Quick Google search gave me this: http://www.wowinc.biz/

This is definitely something left to the professionals. Keep us updated on how it goes if you do it!! This is an awesome idea!

Oooo I love it!!! Makes me want to go on a rampage to find similar "Caution" fabric for a Gogo outfit!! Great job!!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with altering on: January 21, 2008 07:49:08 AM
I have nothing productive to add other than saying good luck!

I have a huge bag full of pants that need to be altered (waistbands, some hems with fake cuffs). It is more worth it for ME to take them to an alteration place and pay $8-$10 per pair (mind you, I got all of the pants on sale, so if I pay $12 at the store, and $10 to get them altered, I have a pair of perfectly fitting pants for $22). Of course suits/blazers would be more expensive, but might be something to check into?

Anyway, good luck!!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: backless bra with straps? Anyone tried to recon a bra like this? (Picture Added) on: January 21, 2008 07:35:39 AM
I believe something like this was featured on that one invention-competition show on TV...

AND I saw a girl when I was in Vegas that had one of these and I ALWAYS kick myself for not asking her where she got it or how she made it or w/e.

Anyway...when I do anything backless I do one of two things ---

Walmart has these stick on bras, where it looks like a regular strapless bra in the front, and on the sides it has stickers -- and then I also pin a clear halter strap into the cups for extra support.

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4196156

OR, they make the bras with the clear strap that goes around the back...I know, it's not totally strapless and you can see it, but on first glance it does look like your back is bare, and beggars can't be choosers Sad  H&M sells them for $14 or something cheap like that. (Rainbow also sells them for 2 for $10, but I imagine the quality will be MUCH less...if you want to go higher up in quality, Victoria's Secret sells them for something crazy like $50).

Another idea I've been toying around with is replacing the back of a front-clasp bra with a clear shoulder strap, so it's the same idea of the "clear strap around the back" bra but the strap is much thinner...

Thanks! It was my first time working with fishnet, and I didn't use a pattern at all. It took a few tries to figure out but I'm very happy with it Smiley

For the seams I just took a strip of black spandex and serged it in, placing it behind the two layers of fishnet as I sewed, then trimmed off anything that wasn't encased in the thread. For the edges I used fold over elastic.

Ooo How about "Scandalize Designs" ??

A little assonance never hurt anyone LOL
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How To: Binding on Spandex??!??! on: December 12, 2007 12:51:17 PM
Thanks for the reply! I actually sat down the other night and tried this with some scraps, it came out kind of decent.

I definitely need to get one of those "fringe maker" rotary cutting rulers (with the measured slits) to get my binding a perfect inch for the foot. I think with some practice I could definitely perfect it to use on my clothes.

I used my bf's mother's machine that has a REALLY nice stretch stitch (compared to MY machine, anyway lol) and it worked great. I've never tried the wooly nylon thread, maybe I'll give it a try. What would be REALLY nice is if Singer came out with a foot for my coverstitch machine that did this! lol
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Help with name for Clubwear clothing brand on: December 12, 2007 12:06:50 PM
OK I give in!  Huh I need help thinking of a name for my clothing line/brand. I had always thought I would just go with AndreaLynn Designs, but it's boring and doesn't at all give the impression of what kind of items I have.

I make Gogo/Stripper/Exotic dancewear and other kinds of "sexy" costumes.

Obviously the name has to be available/unused (or have available website variations of ___dancewear.com or ____designs.com), be (relatively) easy to spell, it can be risque, but not too racy. I like the words scandal/scandalous, fierce, vamp, etc.

Maybe something like "Looks to Kill" or "ScandalWear" Huh?

Any help is always appreciated! Thanks! -A

Oh my gosh I wouldn't have known where to begin without the workbook! ---

http://www.singerco.com/resources/serger_stitch_wkbk.html

It explains EVERYTHING for EVERY STITCH step by step.

This is making me want to ditch work and go sew  Cheesy

Good luck!!
