1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / pronunciation of the word recon on: October 28, 2008 04:20:13 AM
I need help from native speakers of English.
How do you pronounce the word recon (as in reconstruction)? is it [ri:kən] or [rekən]?
Thanks a lot.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / summer dress - first post on: June 30, 2008 05:09:04 PM
This is my first post and apparently I'm only allowed to post links. Will try to post more instead of just drooling over what everyone else has made Smiley
Well, I had this huuuuge weird apron-dress thing that I got from my granny and I made a dress from it. No pattern, just a lot of pinning and repositioning the darts. First I wanted to make buttons all the way down to the hem, but I gave up when making the first buttonhole, so I just sewed the rest of the front together. Just enough space to squeeze myself into it without a zipper or buttons Smiley
Hope you like it, I do.

and the neckline:

In all my excitement, I forgot to snip the threads, sorry.
I'm wearing it tomorrow for a girls' day out  Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / home-made dress form on: October 19, 2007 08:13:41 AM
I saw a couple of tutorials on how to make your own dress form and decided to give it a try. Last night, my boyfriend wrapped me up in self-adhesive tape (alternated layers of painters tape and normal see-through adhesive tape). It turned out great, until I filled it with insulation foam from a can - polyurethane. then my clone became a bit distorted overnight, when the foam expanded (I seriously had no idea that this polyurethane foam thingy expands so much..). Centimeter-wise it is still ok, but it became more round - my stomach is much more flat when you look at my profile. Since I am a total newb in sewing (started less than 3 weeks ago when I bought myself a sewing machine), I would like some advice on how the slightly distorted shape of my dress form can influence my sewing. Do you think I need to make another one or can I keep the one I made? Thank you for your answers. As soon as I learn how to post pictures, I'll post some things that I have made on the forum Smiley sewing is so much fun!
