming "cute"  Smiley
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: 3 inch wide elastic? on: December 06, 2004 05:33:03 PM
I have no idea, but I've been searching for 3"+ elastic, too.

I'm just gonna watch your post to see if someone else knows  Grin
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: My kid made other kids cry with this Halloween getup... on: November 09, 2004 03:00:26 PM
Ah, that looks great!

My 10 yo son was a dead football player. Grin I got a few odd looks from some other parents, but a father and his son (that couldn't have been older than 2) thought he looked pretty cool (along with all the other dads lol).

I, too, miss the day of scary costumes instead of only the cutesy things. (My other kids dressed up pretty tame and cutesy, though - but eh, they got to choose their own costumes. Maybe it'll change when they get older? )
9  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: New Look 6377- The SewAlong! on: September 28, 2004 09:39:04 PM
Oh, wow. I can't believe I forgot about this. I have the pattern all cut out, but haven't found the materials I want for the dress.. and haven't thought about looking, lately. Hopefully, I'll show some progress soon, as we shouldn't be renovating for that much longer (I hope  Undecided. Tearing out walls, and rebuilding them is really frustrating).
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: tu-tu on: September 04, 2004 12:16:41 PM
Here's the one I made. Like I said, nowhere near perfect, but it gets the job of dressing up done.


But with an elastic waist instead of ribbon (the ribbon might've been easier... I think I'll have to try it when I make another one lol) . I don't remember how many yards I used. I just kinda guessed (I'm not much help at all, I know  Cheesy)
