1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / polka-dots - woohoo! on: August 09, 2007 11:04:12 AM
This is the first dress I've ever made - although I had lots of help from my mom. I think it turned out quite well  Smiley

Side view:

Close up of the bodice:

Again, ignore the hair  Wink It was air-drying.

I used New Look 6699. It was a pretty good pattern, but called for WAY more fabric than was needed. I ended up shortening the skirt by at least a foot (I'm short  Embarrassed ). The straps were also way too long, and I think they look kinda weird in this position. And the loop around the rouching (is that even the right word?) kept moving to the sides so I got fed-up and sewed it into place. It looks kinda strange that way, but at least it's not constantly moving around.

Woohoo for first dresses!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Music skirt on: August 09, 2007 10:58:11 AM
I got this fabric for about $2, so I decided to make a skirt for twirly dancing purposes  Grin

Don't pay attention to the hair; my hair falls out if I blow dry it, so it was air-drying Tongue
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Metric cross-stitch on: July 16, 2007 04:21:49 PM
I came across some old Aida cloth a while ago and was bored so I decided to make use of it.

The quote is from a Metric song...I don't feel like double checking right now but I think it was Soft Rock Star.

It still needs to be ironed and theres some pencil marks I can't seen to get rid of... Undecided

Now I'm stuck on what to do with it.
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Pattern help!! on: July 04, 2007 04:24:53 PM
When a pattern says "with nap" or "without nap", what does that mean?

My mom and I are planning on making some dresses - I'm a total noob but she was a seamstress in Poland so she's helping me out...but she's never used an English language pattern and we're completely lost.

Please help?  Huh Kiss
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Piggy on: July 02, 2007 10:47:08 PM
I've been trying to find a cross stitch chart (or even a pre-made example) for a cartoonish looking pig, but I'm finding it impossible. Does anyone have (or know where to find) such a thing?

I will love you forever and ever and ever.

And ever.
