1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Travel Journal on: June 18, 2010 12:00:46 PM
This is for my friend's birthday because she's gotten to be somewhat of an international traveler.  I didn't make this book by hand- it was an old notebook.  But I did the cover, trying to find things that reminded me of travel and other countries, and I think it turned out pretty cool!

Thanks for looking!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / off-the-shoulder style on: March 21, 2010 09:58:17 AM
Hey everybody,

I really like the top of this dress from urban outfitters:

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?itemdescription=true&itemCount=10&startValue=121&selectedProductColor=&sortby=&id=17694415&parentid=W_APP_DRESSES&sortProperties=+subCategoryPosition,+product.marketingPriority,-product.startDate&navCount=0&navAction=jump&color=&pushId=W_APP_DRESSES&popId=WOMENS&prepushId=&selectedProductSize=

It looks easy enough to make, but I am a little confused about how the sleeves are attached.  Has anyone made a top like this?  Are the sleeves a continuation of the top or separate--and if they are separate, where do they connect?
I don't know if I'm being clear or not, so I'll clarify if you need.  Thanks!

Lately all I've been making is summer dresses, but my favorite thing to do is patchwork.  I've made these pirate-y pants and another pair in a different style.  Lots of fun to have, but more work than I'm willing to do some days!  It's not too bad, though, I would still recommend you go for it if you've had this idea.
So what do you think?

   
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Backless dresses and support on: April 14, 2008 03:32:32 PM
Hi, I'm not really that busty, just barely a D, but my question is about backless formal dresses.  Since you can't wear a bra with them, what is the best way to support?  Do you have to have a halter or is there enough support if the dress is fitted nicely to wear one with only shoulder straps?  such as the post from calmwind

What is your experience with backless dresses?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / altering a strapless dress with boning on: April 06, 2008 08:24:49 AM
Hi.  This seems like the right board to ask this on--

I am altering a dress for a friend but have discovered that it has boning in it.  It's a david's bridal dress, strapless, and there is some kind of boning in the seams.  I haven't ripped any seams yet so I can't tell exactly how the boning is attached, but it doesn't seem to be attached at the bottom of the bodice, only the top.  I need to make the top smaller for her bust so I guess the real question is, has anyone seen a dress like this or altered one?  Any advice?  If not, I can probably figure it out, but this expensive dress intimidates me  Cheesy

Here are 2 dresses I made.  The blue one I'm wearing is altered but I don't have a before picture.  I just added the gathers all over it.  The yellow one is made from scratch for my friend, without a pattern.  I was rather proud Wink




full shot, ignore my stoner face please

I can only post links yet, sorry.  So, whatcha think?
