22  Re: What type of hem/edge is this? in Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions by noelle on: September 05, 2009 09:12:09 AM
actually, it IS a flounce.

ruffles are gathered at the top, but flounces are not. the draping effect comes from the piece being curved, with the concave side being sewn to the dress and the convex side being the hem.

like this:

the more it curves, the more it "flounces", so if you don't want it to stick out very much, just make the piece shallowly curved.

and regular cottons flounce just fine.

The top looks like a modified caraco to me.. the way it tapers in the back, and the center box pleat makes me think of the precursor of tuxedo tails.

or it could just be long, but slightly pulled up in a semi-bustle or polonaise style.

here's a basic pattern

and this is what I think the back might look like:

24  Button-Down Blouse in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: May 11, 2008 09:23:44 AM
here's my final project for my apparel class. we each made our own patterns based on a very basic button-down shirt block.

the yoke actually closes at the top with a collar button, which makes a nice keyhole shape in the front. (for some reason this mannequin just has an extra thick neck.. haha)

yes! found the camera.
here is the beautiful phoenix pink hickey sent me! i'm afraid the pics don't quite do it justice..

closeup of the gold stitching on all the feathers. what a tremendous amount of work! plus the edge fraying really adds to the fiery look in person.

more details. how did you ever make a beak that tiny?!?

also, a phoenix tear necklace. just beautiful! thanks, pink hickey!!

26  phoenix the fire bird With link to pattern! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by noelle on: September 14, 2007 06:38:24 PM
made this for the harry potter "care of magical creatures" swap.
self-made pattern.  Smiley

his wings have wire along the top edge, and i used cable ties in the tail.

this is my favorite picture of 'im. pose of submission!
did a little quilting under the wings as feathers.

ooh. beady little nostrils.
i wanted teardrop shaped eyes, but settled for animal "noses" i found at the fabric store.

wire-bendy feet.

thanks for looking!

i can post the pattern now, and i will continue to work on the tutorial when i have some spare minutes.
(egad, after finals? ahhh!)

i uploaded the pics here to preserve original sizing:

let me know if you have any trouble accessing them.

28  taggie blanket & rattle block in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by noelle on: June 23, 2007 09:31:11 PM
super easy quick projects.. whipped these up tonight for a baby shower for a coworker.

the red ribbon is velvet, the green is grosgrain and the yellow is satin.

i used old mardi gras beads in a plastic easter egg for a rattle, then i glued it together, and sandwich-glued it between two 6 x 6 x 3 blocks of foam.

finished block:

and here's a tiny video with the rattly sound:

i hope she likes them!

ooh! found some caps here.

looks like they are all wearing the same dress when meg gets married, like bridesmaid dresses.

and both necklines are v-neck. here's the proposal dress, which is the one i tried to sketch.

it is gathered slightly at the shoulders (which come down lower than current shoulder lines, and down a little like cap sleeves). i believe the front is a v-neck with a lace underlay at the bust.

unfortunately i can't get a good picture from the movie for you, but let's see if i can sketch it:

i can't quite tell, but there may be some tucks at the bust/waist to keep the gathered look even. i hope that helps a little!
