1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Heat Setting Speedball Ink? on: December 29, 2006 02:52:01 PM
Thanks for the help!  I don't have any fixer, and to be frank I don't know what it is, but I'll look into it.  Thanks again!
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Heat Setting Speedball Ink? on: December 29, 2006 02:28:56 PM
I've never screen printed before so I want to try my best not to screw it up the first time I try.  I bought a set of Speedball fabric screen printing ink.  The instructions say to "use a paper or cloth interface and iron" properly heat-set the ink.  My question is, what is a paper or cloth interface?  Can I just use any scrap of cloth or is it something special?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you make a bubble skirt? on: December 27, 2006 12:23:47 PM
I don't know how well I can explain this, but I'll try.

I've seen bubble skirts in stores and this is how they look like they are made.  Make two identical skirts and attach them to one waistband, layered one on top of the other.  With a rectangular strip of fabric slightly shorter than the circumference of the bottom of your skirt, attach it to the hems of both skirts while gathering the hems to make the bubble.

I know that explanation is horrible and probably confusing.  Sorry.  Undecided
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you do that shiny foil effect? on: December 27, 2006 12:13:43 PM
I don't know how to do the shiny foil on t-shirts, but CBGB's stands for Country, Bluesgrass, and Blues -it is a famous punk club in New York City. OMFUG stands for: Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers.

It was a famous punk club.  I heard that it closed.  Sad

I'm not really sure, but I think that's screenprinted.  Maybe with metallic ink?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question About How to Make this Simple Top on: December 27, 2006 12:08:55 PM
Okay, so this top looks relatively easy to replicate.

I just want to make sure that I understand how it's made, particularly the bottom.

Is it just a rectangle of fabric gathered and attached to a bandeau with straps?  Or should the bottom be cut in more of an a-line for it to hang that way?

Any help will be appreciated!  Smiley

It's soooo simple.  I just tied a strip of scrap fabric around my neck and folded the dress straps over the front of the scrap.  Then I just wrapped the tails of the straps around my underbust area a couple of times and tied it in a bow in the back!  I hope that was clear enough for you guys to recreate it!

I finally took some pictures of my dress with my favorite way (thus far!) of tying it!  Sorry for the horrible mirror pics.  Undecided  The dress looks so much better in person.


(I didn't feel like having a head today.  Wink)


The color is off in every one of these pictures.  The color looks like this:


Thanks so much for the awesome tutorial, rostitchery!

I finally made this dress yesterday and I looooove it!  Alas, I have no one to take pictures for me and I can't figure out the self-timer on my camera.  Undecided

I just ordered some fabric from fabric.com, so hopefully I'll be able to make this dress by this weekend.  Not that I have anywhere to go; I just really want this dress!  Wheeeeee, I'm so excited! Grin
