1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: Floral Stripe Dress on: May 05, 2011 08:26:33 AM
Giiiiiiiiiiirl, you are adorable. And that is a great dress. Not to be a creeper, but I lurk Fatshionista and see your OOTD posts sometimes and they are always super-fab.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / How to make gigantic floofy drawstring pants on: December 24, 2006 10:37:30 AM
I'm thinking about doing a cosplay of Vivi from Final Fantasy 9. He has really, really puffy pants. I'm thinking of even doing them bloomer-like with elastic at the ankles to accentuate the poofy.

Can anyone reccomend a pattern or how to change a pattern so I can get me some poofy pants? Smiley Thank you!

those look soooooo cool! i would love to know how you did it if you don't mind sharing.

I kind of just worked as I went... Cut the canvas off and placed it a million different ways until I was content.  Grin

I hate throwing away my old Converses. They always carry so many memories. These are from the 8th grade. Notice all the painting and the Sharpie on the sides.

Since they had bunches of holes in them and were otherwise unfit to actually wear, I decided to tear them up and make them into something new- slip ons.

They're constructed entirely with hot glue, though, so I don't know how they'll hold up. We'll see; I'm wearing them out tonight.
5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's your Etsy shop doing now? on: December 03, 2006 12:22:38 PM
Anyone else having trouble with Etsy right now?
I kept on getting this message:
FAILURE: Exception occured Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/emid/MethodCaller.py", line 79, in __call__ File "/home/svnuser/emid.installation/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/emid/SQLInterface.py", line 142, in wrapped return SQLInterfaceFunc(tmpl, a) File "/home/svnuser/emid.installation/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/emid/SQLInterface.py", line 305, in getOneThing desc, results = procSQL_return_one_record(sql, args) File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/emid/Resources.py", line 153, in procSQL_return_one_record File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/emid/Resources.py", line 267, in fetchone ProgrammingError: Flagrant System Error: Are you sure this listing is in active mode?

...Even when I clicked on the "Help" button. X_X
Now it gives me that when just go to the website itself.
Any advice? I'm trying to set up shop now but I guess I can't...

Could someone give me the contact info for Etsy so that I could get this sorted out?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Whats your size/challenge? on: January 28, 2006 06:06:47 PM
I'm anywhere from size 20 to size 24 depending on the brand... but my big challenge is my unproportionally large bottom- I have to make skirts longer in the back because if I don't, it falls higher in the back and looks quite funky-in-a-bad-way.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to make a petticoat? on: January 29, 2005 10:07:56 AM
how many yards of tulle did you use? Huh

I bought 10 yards, because that was what a tutorial on making net skirts said to do, but I only used about 4 yards of it. I cut a piece into fourths and sewed it on in ruffles.

I actually took an old t-shirt and cut it beneath the arms and sewed net on it in ruffled layers and put a shoelace through the hemmy thing at the top. It works. It's a little *too* big now, I knock things over wearing it. >.>

That is completely sexy and I love it. <3

http://costume.dm.net/ (this has tutorials for elizabethan petticoats, and other clothing, but i'm not sure if that elizabethan ones are the right style for an egl costume)

http://gothfashion.info/ (this site may have it's own tutorial, but they also have forums with a diy section so it may be worth looking there for a tutorial)

http://www.farthingales.on.ca/costume.html (again this has period costume patterns but i'm not sure of the difference in styles)

and these are what i got when i searched:-

http://demode.tweedlebop.com/crinoline.html

i don't know if any of these will be of help, hope you find what you're looking for regardless - i've been meaning to try making a crinoline myself but never find the time.
i'd love to see your costume when you're done, i love egl style clothing (^_^)

Thank you, I'm probably gonna make a net skirt from the http://gothfashion.info/ site and see if that'll work.
