That looks amazing on you. Great job Smiley. Can you breastfeed in that top? I have a nursling and I've been worried about making tops in non-knit fabric for fear that it won't be easy enough to nurse in.

It's doable, but not super glamorous. :p I might not wear it with a feeding-every-ten-seconds newborn, but for an older nursling who only tops up once or twice a day, it's fine. The  pattern would work well in a slightly stretchy fabric, too - not like a jersey, but one of those stretchy suitings, maybe?

And yeah, breastfeeding in dresses is a major pain. I'm planning to make some dresses by cutting a blouse pattern slightly shorter and adding a waistband and a circle skirt for a kind of fifties look. That should be OK for breastfeeding.
That's a good idea. I'll have to see if I can get something worked out.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Making a number of identical figurines on: September 13, 2013 08:22:04 AM
Hello, I am working with a friend who has a start-up publishing company. I help make some of her different merchandising items. One of her authors is publishing a book that involves minotaurs. He has asked that we make a small minotaur figurine to go with the book. We would like something that would give a good result and that can be easily replicated. I was thinking of making a polymer clay original and then using a mold-making compound to make a mold from the polymer clay original. I would then cast the molds in something like plaster of paris or perhaps resin. We've also talked about using an epoxy clay but we are wanting to keep costs down. I am not particularly experienced with polymer clay and wanted to see if you guys think this plan is workable before I spend a great deal of time making the original. Making completely individual figurines from scratch is not a viable option due to time constraints and the costs associated with this.

Thanks Smiley

That is fantastic. The level of detail and the care you took with all of the handsewing really paid off Smiley.

That turned out really great. I wish my mom had let me use the sewing machine when I was her age. I bet she'll be a really fabulous designer here in the next few years.

The flowers are a really nice detail. And they look like they'd be really warm and comfortable as well.

I agree with the other posters: it's a cute look but not appropriate for a more formal office environment. Perhaps you could experiement with 3/4 sleeve shirts? Or perhaps some other method of shortening up the sleeves so it still looks professional?

Of course if you work in a business casual environment or somewhere with a lax dress code then the sleeve mod should be just fine. You could make it a smidgen more formal by making sure the folds are really neat and crisp and the little tab thing is also as neat as possible (that might require ironing though). That still wouldn't work in a very dressy/professional environment though.

It looks soooo much better now! And the fit is fantastic.  The purse also makes a nice touch.

Great job. I typically prefer that method unless the shirt just needs to go in an inch or so. It takes forever and is more frusterating but the end result is worth it. You're right, your shirt looks like it was always intended to be in the smaller size. Smiley
