I'm not sure if this is where I'm supposed to post this but I hope so, lol.  This is the first in a series, these tutorials are not for sale, are my intelictual property, etc etc.

Ok, not my best tutorial ever or video taking for that matter but it'll give y'all the basic idea of how to make an A line hippyish dress using elastic thread at the bodice  Grin This movie is almost 11 minutes long and covers everything  pretty much start to finish and how to use elastic thread ::: nod ::: great stuff.

If you have any questions post them here and I'll answer them to the best of my ability.

Note in the video I have the bodice measurement at 45 inches, I really should have done 50 inches (remember there's elastic involved so it will still fit my 40ish chest measurement)

Note: when using 60 wide fabric  your fabric layout will be like this... selvages will be the top or bottom


The video tutorial is at
http://home.comcast.net/~sapphirestitches/tutorials/hippiedresstutorial.wmv
you'll need windows media player or something that will play a wmv file to view it.

Enjoy!

P.S. ...to see the list of great tutorials put together by starmeg (I just found this goodie this morning thank you again for putting them all in one post!)  goto http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76112.0

no problem, glad to help out, I just wish I didn't sound so nasal in it but I've got my sinuses going wacky today  Undecided  Dude it kinda freaked me out I'm a gemini so I'm like forever going to be youthful in my heart and mind but when I heard myself giving directions I was like "wow, I sound like so grown, when the heck did that happen?" rofl  Grin

I am sew glad folks are liking it, I'm one of those visual folks also.  Just trying to figure out what to do next, I know that even with written directions the video is sometimes the best thing,  the added bonus is that it can be watched over and over, lol.

Thank you so much for doing this, I had bought elastic thread but was too afraid to use it.  Now I'm not!  Smiley

Your tutorial was very entertaining! You are very funny so it made the tutorial easy to watch!  I really thought I was watching a 60's show when I saw the dress--I made plenty of those dresses back then, ha ha! My poor old Kenmore died this week, so I have to get a new machine.  I want to make one of these as I am sure by now the kids have raided the closet for all of my old hippies stuff!  Thanks--it was awesome to see that comfy easy styles never die (just like us old hippies!) hee hee
