1  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! on: January 13, 2008 11:44:26 AM
Thank you so much for the advice, I really appreciate it! I think I will make the trip to the store; it really is time that I got my driver's license, ha.

Hi everyone! So I'm planning on making a dress for my semi-formal (junior prom), and this pattern is the one that I'd like to make, too!

I plan on shortening it up a bit... anyways. I also have a few other patterns in mind! I have a couple months to decide on something, but I don't want to wait until the last minute.

I'm fairly good at sewing although I've certainly never attempted a project of this magnitude before (I'm probably over-confident, but I have a backup dress, so I have nothing to lose!). Sadly, I know very little about fabric. What fabric would look the least cliche (somehow, I want to stay away from satin) but still look dressy? Tulle is usually used for trim? Is it a terrible idea to order fabric online - should I convince my dad to drive me to the distant Joann's, instead? Thanks in advance for whatever help you can give me; I hate to be so clueless, but it's better to ask questions now than screw up later! :]

I've been considering this as my first sweater. I am dying to knit a sweater but I don't want to try something too frustrating! May I inquire as to which size you knitted, since you said it was turning out too large? It looks really nice in a solid color!

This is fantastic and very flattering on you. I especially love the sleeves; all of those stars really show dedication! I read your blog (I was intrigued!) and you really jumped a ton of difficult hurdles - especially the color problems. Great job!

I've never knitted lace before but Branching Out looks like a really good starting pattern! I think I might give it a go. Thanks so much! (Other suggestions are still welcome, of course.)

Also, the yarn was wonderfully cheap - 8 Canadian dollars for all of it. If you're ever in Quebec, visit Magasin de Fibres L. B. Inc. The woman who works there is really pleasant!

Hi, I'm Ally! I'm sort of new to Craftster. I'm 16 and I really like to knit, among other things. :] I'm not a fantastic knitter but I learn fast! Maybe you can help me...

I bought some (about 150 meters, I'd estimate) weird yarn in Montreal. In the store, the woman will assemble a yarn that you choose by putting together different strands. I was really intimdated and I've forgotten all my French this summer so I just picked out something she had already made. I have no idea what it is made out of! It's really sparkly though. I'd call it about fingering weight.

Still, it's a bit of a pain to knit with. I was about halfway through one mitten of Corazon but the mitten was small and stiff so I frogged it (I also realized that I wouldn't have enough yarn to make them much bigger). So I've been trying to think of what would work with this yarn but I really can't figure it out! A hat pattern of my own invention? A stripey scarf? Can you guys help suggest anything?

I'm too new to post pictures, but you can see the yarn here!

Thanks everyone!

Thanks guys! I was talking to my friend yesterday and we've decided that it is unlikely that somebody actually stole it, despite what my teacher said. I think someone might have broken it and then thrown it out in embarassment, because that seems slightly more likely. But I'm glad you like it, I spent a lot of time on it. :]

Hi! I'm Ally, I'm 16 and I'm new to Craftster - I signed up for sewing help, but saw this forum and I knew I had something to contribute!

This is a stained glass project I did this past year. I was sophomore in highschool and unfortunately I won't be able to continue glass as a junior - I've opted to take higher level photo and studio art classes instead and don't have time to continue glass (I'm not that good at it, anyways!). This is the only picture I have of my swan. When I went to get it on the last day of school, my teacher informed me that it had never been framed. Apparently someone stole it. I was really upset at first, but I guess the joke is on them, since it isn't very well made, heh. Hopefully you like it, though!
