11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: My unhealthy teapot obsession. (What to make out of this fabric?) on: March 09, 2012 06:36:11 PM
I can definitely envision a structured summer dress with white accessories, maybe something like:

(pardon the size, I didn't know how to re-size it)

if not a full-on dress in that print, I feel like you could make a voluminous high-waisted skirt, and wear a cute bustier white top.

if it helps at all, that piece is in the spring 2012 elie saab collection. you might be able to find a simpler design in the collection which may be easier to execute?
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do with this top on: March 09, 2012 06:21:06 PM
definitely prefer it as a shirt Smiley a wide black self-tie belt directly under the bust (e.g. empire waist) might be flattering, especially with a structured fabric.

I just.. have horrible hand-eye coordination lol.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Will taking off this piece of fabric cause a shirt to come undone? on: March 09, 2012 06:15:00 PM
as long as there's separate stitching underneath, I think you should be fine Smiley
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to sew a supportive cotton/hemp sports bra? on: March 09, 2012 06:12:42 PM
just curious, what are the long-term health consequences of wearing non-organic cotton or other materials? if you make it a pull-on style I think you'd need some sort of elastic--at least when I exercise and get sweaty, it can be difficult to remove tight sports bras.
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need ideas and suggestions for scarves. on: March 09, 2012 06:10:24 PM
use them like you would any large pieces of scrap fabrics--they're usually pretty long, but somewhat sheer (at least the summer scarves I own). I would only make anything from them if you like the fabric to begin with--there's no point in crafting something you wouldn't wear.

my best bet would be to just sell/donate them if you don't foresee being able to make anything you'd actually like to wear.
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: DIY alteration on a too revealing square neck on: March 09, 2012 06:05:59 PM
you could also remove the black ruffles and add your own that are longer. or instead of ruffles altogether, add some black fabric in a sweetheart neckline

you mentioned the problem might be that it's not suited to your bust? is the fabric loose to the point where it sags down a bit, making it more revealing than it's designed to be? that happens to me too sometimes, but your best option is to wear a bra that's more structured, or has some padding.
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help! Need some inspiration for this LYCRA :) on: March 09, 2012 06:05:20 PM
I went to a discount fabric supply store and saw some lycra fabric on sale for .99/yard. I chose 2 yards of a pale pink fabric with a cherry blossom motif--pretty, but not something I would have chosen if it wasn't on sale:

I'm hitting a wall as to what I can do with it--I've never worked with lycra or stretchy materials before. I'm young and have my own sense of style, so I probably won't make a calf-length A-line skirt. I just don't know what else to do with this fabric, and was wondering if you might have some inspiration or ideas?

If not I'll probably use it to play around with. my mediocre sewing skills can be replaced by my grandma's otherworldly talent, so any level of difficulty is fine. Thanks!
20  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Post about Scraps (I think) on: October 19, 2011 07:41:38 PM
I would either make something that takes up a lot of fabric (quilts? duvet covers?) or sell it on craigslist. Fabric is just fabric, and all those scraps are just taking up space and time. Unless you can think of something you specifically want to do with it, it's not worth holding on to. What Destri posted is a great idea--small projects you could sell would be nice. Just don't let it take too much time, or else it won't be worth it.
