Just have your mom let your partner send to her work. No excuse not to do this most fabulous swap. I have partnered with a lot of younger girls who are about a grandchilds age. This is not a place to be paranoid. Have your mom pm me.

Hmm.... I've been looking at this swap but I can't decide whether to join it or not. There are a couple questions I have about how the skirts and things are made that I just can't figure out. Tongue

Do you use an actual skirt as a base and add scraps on top of it, or do you just have a waistband to work off of? Do you hem the fabric first or leave it raggedy and scrappy? What other things can you make besides skirts (I think someone posted a vest here on Craftster- would that be acceptable for the swap)?

I love the style of everything- it's the mechanics that are confusing me! Cheesy

vests hats bags hey even a poppet with a gibbous outfit would be a hoot. I even thought of gibbous faerie wings  Roll Eyes but this needs to be wearable and fabric -esc....you can make a scrappy scarf or capelet or bustle or jacket or arm / leg warmers....its trash punk faerie princess meets wonderland of feral fabricated madness! lol....you could probably if your really good gibbous out some shoes the possablilites are endless! its basically collage with fabric needle and thread art....with found objects ( make sure they wont hurt the wearer negative feedback if they get stabbed! lol) heirlooms pretty things mixed with not so pretty to make pretty....Its basically glorifying history of cloth and as it grows older it is still beautiful type deal....

What a great way to look at it. The whole idea of mending and re-making clothing has totally disappeared from our culture, so our clothes have no history at all.

You mentioned that heavy applique and over-stitching would make garments smaller in size, and I can see how that would be true. Do you have any idea how much to allow for? I'm guessing it'd be at least 1 or 2 sizes, depending on what kind of garment and where it's being worked on. Would it be best to start way oversize and plan on taking it in at the end if necessary?

I plan to ask my partner for measurements and a couple of photos of them in different positions, standing sitting etc. I will probably start off of an existing garmet, but depending on my partner's wishes, may be able to try from scratch, though I don't know exactly how to make clothes.. Last pattern I sewed was in 7th grade home ec. LOL

yes that is what i do when i make a heavy altered and embellished garmet. You aren't allowed alot of strech room either so try not to work with knits *or at least have the idea that they wont stretch like knits usually stretch..... And dont let your tension on your threads be to tight or they will just pucker your fabric to bits  if your doing it without free motion embroidery. Remember if using a free motion foot to drop or cover your feeddogs (sometimes i use my feeddogs for help on some control) and drop your length to 0. You can also stitch with a zig zag or other fancy stitches for different effects! Remember this is your own couture design have fun and be fancy free with it! lol... I have made quite a few gibbous style outfits *sadly i didn't have a working camera while i had them* but i do now! lol*doesn't help much*  but they are alot of fun! Alwaysinspired made me a real sweet one for a personal swap you can see it here http://inspiringadventuresofalwaysinspired.blogspot.com/2010/02/woodland-faeries-goodies.html ( you gotta scroll a wee bit) I have also made an altered book for a past swap that you can see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299647.80   ( scroll down till you see robotarsonist post and pictures

OMG that journal is fabulous. Can you modify the post to put a space after the colon so the link works?

I don't know how long that took, I was amazed, it is ALL eye candy.
