1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: monster hat and scarf on: September 23, 2007 04:00:26 PM
brilliant all around. the design, the use of color, the way the hat and scarf work together. I love that the eyeballs have eyelids. the mouth is simple, but perfect. did I read correctly that this is your own design, made without a pattern? rock on. Smiley

this may help: so does everyone finish their seams?
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: trick for sewing stretchy knits with a basic machine? on: March 16, 2007 10:54:36 AM
there are many threads here with tips on sewing knits. Smiley
try searching "stretch fabric", "sew knits", or "sew stretch"
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bowie-esque Jumpsuit on: March 09, 2007 12:19:44 PM
first, points for wanting to make your own costume, more points for making a Bowie-esque jumpsuit.

Quote
I was just wondering if anyone had made something along these lines before? (Although I'm quite sure noone in their right mind will have.)
I love jumpsuits. I'm continually designing them. Smiley I've made many jumpsuits, out of different kinds of materials (does that make me not in the right mind?). I made one using a vinyl-coated lycra, which sounds similar to the fabric you're describing. I may be of some help.

I'm not sure if the catsuit pattern will work for what you're describing. Keep in mind that the challenge of a jumpsuit is your pants and top are connected, which means when you bend or sit your top is pulled down, when you reach up your pants are pulled up. I know that sounds obvious, but it really plays an important factor in proper fit. Smiley With a typical catsuit pattern the garment goes over the shoulders (tank or shirt style) which helps keep the top in place. With a tube top style you'll have to give enough ease so you don't completely lose your top when you sit. Smiley

p.s. - more points for even knowing what the Mighty Boosh is. my bf is threatening to grow his hair out like that. Smiley

JoAnn's sells it. I think SewTrue does too. both are online if you don't have a JoAnn near you. Smiley

your use of materials and colors is stunning -- the twine lacing, the raw silk edges, the lace. and the embroidery is outstanding. it's truly wearable art. very inspiring. my bf saw it and said "now that makes me appreciate couture". Smiley


(I have only one tiny critique: I would have liked to have seen a better fit in the corset itself so the gap of the back panels met more evenly, instead of so wide at the top and so narrow at the bottom. but that may be resolved with a better lacing.)

fantastic job. I marked it in "my favorite projects made by other people" list in my profile. Smiley

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Non Sew Tulle Tutu Question on: March 08, 2007 12:07:02 PM
there are some links and info on non-sew tutus in this thread that may help: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=154582.0

as far as cutting it, I suppose you can do either. it just depends on how fast you need to work and how detail oriented you want to be. Smiley the tulle is going to be all bunchy anyway so you're not going to be able to tell if you're a 1/2 inch off somewhere.

I have nothing to add except that I love saying "pee-pee teepees" Smiley

I like how piecing them together made a sort of 80s punk look.
nice job. Smiley
