SUPER CUTE FABRIC! I know there are some patterns like that on craftster and free around the internet, but my bookmarks are on my laptop and I'm at my parents'. Try looking up "swing dress." Or, you know, there are probably patterns you can buy but I have to alter store bought ones anyway, so I go with what I don't have to pay for.
Does anyone have any experience with the pattern on this website http://m-sewing.com/patterns-catalog/women/vests/tailored-vest.html ? To give craftster's search function a crutch, the pattern is 5016 Tailored Vest on the website Modern Sewing Patterns. I find the instructions SUPER confusing, and there are no pictures on how to put the pattern pieces together. I don't even know whether to make the "front facing" and "back neckline" facing out of interfacing, or if it's supposed to be a "facing" of the same type of fabric, because it doesn't specify. And don't even get me started on the welt pocket; I gave up and got all different instructions from elsewhere on the internet, I just have no idea where I'm supposed to place it. My mom and I have already got into a shouting match over the facing because she's retired now and has nothing better to do than treat me like I'm 9 and just learning what "lining" means (I'm 31, by the way, and just visiting for a few weeks). Please help to save my sanity and restore peace in my home!
I got this app earlier this year and it was amazing and worked offline, like when I was on the road. Then I had to do a factory reset on my phone and all the apps were lost, and KPD isn't available on Google Play anymore! There's the Stash2Go Ravelry app, but honestly, it's crap compared to KPD. I can download the PDFs but not access them from the app.
Also, as the the "advanced search", I'm looking for a corset waistband on skirts, so I type in "corset waistband" with the Clothing board ticked. It gives me 0 results, and I think this can't be right, so I just search for the word "corset" in Clothing, and also get 0 results. Seriously?
I'm moving into a room that's been freshly painted...in pastel baby pink. It's even a cold pink, and I have no idea what to do with it. I go for bold or exotic designs over elegant and lady-like, so I'm NOT looking for Victorian tea party or white-on-pink designs. My bedspread back home was red, orange, and black paisley. I had black curtains, and a big red bookshelf and I'd put gold paper on the back of it. In this new room, I have a choice for bedspread and curtains, and possibly a rug, and then whatever I can put on the walls. My closet, curtain rod, and desk are a light wood, pine? oak? not sure, but definitely not cherry. I can't do any painting of the walls or furniture, and I want to work with the pink instead of just trying to force something on it. Themes in my brain cloud are cozy, warm tones, boudoir, Arabian nights, Moulin Rouge, bohemian.
Hm, I thought I had replied to this, but maybe Craftster ate my post. I am already making a quilt out of some other t-shirts, but these shirts can't be used for it because of their size or different material (for the sweatshirt). What I'm looking for are people's suggestions for cutting out and reattaching the screenprinted logos onto other clothing so that it's flexible.
I would be interested in this! I went to my first shadowcast on Valentine's Day this year. If it's real soon, I might not, because I'll be moving, but maybe around October would be a good time to drum up interest, because a lot of smaller cities have shadowcasts on Halloween.
