I guess what I don't understand is, by the pattern, I will end up with 2 seperate ties, but do I sew the ends of BOTH ties to the same spot? If so, how do they wrap around me to meet in the front? And how does the hole work?
I know i sound retarded, but when I think about it, I've never owned anything that wrapped and tied like that before.
So, I just recently bought this pattern and I'm planning on starting it soon, and maybe I'm just special, but I just can't figure out how the ties are suppose to work. I'm planning on first making the option B.
Has anyone here made this or do maybe just have some insight on how it's suppose to work? Cause I can't figure it out for the life of me!
i love this dress so much! like so so much! i would kill for one like it!
i can see, generally, how it's set up. A-line skirt attached to a button up shirt top. puffy sleeves...but the thing that makes the dress over the top for me is the neckline but i cant see it well enough to copy it. *sigh* hehe
Ok, love the wallet! Am in the process of making one for maself, and i have one potentially stupid question, if you would be so kind.
On the tute you linked to, it says you sew around the little window for the zipper and THEN turn the fabric right side...i don't really understand that. how do you sew a square and then turn it right side?
i TOTALLY thot the Virgin of Guadalupe also, which when you think of it in terms of the Virgin being the goddess symbol in the modern paganism of Christianity, then i think it's absolutely beautiful! (well, not to say vagina isn't beautiful without that comparison) but now i want to see one stitched up in the bright colors of the virgin, with roses around the bottom of it.
So my favorite gay doctor who's granny used to sew just gave (GAVE!!) me his granny's old serger!
It's a Singer Professional 14U 3 thread. Nice and heavy. Not a spot of rust or any real dirt. Tho I'm definately going to take it to a sewing machine doctor and have it's vitals taken, a good thurough cleaning and oiling and all that.
The booklet that came with it says "Copyright 1987" and is in fairly good condition, considering some manuals i've seen. But somewhere in it's past the manual got wet and some of the pages are stuck together.
ANYwho, i'll stop bragging and get to the question...
I'm so super intimidated by the idea of threading this thing. I'm a bright girl and will probably be able to figure it out...but i thought i heard somewhere that some ppl, when one spool (cone?) of thread is about to run out, they'll just tie the new spool on the end, and in that manner, they never have to really thread their machine again. is this true? is this possible?
