just wondering what you were making - here's a great purse tutorial - http://www.twofoos.com/crafts/sp.html

Yeah I saw this tutorial the other day and I was considering making one similar to that.

What is considered a decent industrial sewing machine?

I was just wondering, what type of machine would be good for sewing material like seat belt webbing? I have just a regular sewing machine and I read that a commercial grade sewing machine would be better suited for that type of material. Can anyone offer a more clear suggestion? Thanks in advance.

O....M....G....

I absolutely love your version!!! Did you sew this on a regular sewing machine? Just asking because I was wondering how the needle handled the seatbelt material. Once again you did an amazing job!!!

Thanks for the responses. That's what I figured but I was having trouble visualizing it.

... about what this means. I am stuck on step one of this pattern.

http://www.hobbylobby.com/site3/pdfprojects/HL-138.pdf



I have done my 18 rows but then it says

"Continue row 18 across side of work, evenly spacing 15 hdc across the end of the 18 rows; there are 3 hdc in each corner. Continue around with hdc across the bottom of the work, working the same 15 hdc as for the first side. Join with a slip stitch in the first hdc of the 18 round.

I am not sure how to evenly space out 15 hdc first of all, and then I still need clarification on what it would look like once I joined the round.

In response will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I was just wondering, do you cut out your straps first or do you cut out the skirt part?

I actually had them cut two pieces of fabric for me when I made/make  mine. One to use for the skirt, and one that's the length I need for my straps. That way, I don't have to make  ten milion extra cuts and ruin pieces of fabric. Only 2 cuts for the length of the straps (one if I use the clean edgesof the fabric instead of the middle) and of course I have a piece that's just right to cut my skirt.

Sorry I am so late with this but thank you for your reply. That made alot of sense, don't know why I didn't think of that earlier before I ruined some fabric.

I wanted to thank everyone for such an informative thread! I started reading it in September, used a modified version of the pattern to make four bridesmaids' dresses for my wedding in March (one with a boob tube), and you can see the results here: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3148/2382082924_1ae2165edb.jpg. I guess I'm not allowed to post photos in my first ten posts.

I think they look pretty good!





OMG! First of all everyone looks gorgeous!! I am freaking out because you're gown is similar to one that I want and I had the idea to have my bridesmaids wear the convertible dresses too. Anyways, just wanted to say you looked beautiful!

Ok, after months of admiring everyone's dresses I am going to attempt this. However, on pg 38 of this thread Rostitchery said that she was going to make a video tutorial. Does anyone know if she did? I know that this dress is way simple but I don't want to waste my nice fabric.

I'll let you guys know how it turns out.
