wow - that's exactly what I want but I'm afraid that pieces 1 and 2 won't match up then...

oh, i see what you're saying. duh.  Smiley

i would measure the length of that part of the seam as is, then measure it with your alteration.
if the altered seam is longer, then i would add some fabric to the neckline on piece 2 and decreasing the angle of the side seam, like so:



will that work? uhng.. having trouble wrapping my brain around it now.  Roll Eyes

if you're really worried, i'd make a muslin of just the top part of the dress.

but if i'm understanding you correctly, i'd add some fabric just to the part you need it.. the top part of the side seam on piece 1. i have to do this all the time, since they make all commercial patterns for B-cups, which i am not.

93  Re: harold & the purple crayon pj pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: May 21, 2006 12:52:16 PM
i traced the shape of my favorite pjs.. and then shortened them once they were sewn together, and added the cuffs and ribbon. the curve is deeper on the back pieces to account for your butt.  Smiley

94  harold & the purple crayon pj pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by noelle on: May 20, 2006 06:34:23 PM
i had to buy this fabric as soon as i saw it.. the colors immediately made me think of "harold & the purple crayon" which is one of my all-time favorite kids' books!!

super easy to make, and sooo comfortable.



and here they are on me. i wanted them short for summer. it's already reached 100 in texas.  Roll Eyes

are you kidding? my stitching is totally crooked & uneven.. but most people won't notice the flaws in your work like you do.   Tongue

i had to make a lemon meringue one for my dad's birthday, since he is on a diet. guilt-free dessert!!




(and here's another view of the top)
i colored the meringue and crust with a fabric marker. i think next time i'll go a bit shorter, though. it is a gigantic piece of cake. hahahaha.

you inspired me to make some little cake boxes..

here is the chocolate one. it has a layer of fudge in the middle, and chocolate sauce over the top. this one opens from the top part.






and here is the white & purple one, which opens in the middle.

99  help with Lava Lamp costume mechanics? in Halloween Costumes by noelle on: September 24, 2005 01:29:32 PM
i'm thinking of going as a lava lamp this year, but only if i can be a working lava lamp.

any thoughts on how to go about it?
the cheesy route would be balloons and a fan, but.. i dunno.

i will probably have a battery-operated light shining from the bottom.
here's my rough sketch of where i will be:

100  Arrr! Pirate Kit for all Ye Land Lubbin' Mates! in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by noelle on: May 01, 2005 09:59:54 PM
i found this to be perfect for my boyfriend's birthday.. he absolutely loved it!!
luckily, i have a key to his house, so i snuck the whole thing inside while he was at work one morning.

here is the treasure chest:





and here it is all set up:



lots of pics, so i made them links for slow connection folks.
i filled it with:

gems
oranges
sea shells
clay pirate coins
etched bottle of rum
pirate cutlass (also clay)
scurvy prevention pamphlet
pirate shanties (ok, it was really a ray charles cd)
beach towel (sorry, the pirate flag was out of stock!)
tickets to a pirate show (the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy movie)

and i had clues, like a treasure map and message in the bottle, leading to the treasure trove.
clue 1   clue 2   clue 3   clue 4
