Wow, big props on all of those - love the use of the star punch as an alternative to boring round holes.

The girl in the boat is Grace Darling (for those who didn't know) - famous for being involved in a daring sea rescue in 1838 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Darling

Where do you get all your images from?

Agree about the ties at the back, just below bust level to pull it in a little - but I think the main problem is the big expanse at top. Would a collar make it look less plain/smock-y

Took the liberty of photoshopping some terrible pix for you  Tongue (I should dig out my tablet and pen, drawing with a laptop touchpad is impossible) Standard, cowel and peter pan.

For a much nicer looking peter pan collar see the tute here: http://wiksten-made.typepad.com/photos/peter_pan_collar_tutorial/jennygordy_2.html (not mine and I've not used it, just fyi) On the peter pan one I have also taken the bottom of the sleeves (gather at the bottom and sew a strip of fabric to give a bottom puff sleeve) in to give a prettier look.

Personally I think it could look quite mod-ish with the sleeves and peter pan collar.

Woah - I have to say when I saw the first pic I also thought "oh, so she's glued some stuff to a waste basket, big deal!" How could I underestimate your crafty godliness... I am so sorry.

Completely bow to your patience, as someone who sucks at finishing anything that takes longer than an hour I salute you!!

Wow, that's incredbly neat (in both senses). I had not heard about this until your post but a little reseach found that it is also called 'fingerlooping' and brought me to this site: http://fingerloop.org/

I had a read through and I have to say I have a slight headache now! but hopefully you'll find it of some use.

::edit:: ooh, found this page too http://www.stringpage.com/braid/fl/fingerloop.html - site also includes lots of other types of braiding, v cool.
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Iron-on Oopsie....help??? on: March 18, 2008 04:33:51 PM
My only thought would be to attach the iron on to a separate piece of cloth (something more suitable, smaller weave) and applique it to the crochet piece?

I may be wrong but I can't imagine that an iron on is gonna work directly on the crochet... too much stretch/movement... just my 2 bits.

Wowzer Carrie Me! I squee'd when I saw your basket pincushion (have seen before but that looks so well constructed and fab fabric!)

But then when I saw that it opened  Shocked

Freakin awesome - I bow to your crafty goddessness  Tongue

ooh pretty - would look great with some victorian/mary poppins boots (but then I am biased - I have 3 pairs of them!) - or actually Doc Martins would look cool too.

I like the idea of a contrasting over skirt - how you're wearing it here works but have you thought about making another layer for it? kinda like this (but obviously contrasting colours):


You could either attach it or make it separate so you have the choice of how to wear it.
28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: so i needed clothes for work and play on: March 15, 2008 11:58:57 AM
Oh my - I love the funky tailoring on your work clothes - it all looks really well thought out and constructed.

Just one comment - I would love to have seen these modelled on you! I know it's not always possible to get action shots but I for one find modelled clothes way more inspiring - especially if you have some curves to show off!
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Pop art inspired high waisted skirt on: March 05, 2008 01:14:30 PM
yup yup, all of the above and more.

Couple of questions - could you tell us which fabric paints you used, if the black outline was a fabric pen and finally, have you had the nerve to wash it yet!!

Oh and I hit 'this rocks'  Grin

in our Geology dept,  all the chicks wear girly flannels in pink purple and blue with jeans, usually unbuttoned with camisoles peaking out or v-neck t's.

Ooh I like the camisole idea. My immediate thought was not very crafty but how about trying a belt over the shirt to give you more shape?
