1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Gripper rubber/silicone thingy... to prevent ride up? on: September 23, 2008 06:38:24 PM
Thank you so much for replying! For a minute I thought I was imagining this thing!

It actually IS a type of footless thigh high that I am trying to keep up! I made a sort of thigh legwarmer type contraption to prevent my thighs from rubbing too much and chafing when in skirts/dresses. Its very stretchy and snug, but with the rubbing of the legs it starts sliding down within minutes! I dont know where to get liquid silicone. I thought of putting rubber cement on it, but its so messy, and I dont know if it will hold up in the wash.

I assumed there was something to buy in the fabric store to give it some type of grip since I see it inside bras and thigh high stockings?  Huh

I know some of the strapless bras have this gripper stuff, that looks like silicone painted in the inside of the bra band to prevent it from falling. Does anyone know what that is or how to get something like it inside a garment to prevent it from riding up or slipping down?

These pants are awesome! I just want to know how do you get the grommets in them? Do you have a professional grommet setter or do you use the hammer type for these thick pants?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: solution for rubbing thighs under a dress on: September 12, 2008 09:40:13 AM
I am bringing this post back alive cause I have a similar issue... I found a product that is exactly what I want and without having a tight bike short to dig into my belly area. They're called Luvees and is like a legwarmer type thing for the thighs... http://www.luvees.com/Store/LuveesStore/Custom.aspx?id=2afa9e45-2d41-48ae-99ff-d149f1e2a415


I want to try to make some cause these things are only sold online. They dont look THAT hard to make but I dont know what kind of material to use. I would rather not use lace, cause then I would have to add another layer, and alot of fabrics would start to wear down with the thighs rubbing alot.  Can anyone recommend a thin stretchy durable fabric?

Has anyone come up with a pattern for this? The only pic showing up for me is of the finished product and I dont have anything like this to trace.

Wow, you make the nicest clothes on here, totally my style. I love pencil skirts but dont wear them due to my lack of "curves" at any rate you make it smoking hot!

Beautiful job on this!

I am in LUV with the strawberry one! Are my eyes deceiving me or are there pockets on some of them? If so your fabric matching skills are ridiculous! I never owned an apron before but I want one now!

Thank you SO much! Something so simple can be such a problem! I have a ruffler and it was doing this curvy thing where it trails off the fabric and I didnt know how everyone got theirs so perfect! I will try the basting method! Thanks a million!!!  Cheesy

I cut a long piece of fabric.. an inch wide.. i'm not sure how long.. then i basted all the way down the piece in the center. then i just pulled to ruffled and then pinned on the bum and sewed in a zig zag stitch over the basted line =]

Thanks Veggie. I finally found her instructable on it and the step by step instructions helped me in spades!  Its at http://www.instructables.com/id/Jiffy-Beach-Cover-Up-made-from-and-old-towel/

She doesnt put the back on a fold at all, but I guess it can be done that way as well. I am going to attempt this with some black regular fabric as a shrug for another dress to try it out. Thanks a mil for the easy pattern!
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Euro Pro 100 serger or side cutter foot? on: May 28, 2008 01:17:51 PM
Yeah whatever fits, usually works! I had a heckuva time getting the Huskvarna stuff from the sewing center at Joann's though. THe woman kept asking me what sewing machine I had and I said Kenmore and she had a hissy fit saying "These CANNOT work with any other machine.!" SHe wouldnt even sell it to me!  Angry  I had to go back another day when she wasnt there so I can talk to someone nicer. Thank goodness Joann's is only a mile from my workplace so I am in there almost every week on my lunch hour.

I have the Kenmore 16231 (http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_02016231000P?vName=For+the+Home&cName=Sewing+Machines+%26+Accessories&sName=Conventional+Sewing+Machines)

One of the reviews for it reads:
I'm glad I got this machine. My MIL purchased an expensive Janome for xmas and wondered at how similar our machines are. She learned from a Janome dealer that they are basically the same model both built by Brother. I think she was a little disappointed that hers cost so much more and she could have had a Kenmore!

So I guess it is a Brother? Either way, it has loads of good reviews so I am happy. I'm a beginner but since getting it I have done all types of things, I wouldnt dream of sewing. Even for my son's birthday this weekend i made all the goody bags out of coordinating fabric! Something I have NEVER even fathomed doing before when I could get the plastic bags easily. This machine makes me actually WANT to sew.  Cheesy
