Looks like this would be a fun first swap. I just sent in a questionnaire... I'm gonna have to make the first one some time between papers next week, but it'll be a nice study break.

Ahh, that's so awesome! If I saw it in a store I'd totally have to try it on.

Oh... duh... I don't know why I didn't think of that.  Roll Eyes

I have a fabric that only stretches one way, I obviously want it to stretch horizontally to account for the give in the bust/hips, etc. of course. I feel silly now. Tongue

Thanks.   Cheesy
26  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / "Direction of knit"? on: September 08, 2009 07:01:15 PM
This seems like a dumb question I should know the answer to, but whenever I google it or search here I just get stuff about knitting, which is... not what I'm looking for.

I have a burdastyle pattern (the lydia long-sleeve shirt) that has a couple of long arrows with a label that says DIRECTION OF KNIT. This is cool, but I really don't know what a "direction of knit" is. I know which way the fabric stretches (it's a "two way" stretch, I guess, since it only pulls one way) but I'm not sure if the "direction of knit" is parallel or perpendicular to the stretch.

27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cotton-y romper: how to put in a zipper? on: August 28, 2009 10:15:38 AM
I'm planning on making a romper/jumper/playsuit/whatever! some time in the next few weeks out of a light cotton-y (or basically just anything light and non-stretchy) fabric, something along these lines: http://www.rampage.com/Sleeveless_Romper_All_In_One/pd/np/24/p/1096.html I used to think they looked kinda dumb, but I saw a girl rockin' one at a music festival and was totally in love with it.

However, I'm still not a huge fan of the ones made out of a stretch/jersey material (which is what all the craftster and DIY tuts I can find on the internet are for). That particular look, cast in any of the fabrics I have, would remind me a little bit too much of a certain alliterative spandex-y store that I've had quite enough of for the moment... Roll Eyes

So right now I'm planning on finding/making a pattern for some shorts and/or a top, and piecing those together. The part I'm kind of ehh about is the zipper -- I'm guessing since I'm using a non-stretch fabric, I'm gonna need a zipper if I want to get into this thing, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get away with doing just a short zipper down to the top of the "shorts." If I put in a zipper that goes over a horizontal seam, how do I do that? Would I have to leave the back of the shorts sort of unfinished when I sewed the two together?

I've only ever put zippers into purses, so I'm kind of at a loss here -- maybe this is a bit too ambitious.

If this was posted on the 23rd, it's probably just that the trial is over. :[ "Tuesday" might have been... well, last tuesday.
29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Dance Party in a Box on: July 04, 2009 06:15:59 PM
I thought of that, but I was a little hesitant because I was afraid of spillage (because we know from the wise words of Demetri Martin that glitter never goes away). I'm thinking body glitter could make an equally cheesy alternative - or I could buy some glitter in a sealed container so that I wouldn't have to worry about it.
30  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Dance Party in a Box on: July 03, 2009 09:48:16 PM
So I made one of my college friends a mix CD - primarily dancey/electro stuff. I had a few cardboard boxes lying around, so I thought it would be cute if I made it into a "dance party in a box" (she's spending the summer in Nebraska, she could probably use a little excitement).

However, since the primary components of a dance party are music and dancing, and I'm already providing one of those, I'm not really sure what else to put in there. I'm thinking maybe some confetti and a pair of shutter shades... possibly some cheap, goofy colored leggings... but I can't think of anything else. There's gotta be some goofy stuff I can throw in there!
